Called MagicLabels, the tweak lets you colorize your folder and app icon labels individually to your choice or colors. You can choose any color for any app or folder icon label according to your taste or feelings.


  • MagicLabels lets you modify the color of all the individual app and folder icon labels on the Home screen of your iPhone or iPod touch. It allows you to set a two-tone color or a multi-tone color scheme, or you can even choose a random array of colors. magiclabels-preferences_3
  • Once you have installed MagicLabels, you will find its preferences pane in the stock Settings app. From there, you can configure the colors for the app and folder icon labels. magiclabels-preferences
  • The preferences include a toggle to turn the tweak on or off. There’s also an option to set a base color, after which you get the option to choose from eight individual color cells. magiclabels-preferences_2
  • You need to individually customize each cells according to the color and apps or folders you want to color. It might take some time to get around this feature, but it is really very easy once you get the hang of it.

  • There’s a Save button in the preferences pane of MagicLabel. You must tap this button to save the changes you have made. Your device will respring on tapping this button, and after rebooting, you will see that the changes have taken place.
