We are living in an era where we cannot survive without social networking applications, and the instant messaging ones including WhatsApp Messenger. The app that is now available for all major operating systems now, of course excluding Microsoft Windows or Mac OS, is now the most widely used IM client in the world. No doubt why Facebook thought of purchasing it for a whopping $16 Billion USD. Anyway, coming back to the topic of concern today, we often get annoyed by multiple notifications banging into our devices, and in case we turn notifications off, we tend to miss out on important information. Not any more. The jailbreak community for iOS has finally come up with a tweak that lets you snooze WhatsApp notifications on iPhone instantly. Going by the name – NotifyMeAgain, is capable of snoozing notifications for any other app as well. We will talk about the functionality of this tweak in the later part of this tutorial. Here’s how to get it on your iPhone.
How To Snooze WhatsApp Notifications On iPhone
NOTE: Please note that NotifyMeAgain is a jailbreak oriented tweak and requires you to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. In case you haven’t jailbroken your iDevice yet, you can follow our step by step tutorial below. Make sure you take a complete backup of your iDevice before proceeding.
Step 1: On your iPhone’s springboard, navigate to the Cydia application and tap on the Search button on lower navigation menu to search for NotifyMeAgain tweak.
The tweak is available under the BigBoss repo for free. That’s right. Simply tap on the Install button on top right corner to get the tweak on your iPhone instantly. You can tap on Return To Cydia button when asked to exit Cydia.
Step 2: Navigate to Settings->NotifyMeAgain to configure the settings of this tweak. You will find a page similar to the one below. Here, you can set a snooze time, ranging from 1 minute to 5 hour.
That’s right. For this tutorial, I’m going to select a snooze time of 3 minutes. Also, you can choose two different snooze times according to the direction you swipe at. For instance, if you select 1 minute for left swipe and 3 minutes for right swipe, your notifications will be snoozed according to the swipe you perform.
The tweak is perfect for somebody who is busy at a moment and cannot afford to miss out on any text from anybody. We at SwapMyApp found that the real utility behind this app emerges when integrated with WhatsApp, as its the only app that sends you a lot of push notifications. Now never miss out on any of them!
