'Badge Customizer' Gives You All Kinds of Notification Badge Customization Options
Those of you that are into customizing all aspects of iOS will enjoy a new free jailbreak tweak called Badge Customizer
by iOS developer merdok.
Badge Customizer is a tweak that gives the user the ability to adjust the appearance of all badge notifications on the home screen. The customization options are extensive, offering features like color changing, re-sizing, location adjustment, and more. In fact, those familiar with a similar tweak called Boover
will find that Badge Customizer comes with several more user-friendly options:
First and foremost, users can easily enable and disable the tweak on the fly. Users will find an option to adjust the badge color, which is done via RGB sliders. Under the coloring options, users can also adjust the transparency of badges so that they’re either solid or see-through. Users will also be able to choose a blending mode to make their badges come to life.
After coloring is chosen, users can choose the size of the notification badge, and also the position of the notification badge on the application icons. Positioning can be set for any of the four corners of the application icon, or via the top or bottom middle of the application icon.
Badge Customizer is great for anyone trying to make their application badges look just a bit different than stock, or for those trying to make badges look nicer with certain themes. The tweak is free in Cydia right now if you want to give it a try, just remember to respring the device using the respring button in the preferences pane each time you adjust any options for your notification badges because for your settings to take effect, you will have to respring.
