Use iOS Spotlight to Search Spotify Tracks

Heavy Spotify users will enjoy a new jailbreak tweak appropriately named SpotiSearch. With this mod installed on the iPhone, looking for Spotify tracks is as simple as entering a search term in the default iOS 7 Spotlight search.

SpotiSearch tweak

A swipe from top to bottom on the home screen reveals the Spotlight search field. Integrating Spotify results is achieved by installing SpotiSearch from Cydia and configuring a few options in the settings.

Besides region information, settings include actions to be taken when a Spotify search result is selected. Options include playing a radio station, or playing individual tracks for premium Spotify subscribers. Spotify search results can also be limited so that only a specific number of artists, albums or tracks are listed in the Spotlight search results.

Search categories can also be rearranged to change their priority. Music lovers can elect to move Spotify search results to the top of the list, above default iOS categories such as Contacts or Apps.

SpotiSearch is available from Cydia on the BigBoss repository for $0.99. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 7.x with evasi0n 7. You can also find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
