  • Customize the Call Button Text With 'CalliFy'


    Those of you that are modders – and we know there’s a lot of you out there – you can grab a new jailbreak tweak in Cydia today called CalliFy by iOS developers D3@TH and Aehmlo that will let you customize the text on the call button in the Phone application (iPhone only).

    The default text string of the call button in the Phone application is “Call,” however the tweak lets you change this string to anything you want – as long as it’s within 4 characters. The developers explain in the Cydia description of the tweak that this couldn’t be done in the past without having to SSH into the iPhone, and the tweak will make it easier to customize that text string.

    To customize the string of text shown on the call button, just head over to the tweak's preferences pane in the Settings application:



    The preferences pane comes with a text field, where you can input your >4 character text string that you want to use to replace the “Call” text that is there by default. Afterwards, tap on the “Apply changes” button to save your changes. You should also respring for the changes to take effect – unfortunately, the tweak doesn't come with a way to respring, so you'll have to download a third-party respring method if you don't have one already.

    The tweak is admittedly a little bizarre, being that it’s going to be a niche desire to change the text string of a call button that says “Call” on it for obvious reasons – but hey, if you want to, more power to ya! But for those interested, you will find the tweak in the BigBoss repository for free. It is compatible with iOS 5 and iOS 6.

It has never been about the money for me, and that's not about to start now. I love the jailbreak community and I'm sorry for all of this. CalliFy in its current state is not worth 99˘, for sure. See my recent tweets for more of my thoughts on the matter.

      Had nothing to do with the money, it was the principle, it definitely should not have been a paid tweak. I have nothing against the devs, and I'm glad they now agree that it should not be a paid tweak-so no more bickering from me .

      Mate, don't worry about it. Some people just want to complain about nothing. I wasn't mad I was just saying it needed a bit more. People didn't have to buy it if they didn't want to.

      CalliFy's source code is now available on GitHub! https://github.com/Aehmlo/CalliFy. Hope it provides learning developers with a good foundation for hooking C functions and such.
