Add a splash of color to the Home Screen’s contextual menus with Color3DIcons

Whether you’re new to or experienced with jailbreaking, one thing that remains true about most users of pwned iPhones is that they love personalizing the native user interface in ways that makes it stand out from a crowd of vanilla handset users.

If you’re moderate when it comes to personalization and you like adding custom colors to existing interfaces as opposed to replacing them with something different outright, then you just might appreciate a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Color3DIcons by iOS developer CydiaGeek.

As shown in the screenshot examples above, Color3DIcons lets users add a fresh coat of paint to the contextual menus that can be accessed from the Home Screen with a 3D or Haptic Touch gesture on any app icon. The effect averts blandness while still refraining from overpowering the interface’s intended aesthetics.

Once installed, Color3DIcons adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users can configure a few options to their liking:

Here, you can:

  • Enable and configure a custom icon color
  • Enable and configure a custom blank separator color
  • Enable and configure a custom separator color
  • Hide menu icons entirely
  • Hide menu labels and icons entirely
  • Hide menu separators entirely
  • Make menu labels and icons red

Those interested in trying the Color3DIcons tweak out for themselves can download it for free from the BigBoss repository via their favorite package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices of all varieties.
