Mimics old Treo search
Authored by: jonathanberger on Jul 19, '08 03:27:19AM

Palm did a study when they first released the Treo, and found that in address books even as large as 300 contacts, typing the pattern "jsm" for "John Smith" surfaced a single contact more frequently than any other method. (first letter of first name, then first two letters of last name) They built their search for this pattern to work automatically.

Hopefully Apple will add this someday, but until then, typing "j sm" works pretty well.
