'Overview' Puts Your Calendar Events, Reminders, and E-mails All in One Place
If you utilize Calendar, Reminders, and E-mails a lot, then you may want to check out a new Notification Center widget called Overview by iOS developer Alan Yip. Shown above, the widget brings everything together in a small, visually-appealing widget rather than having multiple threads of notifications in Notification Center.
On the left side of the widget, you will get the current time, along with the current date. On the right side of the widget, you will get all of your E-mail notifications, your Calendar events, and your Reminders; you can swipe through them with your finger.
Reminders come complete with a “Complete” button for saying you completed the Reminder, and a “Delete” button for removing the reminder outright. If you tap on an E-mail, you will get a "Mark As..." button for marking the message as read or flagged, and a "Delete" button for deleting the E-mail.
If you tap and hold on any of the views, you will be brought to the corresponding application so you can edit the information. For example, tapping and holding on a Calendar event in the widget will open the Calendar application to the event that you set so you can edit it. Tapping and holding on an E-mail will open the e-mail so you can read it, etc.
Once installed, Overview can be enabled or disabled at any time by simply dragging the widget in or out of Notification Center from the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application:
From Overview’s preferences pane in the Settings application, you can pick between having 24-hour time or 12-hour time, choose to hide notifications from Notification Center that appear in the widget instead, show previews and a specific number of them, choose a list size, a number of items, a show event in option, and a configure pages option that lets you show or hide elements from the widget or re-order them:
Alan notes that Overview integrates with his “Tap to Widgets” Notification Center widgets so you can add events to Calendar, Reminders, and such. Overview also works great with tweaks that add Notification Center to the lock screen, such as IntelliScreenX.
If you would like to give Overview a try, the tweak is available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for $1.99. It is compatible with iOS 6.0 and later.
