Android Tip : Search everything on your phone with Andro Search

Andro Search (2)

One of the things Android OS has lacked is the ability to search (all through) your phone for a specific app. The inbuilt search widget directs you to Google, sometimes file manager apps have a sort of half baked search bar. It tries but doesn’t cover every corner of your device. I hereby present to you Andro Search, a universal Android Search app.

Below are some of its key features:

  • Files searching by name, extension, and Fulltext search INSIDE: PDFs, Office, ebooks , etc.
  • Contacts search by name, notes, emails, phones, postal addresses, organization.
  • Google Query Suggestions – get query suggestions to take your search online.
  • Highly tolerant of keyboard typos and misspellings.
  • Search files By Metadata – Search MS Office 2007+ and OpenOffice documents, Music songs, and video files by Author, Title, Artist, Album.
  • Recently Modified Files View – Care about recent files like pictures you took today, files you downloaded a minute ago, a document you recently edited? See them regardless of the folder they’re in, with the innovative fast flat view of all files in the device SD card, sorted by when they were modified
  • Recently Installed Apps View – So you could easily get to the app you installed two days ago but can’t remember its name.

… and the list goes on and on.

  1. I would have loved for it to be able to search every nook and cranny of a rooted phone too, the way SD Maid can. Then, I would give it a 100 % rating…

    A good, capable app, this.

  2. It’s been over 48hrs yet the app is still indexing files, worst of all it has consumed over 1GB of system memory.

  3. It doesn’t work with MarshMallow .

    This is a huge shame as the app has not been updated to solve this…

  4. Would love to be able to limit indexing to a particular folder on the SDCard and its subfolders, as the app took 48 hours to index one of our tablets. The app works great on Android 10 once the index has been created. Also, need to be able to copy the created index to new tablets that are setup identically.
