When this feature was first released, I actually found it annoying because often I would flip back to my first page and then go one to far to the search screen. I just thought it wasn't valuable enough to be where it is. Then I decided to try it out to find contacts - the usual way was a pain, trying to find the contact icon, then the group, etc etc. The search worked great, taking me right to where I wanted to be after typing in only 3 or 4 letters. I'm interested to know how others are using this feature, maybe I can get some ideas to make it more useful to me other than contact searching.
