  • 'IconOmatic' Un-flattens Your iOS 7 Home Screen Application Icons

    One of the biggest beefs with iOS 7 is about how ugly the application icons look now. They're too flat and look like they were made in Microsoft Paint. If you want to add depth back to your Home Screen's application icons and un-flatten them, a new jailbreak tweak called IconOmatic by iOS developer FreeApple is now available in Cydia's ModMyi repository that will help you do just that.

    As shown above, IconOmatic makes your iOS 7 application icons look aesthetically pleasing again by adding shadowing, glossy application icon masks, and more. All of this is included in the free version of the tweak, but if you choose to pay into IconOmatic Pro, you'll get additional features such as dynamic application icon shadowing, application icon shrinking, application icon label editing, and more.

    IconOmatic adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a number of options:

    Here, you can enable and disable IconOmatic outright on demand, enable or disable individual features on demand, such as the glossy application icon mask, the shadowing, and even the dynamic shadowing. (Users of the regular IconOmatic get 10 free days to test out dynamic shadows, and they can customize things such as the corner radius, shadow radius, opacity, width/height, and more; upgrading to IconOmatic Pro will unlock this feature forever.) Additional features, which are in beta at this point in time, are the ability to remove the blurred dock, and the ability to remove application icon labels. You'll want to respring each time you make changes to save them.

    IconOmatic is designed to work with WinterBoard, and comes with three themes you can enable from WinterBoard. The theme we're showing you in the first image of this article is called "iOS6 iconOmatic Theme." WinterBoard isn't necessarily required to use IconOmatic (it'll still change your application icons without it), but you'll get the best visual results using the WinterBoard theme(s) along with IconOmatic. More themes are destined to be added to IconOmatic in the future, but these will get you started.

    You can read more about IconOmatic from the source thread right here on the ModMyi Forums by subywrex.

    Whether you just want to get rid of those flat iOS 7 application icons, or you want to make your themes pop, IconOmatic is worth taking a look at. It's available in Cydia's ModMyi repository right now for free and works on any iOS 7 iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
