Every app tends to have its own unique color scheme. But if you’d like to take things to the next level and you have a jailbroken handset at your disposal, then the jailbreak tweak we’re going show you might be of interest.
Enter Apps Colour Changer, a new and free extension for pwned handsets by iOS developer Lillie that lets the end user colorize various apps to their liking.
Right off the bat, we should mention that Apps Colour Changer’s support for apps is somewhat limited as of now, but that’s expected to change in the future as the developer continues to build the tweak. Listed apps currently include:
Since we already have Spotify and YouTube installed on our test device, we’ll be using those as examples in this piece. Since Spotify seems to favor the green color in its icon and general user interface, we’ve opted to colorize the app with a green aesthetic, like so:
Another example can be seen below, in which we colorize the YouTube app with a red aesthetic:
Once installed, Apps Colour Changer doesn’t add any options to the Settings app for configuration, but it does add a new app to the Home Screen where users can configure the colors of the aforementioned apps:
Upon tapping on one of the supported apps, the user will be presented wi the a color picker where they can select their preferred interface color for said app. Keep in mind that text legibility suffers with certain color choices, so experiment at will.
Please note that you may need to forcefully quit customized apps from the App Switcher and restart them after choosing a new interface color for the changes to take effect.
If you’d like to go hands-on with Apps Colour Changer for yourself, then you can download the tweak for free from Lillie’s personal repository via your package manager of choice. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 and 14 devices, and may also work with older versions, albeit untested.
If you’re not already using Lillie’s personal repository, then you can add it to your package manager app with the following URL:
