How to search Cydia from Notification Center

There’s a new widget available that allows you to initiate a Cydia search via a Notification Center widget, and it’s appropriately titled Cydia-SearchNC.

This free download can be enabled via the Notifications panel in the Settings app, and doing so creates a handy search field directly in Notification Center.

Check out our video walkthrough that showcases how this jailbreak widget performs, after the break…


As you might have guessed, Cydia-SearchNC is a free download for jailbroken iOS users, and you can find it on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

It works just as advertised, though it would have been better if it was able to query Cydia without actually opening the app. Still, I think you’ll find it a solid addition to your Notification Center if you’ve been looking for something similar.
