Developer’s response: In my opinion there is a misunderstand about the search option. When you tap Search you go to the gallery area where the keys (not the photos) are in alphabetic order, a lot of keys are about the cities, but others are about things like cars, signs, motel, museum, etc.,In this case you see all the pict with cars,signs.. etc., Other keys are about states, so you can see all the pict about texas, Kansas etc.,
