Disable Annoying Launch Alert Popups With 'NoLaunchAlert'
If you’re annoyed by those pesky launch alerts that appear in certain applications, such as the “You must disable Airplane Mode to send or receive messages” popup that appears in the Messages application whenever Airplane Mode is turned on, then it’s time to take a look at a new free jailbreak tweak called NoLaunchAlert
by iOS developer mkn0dat.
The tweak gets rid of these messages for you because they’re either annoying for some users, or blatantly obvious. For example, it might be annoying to get the Airplane Mode alert in the Messages application, because it’s not necessarily true that you can’t send or receive messages in the Messages application when Airplane Mode is enabled – You can still send iMessages over Wi-Fi when Wi-Fi is turned on and Airplane Mode is turned on at the same time. In this case, the popup just becomes annoying and irrelevant.
For those that have iPhones that are no longer being provided cellular service, it’s a popular act to turn on Airplane Mode and then enable Wi-Fi, which helps save battery because the iPhone won’t be looking for cellular networks, and at the same time, the user gets rid of the tacky “No Service” indicator at the top left of the Status Bar.
NoLaunchAlert works in any application that has launch alerts – not just the Messages application. You can configure the applications that you want to disable the launch alerts in by using the NoLaunchAlert preferences pane in the Settings application. Turning on any of the applications in the tweak's settings will disable launch alerts for those applications, while leaving them turned off will allow the showing of launch alerts in the applications.
If you're interested in grabbing this tweak, as niche as it may be, it's available for free right now in the BigBoss repository of Cydia.
