How to recover missing apps on Galaxy S4 after update to 4.4.2?

After my wife’s Galaxy S4 was updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, at least a third of her apps are missing. Her phone is not rooted, Is there any way to recover these other than reinstalling them all individually from Play?

"One Sprint GS4 I had access to lost about half its apps, much to the chagrin of its owner. But fret not, with a little digging, we found a fix, and it's ridiculously easy.

Ready for it? Go ahead and hold down that Power button and select Reboot. Whew! That was tough!"

I'm not sure why the updated caused many S4 users to experience this issue with the update, but fixing it may be the easiest solution to a problem ever. Hold down your power button and reboot your S4. When it restarts the apps should "magically" reappear.
