'Colorize' Will Tweak the Music Application User Interface Color to Match Album Artwork
If you're looking to change the bland white user interface of the iOS 7 Music application and make it scream with colors from your own music, then a new jailbreak tweak called Colorize by iOS developer Stevie Hetelekides might be just the tweak you're looking for.
The tweak will adjust the color of the Music application's interface so that it matches the color tones of the album artwork of the music that you're listening to, as shown above. As you move through your music, and the album art changes, the Music application's user interface will change in real time too. Some more color examples are shown below:
Because the white interface is just so simple and boring, this tweak adds a nice touch to the Music application. Music is one of the things in our world that is supposed uplift our spirits, and the application that you use to listen to your music should uplift your spirits too. That's the idea behind Colorize.
The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand:
If you want to give Colorize a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for 99¢. Colorize goes along very well with Spectral, a jailbreak tweak that adjusts the background of your lock screen depending on the album art that displays. If you don't have the money to spend right now, a free alternative to Colorize is BlurredMusicApp, which blurs the music interface to match the iOS 7-style iTunes Remote application rather than matching the user interface to the color tones of the album artwork.
Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4

It would be nice if it could also dynamically change the status bar somehow. White almost always looks better anyway unless the background is extremely light.

This looks so much better than Apples lame attempt at an interface.
The big question is this better than Coverflow?

There's also another great tweak on the big boss repo that does the exact same thing as this tweak. It's called colorflow

how about we get a tweak for the Podcast App?? I mostly download podcast of my favorite DJ radio shows and since podcasts are now a separate app from the iPod app, it kinda gets left out.
