I can’t believe that I’m just now finding a tweak that lets you search Google from anywhere. There’s another tweak out there that does something similar, right?

If not, I’m shocked that it took this long to get a tweak like QuickGoogle on the Cydia store, but the good news is that it’s here, and it works marvelously.

QuickGoogle is a very simple tweak that uses an Activator action to pull up a Google search pop up notification box anytime and anywhere you please. Want to see how QuickGoogle performs in action? Then check inside for the full video walkthrough…

As you can see, this is about as straightforward as you can get. Simply install the tweak, go into Activator, and set up the Activator action of your choice.

I, of course, decided to roll with the “shake device” action, so I can aptly call this combination “shake to search.”

Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Shake to search.

I really like this tweak if you cannot tell, but it is unfortunate that the developer missed a prime opportunity to flesh it out by adding image search and news search as toggle options on the pop-up notification. Perhaps we’ll see a more fleshed out version in a future update.

Have you had the opportunity to try out QuickGoogle? If so, I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on the tweak.

Also, let me know if there’s another app or tweak available on Cydia that does something similar.
