ColorFlow Featured

ColorFlow is a recently released jailbreak tweak that colorizes the look of the stock Music app. The colors impact nearly every facet of the stock Music app, from the buttons, to the sliders; even the backgrounds aren’t spared.

The colors are inspired and derived from the currently playing album artwork. ColorFlow is a gorgeous looking tweak that’s a must try for iOS 7 jailbreakers. Have a look at our full video walkthrough after the jump.

The thing that I like about ColorFlow is that it just works when you install it. There are no options or settings to configure; just install it, and start playing your favorite songs via the stock Music app.

The effect is best seen with album artwork that features vivid colors, but I think that the stock Music app benefits greatly regardless. If you want to try ColorFlow, then head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where it can be had for $1.99.

Developer, David Goldman, did a fine job putting this tweak together. Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

    This is cool! I’m going to try it out.

    • onebyone_

      yep! it’s like a chameleon music player 😉

  • czarczarczar

    Isn’t the same as SPECTRAL? I think so , it’s a cool tweak but spectral is free and does the same .

    • Julian Gigola

      no, it’s not the same, it replaces the song’s color scheme with the horrible white UI and it’s put together a lot better!! but spectral replaces the white UI with a low quality, blurred Artwork!

      • Mads Teland

        It does on lockscreen, but BlurredMusicApp is that you are talking about on Music.app like Remote.app blurred background player.

      • Julian Gigola

        Yeah u’re right! Messed it up! But u can’t compare spectrum & this one! That one’s for the lockscreen

  • Muzz_Tech

    i wish you would’ve compared it with Colorize…

  • illK†Δ

    But who is looking at their music while it’s playing? Still, I think the tweak is awesome.

  • Luis Marcanth

    I use Colorize, and as far as I can see, it does the exact same thing, and it costs only $0.99. Are there any differences between the two?

    • Salman Burhan

      In my point or view, colorize just colors UI. but colorflow changed the UI color as well as changing the text color and sliders color. So if there’s two major colors I’m an artwork like black and yellow. The UI would be black and the title and sliders would be yellow. It mixes more colors into it. But then again this is what I think in my opinion. Everyone has their own.

    -Jailbreak reinvent the iOS-

    before Andoird see the light for the first time, one tweak bring the first toggles for iOS “SBSETTINGS”. one of my favorites. then android just make a copy of that. then Apple give us the notification center. then. control center.

    You have a great taste in music Jeff!

  • marTone

    It’s great, I like it.
    Do you know a tweak that allows you to group your music by albums in the stock music app under playlist view instead of an endless que. I’m dieing here for a tweak like that and I guess it’s not a big deal for someone who knows how to do it:) thx a lot

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Just go to the albums tab or am I missing something? That or just use smart playlists that auto-update on your PC or Mac…

      • marTone

        🙂 My problem is that I organise my music on a monthly basis, like 2014.JAN and so on. Usually I store tons of music on my iPhone well organised but when I want to use the playlists tab it’s just kinda useless. Endless titles with artwork :/ Basically I’d love an Artist view under Playlists. FWP right?

  • Matt Taylor

    My problem with this tweak is the pixelated volume icons! Look at the pic… Colorflow left, stock right!

  • Albert

    Does it work on the lock screen?

    • KingKon_NL

      No, it does not.

  • Kevin Andrada

    I think the colors on Colorize are better than Colorflow. Also, some texts get ugly on Colorflow sometimes–texts will not be readable. Like when there is no album artwork, some texts are white on a white background.

    • KingKon_NL

      I have to disagree with you on this one. With Colorize sometimes you can’t see anything on the screen except for the control buttons. Colorflow seems to use contrasting colors for the text and the background to make sure that the text and control buttons are always readable. Try using Colorize with an album cover that has a black background with white lettering.
