Simple do indexed search. Even Fuzzy search in Russian!

So you're happy with your android phone, right? but is the Android ecosystem good enough for you to give up on your laptop PC for a Tablet? If you're a power user that's not an easy Yes, since Android devices are still catching up on performance and features that PC delivers and power users enjoy eating for breakfast, like: fast multi-tasking, heavy web sites surfing, advanced graphics editing, software development, and a Desktop Search. The new AndroSearch app brings to Android full text search capabilities over Office and PDF documents, and all other files stored on the device. Closing a gap left by the Google Now Search app which seems to ignore local files completely, choosing to focus solely on search over files in cloud services. AndroSearch, still in Beta, has additional features on top of the core files search: + A Recently Modified Files View - a fast flat view of all files in the device SD card. Sorted by when they were modified (pictures you took today, files you downloaded a minute ago, a document you recently edited). + Apps Search - Search the apps you have installed by name, but also and in apps’ description on Google Play (Search "game" to see all the games you have installed). + An instant Search experience, which users expect as a default now days. + Recently Installed Apps View, So you could easily get to the app you installed two days ago but can't remember its name. + Find in files By Metadata - Search Office documents, Music, and video files by Author, Title, Artist, Album. supported files format: doc, docx, pdf, odt, epub, mp3, mp4. + Andro Search is commercials free. Development road map includes: contacts search, misspelling handling, and integration with other apps. With AndroSearch the pro Android choice, for power users, is now a bit easier than before ;)

20MB limit on PDF indexing From the FAQ: "AndroSearch will not index the content of text/binary files weighing above 50MB (20MB for PDF files)." This is exactly what I need this app for. Too bad there's a limit because the indexed searching gives results instantly.

does not show all the occurrences of the searched file based on a substring, or file extension.
