Compared to iOS 6, Notification Center has been upgraded a little in iOS 7 but there’s still some room for improvement. Just like iOS 6, there is a lot of jailbreak tweaks on Cydia that will bring new features to iOS 7 Notification Center and allow you to customize it. These range from providing additional statistics about your device to placing your favorite apps right at your finger tips.

This is why we have compiled a complete list of the best jailbreak tweaks for Notification Center on iOS 7 that will help you get the most out of it.

BetterNC7 comes with a bunch of toggles that allow you to enable or disable certain Notification Center features. These include hiding separators, Yahoo logo, or tabs, transforming the background in Notification Center to transparent, removing the blur effect and much much more. It’s more like an all-in-one tweak rather than serving a single purpose. Best of all, BetterNC7 is available on Cydia for free.

NCMemo

A new “AppTray” tab will be added to Notification Center and all your favorite apps will go in there. You can add as many apps as you want without any limits as well as adjust icon opacity.

AppTray is currently available for $1.49 on Cydia.

If you’re a big fan of social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter, you might want to check out Share Widgets for iOS 7.

If you’re looking for a way to make your Notification Center cleaner, make sure to check out NCFold. The tweak places your notifications into similar groups to make it more simple and efficient to view them. Tapping on a section allows you to switch between the folded or expanded view.

NCObey

By default, when you swipe down the Home screen to open bring up Notification Center, it will display the last opened tab. With NCObey, you can set the default tab that you want to be displayed first when you open Notification Center and you can also set the ‘Today’ tab as the default tab when there are no pending notifications.

Additionally, NCObey adds three gestures that allow you to go directly to a specific tab: swipe down on the far left of the screen to open the ‘Today’ view, swipe down from the middle area to open the ‘All’ tab and swipe down from the far right of the screen to open the ‘Missed’ tab.

NCObey can be installed for free via Cydia’s BigBoss repository.

NCSingleTapClear

When you have a lot of notifications piled up, it takes some time to remove all of them from Notification Center. NCSingleTapClear speeds up the process by allowing you to tap the ‘X’ button only once to remove the notifications instead of tapping twice. This tweak can be downloaded for free from the BigBoss repo.

    • NaSty

      …and NCSettings, gawd that was the shit

  • JoshuaHulgan

    While many on this site disagree, with iOS 8 I no longer have the need to jailbreak. Honestly, I think I’m also just tired of the trouble.

    • Jailbreaking isn’t trouble at least not if you know what you’re doing…

      I have all these tweaks installed and not one of them causes any problems for my 5s:

      • JoshuaHulgan

        I’ve been jail breaking

      • MikeOxlong

        Even if apple resolved all tweak related issues which forced me to jailbreak, I’d still do it solely for Adblock. That’s basically the very first thing that’s installed upon a new setup. That, and f.lux.

      • Brian May

        And iFile and Activator. Reasons enough to jailbreak right there

      • MikeOxlong

        For sure.

      • Jonathan

        Nice profile pic.
        (used to be mine a long time ago)

      • h4nd0fg0d

        Boo hoo

      • MikeOxlong

        Jesus.

      • Brian May

        Holy Tweak Heaven Batman! Seriously nice setup Aidan. Nice to see someone else still rocking the ProTube extension. I will not update that app lol

      • rockdude094

        That’s amazing 😐

      • The iPhone 5s is amazing 😉

      • rockdude094

        I have one as well mate. The battery needs a major improvement tho.

      • Jonathan

        How’d you spice all those screenshots together?

        But still, my iPod would probably die under those many…

      • An app called Stitch It:
        itunes.apple[.]com/gb/app/stitch-it!-save-share-texts!/id554594252?mt=8

      • Jonathan

        Cool thanks. =)

      • Varun Soi

        Is your phone working good with priority hub? Because my phone always gets into safe mode Everytime getting a new notification!

      • No problems with the latest beta:

        cydia.myrepospace[.]com/shivadoc

      • Danial Hakim

        Seriously? wow… so many tweak! no problem at all? how about battery?

      • Battery life is pretty much what you’d expect. It obviously takes a hit having so much tweaks installed but I carry a portable battery charger around with me since the battery life of iPhones before the 6/6 plus isn’t great anyway…

    • Sean Keenan

      Totally agree. Less than a month till it’s released to, can’t wait.

    • h4nd0fg0d

      Lol, what trouble…

  • Aleandro green

    can someone help me out? since the two most recent updates of groovylock i have not been able to use any functions on my ls, i cant drag up to get my controls and i cant pull down to show my notification centre. has anyone had this issue? or know how to fix it?

    • Have you tried uninstalling groovylock?

      • Aleandro green

        no i did try that. im guessing that isnt a setting that was added?

  • Linton Findlay

    Intelliscreen X! So useful

  • Sticktron

    The picture of Notific8 is of an old build… the section headers are no longer mis-aligned.

    Thanks for including my tweaks 🙂
