The Cydia Tweak Lepidopterist has been officially released and works with devices that have iOS 9 or higher. Lepidopterist is a new cydia tweak lets you directly search cydia from Spotlight. Without the tweak, users have to wait for Cydia to launch and populate itself before you can do any meaningful search. The wait and the process is just annoying. Thanks to this tweak, you can now enjoy searching Cydia for your other favorite tweaks.
After installing the Lepidopterist tweak you will be able to search the Cydia store right from Spotlight app. This includes the Spotlight search that you can access from the left most page or by pulling down on the homescreen. Cydia Spotlight search works just like any other search in which you have to type the name of the tweak in the search field. Spotlight will then show you the search results right within its interface. To access a tweak’s description and download page you can simply tap on the Cydia result.
If you’re in to give this tweak a try, Lepidopterist jailbreak tweak is available for free from BigBoss repo. Simply install the tweak on your device and configure it the way you want to use it from the preference pane which you can access from Settings app and then you are ready to make the best use of it. To install this program requires a jailbroken device (see if and how you can do the jailbreak to your iPhone by clicking here) and you need an Internet connection to download the package.
