    Hi, back, and welcome to the forum! Good to "see" you and I hope you enjoy your visits.

    Can you tell us in which app you are trying to find something? Each app works on a stand-alone basis and don't interact with others. And, some may not have a search function.

    However, if you tell us in which app your are looking, someone will hopefully have that app and be able to assist you.

    In general, let's say on a web browser, reading a news, and you want to find a word.

    Oh, in Safari its pretty easy (and well done by Apple). When in Safari and at the article, tap on the search bar. Your keyboard will come up with a place to type in the search term. Like this:

    At least, this is what I do on my iPad3 running iOS 5.1.1. Hope this helps.
