    Default [Review] Notificator - Systemwide Notification Banners


    iOS 5 comes with notifications for all of your push notification-enabled applications. They will pop up as banners as long as you have the banner functionality enabled through your Settings application. If you have ever wanted to get notifications for more than just applications, but also system events such as turning off radios, taking screenshots, installing applications, and so much more, then a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Notifictor by iOS developer McNight may tickle your fancy.

    Setting you back just 99Ę, Notificator has a ton of settings to configure, which allow you to choose which system events will display banners and even the capability of playing a sound with the banner. Notificator will give you the choice to pick which sound you want to hear for the notification as well. Now Ė when we say tons of settings, we mean it! The settings would have been so long that we had to make two separate images to display them:



    From the preferences pane of Notificator, you can set banners and sounds for all of the following events:
    • application installation
    • connecting and disconnecting from a power supply
    • beginning a sync with iTunes
    • turning Wi-Fi on or off
    • joining a Wi-Fi network
    • turning Bluetooth on or off
    • turning airplane mode on or off
    • turning 3G on or off
    • connecting a headset device
    • taking a screenshot
    • when your battery becomes 20% or 10%

    The sounds that you can use for these notifications are limited to a small list of predefined text message tones. You can set a different sound for each notification so you can discern between them. When you receive a banner notification from Notificator, the tweak will intelligently show you the icon of the application that it refers to, which helps make it feel more native. Unfortunately, these banners will not be spoken out loud by Notification-announcing tweaks like Aloud and SpeakEvents.

    There are parts and pieces about Notificator that Iím not particularly sure I like. For example, having a banner hover over my screen subsequent to everything I do does seem a little bit bothersome and would easily get in the way of operating your navigation buttons, however if you arenít sure whether something has worked or not then Notificator will unquestionably alert you that you have done it correctly.

    If you like the idea of iOS 5-style banner notifications popping up after most of your toggling events, application installations, and more, then this tweak is worth taking a look at. If you abhor popups, then this tweak isnít for you. You can enable and disable the entire tweak at any time or even enable and disable each of the individual notifications at your leisure. This will give you some wiggle room to keep your iDevice from getting blown up with banners. Notificator requires iOS 5 to install and the developer promises to always consider any requests for future features.

    This seem like it would irritate me after a few notifications. I will pass.
