Thread: 'DathMessages' Will Let You Colorize the iOS 8 Messages App Exactly How You Want

    Default 'DathMessages' Will Let You Colorize the iOS 8 Messages App Exactly How You Want


    If you've ever wanted to give the bland and boring iOS 8 Messages application a complete makeover so that the color scheme matches your personality, then you're in luck because iOS developer orangebananaspy has just released a new jailbreak tweak called DathMessages that lets you customize the style, color, and appearance of the Messages application in iOS 8.

    For example, check out this masterpiece:



    DathMessages adds a new application icon to your Home Screen where you can configure all of the colors and styles to your liking:



    When you open the application, just tap on the "Customize" button and you will be brought to a selection interface where you can choose what you want to customize from the factory defaults. Among them, you can customize:

    • iMessage bubble colors
    • iMessage text & link colors
    • SMS bubble colors
    • SMS text & link colors
    • Recipient bubble colors
    • Recipient text & link colors
    • Balloon text font & size
    • Application background color


    When you choose an option, you can pick the color that you want for whichever interface you get into. You can pick your color by typing in the color name, or by typing in a color code (#FFFFFF for example) that corresponds to a color you want. You can also pick between various font types and even choose the text size.

    When you're finished, you will have a nice customized Messages application experience. If you want to give DathMessages a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for just $1.99. Keep in mind, the tweak requires iOS 8 to be installed and used.

    Name: DathMessages
    Price: $1.99
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1.2
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1.2
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Orangebananaspy
    Editor's Rating: / 4.5/5

    Too bad you can't make the Messages app look like the DathMessages setup screen!

    Looks like a pretty amazing tweak. We really need a way to change the shape of the chat bubbles.

    Too bad you can't add a back ground photo in your message app.

    I'm not even sure I would want a feature like that. It seems to me that would/could cause a lot of color conflict and just look downright ugly. :/

    hmmm... wondering If I can get all black with no bubbles and just colored text. Even better if it were all left-justified instead of alternating left/right - kind of like handcent when I had my Samung. That was perfect. Messages customizer (iOS7) came close.

    Default Message customizer wannabe?
    dupe in error - sorry
