    If you find yourself taking notes often, then you might be able to make use of a tweak that will let you easily bring up a piece of virtual paper and start typing information as you hear it.

    A new Notification Center widget for iOS 7 dubbed NCNotes by iOS developer Anthony Geranio is now available in Cydia's BigBoss repository that allows you to easily jot down something in a rush and save it for later viewing.

    Shown above, the widget is really simple to use. You just type in whatever you need to keep in mind, and from there, you can use either the Save button, which saves the note to the widget (not the Notes application), or you can tap on the Share button, which brings up the sharing interface below:

    Even though saving to the Notes application is not supported at this point in time, don't fret. The feature is coming soon in an upcoming update.

    NCNotes is easily enabled or disabled on demand from the Notification Center preferences pane in the Settings application. You'll also find a new NCNotes preferences pane in the Settings application (shown below) that you can use to configure some of the tweak's various options:

    You will be able to configure the color of the notepad, the font size, and the font color. If for some reason you can't see what you're typing in the widget when you try and use it, make sure that you change the font size at least once.

    The color options you have include:

    • Black
    • Blue
    • Brown
    • Gray
    • Green
    • Orange
    • Purple
    • Red
    • White
    • Yellow

    The widget gives you pretty simple access to saving notes from just about anywhere in iOS. If you want to give it a try, it's available in Cydia's ZodTTD & MacCiti repository for just $1.99.

    $2....seriously? And it won't save to the Notes app. How about making this a free version and charge .99 (fair price) when it's updated to save to notes? Good luck...great idea. Too much for too little atm. And I'm sure another dev will bring out a .99 full version soon.

    Right now, the tweak only saves notes within itself.

    It will be updated in the future to support syncing to the Notes application.
