How often do you use the Spotlight search on your iPhone? If you’re like me, you never ever use it. Even worse, I get annoyed by it as I often end up on the Spotlight screen while browsing through apps. No more of this!

NoSpot is a new application available in Cydia that will get rid of Spotlight by hiding it from your screen. It’s easy, simple, and free!

NoSpot will not add any icon to your springboard. It will just hide the Spotlight search.

Try it and tell us what you think!

    I like spotlight since i got a 3gs couple days ago as its not slowing down my iphone as it does on 3g but i dont understand why this tweak is not out since 3.0…. I would have really like this tweak last week lol

  • Alvaro

  • TattoozNTech

    applied this, this weekend & love it!! i think i mite have used the spotlight search maybe a couple times since… forever….! love this!

  • Tim

    I didn’t really have a problem with the spotlight search before, but I found myself accidentally turning the extra page and wasting a second while it loads. This tweak will save me all those extra seconds that I lost before. Great!

  • Blapp

    never used spotlight and turned off indexing, this will come in handy =)

  • Z

    Finally! I’ve been waiting for this ever since I jailbroke my phone. Thanks, Sebastien, this is very useful.

    I know this is off topic, but does anyone know of other than CyFix solution for bad urls?

  • Andrew

    I like Spotlight search. Seems like an odd feature to get annoyed with. I’m not sure how you would accidently access it? Oh well, to each his own, it’s cool there’s an app to disable it if you like now.

  • Zarry

    After I removed this tweak on my iPhone 3Gs my screen resolution is one pixel to low or high and scales when I open and close apps. I’m running iOS 4.0.1.. Anybody having the same problem?

  • Angelica

    I like this option but what if yoy find that you need to search for something? Can you still access the spotlight search? I am new to iphone! Thanks Angelica

    • Scort

      Don’t worry Angelica, ..you won’t ever find that you need to search for something

  • zac

    doesnt work with 4.3.3

    • Vera

      Ehh… Sure it does? I have it.

  • Zac

    I wish it works with 4.3.3 I used pwnage and not working what source you using

  • I don’t get it either. I could see getting annoyed with it if it only searched your iPhone, but since it has the ability to search the web, too I don’t see what all the fuss is about. It is a bit annoying when I accidentally end up on it, but not enough to counter act it’s functionality, though I do wish I could disable activation from left swipe and have it accessible strictly from the home button. I could think of many things I’d rather have assigned to that Activator gesture. Does anyone know of a tweak that will do that?
