Full parity of search feature between web site and app

Honestly, I cannot believe this even has to be a request or recommendation. I would personally consider this a bug, but apparently CF does not.

Expectation: Search bar functions identically between the CF web site and the CF app.

Reality: It does not.

When reporting this issue to support, the response that I got to the specific situation I reported was that search within the app does not have relevancy sorting (which, let's be honest, what is the point then?), but the problem feels more significant than that, especially based on browsing the ideas pages.

It is very clear that the two searches are completely separate for reasons only known to CF and its developers. In a typical scenario, the app would simply be a frontend utilizing the exact same APIs that the web property is using. The fact that it is not doing so is ... bad.
