StayClassy Theme

iOS themes appear to be at the front and center of the jailbreaking community as of late, many of which we have featured in our ten best Winterboard themes roundup and new Theme Thursday series. The avalanche of releases continues with the arrival of StayClassy for the iPhone, a custom icon set that is both flat and gentle in design… 

I am a big fan of the color palette that StayClassy uses, ranging from burgundy and brown to dark green and navy blue. Each icon consists of a flat base with a white glyph, contributing to a simplistic appearance overall. The theme provides custom icons — 80 in total — for all stock apps and a number of popular third-party and jailbreak ones, including Activator, Alien Blue, Cydia, Evernote, Facebook, Google Maps, Gmail, Instagram, Twitter, Winterboard and YouTube.

In terms of downsides, this theme does not look very good with bright or detailed wallpapers. Mind you, not many themes do. I also find the Snapchat logo to be peculiar, as it is the only icon to have a black outline around the glyph. I get that the ghost is the official Snapchat logo, but the icon should still match the overall look and feel of the theme. Perhaps I’m just nitpicking.

I would also like to see more app icons added altogether, which designer Aleks Bahdanovich aims to provide in weekly updates. Non-themed icons aren’t absolute eyesores, however, as evidenced by Vine in the screenshot above. Bahdanovich is taking icon requests and will be releasing a PSD file so that anyone experienced with Photoshop can create their own.

StayClassy is available now for $2.50 (update: now 99 cents) on Cydia in the default MacCiti repository. I find that a steep price to pay for just 80 icons, especially considering that there are quality themes like Soft Remix for iOS 7 and Radiance that are free. Nevertheless, this is still one of the better themes you can get for around the price of a cup of coffee. iPad users that want a similar looking theme should look into Passtel.

If you want a reflected dock like I have, download ClassicDock.

What is your verdict on StayClassy?

  • Barry

    Hmm, if the color palette was a bit more brighter, I would’ve had considered.

  • Framboogle

    I think it can be best described as dull.

    • Here is a different wallpaper.

      • Framboogle

        Hm. I guess wallpaper does make a big difference.

      • ant3kn

        Could you send me the wallpaper? 🙂

      • Ninja Banana

        (iDownloadBlog copy’s wallpaper…) 0_o

      • Rifat Mohammed

        Can you review my theme?

        Its called Liminal For iOS 7

      • Jordan Dixon

        I quite like this theme. No Tweetbot icon though 🙁 Could you link the wallpaper in the first picture?

      • John

        So you just stole all the icons from the theme “Passtel” and renamed it Liminal.

        Great……

      • Rifat Mohammed

        What’s your problem little John.Your very jealous…You stupid???

        I told you a million times THAT I DID NOT COPY THIS ICONS!!!

        I have permission from the developer of passtel. He congratulated me for creating this theme.

        Now shut you bloody mouth and get the hell out of this website KID!

        THIS THEME IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FROM PASSTEL,ONLY THE IDEA IS SAME.

      • John

        No, I’m not jealous. I actually use the far superior “Passtel” theme. You know, the theme that originally used the exact same icons and colors.

        The fact that you are so angry makes it blatantly clear that you know you are in the wrong and are clearly ripping off someone else’s theme.

        I’m all for people making great themes but please don’t outright duplicate something. We already have Passtel. Try something else.

      • Rifat Mohammed

        Duude…I’m not angry.I just got the idea from it.Its entirely different.U need to download my theme to know the difference.U need to see it side by side to know the difference. The DEV is not gonna release passtel publicly in cydia.I think that’s why he permitted me to upload my theme 🙂

      • Tre Scaggs

        Looks good!

    • Tre Scaggs

      You’re right!

  • Damian W

    Seems themeing is over for now. Paying only for icons and wallpaper is not exactly what I would want.

    • Wait until you see my post about Elite7 then.

      • Maxim∑

        yeah thats a great theme! looking forward to it

    • אביאור רוקח

      You right but please wait to my new theme

  • Youngthegiant

    You can make this theme look more vivid using springtomize 3 under icons – icon image effect – High contrast

  • Rot Kelfer

    $2.5 seems a bit much for something as sad and dull as this

  • Fevostone

    My theme at the min.

  • Fevostone

    My theme at the min

    • Andrew’s OwlCity

      Ugly…..

      • Fevostone

    • Maxim∑

    • atkobath

    • cr0w_69

      I love your Photos icon ;o Keep up the good work ^_^

    • ew

  • Im releasing a theme within the next week!

  • Todd Sorensen

    Come on you guys. It’s not dull, it’s gentle. And after all, couldn’t we use a little more gentleness in the world?

    • Maxim∑

      I like my icons, bold,aggressive,wild and lethal

  • Supafly_Boy

    This is what a theme should look like.

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      What theme is that? It’s almost as if someone has taken some of the iOS 6 icons and flattened them perfectly for iOS 7…

      • Supafly_Boy

        To be honest that’s what Apple should’ve done in the first place. I like the UI changes, but the icons were all wrong.

      • lompi129

        Hey Supa, whats the name of the theme?

      • Supafly_Boy

        It’s called Old School Glyphs. The one in Cydia won’t be the same as mine though, I made a few changes to the ones I didn’t like. Weather, Calculator, Camera, App Store and iTunes icons were all redone by me.

      • lompi129

        Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. It looks really good. Great job

      • Supafly_Boy

        Thanks.

    • Jeff Ramirez

      I had this theme, but I deleted it. Now I can’t remember the name, and out of the hundreds of themes coming out like crazy, this is the only one that I like. What’s the name?

    • Cameron Chao

      i think it looks far to similar to stock icons, and some not flat enough.

  • Armando Ruiz

    This should’ve been named “stay dreary”

  • ‘Ariff

    This is a completely unrelated subject but I was wondering if anyone knows of a tweak or a kind of tweak that let’s you bypass the “Open In” limitations of apple.

    As in for example with iFile say I downloaded an attachment and I want to view it in iFile. When I long press said attachment there’s obviously no “Open In” iFile. Could make for a very powerful tweak in my opinion for those who wants to set “Open In” to their favourite productivity apps or so.

    On topic: Is it just me or when I saw the word “classy” I immediately thought of hipsters? I’m downloading it right after this.

    • Damian W

      There is nothing like this. Developers for some reason stay away from working on it. The good thing is iOS 7 has wider choice selection than ios 6

      • ‘Ariff

        Yet I still can’t open in iFile. Hmm okay then thank you for replying 🙂

  • Zod

    when is iPhone 4 support coming to classicdock?

  • BJon1986

    Here’s mine. I like this much better!

    • Which theme is this?

      • Mohammed Sahib

        Kiki, I guess. Even if it’s not, consider reviewing kiki, I like it so much.
        Edit: It’s not kiki.

      • BJon1986

        It’s Liminal-ios7 I like it but I often switch between that and an ios 6 theme. Like this

      • Rifat Mohammed

        Its called Liminal for iOS 7.I’m the developer of this theme XD

      • BJon1986

        It’s a great theme!!

      • John

        You stole all the icons from Passtel.

      • Rifat Mohammed

        Don’t be jealous john…I’m sure u will create a good theme some day 😛

      • Rifat Mohammed

        What’s your problem little John.Your very jealous…You stupid???

        I told you a million times THAT I DID NOT COPY THIS ICONS!!!

        I have permission from the developer of passtel. He congratulated me for creating this theme.

        Now shut you bloody mouth and get the hell out of this website KID!

        THIS THEME IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FROM PASSTEL,ONLY THE IDEA IS SAME!!!!! Your a kid u know that???

      • BJon1986

        Kind of played around tonight. (All night as I worked a twelve! Lol ) this is what I did!

      • Rifat Mohammed

        Its called Liminal For iOS 7

    • Osama Muhammed

      looks great but doesnt give the iphone feel

    • Rifat Mohammed

      Thanks for using my theme 🙂

  • DtownBlogger

    My favorite theme of the moment Hands Down! (Soft Remix)

    • Yash Gorana

      HOLLYYYY MOLLY !! LOVELY

  • Armando Ruiz

    What I’m working with at the moment.

    • DtownBlogger

      Nice! Still not sold on the circles tho…

  • AndroidDogHeatandSteelersFan

    heres mine

  • Smuys

    This is my new theme, it’s called clarity and it’s free 🙂

    • Albert

      That check mark in the dock, is that Clear or the stock Reminders app? Also, how’s your Music app themed, i.e. a clef like the stock app or headphones? If the former, then you should consider theming a headphone icon with maybe a “play” triangle in the middle. Just a thought 🙂

      • Smuys

        It’s todo7.
        Yup, just like the stock app, I might keep that design for another music app, if someone requests one 😉 thanks for the idea.

    • Albert

      Nevermind, just realized it’s a clef. What app is that on the bottom row, second from the right? Also, do you think you can them the Aliens Blue app? And maybe change the stock Reminders app :). I’m only suggesting these because I’m a huge fan of this theme and, IMHO, should’ve been a paid app. It’s unique!

      • Smuys

        I actually wanted to make it 0.99$ but the repos refused it, so I added a donation button but no one has used that yet :(((
        51 hours of work, 8000 downloads and not one cent…

        It’s spotify and the alien blue app should be themed.
        I wanted to keep most of the original design of the apps, that’s why reminders looks like that (it’s kinda like stock ios)

        Thanks for your support Albert

    • Ishaan Malhotra

      Whats the clock widget. Theme looks awesome but needs a better icon arrangement. Try iconoclasm or springtomise 3

    • Fred

      i love this theme, can you make a tutorial so that everyone can make his own icons?

      • Smuys

        There’s no real process, I create a base transparent 120×120 layer and create the glyph on top of it, that’s as far as it goes. It takes from 5 to 30 minutes per icon.

      • Fred

        ok, thanks,but how do you transfer it on iphone, i mean, do you use iFile or something like that?

      • Smuys

        Yup, I test it using dropbox and ifile

    • Jonathan

      What’s the widget on top called?

  • Matt

    Can someone tell me why when I download let’s say Flex 2 after in respring the device it disapears same with iFile? Like what was the point of me spending $4 on app that I can’t eve access

    • Umut Bilgiç

      Yep, having the same problem, I tried contacting the dev, maybe it is a bug with the latest version.

      • Matt

        Oh thank God I’m not the only one ha ha.

  • Wheresnemo

    my springboard.
    got the idea from a Reddit forum

  • Thiago Vaccaro

    Meh.

  • Wheresnemo

    my springboard
    got the idea from a forum on Reddit

    • Samir

      What’re you using?

    • Ishaan Malhotra

      Widget?

    • Yash Gorana

      FAAAAKKKKKK !! WHAT IS IT ? LIST EVERY SINGLE TWEAK/WIDGET

  • Umut Bilgiç

    It is kinda dull for me, love my setup so far:

    • Alexander Novarro

      what’s the name of the theme for the unlock pattern?

      • Umut Bilgiç

        It is actually a tweak called androidlockxt. It is a completely functional unlock pattern!

      • Alexander Novarro

        I know that… already had it on iOS 6… what I’m asking is the name of theme you are using with it!

      • Umut Bilgiç

        No themes, default option with no dots and arrows.

  • kjjtruong

    Love the colors of the StayClassy theme…will give it a go soon here. My favorite theme at the moment is M’flat and SubtleLock:

  • Nirvana

    Look just like Aplo

  • Youngthegiant

    Pure simplicity is the Greatest winterboard theme! Thank me later

    • Samir

      Just looked at it. Not disappointed. AT ALL.

  • Manuel Barboza

    Here’s mine

  • Thiago Vaccaro

    Elite7 <3

  • Jayy

    all these sreenshots you guys posted, is there like a forum where everybody can show their iphone screens all in one place?

  • Cameron Chao

    too little icon support, too boring design, colors a little dull (maybe thats the point)

  • What about the new released Colorize7? 🙂

  • Rifat Mohammed

    This one is lot better than Stay Classy…

    Its called Liminal for iOS 7

  • Albert

    What icons did you theme in the latest Clarity update?

  • Albert

    Thanks…Since you did ESPN Sportscenter, do you think you can to WatchESPN as well? Also, as far as paid apps go, since it would be unfair to ask you do those, is there a away I can perhaps email the pertinent details in order for you to theme them? I have around 7 paid apps. Either way it’s cool 🙂

    • Smuys

      Sure, you could email me, just use the cydia support tab.
      Don’t expect the next update before next week, got a lot of work at school.

  • My favourite theme, wallpaper is key.
