Compose Adds Notification Center Shortcuts For New Mail And Message

If you like the idea of accessing things from the Notification Center then you will like Compose, a new jailbreak tweak.

Compose is a simple little jailbreak tweak that adds shortcuts to compose new mail and text message in Notification Center.

Like any other Notification Center tweak, after installing Compose from Cydia, you need to enable it via the Settings app (Settings -> Notifications -> Compose -> Notification Center -> tap on the On/Off toggle to turn it on).

Compose adds New Mail and New Message shortcuts to Notification Center, so you can quickly access them from anywhere in iOS to compose a new mail or text message. As you can see they look just like the native shortcuts for Facebook and Twitter.


If you’re fine with the idea of cluttering your Notification Center with widgets then Compose is a nifty little tweak  as it allows you to quickly start composing a new mail or text message without going through the hassle of exiting from your current app and launching the Mail or Messages app.

Compose is available for free on Cydia. It is compatible on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. If you’re on a jailbroken iOS device then tap on the download link below to install it from Cydia.

    I just installed this tweak, good stuff. Although,I had to restart the phone in order for it to appear. Once I did so, all was fine, thanks.

      Yeah strange, it worked fine without a restart on the iPad mini but needed a restart on the iPod touch 5G. But thanks for pointing it out, it will be useful for others.

    Best Part is that when you have Messages+ installed it opens up the Messages+ window shade.

      Can’t get it to work with Messages+. I would prefer if someone could do a tweak to remove the text from the widgets and just had the icons for Twitter, FB, Mail and SMS on one line as opposed to taking up space on my notification screen.

    Still can’t get the Message to work, the email compose works fine. When I tap on the message widget it drops the shade but doesn’t allow me to select a recipient or enter a message.

    They never showed up when i installed it, just the tweet one which was already there…

    I had to Respring, but it works perfectly now.

    Can’t find it on Cydia and the above link is dead too!

      Did you tap on the link on your jailbroken iOS device or on your computer? The link works fine on my jailbroken iPhone 5. It’s available on the ModMyi repo so you ideally shouldn’t have trouble finding it.

      The tweak was already available in cydia, yesterday. I install it straight from cydia yesterday, not the download link. Just retype in the name, it’s there.

    Its funny Compose shows up in Cydia on my Ipad Mini but not on my Iphone 5, did a refresh and still no go. The Modmyi repo is listed too but on Cydia bootup I see “Error: POSIX: Operation time….” maybe that has something to do with it!

    i have installed it. when you tap the new messgase option you don’t get the option to choose the contact. so i wander to whom i send the message? also i don’t have the facebook option and twitter (don’t use twitter).
