Change is fun and it is part of our lives, including our phone. And a way to do that is changing your theme for the iOS7 jailbreak. This is the easiest method and it’s comfortable to do that. But why stop here? Why not thinking at something new, exciting to customize your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch?
Did somebody think at this kind of thing? Of course. The creativity is endless and this time its name is Icon Masks and it is awesome.
How does it work?
A file replacement extension for iOS, called Winterboard, helps you to see this change. Actually, it installs several Icon Masks which make your life more beautiful, getting rid of monotony. On your screen, every day, can appear another shape like the sea, star, different kinds of squares, circle, eye, guitar and so forth.
But actually, what does it do? Your screen will get some extra flare. You might have some fun playing with all sorts of shapes if you want to choose to install the greatest theme for Winterboard. Let’s take an example: a hexagonal mask. And suddenly, your phone screen will become magical. Take a look at the screenshots above, to see the vintage mask, on the left side, and the cloud mask, on the right side.
For now, Icon Masks tweak is at the beginning and it has, also, disadvantages. For instance, only the screen can be modified. If you want to apply the same thing to folders or to Calendar, you’ll have to be patient, because, for the moment, this is not available. But, for sure, it’s just a matter of time until the designers will find a way to satisfy the costumers’ desires.

How can you get this Icon Masks ? First of all, this is developed by ideaprison and you can get it for free on Cydia in the default ModMyi archive.
