    NoSpot seems to work well. However, you should try to bring up Spotlight via "Activator".....too bad that doesn't work.

    Yes, downloaded it earlier :) Never use spotlight, so it just got on the way!

    Been waiting for this.

    Only thing is, I just have one page and the page dot doesn't seem centered. It looks like it is slightly to the right from center.

    It's amazing that this little gem was eventually released! Kudos to Phoenix3200 and don't forget to show gratitude to him and consider buying other apps he developed; MusicControls, CalendarPro and ReSupported

    ...

    I agree ts mostly in the way but is there any way to still access it without it being part of the home screen? I don't use it much but sometimes it's nice for searching email when I can't remember what account an email is in

    A std Apple app that allows you to search your entire iPhone. When you are at your first screen of apps, hit the Home button once.

    You can already disable this.

    Settings - > General -> Spotlight Search.

    Uncheck all

    So the people that installed it did you notice any bugs or problems since or is everything good?

    Damn...just brings up the keyboard and no search box on mine. If that worked right, this would be absolutely perfect--Spotlight still accessible, but damn hard to access by accident.

    Still, I'll take no Spotlight over accidentally bringing it up 20x a day.

    Works fine. I've had no issues and I'm loving not having to swipe back from the spotlight page all the time. This is one of the handiest little tweaks I've seen in a long time.
