Ever thought the glowy status bar that shows up when tethering your iPhone was kind of dull? Want to spice things up a bit? Then Tetherize may be for you, assuming you use the native tethering capability, and not a jailbreak app like MyWi or PDAnet.

Tetherize is a new jailbreak application that allows you to slightly customize the tethering status bar by adding text to it, or by stopping the glossy bar from glowing. That’s all there is to this app so far, although the dev promises “loads of new styles coming up”…

I guess the biggest downside to this app is that it only allows you to customize the native tethering app. If you’re using MyWi, you’re out of luck with Tetherize. Still, at the unbeatable price of free, Tetherize is a nice little addition to our growing collection of jailbreak tweaks.

Have you tried this application? If so, what’s your take on it? How would improve it?
