Over the past weeks, the jailbreak community is treated to numerous promising Cydia tweaks. Several days ago, we have featured a jailbreak tweak called Velox, which showcased loads of potential. The jailbreak tweak we have for you today is called Abstergo.
Abstergo was developed by Andrew Richardson and Joshua Tucker with the goal of changing the way users manage notifications within the iOS. One of the basic features of the Abstergo tweak is the ability to clear all your notifications quickly. When you swipe down your notification list, a Clear All option will appear, which will clear all your notifications when swiped. In just two swipes, you get to clear all your notifications. Abstergo mainly means to wipe off or clean away in Latin, which is an appropriate name for the tweak.
However, there are other features of Abstergo that makes it a must-have tweak. In case you want to be reminded with a certain item from your notifications, like replying to a certain tweet or message in Facebook, you can use Abstergo to make things easier for you. You need to tap and hold the notification and you'll be presented with reminder options. You can either set the reminder in 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day and a specific day. This is also works with Notification pop-ups as well. Tap and hold the notification once it pops up. Notification items with reminders in them will display a small clock icon. Tapping the icon will enable you to Remove the item from the Lockscreen, Edit or Clear the reminder.
Abstergo tweak doesn't just work with notifications. You can also use the tweak to remind you about a specific SMS or iMessage text. This also works in a similar fashion with your notifications. Simply tap and hold down a particular message and you should see a Reminder option. You can then set a certain time for the reminder. This is extremely useful for messages that you can't attend to for the time being. This also serves as huge time save because you don't have to launch the Reminder app. To demonstrate the tweak better, here's a video demo and review from the folks of iPhoneHacks:
The Abstergo tweak is definitely one that you keep an eye on. Aside from its awesome features, it feels like it's flawlessly integrated within the iOS and doesn't feel like an add-on. Abstergo tweak will be available in Cydia on April 21st for the reasonable price of $1.99. We'll let you know once it lands in Cydia.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
