DietBulletin basically shrinks the popup notifications to the size of the status bar. However it doesn't seem to be working with ios7.

Does anyone know a similar tweak that does work?

Ahh thanks for posting that doc. Now we can keep up with what he's doing in a weird stalker type way lol

I can't wait for diet bulletin to get updated. I can't stand these huge black bars for bulletins, would much rather them stay in the status bar.

Me too. I'm equally as excited for Dietbar too. I love these two tweaks. Simple yet very effective.

I actually installed dietbar because I saw someone on reddit say that it worked and it does work for pretty much everything I have installed on my phone. Same as emphasize, even though it says it's not updated for iOS 7, it still works for iOS 7.0.4. The graphite setting on emphasize looks really good. I want LESS color lol

Really? Strange. I installed dietbar earlier today but didn't have any luck. The only thing that looked to be working was the main twitter app. But even that didn't look as good as iOS 6.

I saw on the dev's google doc tracking log that DietBar is queued for an update. He's just not working on it yet. Hopefully soon though cause it doesn't work for me. I'll have to give it another shot though if it woes for you.

What device are you using? I'm on a 5s. Maybe that's why.

Yeah you being on a 5s probably has a lot to do with it not working, seems like the 5s is having quite a few issues with a lot of tweaks. I am on the 5 and it's working pretty flawlessly.

I didn't use dietbar in iOS 6 because I didn't like the way it looked with the buttons, but now that there's only text there's no need for such huge navigation bars.

I've been using DietBar on my 5s for a couple hours now and it's been working pretty good. Maybe you can try it again to see if its working for you?

Since this was bumped I just want to say since I previously responded I upgraded to a 5s and dietbar and emphasize no longer work on my 5s =(

Use tinybar. It does exactly the same as dietbulletin. It's working really well for me.

Tiny Bar... And the dev puts up a lot of improvements even though it's a free tweak...

Dietbar runs well on my 7.0.4 4S... No glitches...

tried DietBar and it doesn't shrink neither game center nor messages.

Tinybar doesnt fix game center but at least works for messages.

I'm on a 5s and DietBar does not work. The dev said he will update eventually but probably not in a huge rush. I like this tweak. I hope it gets updated.
