Earlier this year, we reported on a Cydia tweak called “Rename” that allowed you to easily rename an app’s icon name. Since then, the tweak has seemed to vanish from the Cydia Store. Luckily, there is a new tweak on the block that allows you to rename apps straight on your iPhone, and it’s even easier than Rename.
Icon Renamer, by the renowned Cydia developer Ryan Petrich, is a new Cydia tweak that allows you to rename icons from your iPhone springboard in the simplest way possible. There’s nothing to the actual tweak, it integrates itself into your iPhone springboard…
When you download Icon Renamer from the Cydia store, there is no new app icon or settings pane for the tweak. Once installed, all you have to do to rename an icon’s name is tap and hold on the desired icon like you are going to move it, and tap the icon once more. Icon Renamer’s edit window will open and you can easily rename your icon and hit apply for instantaneous results.
Icon Renamer is an easy, free download in the Cydia Store.
We are curious to hear what you think about renaming app icons. Is it a valuable capability to you? Would you rename lots of apps? I would think there are some creative ways to do so.
