iOS 5 Notification Center widgets has been Cracked

Designers have already starting improving the look of the new Notification Center in iOS 5.

Well, that didn’t take too long. The jailbreak community is obviously pleased with the new Notification Center in iOS 5 and its ability to run little web programs called widgets. Apple ships two-built in widgets, Weather and Stocks, that can be configured in Settings > Notifications and a recent proof-of-concept has taught us that developing widgets for the notification screen is technically feasible, even with the latest software development kit not officially endorsing widgets. Instead of waiting, developers of unsanctioned apps have cracked widgets for Notification Center, although you’ll need a jailbroken iOS 5 device to run them. Here is a couple of nice widgets for your consideration…
Jay Moon has created a simple and clean design that really makes the notifications and widgets pop.


Jeff Broderick has a light design inspired by Lion Launchpad.


Gildedsplinter has a design that improves the overall look of the current one.


Thankfully jailbreakers will be able to customize the look and feel of their Notifications center with new themes and widgets. Hopefully, Apple realizes a bit more work on the look of Notification Center might be good idea before release.
