  • 'StatusPeek' Replaces the Full Screen App Notification Grabber With a Status Bar


    Whenever you pull down from the top of the display of a full-screen application, iOS displays a grabber that you can pull down on in order to reveal Notification Center. Unfortunately, the Grabber isn't very useful, and it's quite a waste of time to look at.

    A new jailbreak tweak called StatusPeek by iOS developer Noeliel is now available to make it so that when you pull down from the top of the display in a full-screen application, the Status Bar shows instead of just a grabber, as shown above.

    It is worth mentioning that the Status Bar disappears after the same amount of time that the Notification Center grabber would, and you can pull down on the Status Bar to open Notification Center just like you could if you pulled down on the Notification Center grabber. The real benefit here is that you don't have to open Notification Center to see the valuable information that the Status Bar shows you.

    StatusPeek adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a number of the tweak's available options:



    You will be able to enable or disable the tweak on demand, enable or disable rounded corners, configure the style of the Status Bar, and choose whether or not you want the Status Bar to appear at the bottom of Notification Center. The Status Bar styles you have to choose from include: Light Blur, Dark Blur, and Solid Black. A respring button is added to the top right of the preferences pane that you can use to save your options as you change them.

    StatusPeek works on all iOS 7 devices including the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. If you'd like to give it a try, you can download it right now from Cydia's BigBoss repository for just 99.

      This is one of the best jailbreak tweaks ever created. It's the only one I wish I had now. I don't know why it took so long for an iOS 7 version.

      Got this for my full screen COUCH TO 5k exercise app. Now while in the app I can pull down what time it is. Very helpful.
