Platinum Featured

One of my favorite features found in Google Chrome for iOS is the ability to build on search queries without initiating the search. Unfortunately, stock Mobile Safari doesn’t have this capability. That’s where Platinum, a new jailbreak tweak available on Cydia, comes in.

Platinum allows you to complete search queries on Mobile Safari with ease. There are no settings or options to configure, just install it and go. Take a glance inside for a look into how it works…


As you can see from the GIF animation above, Platinum places a blue arrow to the right of each search phrase. A tap of the arrow will place the selected phrase into the search box, and allow you to continuously build on the phrase.

Platinum is a free download on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. Share your thoughts in the comments below.

  • Good. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now.

      This should have been incorporated in Safari already by Apple. Each tweak goes by leaves me thinking why should I ever update to iOS 7 when Apple decides to release it. Each tweak released makes jailbreaking priceless 🙂

    Pretty resourceful tweak.

  • Oh thank god. This is the one feature I envied from Chrome. Now not that I want it that bad but if someone can make a fully functional unibar that would be perfect. So far the ones I’ve tried either are broken in landscape or don’t show bookmarks or search suggestions together.

    .. and that’s why we use Chrome.

    Uh yeah, this is superfrickin’ helpful. And it’s free? Definitely worth the shout out, Jeff.
