Came out today. Very cool app that allows you to search for contacts , apps, web links, etc that are on your phone. Simply press the home button once while a desktop view, key board pops up start typing. App will start searching after the second letter is typed. Very fast no problems with lock up or anything.

I agree with your assessment Crupp. Lightning fast and just what the iPhone needs.

Now if we could just get cut-n-paste functionality.....:)

I like it a lot, too. I actually ditched categories for this. It's much quicker than scrolling and waiting for the categories folders to load.

Here's the list of features from the authors page. Sorry, no email.

Features

Press the home (menu) button while you are on the SpringBoard to bring up a search bar and a keyboard. Type a few characters and tap to:

  • launch springboard apps (and webclips)
  • search contacts and dial their numbers with a tap
  • type in a phone number in the search box and hit "Go" to call
  • type in something like "yahoo.com" and hit "Go" to visit the page
  • type "g <words>" and search google

Ah, I get it.. name's a spin-off of QuickSilver. I love that app.

Anyway, I'm downloading this now. Looks promising.

Good stuff. I honestly didn't think I would ever use it but decided to DL it based on this thread. Now I use it all the time. Great app.

I love this app, but I can't keep it installed because it DEFINITELY causes me lag. I've tried it on several occasions now, and my phone invariably grinds to a halt eventually until I reset it.

It makes sense if this program is keeping an active database of safari history and what not. It must be bogging down. Shame, because it's quite useful. But not enough to endure lag, in my opinion.

I also uninstalled this app because it made my iPhone slower which is very sad because it is an awesome app. A lot of jailbroken apps seem to do that to the phone, ummm
