For simplest search, type in the string you are looking for. If an exact match is needed then place search string within quotation marks. For photos which have metadata info embedded, you can simply search by location. For e.g. searching for "Paris" will search for all photos which were taken in Paris as well as documents which contain the words Paris embedded in them.

No, you don’t need to wait for indexing to complete before searching. However, it is recommended to allow QuikFynd to complete the indexing to make sure all files in your device are indexed properly and that you will not miss a file when searching for it.
QuikFynd performs indexing in two phases. First is a quick pass through your files, so that you can find your files by their name, size and other meta data information. Second is a deeper analysis for Full Text Search.
For you to be able to search your files based on keywords within file content, indexing must be completed.
Indexing status is displayed on the main page of QuikFynd Web and Mobile applications. Here is a screenshot of where you can find this information.
The time it takes for QuikFynd to index data on your device depend on how much data you have stored on it. If there is a huge amount of data, it might take longer to index compared to when there is just minimal. Indexing performance also depends on the capability of the device being indexed (e.g. CPU type and amount of RAM available on your system).
