One of the major new features introduced in iOS 7 is Control Center which provides a quick access to toggles and other controls. It can be accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. Centered is a new cydia tweak that changes this functionality and allows you to access the Control Center directly from Notification Center. With the iOS 8 announcement tomorrow, this looks like it could be a useful tweak once the iOS 8 jailbreak is released.
The cydia tweak adds a new tab to Notification Center called ‘CC’ where you can view all the controls and sections of Control Center providing a unified view along with notifications. The cydia tweak moves all the toggles and controls previously accessible via the original Control Center to the ‘CC’ tab in Notification Center. The tab will be placed right next right to the ‘Missed’ tab.
After you install the tweak, the swipe up gesture will no longer work. No matter how much you swipe up from the bottom of the screen, nothing will happen. But, this also means that you can assign other tweaks to take its place.
After installing Centered, the cydia app will be enabled by default and you’ll notice a new Control Center tab in Notification Center. To configure it, you can access the cydia tweaks preferences pane from the stock Settings app. Here, you’ll find a toggle that allows you to enable or disable it and you can also rename the tab via the ‘Custom section name’ text box.
You can also switch between the dark and bright background by toggling the ‘Brighten Background’ option. If enabled, the Control Center background will have a bright blur.
Lastly, you’ll find a button at the bottom of the tweak’s preferences pane called ‘Tap to install CCLoader’. Press it will install CCLoader, a tweak that allows you to organize as well as enable or disable sections of the Control Center.
Centered is quite a useful cydia tweak to view all your notifications as well as Control Center toggles in one place. You can purchase it from Cydia for $1.15 and it is compatible with iOS 7 devices only.
