So coming from android, I REALLY love the notification light and the notification icons up on the status bar at the top. Obviously iphones don't have the notification light but I'm wondering if there's a tweak that can allow texts/missed calls/etc to show icons up at the top of the screen? I'm currently on ios 7 if that matters.

Yes there is! Check out OpenNotifier on Cydia. :)

Is it from the default cydia repo or the Tateu one? I've tried the tateu one (beta) and it doesn't seem to work. No icons show up at the top. Maybe only certain apps provide notification icons?

Edit: Nevermind, it does work, just have to manually assign an icon for each app you want to show notifications for. Thanks!

Good to hear you got it working. How are you liking the move from Android to iOS so far?

There is a new icon pack too that let's you know how many notifications you have in an app.

Haha sorry to disappoint but it doesn't quite fully satisfy the status notification criteria I wanted on a phone (among other things). But I am using it on my ipad so that's fine. Unfortunately I don't think apple has quite won me over from the note this time. Considering how vast the appstore is you'd think there's a contender to android's mxplayer app. I'd go into detail but we've all heard the arguments a million times. Come on iphone 7 in two years!
