Description Thomas Perl (reporter) 2009-10-28 22:01:43 UTC



1. Open media player
2. Touch "Music"
3. Make sure the view mode is "All songs"
4. Search for a middle part of the song title
   (e.g. "Bedroom" for the song "Original Bedroom Rockers")


The song is found and "Bedroom" is highlighted.


No song is found, as the search function only matches the beginning.




Use cases where I would not be able to find a song I'm searching for:

*) The song title (errorneously) contains the track number
   => "03 Walking on sunshine" (search for "Walking")
*) I only know one artist of a song with multiple artists
   => "Kruder & Dorfmeister" (search for "Dorfmeister")
*) I know the remixer, but not the artist/song title
   => "Loser (Fatboy Slim Remix)" (search for "Fatboy")

Comment 6 amitkankani 2010-01-14 12:41:06 UTC
Confirmed to be fixed in the PR1.1 :)

it even searches for substrings, not only beginning of next words, so its a
good experience.

Can I mark the bug as closed, or I guess Thomas should do it once he verifies
it :)
