When doing a textual search in LR Mobile, the search is performed in the last open album instead of in the current view.

Furthermore, the search function seems to be only effective on metadata, and NOT on album, folder or collection name. This is either a huge bug either nonsense, as people tend to sort their pictures in albums.

I am not able to duplicate this.  Can you give more detailed step-by-step instructions?

Sorry, I was unable to reproduce it either, but I might have restarted the app. Basically, here is what happened:

You're une one albume (Album A)
Go into another album (Album B)
Perform a search (text) --> instead of searching in Album B, in searched in Album A.

...but searching for 'Album A' still fails to retrieve the Album A. The album (or collection, depends on the version of LR) is frequently the main sorting criterium.
