iPhone Discussion Hide iOS 6's New App Banner With 'NoNewApp'
With iOS 6, Apple introduced a new feature that places a banner on new applications you download from the App Store that says, “New.” This is obviously to alert you that the application was just downloaded, but most people know what application they have just spent the last couple of seconds or minutes downloading and don’t really need this rather redundant reminder.
If you don’t like being reminded that the application you just downloaded is a new application to your iOS device, then a new free jailbreak tweak named NoNewApp by iOS developer iMast777 gives you the ability to hide these banners from new applications that you download from the App Store.
NoNewApp comes with no options to configure. As soon as you install the tweak, the new banner will cease to appear on new applications you download from the App Store and it will never come back. If you change your mind and end up wanting to see the banners again, you can just uninstall the tweak and functionality will return to normal.
Since this feature is iOS 6-only, you will only be able to use this tweak on a device with the tethered limera1n jailbreak on iOS 6, such as the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 4G. You can grab NoNewApp from the ModMyi repository today.
