NCQuickDismiss: Quickly Dismiss Notification Center Banners In iOS 5 [Cydia Tweak] Share
PDF Print E-mail

Let’s face it, the revamped notifications and the new Notification Center are some of the best things that ever happened to iOS since multi-tasking. If you – like a a lot of other iOS 5 users – find that the notification banners take too much time to fade away and are wishing to just hit a close button or something so you can get back to your movie, game or browser quickly, you are in luck (that is, if your device is jailbroken on iOS 5). NCQuickDismiss is a Cydia tweak that will let you quickly dismiss the notification banner and the Notification Center without the need for swiping it back up.

The tweak simply adds a small cross (close) button at the right side of the notification banner and the bottom-right corner of the Notification Center. Hit that button and the notification/ Notification Center recedes instantly.


You can install this tweak by looking for it within the BigBoss repository in the Sources section. Alternatively, you may search for NCQuickDismiss from within Cydia’s Search section. After the installation, you may be asked to restart the Springboard, so make sure you do that. You will not find any settings for this tweak; all that it does is in place after you restart the Springboard.
