Easier app launching

As a user I would like to find and launch an app by searching on name to launch apps quickly

 

The request is actually two parts:

  1. Launch the top/most relevant search result in the app drawer search with the enter key
  2. Add a launcher action to the gestures that opens the app search

 

Launch the top/most relevant search result in the app drawer search with the enter key

The app search in the app drawer can be made more useful by adding app launching when pressing the enter key. Simply search for an app and press enter. This will open the first/most relevant result. This way the user doesn't have the press the app icon (this can be difficult on larger displays.

 

 

Add a launcher action to the gestures that opens the app search

Add a new launcher action to the gestures called "App search" that makes use of the newly improved app search. This action opens the app drawer, focuses on the search bar at the top and automatically opens the keyboard.
