    Default 'SpotBingSearch' Makes it Faster to Search Bing or YouTube With SpotLight in iOS


    Rather than simply entering text in SpotLight and hoping that the first few Bing results are exactly what you were looking for, or having to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the search results to tap on the Web search button, a new free jailbreak tweak called SpotBingSearch by iOS developer iKilledAppl3 will make it easier and faster to search the Web, and even YouTube, right from SpotLight.

    With this tweak installed, you can instantly view Bing Web and YouTube searches as soon as you tap on the "Search" button by putting a lowercase "b" or "y" before your query, as shown below:




    This tweak makes it more than twice as fast to get to what you're looking for, whether you want Bing search results or YouTube search results. Searches open in Mobile Safari as soon as you tap on the blue "search" button on the iOS keyboard while in the SpotLight interface.

    There are no options to configure. If you want to give SpotBingSearch a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1.2
