'NCTerminal' Allows You to Run Commands From Notification Center
If you're a Terminal fan, then check this out!
A new Notification Center add-on dubbed NCTerminal by iOS developer uGuer is now available in Cydia that allows you to run terminal commands right from Notification Center.
Shown above, the add-on places a black text box in Notification Center where you will be able to type in your command lines. After inputting them, you can tap on the Done button to run the command. You will get a notification afterwards saying that the command was either an error or a success depending on if you typed it right.
Notably, the NCTerminal interface isn't an input and output interface in one. If you ever want to see the output from a command that you enter, you'll need to use a file browser like iFile and then navigate to /var/mobile/Documents/NCTerminal/NCTerminal.log to see your output:
Check out the demo video below compliments of the developer:
For a mobile-friendly video link that works with our app, tap on the video link below:
NCTerminal has no options to configure; you can enable or disable the widget at any time by dragging the wigdet in or out of Notification Center via the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application. If you're interested in giving NCTerminal a try, you will find it in Cydia’s BigBoss repository.

I was thinking about making same app but with more functionality (showing output) and free or open source. If you think that it will be useful to you, comment, and maybe I will make it when I get some free time.

Yes..the current terminal app lacks luster and needs more options. It would be great to see some competition.
