EFB: suggest an airport search facility is added

It what would be really good is there was a capability to filter charts for a given airport using the ICAO code.  It should be easy to write code to search the folders for any image files with that string in the name and only show image files that match the ICAO code chosen.  As it is you have to scroll through each chart, page by page, until you find the right set.  

I have only added a few airports to the EFB as it's quite time consuming to generate images from PDF files.  Even so I have a lot of images to page through to get to the set I want, and you have to repeat the process if you select a different type of chart.

Such a feature would make the EFB much more user friendly.

+1, and add to that an online databank, ala charts.aero but in JPG format, from which we can search and download charts in flight.
