Dismiss Away Items Update & New Quick Dimiss Application

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Quick Dimiss Yesterday there was an update to Dismiss Away Items, a application that allows you to dismiss alerts pop-ups by tapping the Home Button. The update changed the app so that it only works for dismissing alert pop-ups on your lock screen (instead of on your lock screen, SpringBoard and while in an application). However, the developer also released an additional application titled Quick Dismiss. When installed, it allows you to dismiss alert pop-ups using the Home Button while on your SpringBoard and while in applications. So basically, the developer turned Dismiss Away Items into two applications.

However, the first release of Quick Dismiss did not work so, I patiently waited for an update which came out this afternoon and the application now works correctly. Make sure you have version 1.1.0 of Quick Dismiss.

Dismiss Away Items – Dismiss Alert Pop-ups

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Dismiss Away Items 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.

IntelliScreen 2.2

Available In: cydia       Price: $4.99 – $49.99  

intelliscreen There is an update to IntelliScreen 2.2, a lock screen enhancing application, in Cydia today. Below is a complete list of changes, bug fixes and known problems. One things that I did find interesting is that the update is said to make IntelliScreen compatible with firmware 2.1 however, Doug and I have both been using IntelliScreen on our 2.1 for a while now and it seemed to work fine. So, I’m not sure what the deal is with that.

One cool new feature includes a new vibration alert that will vibrate with; Mail=2 fast beeps, SMS=2 slow beeps, Call/VM=3 beeps, Calendar=4 beeps. Another cool new feature is that after you make your changes in IntelliScreen, it no longer resprings the SpringBoard. After you make the change and select Apply, the app just closes. It is kind of weird at first because you expect it to respring but I definitly like it!! They also say that that overall InteillScreen is [Read more…]

SMSNotify 2.0

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

#SMSNotify SMSNotify is an application that will allow your iPhone to vibrate when you have a missed text message or a new voicemail. This is actually not a new application, it is also available via Installer for firmware 1.1.4 and below. However, the app has changed slightly. In SMSNotify 2.0, if you have a missed text, your iPhone will vibrate three times and if you have a new voicemail, your iPhone will vibrate two times. However, this only works if your iPhone is in sleep mode (or lock mode). If your iPhone is plugged in or not in sleep mode, the app will not make your iPhone vibrate. ‘

As cool as this application is… [Read more…]
