TypeStatus Plus to bring typing notifications to the Lock screen and Notification Center [Jailbreak Tweak]

TypeStatus Plus
Hashbang Productions has shared a teaser of TypeStatus Plus, an upcoming jailbreak tweak that displays typing notifications on both the Lock screen and Notification Center. The tweak supports a number of third-party messaging apps, and includes a plugin API so that developers can add TypeStatus Plus support to other apps. Read ahead for a closer look at the tweak. 
TypeStatus Plus ensures that you never miss a typing or read receipt by displaying notifications when someone is typing in Messages, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, Kik Messenger and Snapchat. The notifications list the name of who is typing, and tapping on one from the Lock screen allows you to easily jump back into a conversation you are having.
The tweak will have several other features, including customizable status bar notifications, the option to enable alert tones and integration with the Pebble smartwatch. The first beta of TypeStatus Plus will be seeded to a limited group of beta testers soon. Unfortunately, the developers are not looking for any new members at this point.

Hashbang Productions also confirmed that they will be focusing on bug fixes and compatibility with the iOS 7.1 jailbreak for their other tweaks. The team of developers has released several popular iOS extensions, including Animer7, FlagPaint7 and TypeStatus. Each of the tweaks are available on Cydia.
Additionally, the free version of TypeStatus is set to receive a major update:
“I’m working to rewrite large portions of the code behind the status bar overlay to be much more stable and future-proof so iOS updates are less likely to break it. iPad users will especially notice that TypeStatus will only push away the clock instead of the entire status bar. This will happen on iPhone too, if the TypeStatus overlay isn’t too wide.”
TypeStatus Plus will be 99 cents on Cydia upon release.
