It doesn't work the first time. Do it again and it will work. I know, it's annoying.

Searching on an iPod touch is super annoying. I don't blame people for "not searching" because it's such a pain in the ass... and if you don't know what the problem is, you might think it doesn't work at all.

In my experience, you have to set up the search bar the first time even though you know it's not going to work. Type a letter, watch the bar disappear, and then just click search again, and go through the process a second time. On the second try, it's always successful for me.

If you're still having trouble, play around with the sizing. Sometimes you need to make things bigger to register correctly.

GOD SPEED... this is annoying.

Sometimes I just browse the forums instead of searching, even on a computer. The results that pop-up suck over half the time. I searched for adventures and platformer, I got match-3, racing, and relaxation apps.

I'd prefer the search option to be easily accessible like check out forums.mtbr.com the search takes up a huge box above all the forums.
