On the new interface, the Search bar only appearing while in the Search tab is absolutely awful.
Searching is, alongside browsing playlists, easily the most commonly used function in the application for me. Having to constantly click Search just to get a search bar is insane. The search bar doesn't even take up any space when in other menus! It's literally just getting removed, with nothing else occupying the same space! This is horrible from a functionality standpoint and brings absolutely nothing of value to the application.
