Just this Saturday, iOS developer rms released Accentify. Accentify allowed you to change the color scheme of the iOS user interface, and came with many colors to choose from. Sunday, Accentify received a major update that added a ton of new features, like per-application coloring, a custom color option, and a new Jet Black color.
iOS hacker and developer Ryan Petrich has created his own version of the tweak called Emphasize. It’s a lot like Accentify, although it doesn’t have all of the features that Accentify has as of the latest update. If you have been itching to try Accentify, but are still on the fence about shelling out the 99˘, you might want to give Emphasize a try and see if you like the feature – Ryan is hosting it for free in his beta repository.
Emphasize is a bare-bones version of Accentify. You get the basic color-changing features, and the ability to set a different color for each application:
Notably, Emphasize doesn’t support the Jet Black color scheme, or the Custom RGB color scheme that Accentify does; however, it's available for free and comes with a decent amount of functionality.
