I've been a fan of Apple for years but lately I've started to see core issues in iOS 8 such as Spotlight that has me questioning both their resource and QA process - I will keep this one for another time.
My main gripe in iOS 8 is that spotlight (for me at least) seems very buggy and often even when I search for the complete app name nothing is shown. Another annoyance is I search and only Music is shown, no apps.
If like me you are experiencing the above or similar there is a fix.
- Hit the home button
- Hold down the home button and sleep/wake until the screen goes black and an Apple logo is displayed
- Let them go
Once it's restarted and you are back spotlight will be working again.
I've raised this as a bug on the Apple Developer Portal.
