Bug Description

The heated discussions regarding the online search capabilities in the Dash have led to the possibility to disable that in through systemsettings which many people use.

On Touch, this introduces the problem that a user cannot browse/install any new apps any more. I think there is the need to have a dedicated application for the app store which allows to find and install new apps without having to enable full Dash online search capabilities.

-----------------------------------------
Desired resolution:

- In the new Unity8 Dash architecture, there is no longer a global search, users choose which lens they would like to search before performing a search. This means the issue privacy issue from Unity7 is no longer present, therefore this setting can be removed from System Settings.

This is not the case in the new scopes API. Now, we are in the opposite situation, c.f. bug #1302801
