MagicLabels – Colorize your Apps and Folder Labels

iOS users who use jailbroken devices have the opportunity of customizing and theming their iOS devices to stand out from the crowd. There are a lot of tweaks in Cydia that help you do that. From the Control Center and App Switcher to the icons, you can customize a lot of iOS elements. And if you are looking for a tweak to customize the icon labels as well, there’s a new tweak for it.

Called MagicLabels, this new jailbreak tweak lets you colorize the folder and app icon labels in iOS individually as per your choice. The tweak allows you to play around with colors and set different colors for different labels.


  • With MagicLabels, you can customize the color of the icon label of any individual folder or app icon on the Home screen.
  • You get to set up a multi-tone color scheme, a two-tone color scheme, or a random selection of colors as per your preference.magiclabels-preferences_3
  • After you have installed MagicLabels on your iOS device, the preferences pane for the tweak will get added to the stock Settings app. You can go to the preferences to configure the colors of your folder and app icon labels. magiclabels-preferences
  • There are separate sections in the preferences and the options are divided in those sections. You can turn on the tweak or turn it off completely. You can choose the base color, the text color, and the background color or shadow color as well. magiclabels-preferences_2
  • There’s a Save button in the preferences pane which, when tapped, resprings your iOS device and applies the changes you made in the prefences.

There are a couple of things in the MagicLabels tweak that still need some important finishing touches. It seems that some of the Home screen animations show a bit of lag when the tweak is used, probably due to the drop shadows that are applied along with the custom animations. We also hope that the developer adds more options to the tweak in the future, like animating the labels and making more use of them in different manner.

MagicLabels is Free to Download from Cydia and is a must-try for all those who love customizing their iOS devices to extreme ends. The tweak can especially help if you are looking to color-match the labels with your theme. Do note that the tweak has been tested on iOS 9 and on iPod Touch and iPhones only, so we don’t know whether or not it will run on iPads. If it works on your iPad, let us know in the comments below.
