    If you're not a fan of the way the stock iOS 7 keyboard looks, a new free jailbreak tweak called BlueBoard by iOS developer xTheMaster3x will put a blue spin on it by turning the individual keyboard keys blue system-wide, as shown above. The tweak is applied to both the light and dark keyboard in iOS 7, and it doesn't rely on WinterBoard themes to change the colors.

    The tweak does not come with any other color options than blue, as it seems to use the same blue coloring that shows up when you double-tap on the Shift key to enable caps lock.

    If you're using the popular Eclipse jailbreak tweak on your iOS 7 device, you'll be pleased to hear that BlueBoard is fully compatible with the tweak, and that it looks good with it:

    The tweak adds a simple preferences pane to the Settings application where you can easily enable or disable the tweak on demand:

    If you want to download BlueBoard and give it a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository. It requires iOS 7 to be installed.

    Name: BlueBoard
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.0.1-24
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.5
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: xTheMaster3x

    More colors and choices are needed in order to compete with similar keyboard tweaks.

    Lots more colors (and a choice of a different colored keyboard for different apps) and make sure your colored keyboard tweak is lightweight in terms of cpu/battery usage and then charge .99 cents and we will buy it.

    You are better of paying .99 for "Fancy". It's a much better tweak

    ColorKeyboard is a much better tweak with many more options but it doesn't work on 5S/OS 7. Blue Keyboard is free and works fine.
