[Review] FastClear - Easy Notification Clearing
When Notification Center dispatched with iOS 5, we liked how all of our notifications were all congealed in one place. There was no more of going into each application on our home screen to go through and clear out all of the badges we saw. Unfortunately, even Notification Center's way of terminating notifications has been deemed redundant – having to tap the 'X' button and then the 'clear' button for each individual application.
A new jailbreak tweak dubbed FastClear by iOS developer rud0lf77 helps us to eliminate that redundancy by permitting us to tap only the 'clear' button to remove the notifications for each application instead of having the two-step process of tapping 'X' and then 'clear.' As made evident by the screenshots above – FastClear is a one-step procedure for getting rid of notifications.
This kind of functionality comes with Filippo Bigarella’s $2.99 Springtomize 2 application for iOS 5, which is an extensive SpringBoard customization platform. The setting is called Instant Clear from the Notification Center settings. Albeit Springtomize 2 is a great deal for its extensive settings, if you aren’t out to spend any money then FastClear will make a great free substitute for you and your Notification Center dismissal needs. Unfortunately, FastClear cannot be deactivated like the Springtomize 2 setting can be. The only way to disable the setting would be to remove the jailbreak tweak.
If you are the type of person to be clumsy, you may not like FastClear. Once you tap on the 'clear' button, the notification is gone. Apple’s two-step process is made in such a way to keep accidents from removing notifications by mistake. FastClear requires iOS 5 because it depends on Notification Center. You can snag your free copy from the ModMyi repo today.

I don't see why anyone would want to toggle this when it's a stand-alone package.Let's go Red Wings!

Is it just for jailbreakers, or do text messages always appear above the stocks widget?

You can re-arrange how apps are sorted in the notification center. Just go to Settings > Notifications > Hit "edit" in the top right corner and you can re-arrange the sorting as you see fit.
As for the tweak, it's cool - but I also have Springtomize 2.
I'd still like to see something like biteSMS x button on the lockscreen for notification clearing.
