Spotlight is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated features of iOS. I know so many people who don’t use it, yet I find it indispensable when it comes to searching for emails, notes, contacts, and apps I’ve hidden in a folder somewhere. And with SLightEnhancerSearch, a new tweak for jailbroken iOS devices, it’s even better.
SLightEnhancerSearch enhances Spotlight by introducing the ability to search YouTube, Twitter, Amazon, the App Store, and lots more — right from your home screen.
Once installed, you’ll be able to customize SLightEnhancerSearch from within the Settings app; you can specify exactly which sources you’d like to search within Spotlight. Some of the best options include:
- App Store
- Cydia Store
Enable any of these, and you’ll be able to search them using Spotlight — as opposed to opening up their individual apps and searching from there. It’s much quicker, and much simpler. Our friends over at AppAdvice have put together this little video to show SLightEnhancerSearch in action:
You can download SLightEnhancerSearch now from the BigBoss repository within Cydia, and it’s completely free.
