Icon0matic Brings Back iOS 6 Icon Shadows To Your App Icons

Icon0matic is a Cydia tweak developed by Anthony Cornell that brings back the iOS 6 shadows on icons. With the release of iOS 7 came the disappearance of icon shadows for a flatter look, but Icon0matic brings back these shadows and allows you to customize them to your heart’s desire.

Of the many options within the tweak, you can decide to shadow your icons identical to how they were shadowed in iOS 6 or create a new experience entirely. iFans forum member laze was able to create a great comparison so you can see the difference been icons with shadows and without. Although its only a subtle difference, having app shadows does make icons stand out much better.

    I think the first picture is not real. It seems very blurred especially on icon name. It is not that bad without ıcon0matic.
