Know WhatsApp users’ online status with this jailbreak tweak

Get iPhone Notification When WhatsApp Contact Is Online

Enter OnlineNotify, a tweak for those who have jailbroken their iOS devices. With this tweak, you no longer need to launch the app and keep a check on your friends’ online status. If your friend is online but won’t reply to you, this tweak is useful.

OnlineNotify, just as the name suggests, sends a push notification to you when a contact comes online and also when a contact starts typing so you can catch him/her online and start chatting if you wish to. There’s no functionality to know whether the message sent is read or not, but then WhatsApp already has this functionality baked in as two green ticks mean the message has been read by the recipient.

Apart from that, it also has an option for Notification Center, in which you can toggle on or off all the notifications from this tweak. This option is handy, particularly if you have lots of contacts and in such a case, notifications can be annoying.

This tweak will, however, requires running WhatsApp all the time in the background, which can affect the battery life of your device, and your status will also always appear as online.

This OnlineNotify tweak costs $1.99 and can be obtained from the BigBoss repository. If you are a hardcore WhatsApp user, then you’ll love this tweak.
