This publication describes methods and techniques for mobile devices to enhance the user experience associated with search applications. In aspects, an Intent Manager associates a query suggestion to a corresponding answer card (e.g., search result) for a given query text. The association may involve the Intent Manager identifying that the submission of a query suggestion results in a search application presenting one or more corresponding answer cards. Further, the association may include the production of metadata relating the query text to the submitted query suggestion. The Intent Manager can then cache the metadata on the device. In doing so, when a user performs an identical search at a later time, the Intent Manager can search through the cached metadata for a query text, find the query text, and extract the related query suggestion from the metadata. Using the related query suggestion as the search criteria, the search application can simultaneously present a query suggestion and its corresponding answer card(s) to a user during a search.
