  • MobileNotifier Beta4 And Extras With Peter Hajas - Video Interview


    Undoubtedly a prevalent area of any iDevice that is commonly tweaked by developers is the notification system and alerts. Many have taken a stab at it and have released some good additions. One in particular, MobileNotifier, has made the news countless times due to it's elegant look and user-intuitive style. With the "iOS Notifications. Done right" mentality, it has risen the ranks to become one of the best notification system tweaks out there. Created by Peter Hajas, it is entirely open source and is free to download and use. MobileNotifier is currently on version beta3 and is expecting some major additions in the coming future. Although many of the additions are posted on Peter Hajas's website, it is unknown about what new features will be added first. There is also a sense of curiosity for finding out if there are other additions that have no been mentioned publicly.

    I had the opportunity to conduct a interview via Skype with Peter Hajas to ask him a few questions and have him demo some of the upcoming beta4 implementations. Along with his discussion and demo of MobileNotifier, he let's us in on an a few announcements he has not made public; a ModMyi exclusive. The 15 minute video showcases all that was discussed and announced in regards to MobileNotifier and another project Peter Hajas is working on called Widge.

    For bug issues and implementation suggestions, visit MobileNotifier's GitHub page. Also, follow Peter Hajas on Twitter for updates and other tweets regarding MobileNotifier and Widge.



    Feature(s) releasing in the next update:
    • New alert style
    • Lockscreen - list of pending alerts
    • Intelligent alert and dismiss on pending list - dimisses alerts automatically (whether you open the app that has the notifications or you click the notification window)
    • Speed improvements, memory efficiency, less affect on battery life

    Feature(s) coming soon:
    • Quick reply for SMS (internal and native)

    This implementation specifically will begin being tested in the next coming days and should be released in a few weeks.

      I really like this tweak, but can't use it. I'm using Weather Elements v3 for my animated weather Lock screen, and whenever I get a msg iRealSMS pops-up to grab it.

      Dear Peter, you could at least say in your video that you have received contributions to the project. A simple thanks (like you sent in the emails we exchanged would have been enough.

      I like the way it's implemented in your video better. It appears more apple this way. They should also remove the red icon from the lock screen and darken the background from the multitasking interface as it clashes with white backgrounds.

      Good question, because I use Tlert myself. And the answer is: no. Because the Quick Reply will be internal it won't require any other quick reply applications. However, biteSMS will get support but for various other reasons.

      I'm having the same issue also. Feel free to post on the Github with the issue and I'll talk with Peter next time I'm able to.

      Okay sometimes it shows no message at all in the lockscreen, which is kind of annoying.

      Nevermind. I love this app though. Can't wait for quick reply, as I hate biteSMS.

      Er... something else I noticed.

      In the lockscreen, even after you unlock your phone and reply to a message, it'll still show you that you have a missed notification. At least for me.

      Latest version (5/13) seems to have fixed that for me. Lots of cosmetic improvements too.
