Looking for a better search app

I'm currently using "Live Search & Smart Search" and it's terrible.  I'm looking for something that will actually search my tags and help find products easier.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  Thanks in advance.

Hey, @KatScrappiness 


There's a great search app called Smart Search by Searchandise that I think will suit your needs. The app features instant suggestions, autocorrection, synonyms, redirects and stopwords along with. a comprehensive filtering option on the collection pages of your store as well. 

For example:  price, availability, vendor, product type, tags and reviews, collections, etc.


If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
