Search bar for long lists)

Can you please add a search bar for long lists (checked or unchecked)?

This has been a recurring one. I’m not entirely sure where to tuck it away without annoying the times you don’t need it, but maybe it’s possible our upcoming gesture shortcuts could somehow accommodate. (Search UI feels a little tricky though to do right within our minimalist framework.)

For the people who want this, how much of your needs might be satisfied if we supported your lists coming up in general iOS Spotlight search?

Any chance of a search function this time around? Having used Clear before for note taking and archiving useful links, I found that the lack of search became an increasing liability. Or is it there and I just didn’t see it?

I agree, I think this is a critical feature. A lot of apps have it built with a pull-down from the top (think iOS Spotlight, Things 3, Due). I think it’s a much more intuitive gesture to pull down to search than to pull down to go back. I think to go back should tap at the top, edge swipe, or press and hold.

Is there anyway to incorporate a search function to go straight to that line by entering a keyword. This would be amazing if you have lots of info to wade through. Like tags. Maybe you can have a shake to search function which brings up a search bar.

Merged your request here. Will be thinking on this one, I do think it’s probably complicated enough to get right that it’s unlikely to make it to the initial release. But perhaps in the updates roadmap.

Since we now have a swipe gestures on the list title for personalisation. Could we make the list title sticky and then swipe right to bring up the search?
