Give Notification Center a makeover with betterNC10

If you’re looking for a new look and feel for Notification Center, then check out a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed betterNC10 by CydiaGeek.

This tweak lets you change up the aesthetics of Notification Center as well as change the way certain functions behave. The bevy of options that are baked into betterNC10 can reduce the time you spend clearing notifications and remove unwanted clutter among other things.

After installation, betterNC10 puts a preferences pane in the Settings app where you can configure your options how you see fit:

Among the options you can change are:

  • Single-tap on the clear button to remove a notification from Notification Center
  • Force the date in the Today page to take up just one line instead of two
  • Hide all text from the Today page in Notification Center
  • Hide date and time labels from your notifications’ title labels
  • Choose a background style for both pages of Notification Center
    • Dark
    • Clear
    • Grey
    • No blur
  • Disable the drag-down gesture from the Status Bar for invoking Notification Center
  • Keep the display off when you get a notification, but sounds and vibrations still occur
  • Hide the Today view from Notification Center on the Lock screen

A respring button is included at the bottom of the preferences pane for saving your options after making changes to the Settings.

It is worth noting that some of these options can also be found in Springtomize 4, such as hiding the Today page and customizing the Notification Center background. On the other hand, betterNC10 also comes with numerous options that Springtomize 4 doesn’t have, so it may be worth checking out either way.

If you’re interested in trying it out for yourself, betterNC10 can be downloaded for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. The tweak works on all jailbroken iOS 8, 9, and 10 devices.
