    The main search bar at the top of every page on Android Forums is useful for quickly finding devices, apps, and games. However, when you're looking for an app or game that has a common name or for which there are lots of clones and knockoffs... which one is the correct forum?

    We've added the ability for users to search by package name!
    1. Go to the Google Play Store
    2. Copy the package name from the URL
      1. Ex URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapatalk.androidforumscom
      2. Package name: com.tapatalk.androidforumscom
    3. Enter the package name into the AF search bar
    4. VOILA!
    What if you enter the package name and can't find the result? That means we don't yet have a forum for that app. You can solve this problem in one of 2 ways:
    1. Download the AF App and click on the App Forum from there (this will create the forum)
    2. Make your post in the General Apps & Games Forum
    We're looking into the possibility of letting both staff and users create App and Game forums when they don't yet exist but for now this is a pretty good improvement. Big thanks to @Morgan for getting this done!

    Unforgiven ...eschew obfuscation...

    Wow, that's awesome. If we can translate the package name to a channel where they don't exist it will be even better.
