iOS Contacts search annoyances

There are two things to be aware of about Contacts search in iOS:

  • If you search from iOS will search both person name and business name.
  • If you search from global (spotlight) search iOS will only search one of these, depending on Contact type.

This is sufficiently weird and inconsistent that it may qualify as a bug.

In general search on iOS is "annoying". PalmOS did a much better job in 1997.
