Search both task names and notes by default

Suggest making the search function more google-like. I tried to search for a word within a note and couldn't find it. Had to select that I wanted to search there.

I would say Searching is one of the most important features in the app. Lose the advanced tab and search everything by deafult. Cheers.

+1 for Stuart's suggestion: I'd like to search into titles *and* notes by default. :)
Maybe you could add a preference item for this, if you think people would generally prefer to search only into the title.

also: when I search the forum "Ideas" for "search notes", the result list is empty, strange...

YES YES YES - *most* of the time I am searching for something in the notes.

I know about that noteContains, but I'm not typing that into my phone!!!

Yes, this is a good idea, but agree with norz that it should be a settings option so those who need/prefer it the way it is now won't be blindsided.
