  • Cicero to Serve Up Customizable Search Bars for iPhone


    Get ready for a sweet new app. @phoenixdev, a personal favorite iPhone jailbreak developer, is prepping for launch a new application that will serve up customizable search bars for the iPhone.

    As illustrated by the provided screen shots, users can run the table like never before with their search bar preferences. The app in question is called Cicero and will be available shortly from phoenixdev (AKA Paul Griffin) for only $2.49. Needless to say, the possibilities that result from this little gem are, indeed, particularly exciting (as evidenced by the below sneak peak imagery below).

    Fortunately, the dawn of iPhone search customization should become more prevalent over time. In time - as there is presently no confirmed time table - westbaer (Nicolas Haunold of Chronic Dev Team fame) will be coming out with a compatible app that will let you search using custom search engines from Spotlight. For now, though, the "spotlight" is shining bright on Cicero, which stands to be a hot commodity this weekend upon its release. Look for it later this morning as phoenixdev says it will be ready by the time the US wakes up. Of course, knowing this is coming... who can sleep?

      Only way this would be in the app store is if it were a whole new browser and not just a plugin for safari

      All you got to do is touch the little icon on the search engine space then choose your preference.

      Google
      Wikipedia
      Mycroft Project
      Bing
      YouTube
      IMDb
      Point is why would you pay for something just to use google when we already have it as are search bar.
      And really why doesn't it work with 3.1.2?

      A lot changed in Safari between 3.1 and 3.2. I'm lucky that I can support 3.2 and 4.0 at the same time.

      While this may be useful on a desktop/laptop browser, possibly even the iPad, this is mostly useless on an iPhone. Google is what most of us use most of the time. Navigate to the website you want to search do it that way. I was under the impression Phoenix3200 was coming out with a whole solution, a full webkit browser. This is just a tweak to the current Safari browser. I, for one, am not very impressed.

      What do you mean? Installing stuff in safari? That's new to me.. Do you mean downloading?
