QuartzSettings: customize the appearance of the iPhone’s Settings app

QuartzSettings Settings app

QuartzSettings is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to customize the appearance of the Settings app. Using one of the three built in themes, or by using the tint from your iPhone’s wallpaper, you can give the Settings app a significantly more exciting look. Watch our video for a demonstration of QuartzSettings in action.

Once QuartzSettings is installed, venture over to the stock Settings app to configure the tweak’s preferences. There, you’ll find three buttons—Enable, Themes, and Preview.

The Enable button is basically a kill-switch, in that you can use it to toggle the tweak on or off. The Themes button opens up the theme section, and the Preview button lets you preview various theme configurations.

Inside of the Theme section, you’ll find three themes: Black Panther, Panda, and SkyView. Each theme features its own unique color scheme for the Settings app, and can be enabled or previewed using the buttons beneath each theme name.

If you have QuartzSettings enabled, but all of the themes disabled, you’ll still be able to benefit from the wallpaper tint features built into the tweak. This option allows you to use the colors from your iPhone’s wallpaper to tint the Settings app in unique ways that differ from the built in themes.

QuartzSettings is compatible with custom themes, so eventually theme designers will submit their own themes to Cydia for separate download. This could allow themers to create a theme that goes along with the rest of the custom interface throughout the iPhone’s UI.

I really like QuartzSettings, and my fondness of the tweak is made even stronger due to the fact that’s it’s free of charge on the BigBoss repo. What do you think about QuartzSettings? Drop us a line down in the comments below.
