    Hi all, quick question. Am I being completely idiotic or is there no way to search for a film of interest in the movies app?

    I stream movies from my iTunes library which has roughly 200 films, is there no other way of finding the film I want other than scrolling through an endless list of film posters? This seems like a glaring omission to me, unless of course there is a search function that I am missing!

    Also as a caveat, I have the ipad1 and this thing can only handle showing about 10 film posters before having to restream again when browsing a large collection. Perhaps the ipad2 with more RAM is more efficient at this.

    Cheers

    Phil

    Are you forgetting the Spotlight search, when you swipe to the right from the home screen?

    I was under the impression that spotlight search only worked for files on your iPad? Does it also include files streaming from iTunes? My Movies library is roughly 300GB alone.

    Cheers
