Anyone use the Tapatalk app? Search issues?

I have been using the tapatalk app for awhile now. It makes posting and following threads essy. One of my issues with it is the search function. I just searched for threads about tiling over tile in a shower floor. The search result came up with dozens of threads, non of which were about what i searched for.
I have never tiled over tile and have some questions but know i will get chastised for not searching first.
Any tips on finding the threads.

Yeah. I am right now searching for the deflecto calculator. Can't find it anywhere. Searched goggle. Goggle links John bridge forum. I click the link and tapatalk opens to a thread that doesn't mention it.
Or i search the forum using tapatalk. It pulls up threads but nothing for deflecto.

I used the jb forum website main page. Typed deflection in the search bar and nothing comes up.

Guess i will need to start a new thread asking where to find the deflecto meter

I've not used Tapatalk, so I can't answer specific questions about it. What I can tell you is that if you use words that are very common to this site, like "tile" or "concrete", you're going to get a lot of hits from that search. I typed in "tile over tile" in the advanced search engine and got over twenty pages of threads.

You really have to have more specific words to find something like that, or just start a new thread if you want. I, for one, wouldn't chastise someone wanting help who can't get it through the search feature.

Someone else might have a suggestion as to how to search for something like that, specifically using Tapatalk.

Here are 2 different results using the app. I might be getting rid of it.
Both searches were for tile over tile one was "tile over tile"

I haven't gone through the threads to see if those words were in the post let alone the complete phrase.

I'm not sure if you can search an actual phrase. I thought it hit on individual words, which means "tile" would get you a lot of responses.

Again, someone might correct me on that, or know a better way to search for what you're wanting.

I know tapatalk has a nice interface but it's a 3rd party tool. I tried to get support from them once and hit a brick wall very quickly.

Searching the web:

I use TT occasionally. To search in a specific forum, go to that forum and enter search terms at top of page in search box. I found deflecto this way by going to the Liberry and searching from there.
