    That's pretty much my deal too. Since it is not visible on the home screens, I tend to forget that it is there. I'm sure it would probably be really helpful if I could just remember to use it.

    I forget it too. But I'm old. You don't have an excuse.

    I use it quite a bit! Mainly to open apps if I don't want to use Siri to do it for me. (In public due to noise)

    I rarely use spotlight. If it automatically showed web searches, I would use it more frequently.

    I use it all the time!! I have way too many apps & too much music to have to look for stuff. On occasion, I'll also use it for web searches & to search the App Store.

    It's just as productive on a Mac, incredibly intuitive and easier to activate than on an iPhone or iPad. Just tap CMD+Spacebar, and the Spotlight Search window opens with the cursor positioned. Your hands never leave the keyboard.

    Only time I use it is on accident when I pull the screen wrong.

    Completely understand what you're saying. I swipe three screens, tap the sub folder, open the app, and then realize I could have used spotlight.

    Sorry, but I recently changed my avatar. It is the same photo but I changed it using PencilSketch, an app I recently discovered.

    does anybody actually use the spotlight search feature ? I can't see why you would, maybe I'm missing something.....
    All day everyday because I have everything in folders. Some of my lesser used apps I don't even know where they are lol
