    Hello everyone.
    First let me start by saying I have no clue how to make tweaks for Cydia. We all get random ideas sometimes, and in this case, I need to share mine.
    I have an idea for a tweak for iOS 7+ that I'd like to share: animated icons. I've searched around for tweaks that allow your icons to be animated, but I have not found any. My idea of animated icons is that each individual app icon gets its own animation, but remains the same design. For example, the "Messages" app found stock on all iPhones will remain the same old flat green tile with a white chat bubble, but to spice it up and make it more lively, why not add an animation that makes the chat bubble bounce or jiggle a little bit? And when you get a notification, instead of a red dot appearing by the app, why not have the app pulse or jiggle every so often?
    I think this would be a great addition, so here's some further details.

    Messages - The messages icon's chat bubble will either jiggle or bounce (Why not have an option to toggle either or?)
    Safari - The safari icon's compass could rotate and such
    Mail - The mail icon's envelope could have an animation of it opening and having a little paper go inside
    Phone - The phone icon's phone could wiggle a little or have little vibration accents coming off of it
    Camera - The camera icon's camera, where the center circle is, could open and close like an actual lens of a camera
    Photos - The photo icon's rainbow ovals could rotate or something
    Settings - The settings icon's gears could rotate
    Music - The music icon's note could wiggle around a bit, making a almost dancing motion

    I'm pretty sure you all understand what I'm talking about by now. Could someone PLEASE make a tweak like this??

    You could try posting your tweak idea to http://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/ and see what people say. I personally think it would be a huge battery drain but that's just me.

    Well, obviously it would affect your battery. Some people don't mind what price they pay for customization.
