Notified Pro Thread
long time LockInfo user here and after using it for a while i have realized that it may be time for a change..
i do like the look of Notified Pro but the support/updates are slow. i know that this is a little side project but hopefully we can have some members here help with any issues/problems that may arise
i just downloaded v1.99.5-3 (beta) today and it crashes every time i try to use a swipe gesture, anyone else? [iPhone 4 4.3.3]

same here. long time lockinfo users, possibly ready for a change. The NP beta installs but nothing else happens/works. (iphone 4 4.3.3 j/b sn0wbreeze) pull down works but no notification goes thru NP app. NO mail/email, messages/txt, kik, liveprofile. N O T H I N G!!!! non-beta version i get to work but even the mail beta separated installed; screws up my Mail/email 'push'.

well i am not sure if v1.99.5-3 is a recent update.. last week when i was playing around with Notified Pro it was working fine, i was just having a difficult time finding the right configuration
the Notification Bar for Notified feature looks pretty sweet but i couldn't get it to work
GriP for Notified Pro, i feel, gets away from the iOS look
for anyone on 4.3.3 that might be having the sudden safe mode issue try this, it appears it has worked for me:
*remove the beta
*search for Notified Pro in Cydia and download the non-beta version
*now add the beta repoCode:
Edit: i should add that i was only downloading the beta version and never had the non beta installed originally
so far no crashing and all seems to be working well. i will update this thread later regarding any issues, if any at all

biteSMS workaround with Notified Pro (beta)
after tweaking with the beta Notified and the Notification Bar for Notified 1.6 i figured this out..
i'm sure someone out there already knows about this or has seen it somewhere so i apologize in advance
BiteSMS > Settings > Lock Screen Mode > Show Apple Alert
BiteSMS > Settings > Unlock Screen Mode > Show Apple Alert
Notified Settings > Manage Redirections
Tap '+' to add a redirection
From: Messages > To: biteSMS > Done
so far from what i have noticed when replying from the Notification Bar for Notified 1.6 it will take you directly into that SMS conversation within the bite app
when selecting the SMS from the list of notifications it will take you to the list of SMS conversations in the bite app
EDIT: just noticed that the SMS tone, and vibrate if selected, are doubled up haha not cool

with Notified, as you may already know, there is only 1 icon that is displayed on the statusbar. however, with the addition of Notification Bar for Notified 1.6 it will display the notification right underneath the statusbar; a preview if you will. at this point you have the option to view the message in the list of saved notifications by a gesture, deleting the preview or actually going into the app itself
what really draws me into this app is the clean look it has, it looks and feels like the native OS. which is perfect for anyone who is concerned with that. there are some 3rd party plugins for Notified but what i have seen & used they go away from that native look, but i am still playing with this so i cannot say for sure
regrading emails; as of now i do not believe there are any plugins that play nice with the beta version (anyone?) this does not really concern me since i am constantly checking my my phone for one thing or another anyways
for the Calendar i use RemindMeLater and have it ignored within the Notified settings. very-very useful tweak!
dont get me wrong LockInfo is great but as of late i have been been looking for something different and Notified, so far, is the next best thing imo. my advice for any LockInfo users wanting to give this a try would be patient. it is a different style/method but not "in your face" as LI would be but after you get used to it it is pretty convenient and has great potential
the way i understand it there are 2 devs that work on this in their spare time. it is a work in progress and the same goes for me getting used to it and finding the best way it works, for me
lastly, my battery life has greatly improved since not reloading LI onto my device after my most recent restore. i am not saying that LockInfo is a battery killer but the way i had mine setup while using LI compared to my setup with Notified are like day & night
..it is odd not using LockInfo but i am starting like Notified

well it looks like trying to stick with the native SMS is more painful than i imagined and i depend on bite a lot so..

I'm glad you got it working! I realized too late that the beta is an update, not a full app, so you have to have the original installed first haha.
Just out of curiosity, why do you still use bitesms? I found that the quick reply was my only reason to use bitesms, and since I eliminated all popups except extreme weather, I all of a sudden found it annoying haha. What other benefits does it have? I admit I didn't really delve into it hahah, and I'm wondering if I'm missing out on something haha!

For those considering using Notified Pro, here are some pictures of the beta (which is a HUGE improvement on the regular app) to help (as the official website is very vague):
The "!" in the statusbar is the notification icon for everything but mail. Mail gets you a little envelope icon. The notification banner at the top is the beta notification bar thing that's also in the beta repo. It slides down, an holding dismisses it and double tapping opens it. It works for every app, which is a huge improvement over LI imho. I have activator set to let me open Notified by dragging down from the statusbar, a la Android. The second image is what that looks like. This is the equivalent to InfoShade in LI. Overall the UI is gorgeous and very professional- it looks like it belongs in iOS. I pretty much JB for this haha
i have found that my main need for bitesms is the quick compose feature. i am still giving the native SMS a go with this.. it is taking some getting used to haha!
how are you getting the mail icon on your statusbar? what are you using?

I use bitesms for the quick reply. I love being able to respond to a text without having to close the app.
As for notifier I am still adapting. I just downloaded the beta last night. I use LI for the calendar info. I love being able to see my calendar from wherever I am. So I don't know if notifier will be a replacement for LI for me, but will maybe work in conjunction with it.

no mail icon in status bar for me either Blink. i've finally got this beta version to work via your instructions though, woohoo! LOL... Going to try OpenNotifier now and see if mail notification shows up in status bar.

glad you got it working! yes the mail icon is in OpenNotifier, works great. what i am confused about is there are other statusbar icons available for OpenNotifier e.g. Words with Friends, Whatsapp and Scorecenter that i was hoping would work when getting a notification instead of the "!" in hopes to make the notifications more specific but no dice
