  • '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!

      Doesn't work for me in LockInfo5. The widget is showing but it's not doing anything.

      These tweaks look really good for people without Siri.

      The dev is working on Lockscreen mode, hopefully it comes soon. I was hoping to use this with Bulletin to quickly add a reminder from the lockscreen.

      Hope the dev is working on not sending devices into safe mode.

      It would seem they may not be compatible with LockInfo 5 yet because a lot of people are now reporting crashes with the two installed.

      I can't confirm it though.

      Works very well and looks stock. Doesn't play so nice with bulletin though (keyboard doesn't show up). But neither does the stock share widgets. Great tweak!

      Sorry for causing so many crashes. Next update will support LockInfo, ISX and Bulletin, and include localization as well

      Uninstalled LockInfo, then install these 2 tweaks, and re-install LockInfo to fix the crash problem. works for me
