    Some applications in the iOS App Store are relatively large in size, and we don't have the time to just stare at the little loading progress indicator on the application icon on the Home Screen while it's installing. At the same time though, we want to know how the progress is looking and want to know when the install finishes. With that being said, it's a shame that iOS doesn't notify you when your downloads are done.

    Here to fix this issue is a new free jailbreak tweak called AppNoti by iOS developers Ben Rosen and CP Digital Darkroom.

    As shown above, this tweak will display a notification banner when an application that you were installing has finished installing. It doesn't matter if you were in an application or on the Home Screen when the installation completes, because the tweak uses iOS' native notification system to alert you when the download completes, and the banner will be displayed regardless.

    AppNoti is a free download from Cydia's BigBoss repository as of Monday evening, and it's compatible with both iOS 7 and iOS 8 devices. The developers have even made the project open source, so you're free to check out the tweak's source code at this GitHub link. Check it out!
