Last week, Joshua Tucker – iOS jailbreak developer released a new jailbreak tweak called Emblem at the WorldWide Jailbreak Convention (WWJC).

The jailbreak brings the OS X-style banner notifications to the iPad.

After installing the jailbreak tweak, the notifications will show up in the top-right corner of the iPad’s screen similar to the way notifications show up on the Mac.

You can tap, hold and swipe to the right on the notification to dismiss them or tap on a notification to launch the appropriate app.

If you get multiple banner notifications from the same app, the jailbreak tweak will first display the notifications separately, one below the other, and then stack them together. You can then swipe through this stack of notifications to view each notification or tap, hold and swipe to the right to dismiss all the notifications in one-go. It’s a pretty cool feature.

You can check ou the demo of Emblem in the action below:

It’s a pretty cool tweak. It is available on Cydia for $1.99. Joshua has developed other popular jailbreak tweaks such as CallBar, Reveal and recently released Scale – a tweak that allows you to easily share “Now Playing” song with your friends from the Music app.
