Searching for search on the iPhone - where is it?

Posted by Tom Foremski - July 2, 2007

Seems like Steve Jobs forgot to add a widget to the iPhone - a search widget that lets you search the entire contents of the device. Unless it is hidden somewhere...and I can't find it.

There is no search function in the individual applications such as contacts and mail.

Why would Apple leave out easy to use search functions? Does it think that users can find stuff more quickly through alphabatetized directories? It's clearly been left out on purpose, right?
