  • 'Tap to Note' and 'Tap to Remind' Add Two Useful Widgets to Notification Center


    If you were a fan of the new share widgets in iOS 6, then you’ll probably like these two new widgets that follow the same design principles. Tap to Note and Tap to Remind are both now available in the Cydia store for 99˘ each by iOS developer Alan Yip.

    As their names suggest, one of the widgets will allow you to compose Notes right from Notification Center via the widget. The other widget will allow you to compose Reminders right from Notification Center via the widget. You'll also notice from the screenshot above that they are designed to work together, and will appear side-by-side just like Apple's Facebook and Twitter share widgets do.

    When you tap on either of the widgets, you’ll get a share sheet styled to look like the application that it’s intended for. The Tap to Note widget share sheet has all of the aesthetic details of the Notes application. Whatever you have typed into the Notes share sheet when you tap on the Add button will be saved to your Notes application. The Tap to Remind widget share sheet has all of the aesthetic details of the Reminders application. Whatever you have typed into the Reminders share sheet when you tap on the Add button will be saved to your Reminders application, and you can choose a time for the alert:



    Both of the tweaks come with preference panes, which can be used to enable or disable the iOS 6 share widget-style side-by-side appearance, and the ability to enable or disable the auto-closing of Notification Center after you add a note or a reminder:



    If at any time you want to enable or disable the widgets, you can simply drag them in and out of Notification Center at any time:



    The Tap to Note and Tap to Remind widgets are not yet iPad-compatible and only work on iOS 6. The tweaks will conflict with BlurriedNCBackground, so if you use that tweak, you’ll need to uninstall it to use these widgets. The developer hopes to fix this conflict soon.

    Overall, we like the aesthetics, functionality, and implementation of these widgets. They’re available in the BigBoss repository right now, so if you want them, be sure to grab them!

      This is interesting and looks good but although I applaud the developer for putting it together, unless you've actually got the NC active or your Cal app (stock or otherwise) isn't on your home screen, it doesn't represent a huge leap in terms of efficiency:

      Current: Home screen > Open Cal > Add new event
      With Tweak: Home Screen > Swipe for NV > Tap to Cal & no icloud sync without opening cal or reminder

      So basically, if you need to sync across devices, it represents one further step, i.e. less efficient.
