Eclipse is a new Cydia tweak that bring system-wide NightTime mode to iOS 7 ( just like iBook’s Night theme or Tweetbot ). Although it has its flaws, this tweak is perfect for people that uses their iPhones in bed or a dark room, when your device’s display is burning your retinas even with the screen brightness at its lowest setting.
Once installed, you need to go to Eclipse’s dedicate preference pane in Settings.app to turn it on and then kill all of your open apps ( you might want to use Purge for that ). In addition to the on/off toggle, the dedicated preference pane offers the options to darken wallpapers, enable orange tint and darken UIViews ( experimental section ).
When choosing to darken the wallpapers the tweak forces lighter wallpaper to take on a darker tint while enabling orange tint turns all of iOS’ blue buttons and text to orange.
If you decide to turn on the ‘darken UIViews’ option you will run into some issues, the biggest one being the Calendar.app. It simply looks horrible. But it’s an experimental option and there’s always room for improvement in future updates.
Take a look at the video below to better understand this tweak, and if you decide to give it a try, Eclipse is available for $0.99 on Cydia Store via BigBoss repo…
