  • Launch Notification Center Instead of SpotLight With 'NCLight'


    If youíre not big on using SpotLight (like most of us), then give this new free jailbreak tweak a try. Itís called NCLight by iOS developer Bradley Friedman (S1ReX). The tweak doesnít completely disable SpotLight, but it will open Notification Center when you swipe over to SpotLight.

    When you swipe to SpotLight, you will see the interface for a brief second and then Notification Center comes flying down the screen to the rescue. As soon as you close Notification Center, you will be right back at SpotLight, so it does feel a little odd, but the tweak does give you an alternative way of opening Notification Center. It would have been better if the tweak outright disabled SpotLight and simply launched Notification Center.



    You can enable and disable the tweak on demand from the preferences pane found in the Settings application. Upon installing the tweak, you will need to disable the tweak and then enable it again to get it work, so just head to the Settings application to do that (quick and easy, right?).

    Itís a simple modification that a few of you may find nice to have, but itís nothing to jump out of your chairs about. Give it a try; itís free!

    Name: NCLight
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 5
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Bradley Friedman (S1ReX)

      If they could make it where just notification center pops up this would be the best stoplight replacement

      SpotRemover is my favourite.

      This is a very good idea though!

      How you stay stuck on 6.0? No can downgrade da firmware?

      Oh yeah and on the topic... I like the idea of this tweak just outright replacing spot search... I have had it disabled altogether for so many years now... Great idea this tweak is though...

      I actually LOVE Spotlight. Makes it really easy for me to find apps quick. Notification Center is useless to me.

      You need to disable it and enable it from the preferences pane to get it to work. I had the same issue. What I have just told you to do fixed it for me.

      I am almost speechless that you didn't integrate Android into your comment this time.

      I guess I'm one of the few people that uses Spotlight. A lot! Usually it's for doing internet searches without waiting for Safari to load. Works good.

      already tried that still doesn't work. i think it's conflicting with one of my nc tweaks.

      Is there a tweak that allows you to scroll all the way right to your last springboard page then swipe again to loop you full circle back to the first springboard page? I know you can just press the home button to get back to the first page from any page, but it would be nice to scroll left from the first page and see the last page of apps instead of the spotlight page. In other words scroll either direction and have it continuously loop.
