Springtomize: Jailbreak App Allows Users To Customize Almost All Aspects Of The iPhone


Student and iOS Developer, Filippo Bigarella has recently released a jailbreak app called Springtomize, which appears to be a collection of all the customization tweaks available for a jailbroken iPhone.

It allows you to customize your iPhone’s SpringBoard, look of the icons, folders, status bar, the lockscreen, customize various animations and lots more.

Here is the official description of the app:

Springtomize is the only tweak you’ll ever need to customize your device, in all of its aspects: from its capabilities to the look of your SpringBoard. You can disable elements you don’t use or that may slow down your device performances, you can customize the look of your icons, the dock, the folders and the Status Bar, or even your Lockscreen. Springtomize also allows you to save your SpringBoard layout and to restore it later, without wasting time moving icons inside folders or to their original positions!

You can also customize various animations of your SpringBoard or add nice mods to current ones, like choosing the color of the screenshot flash or to dim your device screen like an old TV when locking! Finally, in the Theming section you can choose to apply a custom dock or a transparent one; you can also make your icons transparent and set the brightness of your wallpaper, without having to edit the image with other apps!

Please note that there are still some known issues, which the developer is working hard to fix. He has just submitted a new version (v1.1), which fixes some of the issues.

You can checkout the demo video of the app in the action below:

Springtomize is available on Cydia for $2.99.

    I’m going to go download it now! Awesome!

    • jdb,

      I just paid and downloaded the app, and while it has a lot of tweaks in it I found that most of them have singular apps in Cydia that do a better job.

      For example, I use Five Icon Springboard to give me an extra icon on the dock. FIS evenly spaces out my icons, this new app does not (they overlap and look horrible). Same thing for the app switcher and icons on the main SB.

      Also, when changing the icon size with the program it doesn’t change the size of folders, just the icons (which makes it pointless because then you have multiple sizes on your SB – unless you move all of your folders to a separate page).

      I also found that a lot of the tweaks in the program conflicted with LockInfo and FolderEnhancer (especially the “magic battery” toggle, something I miss from Battery Control, an app by David Ashman that was discontinued) – both which are much more important to me then this package.

      If you already purchased this I would keep it installed (and disabled) and monitor Cydia for updates. Perhaps it may have potential, some day.

        Bemental, why is the first thing you mentioned that you paid for the app? Of course you paid for it, how else would you be able to get it? Unless you’re just making it a point to let everyone know that you’re not a pirate and you don’t pirate apps. Fact is, by making it a point to announce that you paid for it, you just proved that you stole it from one of the pirate repos. Idiot.

        • Kev

          maybe he did pay for it

        • judobear

          Really? Sounds like Your Momma had nothing good to add to the conversation, so he/she decided to pick on Bemental. Your Momma admit it, you pirate Cydia apps. Stop passing judgement on others who don’t.

        • Ess

          lol, why are you running your mouth for no reason… the end of the video mentions a free and paid version; so perhaps he was distinguishing between the two, genius…

        • melvarius

          there’s a lite version too

      • jdb

        I found the same thing. Almost better to install what you want, then download this and not have it working the way you’re used to.

      • tibika

        I wanted to ignore Your Momma at first, but then this unexpected rage came … WTF are you talking about, you piece of ****!? This is a place to write down your relevant comments and not insult people. Bemental was obviously putting emphasis on PAYING for the app, because he wanted to warn people not to waste money on it yet. It’s a common thing in communication … and you are a sociopath, if you don’t understand that. Also, judging by your comment, you definitely are one..
        So do us all a favor and just never use the internet again… ever!!
        BTW, i dont’ think the app is worth paying for, since you really do have lots of other (free and paid) apps to help you customize your phone. I agree that time will tell if this is any good for the users…
        Have a nice day, you all!

    • Rick

      Doesn’t change my icons at all. weird.

  • This is An Awesome app.. thanks

  • larry

    just got this app and it only put my phone into recovery everytime had to unistall it

  • pmc

    any conflicts with winterboard, bossprefs, lockinfo, etc?

  • Lou

    sounds like a great idea … but listening to user comments so far, sounds like he should have waited to release it until he had more of the bugs worked out. Poor releases mean poor reviews which will kill any business model; no matter how good it gets down the road.

  • timmy2testies

    well i wont pay for it i will wait until it gets pirated

  • fas

    This is truly an awesome app. superlike

  • Petter Poppet

    I loaded it on and made a few tweaks. Now when I press any icon on the screen they wont open. Cant access my phone now. Need to SSH the app of my phone but cant find it.

  • Predator

    Great app, but for some reason disabled my daylight savings time, forcing my iphone to be 1 hour off… Anyone else have this issue with this app?

  • larry

    Should refund people like us cause we first buyers are his guinea pigs

  • NativeCanadian

    The daylight saving issue is apples error again isn’t it?

    I am going to give this app a shot, but I am going to undo my current tweaks and uninsall all my tweak apps first. To the first poster that just instlled it on his phone stated his tweaks, and the ones he was already using seemed to suffer. I have had issues like this before when I tried to load redundant tweaks, there are funny issues running them over top one another just when you least expect it. Just because some apps can run over one another, don’t expect this to be the same, he clearly said it was a collection of existing tweaks, some of which you might already be running. Try undoing your tweaks and uninstalling, then add this app, and see then. I am curious. I will grab this when I get home.
    p.s. too bad cydia store can’t take apple itunes card… lol

  • Sahid

    Junk.. yesturday was ok, then today all apps I opened made them very small. and out 1/4 of scree touch would work. Had to put in safe mode and uninstall this. now my phone is back to normal.

    • ronnie

      dude it did the same thing to me, i didnt even think of putting it in safe mode, u just saved me from having to restore my phone…just wanted to thank u lol

  • yashif

    great app. i am download it. by the way sound of the demo video suckx

  • hitmndmouf

    This App reminds me of the Supreme Preference App, which used to be free in Cydia. I miss that App. Also check out Advance and Extended Preferences….still in Cydia.

  • Playafied

    Nice idea in this app… but there still is alot of work to be done until I will reinstall it on my phone. I would like to use this app on a freshly jailbroken phone however. Springtomize might still conflict with the remnants of the removed tweaks too.

    Once the bugs are finally gone, this will be the app of all apps for a jailbroken phone!!!

  • StevieBoy

    After updating I lost multitasking and it split my iPod app into music and videos. I have an iPhone 4 on 4.1 so it was a bit jarring. Had to turn on the toggle to change these features and enable them even though it shouldn’t have effected them at all. Weird. Everything else seems fine after that though. Nice work 🙂

  • K…

    This app is cool but somehow after you reboot the phone, the screen appear only 1/4 and i could not able to touch or change anything or go to any other app.. try to get in cydia but could not… I am really need help how to delete this app….

  • Mike

  • Susan
