If you want to add a touch of color to your bland, white iOS 7 user interface, then check out a new jailbreak tweak called Tinct by iOS developer Charlie Hewitt from Cydia's ModMyi repository.

Tinct will add a preferences pane to your Settings application where you can start enabling and disabling features, choosing colors, excluding certain applications, and much more:



From the mail preferences pane, you can:


  • Enable or disable the tweak on demand
  • Enable color blending mode
  • Choose a specific background color
  • Choose a specific tint color
  • Choose a specific title color
  • Choose a Notification Center color
  • Choose a Control Center color
  • Choose a HUD color
  • Choose a Keyboard color
  • Configure presets
  • Configure advanced options
  • Exclude Tinct from working in specific applications
  • and more


When you go to pick a color for one of your interfaces, you will be sent to a color picker interface where you can simply tap on a color in the color graph to set it as the color that you want.

From the Advanced Options, you will find more in-depth settings:



You will be able to enable or disable the tweak for:


  • Notification Center
  • Control Center
  • Volume HUD
  • Keyboard
  • Action Sheets
  • Status Bar
  • SpotLight


You can also:


  • Enable Chroma for Excluded applications
  • Use Apple's black blur


From the excluded applications list, you can just choose applications that you don't want the tweak to be enabled in, which can help if you think that the colors over-power the specific application's user interface.

The end result of configuring your colors can range across the color spectrum, but here are some examples of colors we set:
