Apple introduced notification feature in iOS with a purpose to notify the user with basic information they need to know. A notification with large amount of text gets cropped and for more detailed information user has to click the notification. Many iPhone users consider this inability to read the full text a drawback and argue that clicking the notification causes to load the application, which takes time.
But why Apple doesn’t allow its users to view the full notification? Do you think Apple’s notification system has a limited height per notification in order to avoid a single notification filling up the screen? I do not foresee any technical hurdle in implementing the feature, since it has already been achieved by skilled developers of jailbreak community.
iOS developer Conrad Kramer and Joshua Tucker have created an awesome tweak Reveal that forces notification bar to allow you to scroll horizontally on banner notifications, and scroll vertically on bubble notifications to read them in full text.
Developers have posted a demo video which shows you how the Reveal notification tweak actually works. To read the full text of a banner notification, just scroll from right to left and for bubble, you need to scroll from up to down or tap to expand table cells. The tweak works well for all notifications that can be accessed from the iOS Lock screen or via banner notifications.
Reveal Tweak for iPad and iPhone has earned a lot of positive comments among the jailbreak community because of the wonderful functionality and convenience that it brings to your iOS homescreen. If this is the kind of tweak you’re interested, download Reveal, which available now in the Cydia Store under BigBoss repo for $1.99.
