I'm a huge fan of the Notes app. It's probably the one app I use more than anything else on an iOS device. The only problem is, it may not be accessible when I need it. If I'm in the middle of something and need to make a note, I have to back out of the current app to do so. Luckily, NCNotes takes care of this problem. This new Cydia tweak adds a Notes widget to Notification Center. Along with that, you'll have the ability to share your notes and save them to the stock Notes app. While this kind of tweak isn't new, it's the first one that I've seen for iOS 7. The only feature this tweak lacks is the ability to specify which account you'd like to use when saving a note. Once installed, the widget will be placed in the "All" section of Notification Center. Within the Settings app, you have the ability to customize the widget's color, font size, and font color. The only complaint I have is that NCNotes doesn't necessarily fit in with the design of Notification Center. I would prefer a native design that didn't stick out as much. Aside from my minor design complaint, it's a perfect note widget for Notification Center in iOS 7. If you'd like to check out NCNotes for yourself, it's available for $0.99 in the MacCiti repository.
