    I didn't even noticed that the banner was doing that lol

    You gotta give the developer an "A" for even thinking about this

    Never in a million years would i have thought of this

    Great tweak! Installed. I hated when a notification would cover things up

    IOS 6 will feature this and make a big deal about it.. Sometimes I think the jb Dev's should sue apple as well for there work that latter became part of stock. Ideas like this is what Apple eventually implements latter and calls it there own.

    I haven't tried it, but I would hate it. I don't like anything that moves my screen while I am using it. I could be clicking a button or a web page link just as a notification comes through and now the button or link has moved and I end up clicking the wrong location on the screen.

    I love this tweak. I always hated when notifications would come in while I was navigating the settings app or reading through tweets in twitter. Whenever a notification would come in, it would mostly cover the "back" button in the top left of the screen. I can still tap the button but it's a small spot so if I miss, I accidentally tap the notification and then that app would open. Before this tweak I would quickly swipe down then up the notification center while the banner was on the screen and it would go away but then I wouldn't be able to read the banner lol. Now with this tweak, I can read the banner and still tap any buttons on the top of my screen.

    However, I have noticed one bug. When using Fullscreen for Safari, when a banner appears, at the bottom of safari a grey bar appears that is the about the same width as the status bar doubled. Even after the notification banner disappears the grey bar remains at the bottom of safari. The only way to get rid of it is to close safari then remove it from the task switcher and reopen safari. Pretty annoying. Hopefully a fix will arrive soon. Anyone else notice this?

    Edit: I learned that if I exit Fullscreen mode then re-enter Fullscreen mode, that grey bar disappears. If anyone else is experiencing this issue, this should solve it.

    Like it, but since iOS6 is coming out this fall, and I don't get too many notifications, I'll probably just wait for Apple to implement this.

    When I click the banner for quick reply bite sms it resprings into safe mode. I must have a tweak that is conflicting. Maybe StatusTweak? Anyone else experience this?

    This really slowed down my 3Gs big time. I like the tweak, but I'm not taking a big performance hit
