I have a 1000 rows Google Spreadsheet in my Google Drive and using the Google Drive app on my Nexus tablet. I can't perform a search or use Ctrl+F option.

Any ideas or alternative ways to achieve this other than using Google Chrome browser which is poor to use on Tablets?

With the new Google Drive app (or the web based Google Drive) I'm perfectly capable of performing a search. On a Nexus 7 or 10, the Chrome browser in desktop modus is very well suited to do those tasks. – Jacob Jan Tuinstra May 23 '13 at 11:08

You can perform search from the main screen (the magnifying glass) and it will search in all your documents, but other than that you can search for a specific text from within the app. You will have to use the external browser.
