The Spotlight search feature is found on the iPhone, the iPad and the iPod Touch. This features lets users quickly search contacts, mail metadata, calendars, media and other installed applications. This feature has been available on the Mac since 2005. The feature on the iOS version does not offer all of the functions that you will find on the desktop, but it still works as a functional search feature.
As developers are known to do, there was one that decided to increase the functions that Spotlight could offer to users by developing a new tweak which connects directly with Spotlight.
