Thread: 'Messages Customiser' Lets You Customize Your Messages App in iOS 7 to Your Liking

    Default 'Messages Customiser' Lets You Customize Your Messages App in iOS 7 to Your Liking


    With our iOS devices, text messaging and iMessaging might be one of the most used features of the devices. With that being said, it's nice to be able to make the Messages application our own, instead of having to deal with Apple's design.

    With a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Messages Customiser by iOS developer Charlie Hewitt, you can customize several different aspects of the Messages application. Shown above, you can see how the tweak lets you make some subtle differences.

    Once you've installed the tweak, you'll find everything you need in the tweak's preferences pane, located in the Settings application:



    The preferences pane gives you the ability to change the color of outgoing SMS chat bubbles, the ability to change the color of outgoing iMessage bubbles, and the ability to change the color of incoming messages. In addition, you can change the tint of the application interface, and choose whether or not you want to use gradients in the application. For bubble colors and application tint colors, you are given all of the following choices:


    • Dark blue
    • Light blue
    • Green
    • Red
    • Yellow
    • Orange
    • Pink
    • Purple
    • Teal
    • Dark gray
    • Light gray
    • Black


    In addition to coloring, the tweak lets you enable or disable the little tails that show on the chat bubbles, enable or disable contact pictures in the Messages application, and choose to enable or disable wider message bubbles to show more text per line.

    It is necessary to kill the Messages application from the App Switcher and re-launch it every time you make changes to the Messages application via the Messages Customiser preferences pane. If you don't, then you won't see any of your changes take effect.

    Messages Customiser seems to be a very promising solution for customizing your Messages application with a solid range of options available. If you want to give it a try, it's available for free in Cydia's ModMyi repository.

    Name: Messages Customiser
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4

    I Like the wide stretched out bubbles and the black, dark grey and light grey options... Looks good with the Bloard keyboard... Another theme helper without the use of winterboard... Is winterboard gonna be obsolete soon?

    This app works great. I love the look of the blue iMessage bubbles so now being able to have them all the time is awesome. Plus like above post, the darker colors look nice with bloard.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    This didn't work on my iPhone 5. It made all messages dark blue. I tried to change via settings, closed the messages app and did a respring, nothing seemed to work. Anyone else having issues?

    Did the same to me. In the settings for 'others bubbles' uncheck 'light gray' and recheck it. Same for other colors and options. Worked for me.

    Excellent tweak, much better than stock! I just wish I could change the background which would complete it for me! Maybe an update in the near future? 😉

    Doesn't work for me either on my i5. Nothing shows up in Settings for me to configure and it made all my texts dark blue. I've resprung and rebooted my phone as well as reinstalled it from Cydia. Nothing.

    Install "preference loader" from Cydia, try once more, and it'll work.
    You're welcome.
