When multiple pages of artists or albums result from a search (as indicated by the up/down arrows), the paging functionality could be improved.
For instance, when navigating back to search results, you lose your current page and must navigate to it again (especially in record label-based searches when one is often many pages deep). Keeping the previous page would be nice.
Or, changing the down arrow to adopt "load more" functionality, so that a scrollable list gets built as more results are returned.
Or, adding scrolling functionality to the artists and albums results so that new data could be automatically appended as the user scrolls.
Or, just load a lot more artists and albums to begin with. I don't imagine bandwidth being the issue here since the list is currently limited to 5 (i.e. interface issue).
