Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It's taken me months to figure out how to turn my frustration into a specific cohesive feature request. The problems lead to fundamental interface dead-ends, but are hopefully not ridiculously hard to solve.

Using the app is a very one-way process. Any time you need to back up, you lose your place. The sidebar and tab bar are only visible on the highest level, and to get back to them, your "progress" is forgotten.

This is most important in search.

Rather than bringing up a modal search window, allow access to the tab bar and sidebar inside a search.

sidebar access inside search

This was previously a larger question which was too broad. It has been fractured and scattered to the wind.

Previously part of this question:
Show realtime results while searching for tags in app
Switch to Questions tab on selection from Tags tab in app
Non-modal question dialog in app
Let me access the sidebar from asking in app
Restrict site specific views to specific tags (answer)
