Iconrenamer Lets You Rename Your Icons In iOS (Cydia Tweak)

Jailbreaking has most definitely made the apple products really customizable. A lot is made of the lack of ability to personalise your iPhone, in fact it is a closed world where you don’t really have much options to sit and edit things your way. Cydia tweaks are the only way that we have on hand to sit and change the way our phone is. So, here is another interesting tweak called iconrenamer.

A typical iPhone or iPad for that matter has icons decorated over the springboard and there is the application name which is present underneath the application. However what if you wish to change the names of these icons, for example i want to call the messaging application as texts cause that is what i call it and its then easier as i would register immediately that this is the texting application. However in the native IOS world there is no way to do this unless you are jail broken, so yes to use this tweak you need to have cydia working on your iPhone or iPad.

It’s very easy to get this tweak. All you have to do is follow these steps:

1) Go to Cydia and in the search bar type in iconrenamer.

2) Download the tweak and let your springboard respring.

3) No new icon is added to your springboard so do not look for it.

4) Tap on the application whose name you wish to change and keep it pressed till you enter the jiggle mode, pressing the application once again will pop up a window and you would be able to enter the name  you wish to give the application.

This is a fun tweak yet extremely useful as you would be adding a new personalised touch to your device.
