todonotes 2

In the summer of 2011, jailbreak developers participated in a cool project called tweak week. Several devs each took a week, and released one new jailbreak tweak everyday. It went on for 3+ months, and we got several great tweaks out of it.

One of those tweaks was ToDoNotes, by TwitkaFly developer moeseth, which added a notepad to the Spotlight page that talked with the Notes app, giving you quick access to your memos. And version 2 just came out with iOS 6 support…

Here’s our review of the original tweak:

For the most part, version 2 of the tweak is exactly like the first. There’s no settings to configure, or icons to worry about. Once installed, just navigate to your device’s Spotlight page and you should see what looks like the outline of a notepad.

The only thing that has changed in ToDoNotes 2 is the way that you add notes to the Spotlight page. Instead of merely tapping the share icon at the bottom of the Notes app, you have to hold it down to access the ‘Push to ToDoNotes’ option.

I usually disable my Spotlight page, as I haven’t quite figured out a good use for it yet. But if you frequently use the search tool, this could come in handy for things like todo lists, telephone messages and anything else you need to reference quickly.

If you’re interested, you can find ToDoNotes 2 in Cydia, in the BigBoss repo, for free.

    Please review TouchPal Keyboard 😀

    • TouchPal is in App Store! I wish there was a cydia tweak to make that a default keyboard!!

      • RarestName

        It is on Cydia ._.
        I’ve been using it since yesterday.

      • DanielMaciasJr

        But is the tweak able to be used as a default keyboard for SMS/MMS/Etc?.

      • RarestName

        Yes, you are able to add it together with your other keyboards and select it like a native keyboard addon.

    hey you should post the april fool prank google is posting on youtube google Nose Beta

    • Bob

      Whilst the Google Nose BETA was indeed an April Fool’s Joke. That doesn’t mean that no one smelt anything from it. It’s called the placebo effect, it’s suggestion and expectation. Research indicates that if you smelt it, you’re probably more creative, open minded and intelligent than those who did not. If you didn’t smell it, it means you’re more critically minded and prone to obvious flattery. It’s the current topic in my Psych class! 🙂

    I can’t seem to get the Swype function to work

  • Steven Lazaroski

    Hi, how do you get tkeyboard size keyboard. When I install touchpal from Cydia and enable the English keyboard in settings I get an old mobile phone keyboard not a full qwerty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • if you look at the top of the keyboard there are 3 dots, which represent the three different types of keyboards you have to use. Swiping left and right will take you between the 3 different styles. the second keyboard is the Swype-like input.

      • Steven Lazaroski

        Ok got it now. Issue was swipe selection. Its not compatible with touchpal. All good. Thanks.
