    Question Universal Search - why?

    I've just read another OS6 article that loves the Universal Search functionality. Can someone please explain why this is useful? I mean, do I really want all songs on my phone with the name Donna in them to come up with I'm looking for my friend Donna's phone number? I mean, I probably know what type of thing I'm looking for before I go searching, and when I do, I'd only want to see things matching that type. I don't see the benefit.

    You can turn on/off which apps will appear in universal search ... so depending on your exact needs, it could be a fantastic tool.

    I'm actually finding myself using it a lot lately because I don't know my way around OS6 yet, so it's not to bad
