How to Use Find Text Feature on iOS 4.2.1

Feb 6, 2011 by

You’re avoiding Cydia because hoards of people are upgrading to iOS 4.2.1 so you decide to explore some of the features of iOS 4.2.1. One of the ones I’m looking forward to is the ability to find text on a web page.

Sadly, Apple did it wrong. Again.

  1. Go to Safari and visit howsmyapp.com (smiley face).
  2. Tap on the Google search box. (Yes, this is where Apple started doing it wrong.)
  3. Type in your query and under the normal Google searches, you find the queries on the page.
  4. Tap one of them and it highlights the word.

Apple did it wrong because I actually had to use Google to figure this out. And it’s very inconvenient.

Let’s hope Apple fixes it in iOS 4.3!
