Notifier: Puts Notifications to iPhone Status Bar

Share:

Every time I take a screenshot to review an iPhone App or to broadcast my iPhone’s homescreen on the blog, I always get questions about the little icons I have in my iPhone’s status bar.

You might have seen them too, and been wondering where they are from. The tweak is called Notifier and it’s available via Cydia (requires a jailbroken iPhone). Notifier will put tiny icons into the iPhone’s status bar to indicate when you have:

  • New email
  • A new chat message (ie via IM+ in my case)
  • Missed a call + have new voicemail
  • Missed a text message

Once you check up the tasks above the icons will disappear. Notifier has been available for a while now, and for those who don’t have it installed it’s a “must have” jailbroken app in my mind (along with SBSettings and 3G Unrestrictor). Are you using Notifier? How do you like it?

    I think the features of Status Notifier Plus should exist by default on the iPhone (as well as an option for the weather in status bar mod).

    It's a device designed for connectivity to other things, you should have notifications no matter were you are (aside from full screen games and whatnot) about what you've received, and have yet to address, on your phone.

    That being said, thank god we can jailbreak and include what Apple has not.

    PS: It's great to get a blog post on it!

    Using it and loving it! Along with SB settings and 3G unrestrictor…..well see this month if using skype for my main calls is going to save me money.
    ANY ONE ELSE GET THE PROBLEM OF YOUR CELL SERVICE STILL CUTTING OUT?
    MINE IS NOW CUTTING OUT USING SKYPE TO MAKE CALLS……IE: 3G SHUTS DOWN….
    ANY SUGGESTIONS OR HELP?
