How can I search through all my information?

Published by Steve Litchfield at 19:21 UTC, February 16th 2006

Question:

Q. I've got quite a bit of information tucked away in my PIM apps, plus other office documents and general files on my Nokia smartphone. But how can I perform a global search for a piece of text? On my old Palm OS handheld, this was possible, is there not an equivalent in Symbian OS?

Answer:

A. There's no technical reason why Symbian (or Nokia) couldn't have provided such a feature, but they haven't done so yet. In the meantime, try a new third party utility, Mobile Search, which performs much the same task. It's a little slower than the built-in search in Palm OS, but it's improving fast and peforms a unique function.

any other ideas for being able to search the docs on an S30 3rd edition device? The link given in the answer is now pretty much a useless domain advert-site.

I am a recent refugee from Palm and am finding it difficult without the continuously-used global search function. I have migrated hundreds of documents with client info, and the S60 interface definitely needs the ability to search for a key word that I know is in the document(s) I need to reference.

So, please tell me there is a search function I can bolt on to allow me to find the bit I need in my quickoffice .txt files.

Cheers!
