Terrific new tweak brings one of iOS 8’s best features to iOS 7

iOS 8 Notification Center Jailbreak

Do you want to try out the awesome new iOS 8 interactive notification center without upgrading your phone to the iOS 8 beta? Well you’re in luck: Cult of Mac flags a terrific new jailbreak tweak that will bring the new interactive notification center to iOS 7.

For those of you who don’t recall, the iOS 8 notifications center lets you more easily access your messages and respond directly from notifications. This doesn’t just apply to emails either: You can also reply to invitations and even “like” Facebook statuses directly from the notifications center. iOS 8 also allows developers to create widgets that will pop up in your notifications center as updates if you give them permission to do so when you download new apps.

Now a jailbreak tweak called Notific8 that’s available on Cydia will let you bring this feature to your iPhone right now as long as you’ve jailbroken it and are running iOS 7 or higher. Cult of Mac notes that “with the release of the Pangu iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, it’s once again easy to jailbreak your iOS device,” so it looks like trying this feature out will be pretty straightforward if you’re not willing to wait until September when iOS 8 comes out alongside the iPhone 6.
