Search Results Are Not Clean

Postby RiverKing » Tue Mar 01, 2016 3:17 pm

I just did a search with category=Financial and city=Allen. The search returned 7 items . . . in McAllen. I see how that could happen but it shouldn't. The search engine needs a bit of tweaking.

The current search implementation allows for partial searches on the text fields. Very useful, in my opinion. I don't need to know the exact way someone put a business in to pull it up.

For instance, I can type in "Theater" and it will show all businesses with "Theater" in its name.

Hi RiverKing,

The city search allowing partial matches is, I believe, an oversight. I can't recall right now if there was a reason why I did it that way.

Will ponder on that a bit more. If not, I'll disable partial matches on that field.

Thanks!

Russel do you plan on adding geo fencing with alerts so when I get near a biz with (legal) signage my watch/phone beeps at me?

The mobile app does that already. :headscratch

Like PawPaw said, our mobile apps (for iPhone and Android) have this feature implemented. You can grab a copy of them here: http://www.texas3006.com/mobileapps.php

Well the partial city search is great for quickly looking up a longer/split city name. What about adding a checkbox for exact phrase only?

I've been using the app since the beginning of February and it's never "gone off" when I get near a number of posting in the area I visit most.

Do you have it running as a background service or does the app need to be open for that feature to work.

Love the app and the DB :tiphat:

For now, when you open the app it will start the background service. At that point you can close the app and the service will continue to run. If you reboot your phone, you'll have to open the app back up to restart the service.

A future release will start the service on boot of the phone so that you don't have to reopen the app.

Cool. I reboot my phone often, so that was probably my issue.

I played around i the settings yesterday and wouldn't you know it as I'm driving home from work my Apple Watch starts buzzing.

Just need more people to start posting what they've found.

THANK YOU!!!

That app really sounds great! I don't suppose you have a Windows Phone version, do you?

Sorry, no Windows phone version. We don't (currently) have the in-house expertise to develop one, just iPhone and Android.

If I want to do an entry, I go to the MAP area and see if the new entry location is already entered. I do the same with trying to see if an establishment is posted prior to going there. Many businesses are under a holding company name and difficult to search.
