I should add that the executed search returns results in decent speed. The delay is in specifying the search terms not with the retrieval of search results.
I don't have an iPad so all I can say is that I haven't seen anyone report this as an issue. It works fine on Android.

I was testing my own project. I had a computer malfunction yesterday, so will have to try out a sample project when my computer is back from repair. Will post an update later in the month when I can return to my trial. Thanks.
