IconNotifier: Another Unique Alternative to iOS Notifications

Late last month, developer Peter Hajas introduced MobileNotifier, a complete replacement of Apple’s aging iOS notifications system. The jailbreak tweak became incredibly popular, showing how much iPhone owners are longing for a better notifications system.

Following MobileNotifier comes another alternative to the iOS notifications system courtesy of the jailbreak community, called iconNotifier.

iconNotifier brings a whole new and unique concept for notifications to the iPhone. Instead of pop-up alerts or a notifications list, iconNotifier will reroute app notifications and display the notification message right under the appropriate app icon on your home screen.

Currently, the tweak only works with the following iOS applications:

  • Phone
  • VoiceMail
  • SMS
  • Push
  • Calendar
  • Alarm
  • Timer
  • LowPower
  • iPod
  • Popup blocker

No new icons are added to your home screen and there are currently no options to configure the tweak. The tweak is available in the Cydia Store for $2.99.

Here’s a video demonstration of the tweak in action:
