Facebook app is really improved now on iOS, Android and even a mobile version of our favorite social network in browsers. It’s sleek and fast. But, wouldn’t you like to have customized Facebook app, as you like! Sounds cool isn’t it? That’s the fun of jailbreaking an iPhone, iPod or iPad.
Blake Sheppard of Greensnow has developed this really cool jailbreak tweak which allows customizing the look & transitions, animations of an official Facebook app available on iTunes Store.
The fun part is – you can make Facebook app full-screen, hide side navigation bar, use any of the 15 different animations. There are no icons added upon installations. You can try various options available under Settings > Customize Facebook.
Customize Facebook tweak is available for FREE on modmyi repo; so, you can simply search on Cydia & install it iPhone, iPod or iPad. However, there are few limitations for Facebook app on iPad.
Customizing size for photo albums, hiding bottom toolbar, and animation effects are not yet available on iPad. Also, most of the customizations work without quitting Facebook app except: Hiding top navigation, sidebar size, disabling pull to refresh or always pull to refresh. Don’t miss the demo video below.

I would really like to see be able to change Facebook’s blue color, splash screen logo screen to something else. Sometimes, it feels good to see Facebook in different color than the blue.
