I have the MP app on my phone and can't seem to find the forum search function. Anybody else, or am I just blind?

The search function is located on the very front page of the app. There are three colorful boxes at the top, just below the MP logo. The search function is the larger of the three boxes, on the left.

Nope. That one only searches routes and areas. Not the forums.

I don't think you can access the forum from the app. The app is designed to be useful offline and it was probably judged to not be worthwhile to cache the forum. There aren't any issues with using the mobile website.

Oops, yeah, there are no forum search functions on the app.

How to access forum search from the mobile app!  

When you access the forum from within the mobile app, you are viewing the website through the frame of the app.  You may notice that if you tap the forum link while offline, only a blank white page displays - cellular or wifi connection is required.  

There is no built-in forum search within the app, but you can navigate to search through the embedded website:  

1. View any forum thread  
2. Tap any user name (a)  
3. Tap the menu (b)  
4. Access the website search (c)  
5. Results include forum posts (d)

Yes, you can search the forums on the mobile app, as Annie pointed out. Easy to do.
