Add A New Animation to Notification Center Using 'NCEffect'
Sometimes Appleís stock animations donít cut it and where something needs to be changed, you can bet jailbreak developers will be working to change it. The Notification Center animation that we are all used to in iOS is one where Notification Center drops down over the interface we have open. Now, with a free jailbreak tweak dubbed NCEffect by iOS developer Ron Melkhior, you can make the interface you are in squish down below Notification Center as it drops.
The animation probably looks familiar, as it is also present in the paid jailbreak tweak called WeeRoll, which we showed you back in February. The animation is very aggressive as it appears to be crushing your home screen instead of fluidly dropping over it. For some, this type of animation may not be preferred, however it's always cool to have some kind of option rather than what Apple wants.
Since this tweak is free, itís a good and worthwhile way to get this animation if you like it. However, if you want this animation and more, it could be a better idea to take a look at WeeRoll. You can also check out WeeRoll Lite, which has more than one animation for free excluding this one. The developer may also add support for this animation in WeeRoll Lite in the future.
NCEffect has no options to configure, so you will need to uninstall it to disable it if you ever decided you didnít like it. Additionally, if you use Zephyr, you will need to disable the Notification Center effect for NCEffect to work. If you don't disable the Zephyr Notification Center effect, then Zephyr will supersede NCEffect and you won't see NCEffect's animation.

Don't get me wrong because it's a free tweak and well done, but just a heads up if u use a clear notification center background it looks kinda funny cuz u still see your wallpaper the whole time. So no complaints, but it wasn't for me.

Now THIS is a tweak. Clean, attractive, and functional. I saw in a previous article somebody said "another great review by bouchard" with sarcasm. In this case, i saw another great review by bouchard without sarcasm, which people should say more often.(null)
