Apostrophe breaks card search [Investigating]

1. Play on iOS
2. Go to "Cards"
3. Open "Filters"
4. Check "Show all cards" (i.e. don't restrict to cards I own)
5. In the text search box, type: vampire's
6. Apply

Result: The card Vampire's Zeal is not matched by this search.

Cause: iOS text entry defaults to using smart quotes, so when I try to type an apostrophe, I get U+2018 LEFT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK, while the card itself uses U+0027 APOSTROPHE.

Suggested fix: Disable smart quotes in the textbox, or use a looser text-matching algorithm that considers these two characters a match.

    @FiveHats Thank you for reporting this. I'll relay this to the team for review.

    I think the apostrophe also messes up the sort order if you order cards by name, but that is the smallest of issues.
