Just like iOS 6, iOS 7 has seen no shortage of Notification Center tweaks and widgets. One such example is NCMemo, a brand new tweak that debuted in Cydia recently and provides a convenient way of taking notes and memos.

NCMemo adds a resizable text box to Notification Center, under the ‘Today’ tab, allowing you to create notes and memos conveniently from anywhere within iOS.

Pull down Notification Center and start typing your note. Once you’re done, you can hide the keyboard by tapping the right side of the box or anywhere outside it.

The tweak also provides the ability to adjust the text box and font size, background color, font color and much more from the tweak’s preferences pane.


Once you install the tweak, you’ll have to enable it from the Notification Center pane in the Settings app. To do so, Go to Settings > Notification Center and toggle NCMemo to on. You can also adjust its position in Notification Center by tapping on the ‘Edit’ button in the top right corner and grabbing the position handles to adjust its place.


NCMemo also comes with a preferences pane filled with various sliders allowing you to configure the tweak’s text box and font size, background and text color, transparency and more, as mentioned earlier. Choosing a color requires you to adjust the RGB (red, green and blue) sliders and the font is available in sizes 9 to 36.

Note that if you’re not able to see NCMemo in Notification Center, you’ll have to reboot your device several times until it appears. I had to reboot my device twice to get it to work.

NCMemo definitely provides an easier and more convenient way of creating notes and memos on the go from anywhere within iOS. If you’re looking for a quicker way to take notes, I’d recommend you to try NCMemo. The tweak can be installed for free via Cydia’s ModMyi repo and it supports all iOS 7 devices.

    This tweak is ill it makes it so much easier to place my bets now I don’t have to keep switching back to notes

      You should move to prowidgets bcz it is easier than ncmemo. You just need any activator gesture to activate it. Besides there are more widgets like popup safari browser, calculator, reminder… Etc. U’ll love it..

  • There’s an actual app in the App Store that does something like this, minus some of the font tweaks and stuff. It’s called WidgetMemo.

    If someone could please help that would greatly appreciated, ok so I downloaded a tweak that not only pauses my song on screen dimming, when I press the power, or home buttons. It is not AutoPause because although I downloaded that as well I did remove and the same thing happens I do not know what I downloaded but if any body could please help that would be great.

    having an issue with this tweak, when i go to my ‘all’ tab in NC and click on a notification to open, it launches the keyboard to start typing into the NCmemo section, any solution? or is this an early bug?
    Also i am using BetterNC7 as well if that has anything to do with it
