How to replace Spotlight search with a web interface

I’m absolutely sure that I’m in the minority on my thoughts about iOS’ Spotlight feature. I actually find it useful and helpful for launching apps, finding emails, contacts, etc.

Many of you, however, loathe Apple’s inclusion of Spotlight; deeming it absolutely worthless, useless, and a waste of time and energy.

For those who fall into the latter category, then maybe this jailbreak tweak will make you happy. It’s called WebSpot, and it allows you to completely replace Spotlight with a customizable web interface…


WebSpot has been updated since our video footage was taken. Since then, more options have been added to the fray: such as the ability to navigate to URLs directly from WebSpot, along with the inclusion of a new toolbar.

For those of you who outright refuse to acknowledge the existence of Spotlight, then WebSpot is certainly for you. Not only does it remove Spotlight, but it replaces it with something “useful”.
