The revamped notification system with iOS Notification Center is easily one of the best iOS 5 features.
The Notification Center finally allow us to keep track of notifications, while allowing us to view new notifications in the lock screen enables us to quickly respond to them.
However, one of the annoying things of displaying the notifications in the lock screen is that you have to either open the notification or unlock your iOS device to dismiss it. Apple ideally should have given us an option to dismiss the notification from the lock screen.
Thankfully a new jailbreak tweak called Ipsum has recently been released that allows you to dismiss the notification from the lock screen.
Once you have installed Ipsum from Cydia, instead of swiping to the right to open the notification, you need to swipe to the right and then swipe back to the left to dismiss the notification.
You can checkout the video below to see how it works:
Ipsum is available in Cydia for free.
As always, let us know what you think of the jailbreak tweak in the comments.
