Improve Do Not Disturb with ‘DNDPro’

By , Nov 22, 2013

DNDPro

DNDPro is a new jailbreak tweak from dba Technologies. It serves to improve iOS’s native Do Not Disturb capabilities by letting you control notifications while using certain apps.

DNDPro offers more granular control than the stock Do Not Disturb functionality. You can decided to disable all alerts while within a specific app, or only let banner notifications through.

If you like Do Not Disturb, but don’t feel like it caters enough to power users, DNDPro is a tweak that should pique your interest. Have a look inside as we break down its features.

DND Pro

Once installed, DNDPro alters the stock Do Not Disturb settings located in Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb. You may also access the new DNDPro settings via its own separate preference panel link, though, the settings are exactly the same as those contained in the stock location. If anything, I think that DNDPro should have omitted its own preference panel, because it will likely confuse users who find the exact same information in two separate locations.

DNDPro Preferences

You’ll find two new settings nestled in the stock Do Not Disturb location once DNDPro is installed: Force Do Not Disturb, and Show Banners Only. The first option, Force Do Not Disturb, will suppress all incoming notifications when the selected applications are open. The second option, Show Banners Only, will show incoming notifications as banners instead of alerts.

Each of the new settings require users to go in and toggle the specific apps they want to enable. Unfortunately, there are no options to toggle all apps, and there’s no option to suppress notifications while at the Springboard level. These omissions are a bit disappointing. I’m hoping that dba Technologies will update its tweak to include these two features.

DNDPro is available right now via Cydia’s ModMyi repo for $0.99. If you’re looking for more granular control over the stock DND feature found in iOS 6, then you may want to check it out, even though it lacks a couple of features that would really make it live up to its “pro” moniker. Please share your thoughts on the tweak below.

    Luna should have introduced similar functionality and even more, long ago. Too bad such DND enhancements never saw the light. A3Tweaks, hello?

    This should be built into iOS without a doubt.

      Don’t worry, it will be. Apple steals practically every good Cydia tweak & ideas, then adds them into their next major version of iOS.

        Thank god for that. If it weren’t for the jailbreak community we’d be years behind where we are.

        Ios is years behind the JB scene.

    Now just an ios 7 jailbreak

    I suggest that Tweaks Reviews should be ‘paused’ until iOS 7 JB comes out. If not,those that upgraded(which are the majority) would be missing out lots of reviews.
