If you ever thought of customizing the notifications on your iPhone or any other iOS 12 powered iDevice, then TinyBar is the best Cydia tweak for that purpose. Good news is you can install it now without jailbreaking iOS 12.
What is TinyBar?
TinyBar is very famous Cydia tweak with the aim of shrinking the size of notifications on your iPhone to the size of the top bar. It has been around in some form since at least the iOS 7 release back in 2014 (you’d think that iOS developers would make this an option for users without a tweak given its popularity over time).
Once you have installed TinyBar Cydia tweak, the notification banners will automatically get shrinked to status bar size, that will make room for other items on your homescreen.
Secondly, it will help you focus on more important items, especially when you are scrolling down and all of sudden the notification on iOS 12 takes up all the space.
Users have experimented with other tweaks like TinyBanners, PicoBar, Resero9 and Notifica to achieve the same effect but TinyBar seems to win out each time.
