Springtomize

Posted: February 4, 2013

Springtomize is a great program for customzing your iPhone. It contains a plethora of tweaks and many ways to visually customize your iPhone. There is no way that I could cover everything. I'm going to cover each category broadly (mainly to show you all your options) and also cover a handful of items that I like to whet your appetite.





This program is for sale on Cydia and it costs $2.99. I receive nothing from the program's developer. I just want to make you aware of an important program to help you theme your iPhone. This program can be used in conjunction with WinterBoard themes.



Overview

You can either launch the application direct from the springboard or from within Settings. Here's the main menu.

Animations

Adjusting this changes the speed that apps open and close. The smaller the number the quicker the transition.

iPhone




App Slider

You can choose to hide the app icons when you are in the app switcher along with changing the sizes of the sample pages from 20% to 200%. You can even associate a respring with swiping the home page up to close it.

Control Center

When you swipe up from the bottom of the screen you open the Control Center. You can choose to hide everything in it if you want to.

Dock

Hide dock hides the dock and all the icons in it. The icons on your screen will spread out to fill the height of the screen. Hide background hides the colored bar behind your dock icons.

You can resize your dock icons and choose between 25% to 200%. You can also hide the labels on the dock icons. You can also increase the amount of icons in your dock up to 10. You can also adjust the side inset which will spread out the icons in the dock to fill the width of the screen or place them right next to each other.

You can also enable the Coverflow effect or reverse it. Adjust the factor and the perspective of the icons to further fine tune the appearance of the icons.

iPhone




Folders

You can nest folders by creating the interior folder from within the exterior folder. Pinch to close is another very slick feature.

The background can be made transparent when the folder is open, but when it's closed you'll see a colored background. I don't understand what unblurred icon does. You can eliminate the opening and closing animation. Resizing your icons is also an option from 25% to 200%.

You can hide the labels and increase the amount of columns to 10, and the rows to 8. Altering the vertical padding, horizontal padding and side inset can produce some unique layouts. Don't forget to throw in the Coverflow effect along with some factor and perspective changes.

Icons

There's a lot of options in this section including hiding the updated badge, locking your app layout, disable the app wiggling that happens when you want to move or delete an app. You can even disable the ability to uninstall apps, and hide badges on all of them.

The icon image effect has 8 filters you can apply. Here's red ascendant. You can adjust the transparency of all the icons.

Not only can you change the background color of badge icons, but you can change the color of the text that appears on them. You can also hide any icon that you want.

Lock Screen

You can also modify the lock screen by hiding the camera (which disables the functionality), the slider (where you can even place custom text), the clock size can be increased, seconds can be added, and the date can be increased in size as well, or substitute text used.

Pages

Page dots can be hidden here, along with the ability to disable the Spotlight search function. As discussed in other sections, the icons can be resized from 25% to 200%, the text labels can be hidden. You can add more columns (up to 10), or rows (up to 8). Vertical padding, horizontal padding and side inset can be adjusted. The Coverflow affect can also be applied and adjusted.
