Small Change to Search in 8.1

I'm so close to liking the search in 8.1, but it feels like the loss of in-app search made it far less functional. I noticed that the search panel is blank when you first open it, so why not put a list of searchable applications back in?

Thoughts? Feedback? I threw this together in Photoshop in about 15 minutes, so I realize it isn't that clean.
