We love looking at and telling you about new concepts for a better iOS experience. Today, there’s another new iOS 7 concept, which imagines a Notification Center with actions.
Apple introduced the Notification Center in iOS 5 and it has been improved in iOS 6, but if you want more out of your Notification Center, you’ll have to jailbreak your iOS device. There are plenty of tweaks that improve the Notification Center, adding shortcuts and actions for plenty of iOS functions. This new concept posted by a user in the MacRumors forum, shows actions in the Notification Center.
This concept adds an action bar to all the notifications that appear in the Notification Center. The bar can be viewed by swiping left, which reveals important actions for every notification. In the case of a missed call, you can swipe left to view actions such as ‘Send Message’, ‘Call’ or ‘Set a Reminder (to call back)’. The actions will be different for different notifications. For example, swiping left on an Email notification will show actions such as ‘Reply’, ‘Delete’ or ‘Mark as Read’ etc. Third party app developers can add this functionality to their apps too.
You can easily take care of those notifications without having to open relevant apps. As of now, when you get a notification, you can’t really do much with it, so this concept is something Apple should really consider in iOS 7. Even Android’s notification system doesn’t allow for such a thing. Watch the video of the concept below:
Apple should really start looking at some of these concepts and add them to iOS 7, because honestly a lot of people want more functionality in iOS. Not everyone jailbreaks their iOS device. Okay, now somebody please release a Cydia tweak using this idea. Thank you.
