iSounds: Add Custom Sound Effects To iOS Actions [Cydia Tweak]

If you have a jailbroken iOS device, then you should know that the Cydia Store is full of themes for making graphical changes to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, but what if you want to make changes to the sound effects on offer in Apple’s mobile platform? There are a few options for that as well, but iSounds is a Cydia app which covers just about every aspect of sound effects related to iOS. This app offers popular sound profiles for your iPhone, including Windows XP effects, Mac OS 9 sounds and a whole lot more. Read on to know how you can use this handy Cydia app to revamp the sounds your iDevice produces.

iSounds Home iSounds Store

iSounds is currently in its beta testing phase, but in our experience it worked perfectly fine, and did just what it is supposed to do. There are 5 sound profiles for now in the app’s own store, and you can download them all for free. To begin using the app, go to the BigBoss repo in the Cydia store, and download iSounds. Once the has been installed, you will see the new iSounds icon on the Springboard of your iDevice. Launch it, and go to the Store menu, located in the top right corner. In the store you will see the sound profiles currently supported by the app, which include Tapbot sounds, Apple Newton, Mac OS 9, Lego Mindstorms NXT and Windows XP. Choose your favorite, or download them all one by one.


iSounds Custom iSounds Profile

One you have the desired themes on the app’s homepage, you are ready to apply them. One profile can be used at a time, but the app does let users combine as many downloaded profiles as they want, and that can be done by going to the Create menu. This way you can merge different sounds, so that the startup sound can be from XP, while the app close effect might be chosen from OS 9. After applying any theme (custom or default), you have to respring the phone, which is possible via the button provided within the app in the top bar (incase you don’t have SBSettings). iSounds also enables Haptic feedback, although that feature is still in its initial stages, and might not work for most users.

iSounds is a free app for people having a jailbroken iOS device, and if you are a fan of customization, do try this tweak out.
