Getting bored of those stock red circle icon badges in iOS? Look no further. Badgomizer is a new Cydia Tweak that allows users to customize app icon badges to the fullest extent.

Within the Settings of Badgomizer, users have the option to change things like the shape, color, transparency, and even position of icon badges. The color option gives the ability to choose a custom color using either RGB sliders or choose from one of the multiple presets. One of the presets even automatically changes the color of the badges to somewhat match the color of the app icon.

Users may also choose the transparency preset so that the wallpaper and app icon can be more visible, or choose a custom opacity within the same menu. As far as shapes go, Badgomizer gives five options; the default circle, square, triangle, hexagon, and star. After figuring out how the badge should appear, users can set the position and rotation sliders to their liking.

Badgomizer is a great Tweak to have if you're into themes and need a little bit extra to make the layout of your iOS device perfect. The Tweak can be found in the Cydia Store under the BigBoss repo for $1.49.
