New day, new tweak available in Cydia. Velox brings a new way to interact with your iOS device’s apps to view notifications and more. With a single swipe up or down on an app you will invoke a folder containing new notifications pertaining to the app right on your home screen. Within the folder tap to view the notification, swipe to the left to dismiss that notification or pull down and you clear them all.
Velox goes a step further with some native apps:
- Swipe up or down, tap on “Compose new message” and you can send a “quick message”.
- You can also reply to a message you received, right from the springboard.
- Invoke Velox, see all your unread mail in a folder. Swipe left to dismiss that email but with a swipe to the right send a “quick reply” or tap compose new to send off a new email to tell your friends how awesome Velox is.
- Do “the Velox swipe”, and you can post the last photo saved on Twitter or Facebook, send it in an eMail or copy it the clipboard to for example send via an iMessage
- Velox swipe, and you can write a new note on your home screen.
- See a list of missed calls and text or call them right back from the folder.
- Have a quick look at your upcoming events, tap on an event to see the details for that event.
