SleekNotifications Makes Notification Banners More Compact In iOS 10

Those who have jailbroken device can make notification banners more compact in iOS 10 with new Cydia release. Banners were originally introduced with iOS 7 and were aimed to keep notifications out the way, but Apple eventually made them taller, causing them to get in the way of more of what you’re doing.

A new jailbreak tweak dubbed as SleekNotifications by Rishanan will help you to quell the misery in this department, as it shrinks down the size of your notification banners so they take up less vertical space on your screen.


At the screenshot above you can see that the name of the app is removed from the top of the banner to reduce its size, since the app icon is self-explanatory enough as to where the notification is coming from.

With SleekNotifications installed you get a cleaner look and feel throughout iOS as it also impacts notifications in Notification Center and on the Lock screen:


The tweak's effects even impact the widgets in the Today page, shaving unnecessary pixels off of them as well:

The tweak supports only jailbroken iOS 10 devices. SleekNotifications tweak doesn’t offer any options to configure, so once it is installed the effects are seen right away.

It should be noted that the developer behind the tweak notes that SleekNotifications also works with such jailbreak tweaks as Noctis, CleanNotifications10, and ColorBanners 2. So you have many options to customize the look and feel of notification banners that appears n your device.

In conclusion I can say that the most appealing thing about SleekNotifications tweak is that there’s not much work required to get up and running. So if you want to give the notifications and widgets an extremely minimal look you should take the tweak for a spin.

The Clock app on iOS device allows you to view the time in different cities/timezones.

But new jailbreak tweak dubbed as Temporal aims to fix this issue.

New Cydia Tweak Makes 3D Touch Menus Look Like Android Nougat

If you want to make 3D Touch menus look like Android Nougat on your iPhone then you should definitely try NougatShortcuts tweak. When you 3D Touch on an app icon on the Home screen, a menu is displayed with a semi-transparent background along with shortcuts available for the app. NougatShortcuts brings an aesthetic change to 3D Touch menus making them look more like Android Nougat.

How To Make iPhone 3D Touch Menus Look Like Android Nougat


NougatShortcuts tweak breaks the 3D Touch menu options into separate items, replaces the transparent background with a solid color and applies rounded corners to each of the menu items. 

So if you want to try such effects on your device then go to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and search for NougatShortcuts. The tweak is available as a free download package. Once installed the tweak will add a dedicated preferences pane to Settings app. Here, you'll find a toggle switch for turning the tweak on or off on demand, along with options for customizing the style and the corner radius of your 3D Touch menu items. The higher percentage of corner radius you set, the rounder the menu items will look in the long run.

NougatShortcuts works fine with tweaks that bring 3D Touch support to older iPhone model. So if you don't have device that supports 3D touch feature then you can use Peek-a-Boo and Forcy that simulate this gesture to setup NougatShortcuts effects on older iPhone models.

NougatShortcuts tweak makes 3D Touch menus look like Android Nougat. So if you prefer this tweak’s design over the default appearance of 3D Touch menus, then you can download NougatShortcuts from Cydia. One downside is that the tweak only works on iOS 9 devices, so those who jailbroken on iOS 10 are out of luck.

The Way To Check How Much Storage Space Is Being Used By Apps Within Folders

If you want to know how much storage space is being used by apps within folders on your Home screen in iOS 10 then new Cydia tweak called FolderUsage will do it for you. Normally you have to manually go to the Settings-General-Storage to see the usage taken by the apps. But you are lucky if you’re device is jailbroken, as you can use FolderUsage tweak to check the info within the folder it one tap.

FolderUsage can be downloaded from Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 8, 9 and 10 devices. The tweak starts to work immediately after installation. So all you have to do to check how much storage space is being used by apps within folder on your iPhone's Home screen is to use a simple swipe-up gesture on any of your folder icons. You'll see a pop-up message that will show the storage space being occupied by all of the apps contained within the particular folder.


FolderUsage tweak allows you to see a report of how much space a specific group of apps is using on your jailbroken iPhone. This works differently from the storage space usage page in the Settings app, which only breaks things down on a per-app basis, rather than a per-folder basis.

The tweak can be useful when you’re trying to keep track of how much storage space you’re dedicating to certain app archetypes. Let's take games as the example. Since many iPhone users tend to put all of their games into folders. In such case FolderUsage will help to keep track of how much space is being used for games alone.

FolderUsage is really simple tweak with no configurations but if you want to quickly check how much storage space is being used by app within folder on iPhone then this tweak will come in handy.

Once the tweak is installed you will notice a new app icon that will appear on your Home screen. There you will find all the configuration options that are divided into groups to make finding them easier:



The tweak also offers another interesting feature. While there are multiple tweaks available on Cydia that are paid and more than capable of altering how a Home screen appears, including the app icon size, what makes ReformX so useful is its ability to save presets of how a device is configured. 

In conclusion I can say that with ReformX tweak you can not only customize Home screen layout in iOS 10 but it is also possible to change the Home screen by resizing the dock, increase the size of the dock icon as well as change the icon size.

So if you are jailbroken with Yalu iOS 10 jailbreak then ClearBadges3DTouch10 is the great tweak to 3D Touch clear app icons badges on iPhone without spending any money.
