    Today, Spotlight Search decided to stop working on me. Now, apps don't show up on Spotlight Search anymore. I've tried everything. Rebooting, resetting all of my settings, and even forcing a shutdown as well. All of those options don't work. Instead, it's just nothing but web searches and app store results.

    You're only allowed to search for so many apps. After that, you need to reset spotlight after a cooling off period of 48 hours.

    What I did was remove a whole bunch of apps that I never used anymore.
