Chances are, you use some of your iOS applications more than others and could benefit from having shortcuts to certain applications. That's why iOS developer DarkMalloc created a new jailbreak tweak for iOS 7 called Apptray
As shown above, Apptray adds a new tab to Notification Center labeled "Apptray" to the right of your missed notifications tab where you can place any applications that you want for easy access from just about anywhere.
You can place as many applications there as you want to; the developer made this feature unlimited. If you fill up the screen with application icons, you'll be able to scroll up or down vertically through Notification Center to look at all of your Apptray application icons. You can add shortcuts to App Store applications, Cydia applications, and even Apple's built-in applications.
Apptray adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure the tweak's settings:
The first option allows you to basically enable or disable Apptray on demand. The second option gives you the ability to have Apptray be the default tab that is always opened when you launch Notification Center. Under these two options, you'll find a slider where you can adjust the opacity of the application icons to your liking, and you'll find a cell for Applications, which you can tap on to enable and disable the application icons that you want to show in Apptray. Applications that are turned to the "on" position will appear in Apptray, while applications that are turned to the "off" position will not appear in Apptray.
Because Notification Center can be accessed from the Lock Screen, Home Screen, and even from within applications, this tweak gives you fast and easy access to any application from just about anywhere. If you attempt to open an application from Apptray from the Lock Screen and you have a passcode, you will be prompted to enter your passcode first, so there's no worry about security here.
We think Apptray is a beautifully streamlined way to add shortcuts to applications in iOS. If you want to give Apptray a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.49. The tweak requires iOS 7, but works on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
