I've said it before and I will say it again: A search feature is a waste of resources, I'd prefer AK to work on the fluidity/stability of their firmware first.
If your music collection is well organized and properly tagged the current UI works very well, is simple to use, and provides similar functionality of an iPhone/iPod with respect to music inventory views and selection. All songs are 2-3 clicks away. Artist, Album, Track or Album, Track.
The search feature seems to be a requirement of those with sloppy music collections who are unable to utilize proper tagging as a means to have the software work as designed.
I would suggest having the ability to scroll by letter (A-Z), this will help navigating larger catalogs.
