Reddit is one of the most popular social networking site and serves as a place for users to share news, funny images, AMA question and answer sessions and much more. If you’re a Reddit user, you might be mad by the fact that there’s limited push notifications for Reddit on iOS.
However, to enhance your Reddit experience on iOS, a new jailbreak tweak has been released in Cydia called ‘Orangered for iOS 7’ that will display Reddit notifications both in lockscreen and homescreen mode. Once you’ve installed the tweak from Cydia, you’ll have to configure it from Settings app.
From the settings pane, you can enable or disable the tweak, select the client which you want to use Reddit with (Default client is Safari) and configure the activator gesture you want to use in order to check for new notifications. In addition, you’ll have to enter your Reddit username and password to activate the tweak.
More configurations include an “always notify” option that will always notify you when Orangered checks your inbox, even if you don’t have email, a mark read option that will mark messages as read once the tweak sends you a notification and you can also set a sound for the notification alerts.
Lastly, you can set a “refresh interval” in order to determine when the tweak will check for new messages in your inbox.
Once done, you’ll need to tap on the “Apply Changes” button for the changes to take place. You will now be notified of any new messages, comments, mentions etc. on your Reddit account.
The tweak supports the following Reddit clients:
- Alien Blue
- Alien Blue HD
- OJ Free
- Karma Train
If you’re a Reddit user and are using an iOS 7 device, then check out ‘Orangered for iOS 7’ tweak which is available in Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $0.99.
