Paragon tweak brings Windows Phone 8 UI to your iOS 9 device

If you like the look and feel of Windows Phone 8 or you just want to get a feel for the interface on your iOS device then you may want to try out Paragon.

The Paragon tweak that is now available in Cydia allows users to have the Windows Phone look on their iOS 9 powered device. It mimics the rival operating system on iOS in such a way that you can not only fool friends by telling them you are running Windows Phone on your Apple device, but also enjoy the overall UI if you are into it.

With Paragon installed you will be able to have a tile based UI that you can easily customization. You can arrange and resize tiles according to your liking. Paragon also offers live tiles feature for apps like Calendar, Messages, Contacts, App Store and more. With the help of live tiles you can view upcoming events, read latest text messages or see notifications right on the homescreen. In addition to all that Paragon tweak also offers Windows Phone like search, notification banner, Volume HUD and you will be able to download, update and delete apps right from the theme’s interface.


On the Home screen you get the tiled look that Windows 8 is famous for.  There are 3 tiles are are “active” tiles which are the “People”, “Games”, and “Music” tiles. These animate within themselves and brings your springboard a little more life to an otherwise stagnant UI.  The People tile will rotate pictures of your contacts if you have them set. You have the ability to move and change the size of the tiles to a small square, large square, or a large rectangle. This gives you some room for creativity when designing your own custom Home screen.  Just put the tile in wiggle mode like you would do in iOS and an arrow will appear in the bottom right hand corner of the tile, tap it for your desired shape.

If you want to remove a tile, just put it in wiggle mode and tap the pin icon in the top right of tile.  To add a tile to the Home screen, swipe over to your spotlight (swipe to the left) and just tap and hold on an app and it will give you an option to “pin to start”.   Then you can change the size/shape and move it to your desired location.

By pressing the volume rocker, you get a banner at the top that gives allows you to control your music as well as your ringing preference and of course the volume level.  Banners are also themed to match the red tiles as you can see in the picture below.


Unlike before Paragon does not require users to have DreamBoard installed. You can configure the tweak from Settings app. Paragon is available in Cydia for $2.49 and works on iOS 9 as well as iOS 8 devices.
