Using Spotlight Search in iOS 8

The basic search function in iOS has been expanded in iOS 8 to include useful suggestions. You'll see Wikipedia entries, movie times, map locations and items in the App and iTunes Stores. You can also adjust what you see in a Spotlight Search in the Settings app, removing items and setting their order.

    Another useful category for Spotlight Search in iOS 8 would be folder names. If users have a lot of apps in a certain category, they often group them into a folder (e.g., Weather or News). In the Mac OS X implementation of Spotlight Search, we already do get folders as one of the return types, so it would be great to have a similar capability on iOS.
