NCColors: Customize Notification Center background using simple RGB sliders

NCColors is a simple and straightforward method for customizing the background color of iOS 5’s Notification Center. To do so it uses simple red, green, and blue sliders to adjust the hue proportions, which allows you to easily come up with a seemingly infinite amount of custom colors.

The RGB sliders alone make NCColors one of the best tweaks available when it comes to changing Notification Center’s background color. Check out our further coverage inside…


What I really like about NCColors is that the changes to the colors take effect immediately, no resprings required. There’s also a provision that allows you to add blur to the background to make reading text easier.

The only thing that doesn’t work well is the disable switch. Disabling didn’t actually disable the tweak, even after a respring. I presume this will be fixed in a future update.

Even with the disabling issue, it would be hard to find a tweak that’s so easy and simple to use at this price point. NCColors can be downloaded for free on Cydia’s ModMyi repo for jailbroken iOS 5 users.
