Search faster on mobile with a native search gadget

Updated on May 3, 2021

The ability to search is a critical requirement for any custom mobile app. The new native search gadget is a fast and responsive solution to that requirement. After you define which data should be available locally on a device, the data is synchronized to the device, so that search results are displayed immediately, as you type the query. Search results can be categorized and presented on tabs, and additional results are pulled asynchronously from the server when the device connects to the network. When you select a search result, it opens in the main webview of the custom mobile app.
