The awkwardly named SLightEnhancerSearch, is a recently released jailbreak tweak that adds a ton of new search options to the stock Spotlight search on iOS. The tweak was updated today, and the developer seems to have stamped out all of the bugs that plagued the initial release. SLightEnhancerSearch, as silly as its name may be, is a quality jailbreak tweak that many will no doubt find useful…
SLightEnhancerSearch can add new search options like Cydia, AppStore, iTunes, Google, Facebook, and more to your Spotlight search. You can pick and choose which search options you want to include via a preference panel in the Settings app. Once you’ve selected your desired options, tap Apply Changes to respring, and you’re good to go.
After installing SLightEnhancerSearch, head over to the Settings application and you’ll find a preferences pane where you can adjust its options:
SLightEnhancerSearch will give SpotLight the ability to search many different kinds of apps and search engines. Just to name a few of the popular ones, you can use the tweak to search any of the following:
-Perform a Cydia search for tweaks, themes, and apps
-Perform an App Store search for apps
-Perform an iTunes search for movies, music, TV shows, and more
-Perform an iBooks search for books
-Perform a Google search for a query
-Perform an Amazon search for shopping results
-Perform a YouTube search for videos
-Perform a Facebook or Twitter search for users
Turning any of the options off will hide them from SpotLight. Turning them on will show them in SpotLight. After you have configured what you want to show and hide, tap on the “Apply Changes” button and then use a respring method, such as SBSettings.
After you have resprung your iOS device, you can swipe over to SpotLight and start using SLightEnhancerSearch’s new features. For demonstration purposes, we will show you the Cydia and App Store search functions in action. You will be able to try the rest on your own:
When you tap on any of the search functions, the respective application will launch and complete a search query for you. For example, typing “Bad Piggies” in the search bar and tapping on the Search AppStore button will launch the App Store and load up search results for Bad Piggies.
