Tree Search on iPad Doesn't Work

On my iPad the search for Others' Trees doesn't work. When I'm trying to find a contact's tree, the soft-keyboard pops up, but I can't enter anything. Also, why can't you make the display of others' trees fit the field - it's really annoying to have to scroll to see 2 more names, when there is plenty of real estate on the screen. Better still, make it ONE scrollable drop down, just as it was and far better! This just isn't an improvement over earlier versions. I have 11 pages of contacts trees so this is really an issue.
