Jailbreaking has been a part of the iOS community for a long time. Tweaks and winterboard are among common jailbreak terms that are extremely well known. The widgets of android phones have been the envy of iPhone lovers everywhere. Envy is gone thanks to tweaking and a new modification has come along to make life easier.
According to Redmond Pie, there is a new tweak, GoogleDaSH, that allows you to Google search right on your iOS homescreen. Android phone users have had this feature from the start and now Cupertino fans can start taking advantage of it as well.
Redmond Pie helps explain the ins and outs of the tweak on their site:
“After installation, GoogleDaSH doesn’t immediately append the home screen with any additional icons, nor does it come with its own preferences panel through the Settings application. The widget requires Dashboard X to be owned and installed and can be invoked by pressing and holding on the home screen until the icons are placed into wiggle mode. Tapping on an empty space on the screen then invokes the Dashboard X interface and allows the GoogleDaSH widget to be placed directly on the home screen for use.”
GoogleDaSH is available in Cydia on the BigBoss repository for free, so if you have a jailbroken device and are running iOS 5.0 and above, check it out and let us know how it works for you.
