The Notification Center in iOS 8 has been revamped to include widgets but it’s still a space where Cydia tweaks can do a lot of customization. Tweaks specifically built for Notification Center are slowly cropping up as devs update or create new tweaks for the purpose.
While widgets are a great way to spice up the Notification Center (in terms of functionality), there’s a lot more you can do with these elements. Here’s a bunch of Cydia tweaks that will modify, add, remove or customize your Notification Center:
Best iOS8 Notification Center Cydia Tweaks:
#1. Notification Killer
Notification Center helps you in being informed of all the latest updates. However, if you don’t tidy it from time to time, it gets cluttered with hundreds of notifications. And then, you have no other alternative but to spend some quality time in removing them individually. Such a lengthy workaround! But no more.
Notification Killer for iOS 8 lets you remove all the notifications at once. Just tap on Today/Notification to clear them all at one go. The jailbreak tweak is also compatible with iOS 7. To clear all notifications in iOS 7, tap on Today/All/.

NCFold is a tweak that minimizes clutter in the Notification Center. What it does is simple: it clubs all notifications for every app and lists them in a collapsible way. You can preview multi-line notification messages by tapping on the app name. This is quite interesting because you can make the notification center simpler and more efficient.

NCSingleTapClear is a small but very cool tweak for your Notification Center. Instead of clicking twice on the ‘x’ to delete all notification messages under an app, the tweak lets you tap on it just once. And voila. All messages are cleared instantly.

HideMe8 is all about hiding notification messages, status bar and much more. If you do not want to see messages on Notification Center you can hide them by disabling notification message on HideMe8’s settings. In the same way you can remove icons of Control Center, Status Bar, Lockscreen and Springboard. The tweak is paid although there’s a ‘lite’ version (HideMe8 Lite) that you can try.

noNCheader is a tweak that removes the headers of widgets from the Notification Center. It is useful if you want to see the Notification Center without the title of the individual widgets. Generally, it’s better to have the header of widgets visible so that users know what widgets they are to use. It may not be helpful if you are a new user. But, in the rare cases that you want to make things extremely minimal on the NC, here’s a tweak that can help you do it.

This tweak boasts of lots of other useful features such as Home button, quick links, quick search, full screen mode, lock screen support, smooth animations, color customizations, back/forward button.
