Thread: 'Prettier Banners' Adds Contact Pictures to Text Message/iMessage Notification Banners

  1. #1
    Default 'Prettier Banners' Adds Contact Pictures to Text Message/iMessage Notification Banners


    If you want to make notification banners for your text messages and iMessages better in iOS 8, then check out a new free jailbreak tweak called Prettier Banners by iOS developer Mohamed Marbouh.

    With this tweak installed, when you receive text messages or iMessages from contacts in your Contacts application, their contact photos will appear in the banner in place of the Messages application icon in the banner, as shown above. The tweak also makes it so that when you're in a group message conversation, all of the names of the participants will be shown on the banner.

    Prettier Banners only works with the Messages application, and not with other applications like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, so this is something to keep in mind. It's also worth noting that the tweak doesn't come with any optiont to configure, so there's no way to enable it or disable it without uninstalling the tweak.

    If you want to give Prettier Banners a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository at no cost. The tweak works with both iOS 7 and iOS 8.

    Additionally, if you're interested in what makes the tweak tick, you can check out the tweak's open-source code at this GitHub link.

    Name: Prettier Banners
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.1-1
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-8.1.1
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1.1

    Developer: Mohamed Marbouh
    Editor's Rating:  4/5

    Just tried Messages Customiser on my iPhone 6 Plus JB iOS 8.1.1 Taig. Message app closes when I try to change bubble colors. Have to uninstall it to get message app to open again. I really like this tweak and hope it is updated soon to work with JB iOS 8.0~8.1.1.
