A new way to customize your notifications

Note: The latest version does not support iOS/iPadOS 13.3.x but you can downgrade to Velvet version 1.4.

Velvet is the notification tweak you were waiting for. Simple, yet highly customizable. Individually customize banners, lockscreen notifications and media player without needing to respring – ever.

Two different appearances with a ton of options

The modern Velvet appearance removes the notification header for a more minimal appearance while the classic iOS appearance keeps it and let’s you customize it. Both appearances offer you a big variety of options to customize your notifications to make them fit your setup.

See your contact pictures at a glance

The latest Velvet update allows you to replace the app icon with a picture of your contact (and optionally display an additional small version of the app icon). This feature is currently available for iMessage (single chats) and WhatsApp (single and group chats).

Simple, yet highly customizable

Whether you prefer manually tweaking every bit of the settings or just want a clean look right after installation, Velvet has you covered. Every single setting is easy to understand and can be mixed with almost any other settings for a unique look.

The colors you deserve

Want some color in your life? Velvet offers you the possibility to color the background, the borders, indicators and more in the color of the App Icon! If you don’t like the automatic color, you can also manually select a color for each element to create the perfect setup that fits right in with the rest of your phone.
