Following last month’s monstrous 5.2 release that brought about push notifications and other changes, Iconfactory has released another major update for its popular Twitter client, Twitterrific. Today’s update brings the app to version 5.2.1, and again adds several new features.
Perhaps the most significant part of the update is the addition of notification badges, which tells you your number of unread notifications for the app at a glance. It also brings support for Favstar and Twitter’s trending topics, and a number of other bug fixes and improvements… Read More
Badger — the highly anticipated jailbreak tweak that let’s you view notifications right on the Home screen — has been updated. The tweak, still in beta, continues to receive incremental updates as it inches closer to a public release.
In our very first look at the tweak, Badger was extremely limited, only allowing users to view notifications for the Messages app. After the recent updates, Badger now allows users to view notifications for every app installed on the device, and more. Read More
Yesterday we showed you a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to customize the look of your app icon badges. And today, we’ve got something for those of you who’d rather just get rid of them. Introducing Badge Clearer.
Yes, I’m well aware that there are already a few tweaks out there that clear app badges. In fact, we just reviewed one a few weeks ago called Clear Badges. But this one goes about doing it a little bit differently than they do… Read More
Today we’re going to be taking a look at Badge Customizer, a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to customize the look of your app icon badges in iOS 6. You can alter their color, size and where they are positioned on your Home screen icons.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Cody, there’s already tweaks out there that do this.” And you’re right. There’s AppTag, and I’m sure a few others. But I don’t know how many of them work with iOS 6. Besides, it never hurts to have options… Read More
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could tap an app badge and be given a synopsis of the app’s awaiting notifications? That’s the premise behind BadgerTweak, an upcoming endeavor that allows “…users to view notifications by tapping the app’s notification badge on the SpringBoard.”
According to the tweak’s official Twitter account, it’s coming soon to Cydia, and will work with more than just the Messages app. Although the tweak is still in development, the team behind it has apparently made a few strides in the developmental process as of late. Read More
When it comes to getting rid of those little red bubbles that hover over your app icons, there’s been no shortage of options in Cydia. Let’s see, there was BadgeClear, BadgeRemover and No Badges, to name a few.
But unfortunately, most of these tweaks either haven’t been updated for iOS 6 or cost money, making them non-options for a lot of folks. And that’s where the new jailbreak package Clear Badges comes in… Read More
Do you harbor an abnormal amount of hatred for the notification badges that litter your iPhone’s Home screen? If so, then perhaps these new jailbreak apps will satisfy your craving for badge destruction.
No AppStore Badges, No Cydia Badges, and OTA Begone are three new jailbreak apps that will help eliminate notification badges. But as you’ll come to understand, it doesn’t make sense to install any of these if your aim is to simply eliminate all badges.
There’s something much better already available in Cydia from a well respected developer. Check inside for the full details… Read More
If you’re looking for a way to remove your app notification badges in one fell swoop, there are many options to do so. Just search for “badges” in Cydia, and you’re bound to come up with a few options for suppressing those annoying badges.
And then there are tweaks like Springtomize 2, which removes badges, along with about a million other functions.
But if you just want a tweak that will silence your app badges, and nothing else, then there’s a new option called BadgeRemover… Read More
