One of the main reasons why people are inclined to jailbreak their device is to remove certain annoyances that come as default with the iOS. Probably one of the most common annoyances is the Low Battery notification of the iOS. It is rather obtrusive and can be especially annoying if you are playing a game or working with an app. The fact that you will still need to manually tap the Dismiss button in order to get rid of it doesn't make things any better. Today's featured jailbreak tweak looks to address such an annoyance.
It is safe to say that one of the best improvements on the iOS 5 is the banner style notifications. But it seems that Apple has somehow overlooked to apply the notification banner to the Low Battery warning. We understand Apple's stance on this one. The obtrusive notification is to ensure that the user is fully aware of their device's battery percentage and it forces them to take action. However for many people, this can be very annoying and brings your activity into a full halt. Fortunately, a new jailbreak tweak called LowPowerBanner by iOS developer snakeninny looks to remedy that.
What this tweak does is that it forces the iOS to use the unobtrusive notification banner when sending a low battery percentage warning. However, in order to ensure that it doesn't become too unnoticeable, the notification banner will also sound a chime whenever you are alerted. This way, you do not have to deal with the in-your-face approach of the old notification and do not have to pause whatever it is that you are currently doing. Much like the default notification, LowPowerBanner will also notify you at 20% and 10% battery percentage.
LowPowerBanner is available in Cydia under the BigBoss repo for FREE.
