DathBanners: Jailbreak tweak brings life to Notification banners

DathBanners Lite

DathBanners Lite is an interesting new tweak that gets rid of the old look of the notification banner and brings a more dynamic look to it.

The tweak changes the color of the incoming notification banners based on the dominant color of the app. Every time you receive notifications from different apps, the background color of the banner will differ.

As an example, if you receive a text message from the Messages app, the notification banner will be colored green. On the other hand, if the notification belongs to the Twitter app, the banner background will change to blue color. It’s a great way of bringing life to your notification banners and make it look more dynamic. For app icons that feature a combination of different colors, the end result won’t look so good.

DathBanners doesn’t come with any preferences pane to configure the tweak. Once you’ve installed it, you’ll notice the color of the notification banners change dynamically. The developer also recommends that if the color of the banners don’t change, you should respring your device.

Since this is the “Lite” version of the tweak, it might be the reason why it doesn’t provide any configuration options. If the developer is working on a paid version of the tweak then we can expect to see options that allow users to configure the tweak.

I’ve been using DathBanners Lite for a while and it works nicely as advertised. The tweak also makes your notification banners more appealing.

If you’re interested to get your hands on the tweak, it is available as a free download in Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Let us know what you think about the tweak once you’ve given it a try.
