thanks so much for removing this space waste and
provide more area for the
article. android phones usually have a (hardware) search button, most of
the time a magnifier symbol. this is used for searching the phone book as
well for browsers, etc. is there any thing why you do not want to use it?
Within the app, hitting the hardware search button already is used: it sets
focus to the search field (if we drop position:fixed header, then this
would also scroll you to the top so it's in view).
Note that this search button has been dropped from the software replacement
for the hardware toolbars in Android 3 (Honeycomb) and 4 (Ice Cream
It's also possible to provide a search hook so that the app can be
searchable from the global search screen, which can be gotten to via the
hardware search button on the Android home screen in Android 2.x, and from
the 'Google search' field on the home screen in Android 3 and 4.
We haven't done this yet, but I stuck a note into our bug tracker as it
might be a nice addition:
