It is the best customization tool out on Cydia and can pretty much do everything that you would like for a customization tool to do. With all the different categories taken care of you shouldn’t have to go through Cydia to find to many other apps to help get your device to where you want it. Springtomize 2 is worth purchasing and will save you money in the long run.

Review

With this tweak you can do everything that you need to do. It is by far the most useful tweak to download when you first jailbreak your device and think about theming. It will save you money in the long run if you were to try and find all the premium features that were on Cydia and purchase them separately. It is worth the $2.99 and definitely will make you theming experience that much easier.
