Sometimes the smallest of things can make all the difference. With everyone trying to customize their iPhone these days, it is not necessary that you apply a whole new theme to your iDevice to make it stand out, even a relatively small tweak like LabelEnhancer can do the trick. The functionality offered by LabelEnhancer might appear to be a bit insignificant in some people’s eyes, but you can’t deny the fact that the tweak is really unique. Using LabelEnhancer, you can change everything about the labels of apps on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The tweak offers options to change the font, color, size and shadow style of app labels. The choice of colors available in LabelEnhancer is unlimited, as you can use predefined colors or define your own RGB values.
LabelEnhancer can be configured fully from the menu it adds to the stock Settings app. Here is a list of all the sections available in the tweak’s settings.
- Labels Color: Before you can do anything else, it is better if you choose the method that you want to use for selecting the colors of the app labels. LabelEnhancer allows its users to apply predefined colors, RGB Colors and Random colors. Corresponding to your choice, there are options below the Method button. If you don’t want to go to too much trouble, and aren’t really particular about colors, use Predefined colors, and you will be able to apply any color to app labels with a single tap.
- Shadow Colors: LabelEnhancer even lets its users change the color of the labels’ shadows separately from the text itself. The color options are the same for text and shadows.
- Labels Font: The tweak has an impressive collection of fonts in its repertoire, though things would have been even more convenient if the font names themselves were displayed in their respective styles, as not many people will be able to know a font simply by its name.
- Label Size: Using the slider provided under this heading, you can change the text size of the app labels on the Springboard, although we don’t advise you to stray too much to the right as the labels don’t fit on the screen that way.
As unpleasant as it is, you will, of course, have to respring your iPhone each time you want to apply your customizations. The tweak is available as a free download in the Cydia store, and is a must-have for users with a thing for customization. Even if you don’t want to change label colors, you can use LabelEnhancer to make the text disappear completely; said option is available in the predefined color section. The changes made using the tweak are applied to labels of both apps and folders on your iDevice’s Springboard and dock.
