Awesome that you are asking for feedback!
Personally my "search journey" would be improved if i could select the search item just by clicking on the list-item body
instead of just the title of the question.
Having a filter for time would be great. For example, when I search the App Store I want to see the most recent content, so I don't get widgets that are for older versions of Mendix. This is useful for blogs and the Forum as well.
Items from the last:
- 24 hours
- 7 days
- Specify: [Select a time span]
I often hear ppl saying it "feels" wierd.
I think there is a bit of a wierd UX leap when typing in field A and then the menu jumping out.
maybe wait for the jump after they've finished typing in the field?
I often use the search bar in the upper right of the screen, however when the menu jumps out it doesn't catch all letters you were typing into the search bar. This can be quite irritating. I'd rather finish typing in the search bar and press Enter or such before the menu jumps out with the results, just like Jason above suggests.
In addition, sometimes when you search for a term in the forum you get very old results as well and there could be situations where you'd want to only see more recent items. It would be nice if you could filter out based on creation data. For example: do not display all older than 2 years or such.
The search engine in the appstore is quite strange sometimes. I'd like it to be a bit more flexible. For example:
Mx modelreflection does show me the Mx Model Reflection module
Mxmodel reflection does not show me the mx model reflection module, but only this because it has reflection as a tag:
Nice to see you're asking for feedback :D
For me, it feels a bit uncomfortable that the results jump around because of the expand/collapse on hover. When I'm scanning through the results from top to bottom, I get interrupted when items expand and collapse.
Also, beforehand I cannot see what item will expand.
I like the fact that I can see more text before clicking an item, that's a good feature!
Created this idea post about the Appstore search functionality a while back, I still think it applies.
i would like to have an option to sort the search results. F.i. sort on last updated, sort on source. Sometimes you want the most actual on top, but sometimes i'd like to have the result from the docs above the results from the forum.
