                • 搜索

                  下滑手势进入搜索,如果你打APP的名字,搜索页就会刷新。但是,标题行的位置会变化,导致经常按错自己想要的APP。

                  例如,下滑手势出现的搜索,第一行的标题行是搜索历史,你搜索APP,标题行就变成应用搜索,然后标题行位置上移了。

                  能不能固定标题行的位置,不论搜索什么都不会改变?

                  • 在搜索栏搜索时,优先建议手机应用,回车直接打开第一个应用而不是网页搜索

                    搜索应用最好可以以关键字来搜索而不是只能输入完整应用名,并且希望可以回车直接打开应用,回车网页很容易误操作

                          Allow the search bar to be placed anywhere on screen, not just the default top or bottom. I want it to be up to the user. for example, I want it a bit higher than the bottom towards the middle but I don't have that option m

                            Když vyhledáváme aplikace v telefonu, šlo by udělat aby se ve vyhledávání zanedbala diakritika? Děkuji

                              Searching for "gen" should be able to find app named "Société Générale"
                              Currently it works only, when typing "gén"

                                  • Option to REORDER/Disable Web Search Results from Search bar

                                    Use the search bar to search for Contacts or Apps.
                                    The search bar unnecessary displays results from Web on the top and hides the Contacts and apps behind the virtual keyboard.
                                    We can reorder search results EXCEPT for Web search results.

                                    There should be an option to disable or reorder the web search results so that one can search his phone efficiently.

                                        • Add duckduckgo to the search engines

                                          Just add duckduckgo as a possible search engine for the search bar.
