Cydia Tweak: Give iOS 7's Keyboard A New Look With BlueBoard
Are you tired of having a bland keyboard on your iOS 7 device? Well, a new Cydia tweak called BlueBoard adds a blue theme to the keyboard keys throughout iOS 7. BlueBoard won't change a lot, but it's just enough to liven up the keyboard. Once installed, you'll need to launch the Settings app to enable the tweak and respring the device. I'm not sure why it's necessary to have an entire preference pane dedicated to an enable switch, but it may be helpful to some people. Like I mentioned above, this tweak affects both types of keyboard present in iOS 7. When enabled, you'll end up with the standard light keyboard with blue keys or the dark keyboard with blue keys.

Bloard is another simple (and free) tweak that will enable the dark iOS 7 keyboard system-wide. If you're looking for more custom colors, you may want to check out a complete iOS 7 colorizing tweak called Fancy. Currently, BlueBoard is available in the BigBoss repository for free and is compatible with iOS 7 or higher.
