I would like to add my cent to the feature list.

There is a 'search icon' provided in the app list screen.

Today i got update my lumia 800 to 7.8 from nokia care and as much i used it i can tell there is a new feel everytime i unlock my screen... But there are lags and stutter in home screen while scrolling.. Not only this but some apps crashed itself during usage which were working perfectly before... I will give my feedback to ms regarding this...
