NCFold Today View

NCFold is a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows users to group together sections of Notification Center into a folder-like structure. The purpose of the tweak, as stated in its Cydia description, is to make Notification Center more simple and efficient.

For the most part, the Cydia description rings true. NCFold does allow for a simplified Notification Center view, yet you can easily expand the folded sections that it creates with just a tap. Check out our walkthrough of NCFold after the break.

As you can see from our video walkthrough, grouped sections aren’t just limited to incoming notifications, but they work with the content found on Notification Center’s Today View as well. Tapping a section allows you to toggle between folded mode and expanded mode.

After installing NCFold, you’ll need to venture to the Settings app to enable the tweak; it is disabled by default after installation. In NCFold’s preferences, you’ll find a few toggles geared towards altering the look of the folders found in Notification Center.

NCFold

Users can choose to enable a split line feature to further define the Notification Center’s folded areas, and a message number toggle to show a running count of all messages appearing within a folder. There’s also a multi-line message preview option, and a toggle to enable unlimited recent items.

Users are not required to initiate a respring in order to make any of the preference changes take effect. Simply toggle the desired feature, and the changes will happen on the fly.

NCFold is available for purchase on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $1.00. Would you consider using it? Let me know what you think down below in the comments section.

    I tried it. Liked the concept. Hated that it removed the weather and upcoming schedule info though in NC. You can see the date and calendar but that’s all. Didn’t like that.

      Thanks for posting that, was wondering. Definitely a no go for me then.

    • Darren

      Well that’s stupid. That’s definitely a deal breaker.

      Try “Bulletin” tweak

  • deepdvd

    I’m almost tempted to buy it because the price is $1 instead of $0.99. Wish people would stop appending .99 on the end of prices.

  • weztimonial

    It crashes for me if you double tap on the folded notifications 🙁 Its like priorityhub for the NC 🙂

  • max

    whats that tweak that showed up when you started pulling down inside the notificaton center?

  • DEEPANGEORGE

    Try “Bulletin” tweak its similar to this but with one difference its way better than this and it also costs around this(0.99 to be exact). Bulletin has background changing option too along with folder like structure and it won’t mess up today’s view so i think all will like Bulletin than this so guys try that out, i have mistakenly bought this first in confusion with Bulletin but glad i can support developer still. I think Jeff should have noted Bulletin in comparison still this is good tweak if it won’t mess up today’s view that is

      Edit: Today’s view is fixed now, this is a good tweak along with bulletin

  • Simon Yung

    the word “fold” had me thinking something else. so this basically allows you to have collapsible sections in notifications center…

  • John Willis

    would love a spotlight fold tweak!!!
