Spotlight is coming to the iPhone. That sounds great on the surface, but I don’t think it’ll be quite as awesome for me as Apple are making out. I find search to be useful in OS X when I know exactly which app I want to load, but particularly on my iPhone that’s very rarely the case.

Maybe I just have too many toys / games to choose from but when I want to waste time with my phone I never have a specific app in mind; I spend 30 seconds browsing through the pages for something that I feel like playing. That breaks down with more than 2 pages but search won’t help at all.

 
Who knows, maybe I’ll just stop wasting so much time on my phone, and spotlight will become useful because I’ll know what I want to load every time.

But I doubt it 😉
