You need to make a distinction between the first view of an app, and a view where there's just no data to display. When dealing with the first view scenario, that's a great opportunity to tell the user all those things you wish to tell him before he begins using your app. A welcome message, some tips and tricks (also provide a clear way of reaching them ...

Based on your answer in the comments, I would suggest the following: 1) Initial state: Box is enabled, button is enabled, optionally have a descriptive text in the search, like "enter search words", or "enter min. 3 characters". 2) User focuses in the text field: Whatever system generated text is in the textbox gets cleared, the button, if it is disabled ...

My favorite idea is to take users to the screen/dialog where they can subscribe to items. This can be done either automatically with a (modal) notification or by placing a big Subscribe to lists button in the empty screen of the subscription list. This way users stay engaged with the app. My second best idea is similar to Marjan's: have a visual indicator ...

Why not have the icon show as "full" when the user has subscriptions and "empty" when there are non yet? The difference between full/empty could be shown: analogous to the recycle bin empty piece of paper versus a piece of paper with some lines on it hollow circle versus filled out circle empty bird's nest versus nest with eggs in it lean versus fat ...
