KitKat - search issue & work-around UPDATE (7-4-14) - Response from technical support - KitKat issue fix to be released soon. Thanks. 5 stars again when fixed. -------------------------------------------- Recently installed on HTC One (m7) with android 4.4.2. Search works fine on my old Samsung Galaxy S2 (android 4.1.2), but has blank results area initially on android 4.4.2. WORK AROUND:- Commence search; Tap near top of "empty" results area; Result opens up; Click "back button" to reveal all results. What a pain in the proverbial!
