SpotBright is an application that was created to enhance the Spotlight search feature on firmware 3.0. The app allows hidden apps to be launched and “keeps a list of recently launched applications, so you can use them at a moment’s notice.”
When I tested this app, the ability to launch hidden applications worked great. My hidden applications showed up in my Spotlight search and I was able to tap on them and they launched.
The other feature of SpotBright is that it displays little icons of the six most recently launched applications on the Spotlight search page of your SpringBoard (see screenshot below). This allows you to quickly launch applications that you have just used.
Note: If one of your recently launched applications is SBSettings, it will display as a plain white icon.
The Spotlight application is basically a replacement for QuickGold on firmware 3.0. According to BigBoss SpotBright will gradually be updated to include features that QuickGold has. If you are on firmware 2.x, you will still want to use QuickGold and not SpotBright.
You can get SpotBright via the BigBoss source.
