The search screen then appears.
Clear any previous search selection by tapping the "Clear" button.
You may enter any of the following in your search:
- Distance from your current location, use the virtual numeric keypad at the bottom of the screen to enter a number. The number is in kilometres but may include decimal fractions. Therefore a distance ".3" represents 0.3 kilometres or 300 metres.
- Suburb, use the virtual keyboard at the bottom of the screen to enter a suburb search string. The string will match any part of the string in the suburb of a location. Therefore "water" will match "Waterfall Gully".
- Location Name, use the virtual keyboard at the bottom of the screen to enter a location name search string. The string will match any part of the string in the suburb of a location. Therefore "churro" will match each outlet of "Chocolateria san Churro".
- Location Type (Tourism, Chocolate or Café). Tap on the "Location Type" spinner to see all the choices. You are presented with six choices consisting of one, two or no location types. Selecting no location type will not apply any selection on the basis of location type. Selecting a single location type will show only those locations matching that location. Selecting two location types will return all locations matching either type. For example tapping on "Tourism & Chocolate" will return all Chocolate and all Tourism locations that match the other criteria.
Tap on the "Save" button to have the application retrieve the locations that match all the criteria. For example if you have entered "1" in the Distance from your current location and select "Tourism & Chocolate" on the location type spinner then you will retrieve all locations that are 1 kilometre from your reference location and have a location type of either "Tourism" or "Chocolate".
If no locations are selected you will see a message advising you of this. You will be required either to edit the search fields or tap "Clear" to clear the fields. You may also choose to go back to the main app with changing the search criteria further. Do this by pressing the down arrow to remove any keyboard and then pressing the back button to return to the main app.
