For those Reddit users out there that are looking to add push notifications to their iOS 7 devices, there's a new jailbreak tweak in town called Orangered for iOS 7 by iOS developers Julian Weiss and Phillip Tennen that you'll want to try out.
Orangered for iOS 7 integrates with Activator so that you can check for any missed notifications at any time that you want to, although it can also check based on a time interval. You will assign the tweak an Activator action, and when you invoke that action, the tweak will show you any missed notifications that you may have.
Orangered for iOS 7 also supports a large number of clients, but if you don't use any of them, then it will default to using Mobile Safari – the list of supported clients include:
- Alien Blue
- Alien Blue HD
- OJ Free
- Karma Train
From the tweak's preferences pane, which is shown above, you can configure a variety of options, such as:
- Enable or disable the tweak on demand
- Choose the client that you want to use for Reddit
- Configure the Activator action you want to use for checking for notifications
- Sign into your Reddit account
- Enable or disable an option that notifies you when the tweak checks for notifications even when there were no notifications
- Enable or disable having your messages marked as read when Orangered notifies you of them
- Configure your own refresh interval
- Choose your own notification sound
After configuring the tweak to your liking, you will need to apply your changes using the Apply button at the bottom of the preferences pane. This is required to save all the changes you made to the settings.
If you're a Reddit user and using any kind of iOS 7 device, whether it's an iPhone, iPod touch, or an iPad, then you should definitely consider checking out Orangered for iOS 7. If you're using any kind of client that isn't supported by Orangered for iOS 7 out of the box, then the developers are ready to start adding support for new clients if you take a moment to e-mail them about what you're using.
If you would like to give Orangered for iOS 7 a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for 99¢.
