Every day, hundreds of millions of people make videos, take photos, send messages, etc. The amount of data resulting from the everyday Internet activity is amazing and mostly created by individual users. Fortunately, a lot of applications are providing searching or filtering capabilities to help users quickly browse and find content. Whenever an app creates or provides content, it comes with a search feature: Gmail, Google Calendar, Play Store, etc.
Although search is usually one of the main entry point in a mobile app, I regret to see a lot of mobile apps are not always implementing search in a comprehensive way. Specifically, I often end up having search results presented to me but don’t always understand why. In this article, I will introduce you to search results highlights, explain you why they are extremely helpful from a user point of view and how simple it is to implement them in an Android app.
