    Please forgive me in advance if this has already been answered. I am frustrated searching for it.

    How the heck do you search in the app store inside Gear Manager? I see apps that reference searching yet there is no search function. To be honest, the functionality of the Gear App Store is awful.

    If you can help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    From within 'Gear Manager', open 'Samsung Gear Apps'.. When you do that, you should see a little looking glass on the very top right corner of the screen. Tap that and the search function should open.

    It's much like the way it works in 'Google Play Store'

    This is a very big design flaw with Samsung's Store... You can only search from the main screen: you have to be in the home screen in one of the "Best Picks", "Top", or "Category" tabs... Once you go into a category, you cannot search... It's VERY stupid, trust me!
    I don't even have those options. (Best Picks or Top) It is very basic and not very user friendly. I think that is very disappointing. Hopefully it will get better.

    In your first screenshot, if you tap "Samsung Gear Apps", what do you get? It should open into the App store with the search function up top.

    Right - - then tap inside the box next to the search glass to pull up the keyboard and type in the app (or reference terms) to search for. That's how it should work.

    Yeah I do not have that. Am I missing an update or is there another app to download?

    I don't know why you wouldn't get the search function in the gear app screen..

    One thing you might try... Tap on the blue bar between where it says 'select category' and the three vertical dots. You should get a side bar popping up from the left side of the screen. There you will be able to select 'Home'.. Try that.

    I guess I do not have the same Gear Manager/Store that you do. That sucks frankly. Below are the step by step from Gear Manager home page to going into the store. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Gear Manager...

    What if you tap the white arrow on the left of the "Select category" in the second screenshot? It takes you back to the orange Gear Manager screen?
    What's your phone model? Is it rooted?
    It does take me back to the GM screen. I have a Galaxy Note 3, not rooted on Verizon.

    So I figured out what was wrong. I needed to download the Samsung GALAXY Apps app. Once I did that the entire Gear Manager app store changed and represented what another user posted above.

    I really appreciate you all coming and offering your advice and suggestions. This community ROCKS!
