What is Konban?

Once installed, Konban tweak adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app from where you can configure all available options. Toggle the tweak on or off on demand, hide the status bar, select any app you want from settings, and set the app windows scale and corner radius.
To view the app in Today View, simply swipe right from the left edge of the Home Screen or the Lock Screen. Konban will load the app for quick access. The tweak recognizes not only system applications but also sideloaded by the users. To apply all changes respring is required.
As mentioned already, the Konban tweak allows you to customize the look of the app window displayed in the Today View on your device. You can change how big the app window is (default 80% of the screen) and set the corner radius for a better look.
