I was scrolling through Google+ just now and stumbled across this interesting post by Mike R – who is not following me even though he should be – where he shows off an awesome blue virtual keyboard on his iPhone.
Naturally, I thought you couldn't get that without a jailbreak and, sure enough, I found the tweak on Cydia. It’s called BlueBoard and you’ll find it in the BigBoss repository.
“Okay this blue Keyboard is great. Looks even better in person,” writes Mike.
Mike’s post made me realize that Apple would make a lot of people happy by just including a handy option to change the color of your keyboard. They should do it in iOS 8, as a sign of good will.
And yes, I know they care about their color palettes over there in Cupertino but, frankly, so do we. Who says I can’t have a mauve keyboard over a green background?
