I quite don't know how to search the forums with this questions.
I am looking for a better "search" command than "search ipad" offers.
I want my search to locate a contact if I enter the contact's street or address number from my CONTACTS. Any app or secret anyony have?
It's built in to the iPad!!

Go to 'Settings', 'General', 'Spotlight Search' and then check the boxes that you want to include in your search.
Then go back to the iPad's Home screen and 'flick' the screen to the right - i.e. spotlight search is the left of the normal Home screen.
From there you can enter the search terms that you want the iPad to look for.
Hope this helps, but get back if you have a problem...
Oh....nearly forgot ... welcome to the Forum...
This doesn't find my contacts when I enter their street name. Contacts is checked in spotlight.
Take a look at Advanced Contacts Search. $0.99 and does exactly what you want.
DontUnderstandMyIpad to the rescue - again.

ContactsXL will also do this (you can filter search results on any / all contact fields for your convenience) and gets my vote as the best alternative contact manager on iPad...
