Add search items to iOS spotlight indexing system
Based on your application content or even based on user generated content, you can safely create new search attributes and add them to the iOS spotlight indexing system. Spotlight will take care of the rest for you and users will enjoy your app more when they see they can easily have access to the content of your app right from the spotlight search page.
Group the search items for easier managing them
When adding search items to the Spotlight indexing system, you have the option to set the content type, a unique identifier string and a group domain identifier string. This way, you can manage your search items easily and depending on what settings you may have used, your app content will be shown differently on the spotlight search page.
Delete all items or specific groups
Spotlight indexing happens in runtime and this means that the items you have indexed yesterday, might not be valid in your app today based on how your app works. So, in these scenarios, you need to delete the invalid search results from the spotlight. The Spotlight Air Native Extension lets you do that with grace. You have the option to delete items by their group identifier or by their unique identifier string or simply deleting all the indexes if necessary.
Listeners to be invoked as soon as your app opens from Spotlight search results
What happens when users touch your search item in the spotlight page? of course your app opens but the fun fact is that as soon as your app launches, the Spotlight ANE will dispatch a listener so you will know that the app has been launched because of the user selecting an item in the spotlight page. When you know this, you can easily take the user to an appropriate page in your app where its content is relevant to the data shown in the search item in the spotlight.
