'ColorBadges' Colorizes Your Notification Badges to Match Your Application Icons
If you're into subtle customization like I am, then check our ColorBadges
by iOS developer David Goldman; it's one of those "little, but pleasant" jailbreak tweaks that has been made available in Cydia recently that is worth checking out.
Shown above, ColorBadges will automatically colorize all of your incoming notification badges to match the dominant color of your application icons. For example, the black color of the Tally Pro icon creates a black icon badge, the blue color of the Twitter icon creates a blue icon badge, and the green color of the Messages icon creates a green icon badge.
Not only does the color of your notification badge change, but the tweak also puts a border around the badge to help increase the contrast and make it easy to read on the application icon with the matching color.
The tweak also works with folders. The tweak will take the color of the application icon with the highest numeric notification badge in that folder and use that color on the outside of the folder. So if you have both Messages and Twitter in the same folder, but you have 3 Twitter notifications and 5 unread messages in your Messages application, the folder will have a green notification badge because the Messages application has the highest amount of notifications.
ColorBadges is fully compatible with both stock iOS application icons, and also with third-party Cydia themes, such as ayecon
. There are no options to configure. The tweak requires iOS 7 to be installed, and can be installed on both 32-bit and 64-bit iOS devices. If you want to give it a try, it's available for just 99¢ in Cydia's BigBoss repository.
