notific8-0

You still have to wait a couple more months until you get your hands on iOS 8 but, for now, you can get a taste of iOS 8 thanks to Notific8. The tweak is available right now in Cydia via BigBoss repo ( free ) and makes the iOS 7 Notification Center look like iOS 8 – or at least the NC version currently available in iOS 8 beta 2. The developer plans to update the tweak to include any changes that NC might gain in future iOS 8 beta releases.

Features:

  • gets rid of the missed notifications tab
  • the title of the “All” tab is now “Notifications”
  • section headers have a background color
  • new edit button for quick access to notification center settings
  • new style attribution widget
  • option to hide the attribution text
