Hey guys,

Anyone know if iOS is capable of executing a control find function like on a computer? I read documents quite often on my phone and searching for key words would be awesome. Thanks

Depends on the app being used. In Safari you use the main address bar at the top. Enter your search term,scroll down the list and there will be some entries for results in this page or something like that.

You can also hit the Share button on the bottom of the page, then under the bottom section, there should be "Find on Page". But I always just use the Address Bar myself.

Are the documents stored directly on your phone? If so you may be able to swipe down on the homescreen and enter the words you need.
