That's about it! This app does one thing, and hopefully, you'll find that it does it well.
App Search is small, lightweight and not bogged down by features you'll never use.
★ PhoneArena: "A no-frills app that shows up and does the job."
★ HDblog.it: "..a convenient universal search application that closely resembles Spotlight search on iOS."
★ TechTudo: "Great performance - it feels like a part of Android itself."

Have lots of apps on your phone? Don't know where they are? Find and launch them with App Search.
Not all apps are created equal. Not all your apps deserve a spot on your homescreen. But that doesn't mean you should have to hunt for those apps in a pinch. Have access to every single one of your apps. App Search lets you launch anything you have installed.
Uninstalling an app? Long press to quickly open the Application Details page. No more hunting through the Apps page in Settings for that pesky app!
Enter key launches the first app in the list.
Find your apps, faster. On Android 4.1 and up, you can assign App Search to the Home assist shortcut! Long-press on Home, then swipe up.
When I designed App Search I held fast to the idea that your apps are your eventual destination, and App Search's design reflects that. Finding your apps is but the means to an end - and so you'll see that App Search doesn't take over your screen, presenting you with options that you'll never take. I aimed to design an app that was seamless; one that didn't interrupt you. I hope you like what you see.

I rate 8/8 while I enjoy hooking on some bait to my fishin line. But my friend, dear developer, there is a couple flaws in this majestic application. The ability to apply icon packs to this search engine, a grid option to show results in and having most used applications shown on top of the search without searching for quick access. Apart from that top notch effort mate, quality application.
App search works like a breeze. This can be made to launch on long press of home button. App window launches over existing app with the keyboard open by default. Search is quick. If you decide to quit, just press back button and search window will disappear - you can continue to work on your old app.
Fantastic app; simultaneously clean, simple, and functional. HOWEVER, one thing is missing which would push this app over the edge: an option to auto-launch the search result if there is only one! Please add this and I can die happy.
I wanted something that would let me search for an app, no frills. No searching through contacts too, no trying to learn my usage patterns, no favourite apps. Just launch it (with a gesture on Nova) and type to search. Love it.
I always love keyboard-based launchers. There's one thing that bothers me, though - it doesn't seem to update the list of apps automatically. I couldn't search for newly installed apps; they would only appear after I cleared the cache. ***UPDATE: Thanks for your tip, it works!
I have a penchant of having a clean homescreen (think one screen with 4 most used apps) and always had trouble indulging my OCD. It grew very apparent to me that there are indeed more than 4 useful apps out there so living with only 4 readily available apps on the homescreen is unwise! LOL! That is, until I found this app. I would be glad if I can even buy the developer a cup of coffee, or a bottle of beer, his choice really, if there is only a way...donation maybe. Awesome job!
App Search+ fulfils the function implied by its name (even the + is observed in simplicity & speed). Features for further improvement could include easier navigation (as app results are presented towards the top of the screen, making launching apps challenging, especially on larger phones that are becoming more common). Another useful feature that could expand on the app's function would be a widget to provide further functions (e.g. address the navigation issues).
On the Note 4 with Marshmallow go to Settings, Default applications, Device assistance app, select App Search Plus in stead of Google app. That way you can have this great app pop up by long pressing the physical home button (assuming that like me you don't use Google Now much)
Very useful app. However Marshmallow does not have swipe up function anymore, so if you want to keep using App Search you might want to go to Settings -> Applications -> Default Applications -> Device assistance app and set it to App Search+ instead of Google Now. I think this should be an option provided by the app after installation.
I searched for something like nova launcher's swipe search for TouchWiz and I found this. It would be better if you give it a nice premium material touch it looks kinda like cheap. And if it was just like a option like swipe up to get a small search bar not a window covering the screen. But anyways I liked it
Fast and quickly finds the app. Set it as you home swipe up and you are good to go. Do something that it doesnot listed in resent apps.
Impressive for its simplicity and handling. Really ergonomic, if I may. Very handy. Please add a dark theme. Add this as a shortcut on the status bar or the sides of the phones with something like all in one gestures and you can access it from anywhere. It's like switching tabs. 4.9*
I have been trying so many apps out there and this is the best one i have ever tried. The app is so simple, fast, beautiful meet and it have all I needs. Thanks team. Keeps up the good work!
Awesome app. Searches all apps very efficiently. All it takes is one click. In a single click, you are able to search all the installed apps. Very few steps are needed to search apps on the phone. Excellent.. I rate this 5 stars....
How about a dark theme too? Or maybe a blurry background? Would be beautiful.
Productivity at its best. Only one request : could you add contacts search (like iOS swipe down) with the app search? Then it will be the champion!!
Unbelievable that this is necessary in 2016. Buy a top of the range samsung tablet and i cant even search installed apps. What is this 1996? But this is a great app. Wouldnt mind a widget
I really like this app, but if you can add some color, that would be great. Or at least, it should has dark theme.
Please add support for other files, songs and contacts and also a nice widget. Also gesture support will be amazing.It'll be absolutely delightful then!
I have over 200 apps and this app helps me to search and launch app faster without having to scroll in the congested launcher app screen. Thanks. ;)
Some newly installed app arent registering to the search. My solution was to clear data and rerun the app.
How great would it be if it could be a widget! Sitting just below my Google search. Now that's worth 5 stars and 99p!
Nice app with a very clean interface. However there is another app search utility with more functionality. I wish I could combine the best of this one and the best of the other one.
Does the job. But some apps like lyft are not showing up in the list and couldn't find any contact details for help.
This app is perfect at doing what I want: searching for the app I want to launch and launching it. No ads, no bloat, just results.
Simple interface and does what it says. Also helpful if you are looking for that one app that you can't seem to find in your apps.
Works like a charm... Only thing missing is a dark theme
I've bought a premium launcher for this feature, however it can be activated from home screen only. Until I found this app, I can find app from any where.
Really great application, straight to.the point and really helpfull. Works really good on xiaomi redmi note 3 pro
Goodbye sidebar.. Hahaha ... Few suggestions.. Please give this app an ability to search music tracks and contacts as well. 1s waiting..
I wish it has themes and automatically search the Play Store for uninstalled key words. I'll get those as premiums :)
Keep up the good work. Really liked the disable animations option.
Open with swipe does not work.please fix
Excellent, but would look nice full-screen ...
Please add app store search redirect. See Nova Launcher app search function for example. Typed string should be forwarded to app store and a search should be executed when the app search icon is pressed. Premium feature, I'm willing to pay. Great app, but I really miss this function.
Can it search the contact also?
But it can be the best if you could please add some swipe up icons like Google now on tap look...
Just one request: if your search narrows to one result, there should be an option for that app to automatically launch.
Just what I really need.
Small and simple yet very effective. Please add an option to change the looks. Make a gaussian blur background.
