Emblem brings OS X inspired notifications to the iPad

Today at WWJC, Joshua Tucker revealed a new tweak that he created in collaboration with fellow developer, Kyle Howells. The tweak — Emblem — is an iPad exclusive that brings OS X inspired notifications to iOS.

Emblem features smooth animations, and swipe to dismiss among other things. Take a look inside as we give you a sneak peak of Emblem via our video walkthrough…

From the developer description:

Emblem brings OS X-inspired notifications to the iPad. With gorgeous animations and native design, Emblem provides a whole new notification experience.

The premier feature of Emblem, in my opinion, is the way it groups sets of four or more consecutive push notifications. This allows you to scroll horizontally on the notification to read each incoming message. Even with a grouped set of notifications, you can still swipe to dismiss, or tap to launch the app corresponding to the notification.

Oddly enough, that’s probably not even the most impressive part about Emblem; that honor goes to the interactive tutorial, which uses a Siri like voice to guide you through each of the tweak’s features. You can access the interactive tutorial by assigning an Activator action to the Emblem tutorial.

It’s obvious that Joshua and Kyle have been saving this tweak for a big stage like JailbreakCon, and it doesn’t disappoint. Emblem should be available in the near future on Cydia for the price of $1.99. What do you think?
