[Review] Black Icon Labels - Change All App Labels to Black Instead of White
Yet another non-customizable feature of iOS is the ability to change the color of the labels that accompany every application icon on your home screen. Whether on the home screen, on the dock, or inside of a folder, all of the application icon labels are white with a semi-dark shadowing behind them. A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Black Icon Labels
by iOS developer Bradley Friedman
will change the color of these application icon labels to black and disable the shadowing.
Black Icon Labels is simple in that it changes the application labels to black without having any customization options to configure. This can be both a good thing and a bad thing depending on your observational view on the matter. On the good side of the plate, itís less to worry about and you can simply decide whether you want white or black application icon labels. On the bad side of the plate, people generally like customization options such as the ability to choose their own colors or to enable and disable the tweak on demand.
For certain lighter-colored wallpapers, the black application icon labels pop out at you. Itís important to choose a wallpaper that will look good with the black application icon labels, otherwise the application icon labels will be difficult to read. For very light wallpapers, Appleís white application icon labels with the semi-dark shadowing donít really look too hot either.
The tweak doesnít offer any necessarily helpful functionality, as the changes are all cosmetic and not functional. As there are no options to configure, the only way to disable the tweak is to uninstall it from Cydia. If you like the idea of having these black-colored application icon labels, then you will find Black Icon Labels in Cydia from the BigBoss repository for free. Be sure to give it a try!
