A remake of the popular ShortLook by Dynastic Tweak for rootless and rootful jailbreaks.
Glance allows you to see your incoming notifications from far away, so you don’t have to interrupt anything you do!


  • Show the app title and icon without turning on your screen
  • Optionally show the notification's content as well
  • Display, for supported apps, the profile picture of the sender
  • Interrupt the animation at any time by tapping anywhere on the screen
  • Customize the animation durations
  • Customize the text sizes
  • Lock the device after displaying a notification
  • Don't show anything when a focus mode is enabled


Glance relies on the usage of plugins to provide profile pictures for display. Plugins can be installed from this repo.
Currently supported are:
  • WhatsApp
  • Instagram
  • Discord
  • iMessage / SMS


This tweak supports iOS versions from 15.0 - 17.4 on rootless and rootful jailbreaks. RootHide support is not provided but should be possible by using the patcher. Any issues that occur can be reported here
Checkout Bloom, with which this tweak is also fully compatible with.


Beyond Chariz's Refund Policy, which you can find here, I will refund any purchases whose refund is requested in the first 24 hours after purchase. I reserve the right to deny any refunds beyond Chariz's Refund Policy that are rude, insulting, malicious or if I suspect any thereof.


I'd like to thank the following people, in no particular order, for their direct or indirect support in the making of this tweak
  • Improved deciding which notification gets displayed (should no longer display notifications from apps with disabled notifications)
  • Invented Color (you can now get colored text based on the app icon or profile picture)
