iOS-8-Notification-Center-widget-Extensibility

Now that iOS 8 is here, developers are releasing updates to their apps and launching new apps altogether that take advantage of iOS 8’s many new functionalities. Many popular apps are being updated to support Notification Center widgets in the Today view for displaying information and performing actions without having to open the app. We’ve compiled an extensive list of apps that support iOS 8’s new Notification Center APIs and are available to download and install on iOS 8. We’re working to populate the index continuously as more updates are released, so check back frequently.

    Yahoo Weather

  • Dan

    hoping to see one for Fantastical

    • Jason Baroni

      I thought the same. I am sure Fantastical can develop something truly great for widgets.

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    Buzzfeed and TwoDots have one, but cant get them to work though.

    • Jose Gonzalez

      Same here with Two Dots.

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        Yeah I thought there might be a “Turn widget on” option in notification settings. I hit the edit button on the Today view as well and added it so thats not the problem. Did you add it as well?

      • Jose Gonzalez

        Yeah I did. In the app there isn’t any new toggles so i don’t know. I’m guessing they will fix it soon.

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        Yeah guess so.

      • dpacemaker

        It should show what level your on at least. If you have any “quests” it will show those too.

  • Jose Gonzalez

    Parcel, Discover, Two Dots…

    • josemunozmatos

      The Discover one is great!

      • Jose Gonzalez

        Yeah I liked it too.

  • Blist

    wtf is wrong with my signal bars?

    • Jonathan

      You jailbroken? lol

      • Blist

        No. But I updated jailbroken device.. How to fix this now? 🙁

      • Mr.Coolfreak

        It will fix itself, just cache from your JB

      • Blist

        Oh, okay. Thank you 🙂

      • Fanboy 

        Do a fresh RESTORE from iTunes! Screw updating. Plug it into a desktop!

      • Jonathan

        See my response to someone else on here. 🙂

      • GuyBey0ndC00L

        He’s thinks were stupid

      • Jonathan

        No…some tweaks leave behind their effect on the device even after restoring. He must have restored from that backup, which still had jailbreak data still in it.

        Example: SBSettings leaves behind turning on battery percentage or internet number or whatever they’re called. Zeppelin may have just done the same thing here.

        I only have 2 ideas.
        Wait for it to be gone through time (try a couple reboots too), or simply restore clean.

      • GuyBey0ndC00L

        True

      • NeftyCorrea

        he’s right i had inappstore tweak and everything i bought in a app stayed

  • Jason Baroni

    News Republic has a widget, too!

  • VITICO

    why they show us espn as an example and yet i cant use espn as a widget..

    • Chocolope Jailbreakush

      I know thats so annoying.

    • Because that’s the example that Apple first showed off a while ago.

      • VITICO

        exactly… so why not have it ready for the day ios 8 launched..

      • iBanks

        Ask ESPN

      • Don’t ask me, ask ESPN

      • VITICO

        you commented, right?…

  • Jason Baroni

    My iTranslate widget doesn’t work. Anyone else?

    • avd98

      Me too

    • Ruben Sissing

      Me to

    • a3yu

      Working for me

      • Jason Baroni

        It seems they had a fix for it at the time you commented. Thank you!

  • Zach

    Anyone have ScoreCenter widget? One of the biggest reasons I’m upgrading

    • Tony Trenkle Jr.

      They havent updated yet.

  • Brandon Higgins

    Can’t wait for the Hue widget.

  • Jonathan

    I’m biting my tongue… should I update or stay jailbroken on 7.1.2??

    • Same here. But it’s not about should, it’s lose JB glory for a chance to check out the new features (while most require Yosemite’s full release end of October) I’ll wait till Yosemite’s out.

      • Dan

        I’m guessing a jailbreak for iOS 8 will be available for A7 soon enough, A8 is another matter.

      • eXoguti093

        Having the same problem here.. Although when I think about it, I’m more interested with Quick Reply and the Nin keyboard which one is on iOS 8 and the other might be coming… That’s a big might though..

    • sdhn

      YOLO

      update to iOS 8

    • Zach

      I’m in the same boat. Jailbreaking has just gotten old to me, I’ve done it ever since iOS 4 or 5 so I’m thinking about updating and maybe waiting for the iOS 8 one.

    • R4

      I updated, iOS8 is worth losing JB imo.

    Are anyone’s widgets actually working?

    • ericesque

      My Wunderlist widget is working. Several other apps at least show up in the list to add, but I haven’t tried them yet.

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        Mine are working now. Buzzfeed had to sent out another update for it to work so its working now.

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    So awesome and so about time.

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    Feels like a jailbreak but 100x awesome. Come on Espn

    • Jason Baroni

      I wish Spotify could come up with something to NC

      • GuyBey0ndC00L

        Soon I bet

  • Kevin Rojas

    WOW. Good work, seriously that photo frame is all I needed.

  • @dongiuj

    I wish apple would have widgets on the home screen/lock screen. If I’m going to check notification center every time then I might as well open the app.

    • mlee19841

      wishful thinking. gotta switch over to get them

      • @dongiuj

        Or have a laggy unstable jailbreak tweak.

  • Bruce D Milyko

    • Jason Baroni

      I am excited for Twitter and Facebook quick replies. These apps can be much better with widgets, though.

  • Raphael Floriano

    hope that google search app comes with google now cards implemented in widgets bar.

  • Paul March

    Ok, am I missing something??? The one example they show in the screen shoot, “SportsCenter” does not exist?? Or I can’t get it to show up.

    • Chocolope Jailbreakush

  • G-HaB

  • Lizmay

    The weather Chanel has it but it doesn’t seem to work to well.

  • Amine El Mrabet

    • Amine El Mrabet

      cool !!

    • Guest

      Launcher

  • Amine El Mrabet

    there is an app called Launcher its so cool it let u lunch apps or contacts from NC

    • Sadly that was taken off the app store. Apple told the dev they were pulling it unless there was an update to not directly connect to the other applications. He submitted one but it wasn’t what they wanted and quickly pulled it. It looked perfect for those who like jailbreak material but without doing that.

      • Robin de Groot

        Luckely there is still an alternative in the App Store called Quick-Tap. Give Quick-Tap widget a try (while it’s still in the App Store) and use the feature Add Item (Safari Browser) > More > Browse to… >
        enter URLs + then choose a name for it
        and enter this as URL for publishing a tweet for example: twitter://post?message
        Apple Notes app:
        mobilenotes://
        or this to check your WIFI connections:
        prefs:root=General&path=Network
        Settings > Location services:
        prefs:root=LOCATION_SERVICES

        Settings Accessibility:
        prefs:root=General&path=ACCESSIBILITY

        Mobile data:
        prefs:root=MOBILE_DATA_SETTINGS_ID

        spotify://search
        onepassword://search/apple

        Also there are Quickiee, Gestlaunch + Widget and Swype Call still in the App Store but they have less features and most of them open their own app first.

      • Thank you, I have that widget so I’ll make sure to add those items.

  • Alex Blaha

    Post-it Plus also has one.

  • Cassandra

    My wattpad widget still doesn’t show
