    I've seen a couple of attempts to get a Google Search bar added as a widget to iOS at modmyi, but haven't heard or seen any successful attempts.

    Has anyone seen this done successfully? Would complete my home screen perfectly! A functional voice search would be outstanding but not critical.

    :D --> Whenever I see this in thread title, I think that someone has some solution for a problem mentioned in the title....

    People should learn to put thread title correctly with either question mark or solution etc...

    I know you put ? but that :D was deceiving!!

    Anyway, this is internet...enjoy!!

    Download smart screen from Cydia and you can have that widget on ur lock screen. I have it on my iPad. I bought smart screen but for the iPhone the lite version would be perfect because it only allows you to use 3 widgets. Can't fit more than that on the iPhone anyway. Hope that helps

    @jbarresi Thanks! Best option I have seen yet!

    Being the superficial person I am, I'd prefer to have one on the home page that looks and functions like the Google one above if it is out there. :cool:

    No problem....and the search bar from smartscreen is pretty cool because it's not just for google. You can search yahoo, twitter, wiki, and some other search engines/info sites.

    I actually really like the functionality... just not the appearance so much.
