    • searching in contacts isn't deep. the launcher doesn't see other fields like address, notes, etc

      my every contacts has its own description like a company, a job, an address and different notes. but the search can see only texts in fields "first name/last name"

        • Searching an app just got much longer

          I often use the search tool to launch one of my apps. Since recent updates, the loading time when typing a search term got very longer. I have to wait the web search results to appear to find the app I'm looking for. Shouldn't they be two separate requests?

            • searching for app no longer returning that app

              Typing the first letter of my banking app used to display it. now it doesn't and the second letter switches to web search so I can't get to that app the same way any more.

              • Search is very slow and does not pick up apps containing the searched texted. i.e. Searching for "Mail" did not bring up "email" app.

                Search runs extreamly slow and does not give all the expected results. I searched for "Mail" but the results did not bring up the app "email"

                • Search suggestions are too slow and will pop over the app I'm trying to launch making me accidentally search the web

                  When using the search function to quickly launch an app I don't have on my home screen sometimes the suggestions are too slow and pop under my finger when trying to launch an app. A max suggestions count could fix this issue, or moving them under the apps installed

                            Suggested app section after I touch the search bar is showing apps that I've uninstalled. It also doesn't rearrange the apps based on the usage.

                                  Search Suggestions: Awkward Delay
                                  I search for an app by its first letter and the icon shows up and EXACTLY before I tap the icon, the suggestions come down and I've tapped a suggestion😠 So now I have to go back, bring up the search box, search again, resist the urge to tap the icon and wait a second, suggestions come down n then tap the icon 😩

                                  Either plz increase the delay or allocate a FIXED space for the suggestions so app results stay where they were!
                                  it wastes a lot of time daily and exactly when i need…

                                    • Search bar not working.

                                      The search bar doesn't display results from contacts, files, messages, etc. This happened after the update. It only displays web results of the queries.
