  • 'Priority Hub' Will Organize Your Lock Screen Notifications By App


    In the event that you are the type of person to end up with a lot of notifications on your iOS device, you might find it very handy to have them all neatly organized on a per-application basis so that you don't have a huge clutter of notifications on your Lock Screen.

    A new free Blackberry 10-inspired jailbreak tweak called Priority Hub by iOS developer Thomas Finch is now available in Cydia that will do this for you. As shown above, all of your notifications are neatly organized in tabs. Each tab represents an application, and each tab also shows a number representing how many notifications you have for that application.

    You can move from tab to tab simply by tapping on any of the tabs that you want to look at. As you would expect, you can still swipe to the right on any of your Lock Screen notifications to open the application that you have the notification in.

    Another feature of Priority Hub is that you can clear notifications for specific applications simply by pulling downwards on the list of notifications. For example, if you have multiple notifications, but you want to clear all of your Words With Friends notifications, you can just pull down on the Words With Friends notification list, and they'll disappear from the Lock Screen, but your Messages notifications and Twitter notifications will remain.

    Priority Hub adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a few simple options:



    From here, you can easily hide or show the notification counter on the tabs, and choose to have the application icons on the top or the bottom of the interface. It's also worth noting that Priority Hub is fully supported by third-party themes.

    At this point in time, Priority Hub is only compatible with iPhones and iPod touches, not iPads. It requires iOS 7 to be installed. If you would like to give it a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

      Not bad for a free tweak!

      The tweak crashed on an 5S with 7.0.6 if I try to slide a new push notification. The seperators works fine but if I try to unlock by a push notification it always crashed and bring me into the safe mode. How can I fix it? Maybe incompatible with another tweaks? Maybe IntelliScreenX?

      I don't like how it disappears after you unlock. What's the point in that? Should work more like the actual Notification Center that lets me dismiss stuff.

      Convergance did this earlier and, what's more, it allows to dismiss unneeded notifications.

      Yeah, I noticed it does the same on mine. It needs to be fixed or I'll have to remove it.

      That would be a nice feature.. maybe it can be added in a future update.

      This allows dismissing notifications too.

      I spoke to the developer.
      This tweak is NOT compatible with IntelliScreenX or LockHTML or GroovyLock. If you have any of those installed, Priority Hub notifications simply won't show on the Lockscreen.

      I have IntelliScreenX and it works with it as long as I don't have ISX shown on the lockscreen. I wonder if having them both installed is what causes my phone to respring into safe mode..

      That's the point, it isn't compatible with any functioning Lockscreen tweaks.

      Yeah but I don't care to have ISX on my lockscreen; I just like having it in my Notification Center so it would be good if they played nice together. It's not a big deal though.. I just removed Priority Hub for now and will keep an eye out for updates that fix the compatibility issues.

      This tweak kept throwing my phone into safe mode; I finally had to uninstall it. Has anyone else had trouble with that?

      Do you have IntelliscreenX? It kept putting mine into safe mode too but I assumed it had issues with ISX. I will keep an eye out for updates to it because I like this tweak otherwise.

      Same here. Springboard would crash about every 5 minutes or so, and CrashReporter always pointed to Priority Hub, so I eventually uninstalled it. Shame too because next to InfiniDock, this was one of my favorite jailbreak tweaks! I hope it gets fixed.
