Yes, by default, you do get a search that includes titles, but also all tracks with the search string in the album, or artist etc. I gave an example when I raised this topic of why such a search can be almost useless. Incidentally the search facility in V2 of Poweramp had exactly this problem, that is it searched album, artist etc as well as title. Fortunately in V2 there was a work-around; don't use search at all but go to the "all songs" list and apply a filter. Filters seem to have disappeared from V3. Just adding "titles" to the categories in "list options: search" is surely not that difficult.
"Search" -> "list options" does not include the category "titles". "All songs", which really ought to be labelled "all catagories", finds tracks where the search string appears in either the album name, the artist name or the track title and so gives many false positives. For example, searching for "william" can give far more tracks where the artist name contains "william" (or "williams") than tracks with the string actually in the title. Also the X on the far right of the search string entry box does not work.
New UI was OK when I last tried it in July 2018. Now, mid August 2018, new UI is not so good. Title, album & artist on top of album art (instead of at foot of screen) is untidy. Tempo, balance, etc adjustment discs are unnecessarily small (on 8" tablet)
