Spotlight Search Food Logging via iOS 9

Spotlight Search For MFP Foods Right From Your Home Screen on your iPhone with iOS 9

iOS9 now gives us the ability to do some impressive stuff with Spotlight search. 
You can now search directly from Spotlight for food, and if it's food you've already logged, or viewed details of, it will appear right there in the results. 
It's one of those, gotta-experience-it-to-get-it-features, but trust us, it's awesome.
For example, let's say you've already logged Dried Mango & Tamarind.

Previously, you have eight steps to log this item. Open the app > tap + > tap Food > select a meal > tap into the search bar > search for 'Mango > select food.

Now with Spotlight, from any Home screen page of your iPhone or iPad, touch your finger to the screen and drag down to reveal the Spotlight search field. Type what food you're looking for and hit Search. A single tap will take you directly to the food details screen where you can add your food to a meal and log it. 

For the millions of users who log similar foods every day, this is going to be a game-changer.
