ColorBanners 2 adds a splash of color to your notification banners

When iOS 10 launched, there was quite a bit of gasping at the appearance of the new notification banner style throughout the operating system, including those that appear in apps, on the Lock screen, and in Notification Center.

With jailbreak tweak ColorBanners 2, you will be able to colorize the banner and other notification alerts to reflect the color of the app’s icon. The app automatically analyzes the app’s icon, then applies the dominant color on the icon to that app’s notification alerts. In addition to adding the color of app’s icon you can also remove the color from the notification and only keep the blur effect, or add a gradient of your choice.
By default, the tweak is designed to colorize your notification banners based on the dominant color(s) of the app icon of the app that’s giving you the notification:
On the other hand, if you don’t want to set it up that way, you don’t have to. The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can configure your banner notifications to be any color you wish.

In each pane, you can enable or disable the tweak’s effects separately for each interface. You can also:
  • Toggle the color gradient
  • Choose to use a custom color or the dominant app icon color
  • Configure the background alpha level
  • Toggle white text on or off
  • And more…
 If you’re interested in trying ColorBanners 2, it’s available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository today for $0.99. ColorBanners 2 is compatible only with jailbroken iOS 10 devices, but the original ColorBanners tweak can be installed on iOS 8-9 devices if you happen to have one of those instead.
