Due to the zooming in on the search box, the search icon becomes redundant as you have to zoom out again before you can click on the button. You may as well just hit enter.
Comment 1 Hampton Catlin 2009-08-01 19:23:01 UTC
This only really applies to the iPhone. Other phones require a specific search button.

I'm going to re-tag this as an enhancement, because we could make iPhone not show it, but keep it in.
Comment 2 Derk-Jan Hartman 2010-01-05 15:27:43 UTC
Do you want me to hide the button on the iphone ?
Comment 3 Hampton Catlin 2010-01-05 17:11:34 UTC
I think that we should keep the search button there. I think it is a useful UI bit. It helps the user know that its a search field and encourages editing.
