Photicon Cydia Tweak Dynamically Replaces Photos app icon

Again we talk about interesting Cydia tweaks that are coming to iOS 10. Earlier we informed you about OnceMore, a tweak that allows us to control the countdown of our iPhone directly from the lock screen.

This time we talk about a tweak that allows us to change the Photos application icon. The icon changes according to your latest capture that you take with your iPhone. This tweak will replace the Photos app icon with the latest snap you take.


This is a cool tweak for users who like to change icons of applications without having to use different themes. This might as well be one of the missing tweaks to complete your iOS 10 customization.

Once installed, Photicon offers adjustments to be like blur level, blur style (light or dark). In addition, it also allows you to choose the album from which you want the image to be displayed in the Photos application. This feature is ideal for users who prefer to display a picture of their family, children, etc.

Here’s the Photicon Cydia tweak in action below.

This last setting avoids “surprise” photos that you do not want to see on your springboard. Moreover, it is the last date of the selected file that will be displayed.

If the result you offer is not satisfactory or we do not want other people who can access our iPhone can see what our last capture was, we can add an effect that blurs the image of the icon.

For the uninitiated, you must have a working jailbreak on your device to use this tweak.

Photicon is available for download for free via BigBoss repo on Cydia. It is fully compatible with iOS 10.
