Cuttlefish tints 3D Touch menu backgrounds on the Home screen to match the app color

By Anthony Bouchard on Dec 29, 2016

Those who use 3D Touch to access the Home screen menu shortcuts from application icons know its usefulness for getting to specific app actions quickly.

A new free jailbreak tweak called Cuttlefish aims to change that by dynamically colorizing the menu background blur to match the dominant color of the application icon you’re using the 3D Touch gesture on. Read More
