Searching the TA Forums

Why doesn't the search tool for the forums work very well? For example, if I type the name of an app in the search menu, the right thread isn't always there. Is it just me?

If you go to the Advanced Search page and change "Search Entire Posts" to "Search Titles Only", then also narrow it down to which sub-forum you want to look in, you're far more likely to get an accurate result.

Yeah, adding site:forums.toucharcade.com to your Google search query seems to work the best.
