Many of you are familiar with Auxo
, a new jailbreak tweak that reinvents the App Switcher for iOS. The great mind behind the design of Auxo, Sentry_NC
, is at it again, this time with a concept that changes the way we toggle Do Not Disturb in iOS 6.
The concept brings the ability to toggle Do Not Disturb on and off from Notification Center. This makes perfect sense, because Notification Center is designed for notifications and Do Not Disturb is used to moderate when you receive and don’t receive Notifications. In fact, Apple has designed the Mac version of Do Not Disturb to be toggled on and off from Notification Center as well:
Quite frankly, a switch wouldn’t look right in Notification Center for iOS. With the Mac, where you use an actual pointing device like a trackpad or external mouse, you can click the switch to enable it. However with an iOS device, users are going to want to take advantage of the touch screen – pull down and release seems like the best way to do that.
The concept calls for the user to pull down and release while in Notification Center in iOS, similarly to pulling down and releasing to refresh your e-mail or Twitter feed. As you pull down, you’ll see the moon icon for Do Not Disturb animate through the stages of round to crescent with the same eclipse animation you see in the Status Bar when you turn Do Not Disturb on or off – it’s very seamless.
By moving the Do Not Disturb toggle to Notification Center, the user can easily enable and disable the feature that keeps people from bugging them at inopportune times, such as when sleeping, when in meetings, or when in class without having to dig through multiple home screen icons to find the Settings application, and then a number of preference panes in the Settings application to do so.
We think the idea would be awesome for a future jailbreak tweak. What do you think?
