I’ve been trying to search for Grail Games’ newest game, “King’s Road”, and also Can’t Stop express, but the search function isn’t working. Only by doing partial titles do I find them.

I found "King's Road" by simply typing in "Road".

It's because of the "´".
You must type "'"

I needed a long time until I learned that

Yes, I found it too the first time, but I shouldn’t have to scroll through all the other game titles with “road”, if I know the exact title

Search for "King Road" or even "kin roa" or "roa kin" instead.

The search function doesn't look an exact match. It looks for titles where each of the words you enter is the start of a word in the title.

As maho pointed out, you can type the full title if you use a normal ASCII apostrophe.

The kind of keyboard that isn’t available on an iPhone, I assume.
