Dismiss Away Items is a mod that allows you to dismiss alerts by tapping the Home Button. Once installed, you are able to dismiss the pop-ups for missed SMS alerts, missed call alerts, missed voicemail alerts…etc…just by tapping your Home Button. In the app description it says that this works on the lockscreen (which it does) however, it also works if you are on your SpringBoard or in an application. The nice thing about this mod is that it still displays a missed alert badge even though you have dismissed the pop-up (ex. still leaves a badge number on your SMS icon or Phone icon).
If you are not currently using an application, like IntelliScreen, to block your alert pop-ups this might be a mod for you. I personally do not use an alert blocker (unlike Doug who uses IntelliScreen) so, this mod works great for me…I can read the alert and then dismiss it without having to go off my lockscreen.
The only thing that worries me about this mod is that it might interfere with other Home Button applications. I currently do not have any others installed but, let us know in the comments if you have an issue with it interfering with any of your other Home Button mods or apps.
Dismiss Away Items is available through the david.ashman.com source.
Note: This mod is not activated/deactived via WinterBoard. Once installed, it automatically starts working. You have to uninstall the app to remove it.
