    Anyone else not seeing the example text in Spotlight when you first swipe down and it's empty?

    This is what it shows me.

    as opposed to this (i know it's in Safari but when i did a clean install, that exact set of images and text showed up in Spotlight Search from the home screen)

    I think that the example text only shows up once or twice to give direction to the user. After that the it's not displayed. On both my iPhone and iPad it showed up after installing 8.0, but now it's not there anymore.

    From a usability perspective that's probably a good thing. At least in my case I saw the example text and thought that app icons were quick links. I ended up sitting there for a minute tapping on App Store wondering why it wasn't launching.
