DNDBadges makes notification badges purple when Do Not Disturb mode is turned on

Do Not Disturb mode is an indispensable feature on iPhones and iPads that I’ve grown particularly fond of over the years. Although it isn’t new, I still use it just as much today as I did when it first came out.

There’s just one problem — it’s can be all too easy to forget that you turned Do Not Disturb mode on in the first place, which sometimes results in missed notifications that you otherwise didn’t intend to silence.

Animate your Home Screen’s notification badges with AnimeMyBadges Pro

Jailbreakers may recall earlier this month when we showed you a new jailbreak tweak dubbed AnimeMyBadges by iOS developer Antony M that provided a rather interesting breathing animation for your Home Screen’s notification badges. It was simple, short, and sweet, but if you were looking for a different notification badge animation, then you would have found yourself out of luck.

That changed this week with the release of AnimeMyBadges Pro, a paid upgrade from the aforementioned free release that offers nearly a dozen different badge animation styles to choose from.

AnimeMyBadges brings a unique breathing animation to notification badges

After receiving a notification from one of your apps, iOS and iPadOS put a badge on the Home Screen’s app icon to alert you to missed and/or pending notifications. The badge appears as a static red dot at the top-right of the icon, and while we’ve seen jailbreak tweaks-a-plenty that permit color customization of these badges, tweaks for animating said badges seem to be far less common.

Enter AnimeMyBadges, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Antony M that gives Your handset’s notification badges a unique breathing animation that causes them to wax and wane with what can only be described as the in-and-out rhythm of a breath.

BadgeBar replaces iOS’ ugly notification badges with colorful bars

I have always hated the way notification badges look on the iOS Home screen. Although the red dots are great at catching my attention, they do so in an incredibly hideous way, and I sometimes think that it takes away from the beauty of Apple’s platform.

If you agree that iOS’ notification badge system is due for a facelift and you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPad at your disposal, then you just might want to try a new and free jailbreak tweak called BadgeBar by iOS developer JannikCrack.

Colorize your iPhone’s notification badges for free with Pastel

Albeit true that Apple’s native badge notification system leaves a lot to be desired in terms of color customization, the jailbreak community has long offered solutions to this communal grievance. Unfortunately for our wallets, many of those solutions cost the end user money in some way, shape, or form.

Here to shake things up a bit is a newly released jailbreak tweak called Pastel by iOS developer ConorTheDev, which lacks a price tag of any kind. With that in mind, you can now customize the color of your jailbroken iPhone’s notification badges without paying a cent out of pocket.
