Would you like to add a little more functionality to your iPhone’s Spotlight? SpotURL is a new jailbreak tweak, by Filippo Bigarella, that allows you to visit a website straight from the Spotlight page.

Instead of having to enter a web address in Mobile Safari, SpotURL will let you enter the address right on your iPhone’s homescreen. For quick navigation to a web page, SpotURL is about as good as it gets.

Simply swipe to the far left of your iPhone’s homescreen to access Spotlight search, and type a URL into the search field. The URL will be immediately opened in your browser. That’s pretty nifty.

SpotURL is part of TweekWeak, and can be downloaded for free in Cydia under Ryan Petrich’s repo: http://rpetri.ch/repo/
