I just checked and it shows apps on mine. Maybe try resetting your phone.Screenshot_20190201-205855_Finder.jpg

Guys, it's me again.. I try everyday for change in Finder's search behavior and today IT SOMEHOW WORKED! I can't find the reason why. The only new thing today was the installation of all Bixby updates from Galaxy apps. (Bixby home, voice, service etc - 3 or 4 updates). Please try this solution and write back if it worked.

Not sure what you mean mate. I still can. Open the app drawer by swiping up and its there right on the top. See screenshot. If you don't see it I suggest resetting the phone and trying.Screenshot_20190201-200732_Samsung Experience Home.jpg

Thanks for your help, mine doesn't search in real time either, its waiting until I press enter before performing the search. Very odd.. thanks for your help.

I updated my note 8 to Pie yesterday, and I found same problem that finder can't search my installed apps, did you find the solution?

Apprentice

Yes I did find the solution, I had to factory reset the whole, device, it was inconvenient but it worked, good luck and don't forget to backup

I have the same problem after the update.

I am also facing the same issue after installing the Pie Update . Is there any alternative to factory reset solution. 

It's quite cumbersome to install all the apps back again after factory reset. 

Kindly suggest.
