NoNewApp removes “new” badging from newly installed apps

By , Nov 11, 2012

Do you find yourself hating the “new” badge that appears on newly installed apps from the App Store? I must admit, that even if I have no intentions of using a newly downloaded app right away, I’ll at least open it once to rid it of that ugly badge.

If you happen to jailbroken, there’s an even easier way to get rid of the eyesore, and it’s called NoNewApp. NoNewApp is a recently released jailbreak tweak that prevents the “new” badge from appearing on newly downloaded apps.

Want to see how it works? Take a look inside for our full video walkthrough…

As you can see, NoNewApp is a simple tweak with no settings or options for you to configure; just install it and go. If you want to give it a try for yourself, then head over to Cydia’s ModMyi repo where it can be had free of charge.

Remember, you’ll need to be on iOS 6 for this tweak to be of any use to you. That’s because the “new” app badges are a relatively new addition that first appeared with iOS 6.

    If you hate the badge so much just open the app and close it…but then again is it that big of a deal to start with, You wouldn’t download the app if you didn’t want it so what the problem if its got a badge on it saying NEW until you open the app .. Yet again another pointless tweak to sort through when your trying to find something that’s worth having..

    Unless video and article imo, as mentioned by others. Why not upload up dated videos on how-to jailbreak, stitch firmware, etc (matters of real substance and effort)?
