Search button in the mobile app
I would like to see some features in the mobile app. There is actually no way to search for tags/keywords/person etc. This is really annoying if you have thousands of photos which are all properly tagged. Even flickr and the synology ds photo app have this feature (and of course many more) in their app. I think its great that smugmug has an android app, but if this is version 3 and there is so little to do, maybe the apps should get some real love ;)
Recently we launched Search in our Android app, which allows you to search for keywords, folder names, galleries, title, captions, and more from within the app. You can scope your search to specific galleries, search your all your photos in your SM account, or search other customers that you follow (or those that follow you can search).
I’m marking this as Partially Completed since our iOS app doesn’t have search yet. Search in iOS is coming – stay tuned!
@mike: 2 months ago we announced that it was coming in the iOS app and that's still the case. As an iOS user myself, launching it on the Android app has made us even more eager to get this into the iOS app and our team is working as fast as possible to get it ready for launch. Stay tuned, just a bit longer!
It has been over two years since this post was declared partial and iOS was coming. What is the status?

We have been using SmugMug for two years-- our guys in the field need a system that allows them to quickly pull up photos by keyword. I HAD NO IDEA they could not do that on their phones until today. We are actively searching for another photo service that allows for search from a mobile phone. It is too basic a functionality to be missing. I am embarrassed and appalled.

Yes! Thank you! Love the search function!
The mobile app is of little value without a search function. Hard to believe that something this basic has been left out for so long.
+1 for the search functionality of the mobile app.
Sadly, I'm now searching google for a new photo management system with a better mobile app experience.
I really don't care about following other users or having anyone follow me. I just want to find the album I'm looking for quickly when showing pictures to clients.
O agree with Anshelmo. when SmuMug plan to upgrade the app to use Keywords. I use keywords very frequently on my homepage and it would be awesome cool if the app had the same feature..
Today I spend to much time searching for picture when I want to present for customers.

I agree with all of the comments. If nothing changes, I will leave Smugmug.
This is absolutely insane. As if I'm going to scroll through 12 years of photos to find on freaking album?! HOW DO THEY NOT HAVE SEARCH?!
Previous versions of the SmugMug Android app permitted searching. The current version does not seem to have a search feature. I am told by SmugMug support that there is no way to revert to the older version of the app. I simply want to search on folder name. The Android mobile app is a wonderful way to view and share photos, but without a search capability it is severely crippled. Providing search is urgent!

This feature is getting more and more critical as I notice that iSmug (the only app I know of that allows the user to search their SmugMug account) doesn't appear to be updated for iOS 11. Unfortunately without that update, the app simply won't run in Apple's latest operating system on the iPhone/iPad. Perhaps an update is coming, but most app developers have done this by now.
This is absolutely needed. I came to SmugMug from Flickr for certain features. Had I known that I and my publications are unable to search on our mobile devices, I would have never signed up for SmugMug. It is crucial in my line of work and unless this is added, I will be switching back to Flickr or another option.

SIMPLY A WAY TO SEARCH FOR KEYWORDS IN ALL MY PHOTOS. PLEASE !
I agree that a search feature is a must. After just migrating to Smugmug and importing thousands of pictures, it's crazy that there is no search capability in the Organizer. Should be a basic feature. I learned you can search outside of the organizer, but when you want to search to organize your collections, it is so time consuming to scroll through tons of galleries and folders.

I need both the search capability and the ability to show the file name to confirm that I have found the right file. I typically share my photos with other photographers on my tablet since that is what I carry around, not my computer.
Love the concept and flow of Smugmug but you have lost me as a customer, as I can't have control of the app/mobile view and keyword search is only available on my desk top. Whats the point of putting in all that time when the device used to search the web the most doesn't function properly?

Search capability in the app is crucial. I love the service, but have to be able to search by keyword.
John Lienhard commented
I second the request. It would be very helpful.
Add a search function within the Android and iPhone app. I have numerous folders & galleries which I would love to search.
It is challenging to recall exactly where all folders are and uses excess data while seeking.
