WhatsApp is a popular app among young and old. It lets you chat, share pictures, audio and video files with each other. With its wide use, users increasingly crave for a WhatsApp feature or an app tweak that notifies them about their WhatsApp online contacts.
There are millions of active users around the globe who use WhatsApp as their primary means of communication over smartphones. For this reason there are a lot of third-party apps out there that aim to enhance features of WhatsApp for individual users. There is one app, a Cydia tweak by the name of ‘OnlineNotify’ that has become exceedingly popular among WhatsApp users.
Once you install OnlineNotify, it pushes WhatsApp notification for online contacts right in your iPhone notification center. You don’t need to check WhatsApp every minute to see if a specific contact on WhatsApp is online. In OnlineNotify, you can choose a list of WhatsApp contacts and then you’ll be notified as soon as those contacts on WhatsApp come online.
OnlineNotify: Get notified about WhatsApp online contacts
OnlineNotify is a jailbreak tweak. This means you need to jailbreak your iPhone to get WhatsApp notification for online contacts. It is a paid tweak from the BigBoss repository. You get notified when a specific contact from WhatsApp comes online, goes offline or is typing. This tweak notifies you the WhatsApp online status of your chosen contacts in the notification center along with other regular notifications.
Features of OnlineNotify: WhatsApp notification for online contacts
You get notified about your WhatsApp online contacts whether your using WhatsApp or some other app. If you’re not using WhatsApp at any time, you get WhatsApp notification for online contacts in your phone notification center. However, this feature will work only for those WhatsApp contacts that you added in OnlineNotify.
Moreover, you get WhatsApp notifications when your chosen contacts go offline. By installing OnlineNotify, you can see which of your WhatsApp online contacts are typing. This works for all contacts, whether they’re added to OnlineNotify or not.
What OnlineNotify does is that it places a WhatsApp online indicator next to your online contacts’ name in group info as well as favorites list. It also replaces the status text of your WhatsApp online contacts with their ‘last seen info.’ You can also change notification sounds and get notifications from WhatsApp contacts using Android phones.
It may happen that at some point in time, you don’t want to be notified about WhatsApp online status of your contacts. For this purpose, OnlineNotify adds a FlipSwitch in Control Center of your iPhone. You can toggle this switch to enable or disable WhatsApp notifications for online/offline contacts.
Do you know you can get WhatsApp notifications for online contacts without being seen online yourself? Select another version of WhatsApp to run OnlineNotify status tracking and no one will know you’re online on WhatsApp.
