Apple’s new firmware won’t be officially available for another few months, but that hasn’t stopped the jailbreak community from experimenting with the beta release. We’ve seen several iOS 5 Notification Center widgets over the last few weeks, but there’s always room for more.

The latest jailbreak tweak to surface for the new iOS is called QuickComposer. The widget allows you to access the composition screen of different applications with a single tap…

iPhoneItalia explains that QuickComposer stores 5 icons in the iOS Notification Center that open up to their respective apps. Email, SMS, Twitter, Notes and Reminder all get shortcuts in this innovative widget.

The nice thing is that tapping each icon launches you into the application’s composition screen, saving the user an extra step or 2 when inspiration strikes. For instance, tapping the SMS icon launches you into the “new message” screen of the app and the same thing with Email and Twitter.

I like the idea of quick access to apps like Reminder and Email, but I don’t ever use the Notes app. Hopefully by the time this widget is ready to go there will be support for other applications like BiteSMS and Evernote.

iPhoneItalia has QuickComposer slated to release shortly after iOS 5 officially launches. Some developers haven’t been too keen on releasing anything iOS 5-related until the NDA is lifted when the final version is made available to the public this fall.

What do you think of QuickComposer?

    We need biteSMS style quick compose and quick reply… Can’t live without it. I hope Peter Hajas adds his MobileNotifier style quick replies to iOS 5.

    I’m kinda hoping they open up the notifications to developers so apps like biteSMS can leverage it and available in app store. Not holding my breath though. Apple is a wee bit too much of a control freak.

    I’m just waiting for the Jailbreaking of iPad2 so I can jail break mine.
