Thread: 'MarkAsRead7' Removes Icon Badges When Clearing Notifications From Notification Center

    Default 'MarkAsRead7' Removes Icon Badges When Clearing Notifications From Notification Center


    From iOS 7's Notification Center, you will find a tab called "All" that shows all of the notifications that you've missed. You will also see an "X" button that reveals a "Clear" button when tapped, which will clear that notification from Notification Center when tapped. Unfortunately, this won't mark the notification as read.

    Since most of us can agree that we clear unnecessary notifications that we don't care too much about, or that we've already seen, it would make sense to mark the notification as read and remove the badge from the application icon after we clear it from Notification Center.

    That's the idea behind a new free jailbreak tweak called MarkAsRead7 by iOS developer Pigi Galdi.

    With this tweak installed, whenever you clear a notification from Notification Center, the badge on the corresponding application icon will also disappear, effectively marking the notification as read – good riddance!

    The tweak doesn't have any options to configure, and it's relatively straight forward to use. It doesn't modify the way you have to do things to mark messages as read; just keep doing what you usually do, and you'll start seeing the benefits. If you want to give MarkAsRead7 a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    MarkAsRead7 is an open source jailbreak tweak, and if you're interested in looking at the source code for the tweak, you can head over to GitHub via this link.
