Alerto is a new way to interact with missed and incoming notifications on jailbroken devices

Newer iterations of iOS have placed additional emphasis on the Lock Screen’s user experience, bringing with it a complete redesign with new features that are intended to lend more user configurability. But other parts of the user interface have been neglected, with Notification Center being a prime example of that.

Here to help with that apparent neglect of other facets of the mobile experience is a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Alerto by iOS developer SouthernGirlWhoCode that reimagines the way we interface with missed and incoming notifications.

Above, we’ve embedded a demonstration video provided by the developer to help provide a sense of what Alerto looks like and how it works.

From what we can gather, Alerto is a notification hub that can be invoked separately of the stock Notification Center interface.

It groups your missed and incoming notifications by app to help you focus on one app at a time rather than seeing a jumbled overview of all your notifications at one time, which can sometimes feel slightly overwhelming.

Also to be expected from Alerto is the fact that you can customize the tweak’s aesthetics by colorizing the interface however you want from a dedicated preference pane.

Anyone who might be interested in giving Alerto a try can purchase the tweak for $3.50 from the developer’s Gumroad page. Once purchased, the tweak’s .deb file can be downloaded and then manually installed on your jailbroken device(s).

Please note that Alerto is designed only to be used with jailbroken iOS 14, 15, and 16 devices, including rootless jailbreaks such as Dopamine and palera1n.
