Flashy lets jailbreakers customize their iPhone’s screenshot flash

It has become quite the norm to snap a screenshot whenever you feel like sending someone a representation of your iPhone or iPad’s display, but one thing that hasn’t changed even slightly over the years is the bright white screen flash effect that was designed to simulate that of an actual camera flash.

If you’re interested in customizing the screenshot flash in any way, shape, or form, then you might take a liking to a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Flashy by iOS developer CydiaGeek. In a nutshell, this tweak lets you customize the screenshot flash’s color and make other minor adjustments to the screenshot flash behavior.

Once installed, users will find a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app where Flashy can be configured to their liking:

Here, users will be able to:

  • Enable and configure a custom screenshot flash color
  • Hide the screenshot preview and flash effect
  • Enable a flash zoom effect
  • Enable a flash blur effect

The zoom and blur effects are additional ways to augment the bland, stock screenshot flash effect in addition to using a custom color besides white. Together, the effects can produce an aesthetically pleasing flash whenever you snap a screenshot.

If you’re interested in giving Flashy a try, then you can download the tweak for free from the BigBoss repository via your favorite package manager. Flashy supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices.
