If you don't use Spotlight search in iOS, considering it not entirely useful, then take a look at a bunch of SearchCollapse and SearchAmplius tweaks from Cydia.
These two extensions allow you to teach the search engine not to be limited to the data on the iDevice, but to carry out queries on the Internet. In addition, unlike most analogue tweaks, these additions clearly structure the found material.
The main extension from this bundle is SearchAmplius. Thanks to it, eight additional items will appear in the spotlight search settings. They can be activated either all or separately. In addition, you can swap the displayed queries and combine them with existing ones.
Now search will be able to find data on the Internet, Wikipedia, on youtube, in maps, promotions, iTunes, App Store and Cydia. In addition, any mathematical expression written in the search string can be calculated using a calculator. By clicking on the desired option, the link will open in the corresponding application.
In the tweak settings, you can select the number of results found for each type of search.
The second addon SearchCollapse is optional for the first to work. It is responsible for collapsing search results. When activated, regardless of the SearchAmplius settings, the results obtained will be grouped one line for each of the search options. After clicking on the required type of application, the window will expand and display everything found in this category.
Both extensions can be downloaded for free from Cydia.
