‘Carpe Diem’ brings Notification Center widgets to Reachability view

Carpe Diem Settings

It seems like more and more tweaks are beginning to take advantage of the available real estate present when invoking Reachability. Case in point: Carpe Diem—a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to place iOS Today View widgets directly in the space that becomes available when using Reachability.

After installing Carpe Diem, you’ll need to head over to the stock Settings app to find the tweak’s preferences. There, you’ll find a list of all of the available Notification Center widgets, both first and third-party. You can then select a single widget to add to the Reachability view.

Most of the widgets that I tested played nice with Carpe Diem, but a few, most notably the ESPN widget, didn’t want to work. The developer of Carpe Diem touts the compatibility with first, third-party, and WeeLoader extensions, but clearly the tweak still has some room to grow in this area.

That all being said, Carpe Diem is a welcomed jailbreak tweak, and a legitimate way to get more out of Reachability. If you have a widget that you’re always looking to view, then Carpe Diem can make it easier to stay in tune with what’s going on in your widget of choice.

You can find Carpe Diem for $0.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. What do you think?
