  • MobileNotifier : Improve your iOS Notification System
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRU6_QnwNCE]YouTube - MobileNotifier beta3 Demo[/ame]



    It amazes me at what you can do with a Jailbroken iDevice these days. Peter Hajas and Kyle Adams have created another brilliant reason to jailbreak your iDevice.

    If you've ever felt frustrated with the way your iDevice displays notifications to you of messages and alerts, then this jailbreak tweak will have you jumping for joy. MobileNotifier beta v3 is a free open-source, complete rewrite of the iOS notification system.

    MobileNotifier moves any notifications to the top of the screen rather than completely over your app, also granting you the ability to ignore these pop-ups without keeping you locked out of your current activity. If you want, you can even store them away for later, all of which can be viewed by double tapping your home bar (Task Switcher). These pending messages are displayed in the area above the task switcher, and even on the main lockscreen. Pretty smart if you ask me

    Haven't jailbroken your iDevice yet? Now might be the time.

    The app will be available in Cydia for FREE! Yes I said FREE. Kyle says it will be "free forever".

    While still in Beta, it should be near completion soon! Stay Tuned!

    For those eager to jump right in, here is the Beta repo: http://phajas.xen.prgmr.com/repo

    Check out Peter's blog for more information. peterhajas(dot)com - blog

    It is with great excitement that I release this build of MobileNotifier. This is the largest change since the project's inception, and I believe it's really ready for general use. Read on for the details.
    Keep in mind, MobileNotifier is open source! You can access all the source on GitHub. It's BSD licensed.
    Before I go any further, the UI design work was done by Kyle Adams, a talented graphics artist who's contributed his free time to the project. Be sure to follow him on twitter @iamkyleadams, or check out his website, kyleadams.org.
    In the third beta - referred to internally as "Copious Corn Flakes" - everything's been reworked. The utility is sleaker, faster, leaner, better looking, and considerably refined.

      i wish u could disable the double click home screen/spotlight notifier. kinda annoying having to clear each message out one by one. i mean there is no privacy with this app, once you double click and go to the mobilenotifier. i wish you could disable the double click and id be happy

      I would like just the page in the multitasking bar, the pop up is the same except its at the top which makes it look uneven to me, and "close" is replaced with "later". I prefer apples bubble thing but not when theres multiple messages, thats when it sucks. I think lockinfo is still a better replacement and with a good theme it looks nice.

      I did reistall , still doesn't open up upon tapping. I also have Elert and Tlert installed , not sure if these causes problem or this version of MobileNotifier needs an update or still buggy.

      This is awesome, but it definitely needs some work - so I'm not currently using it. Can anyone find the location of the files through SSH?

      I've been playing with this today. It's pretty cool, my only gripe with it is that it replaces my SMS tone...and the notify sound is pretty quiet and short. If I was able to keep my original tone for SMS I'd like it more.

      Using Notified Pro and LockInfo to replace default iOS notifications [Jailbreak] | iSource

      I just installed this and it was working fine, but now for some reasons I get no pop ups at all anywhere when I received SMS or email etc. They show on on the lockscreen and infoshade however. Any ideas?

      Seems GRiP plugin isn't working correctly perhaps?
