  • 'Fancy' is An Upcoming Tweak for iOS 7 that Lets You Colorize the Interface Elements


    With the release of the iOS 7 jailbreak, we're starting to see some really cool modifications for Apple's new operating system.

    One of them that's going to stand out for a while to come is an upcoming tweak by iOS developer Mitch Treece dubbed Fancy. Fancy allows the user to colorize iOS 7 with certain colors. As shown above, we can get rid of the boring gray color in iOS 7, and colorize the individual interface elements with almost any color that we want, such as orange.

    Not only can the user pick one color for all of the individual interface elements in iOS 7, but users can also individually color the individual interface elements in iOS 7, so that each element radiates a different color. For example, in the screenshot below, we have colored the SpotLight interface red, and the keyboard blue:



    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure all of the colors for the individual interface elements. From here, you can also enable or disable the tweak on demand:



    The top cell gives the user a "Global Tint Color" option, where the user can pick a color. This color will be applied to every interface element in iOS 7 by default. Users can pick between any of the following color choices:

    • Red
    • Orange
    • Yellow
    • Green
    • Blue
    • Light blue
    • Purple

    If the user goes into the cells below this and changes the colors for each of the individual interface elements, the color that is chosen will override the global tint color for that particular interface element. For example, if we come over to the Banners cell, we are given the option to choose a color tint for the banners alone:



    For the banners, users can also choose an animation style. Banners are the only interface element in the Fancy jailbreak tweak that have more options other than picking the tint color. You can pick between any of the following banner animation types:

    • Default
    • Fade
    • Slide left
    • Slide right

    This tweak gives users a lot more control over the look and feel of their iOS device. With the ability to tint your device the way you want it to look, you won't have to put up with the unappealing gray look anymore. Fancy isn't yet available, but it will be making its way to Cydia in the next couple of days, so keep your eyes peeled!
