Tweak #09 - WeeSearch for Notification Center

Hello there, happy friday! Almost Christmas, and we're back with another little tweak that is useful. It's called WeeSearch for Notification Center. Once installed, you'll need to go into your Settings app, and instead scrolling down looking for it, you will need to enable it in your Notification Center. Tap on notifications:

Then see if it's enabled, if not scroll down, tap on it and toggle it on to show in Notification Center. There's no more option in there.

Once you exit out of Settings, pull down Notification Center. You'll see a little search box like this:

I like it because it lets you search google, youtube, wikipedia and dictionary. Very handy when you need something really fast and don't feel like waiting for the browser to open up.

If you cancel out of typing, and swipe WeeSearch to the right or left, you'll be presented with a little info view. Creator's name, with a little note saying you can donate, and a settings icon.

All the settings icon does is prompt you if you'd like to toggle the slim version of WeeSearch:

If yes, it'll be minimized down and limit only to google search like so:

WeSearch can be found under the BigBoss repo for free, created by Jonas Gessner (Maxner). There is also a WeeSearch Pro addon (extension) in the BigBoss repo for $1.49 that you can purchase. You get to choose your own websites for search, add some custom ones, change language, etc. So a little more features than the free version.

There's a nice detailed explanation in Cydia, as well as images for anyone interested.

You can follow me on Google+ and Twitter, feel free to donate a few cents that would go towards new tweaks. As well as follow and support pod2g who is working on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. I have a few smaller tweaks, perhaps will write out 2 or 3 of them tomorrow since they are very simple. Enjoy your friday everyone!
