Apple restricts you to a couple of choices when it comes to UI. Dock backgrounds too are limited to only two options. However, if you have jailbroken your device, of course you are in for some fun!
DockShift is one of the top iOS 7 jailbreak tweaks in terms of UI. Go to Cydia and search for the DockShift. Install it for free and then enable this tweak from the Settings. Go to Settings > DockShift > Choose Style > and Enable.
Enjoy the new dock background. This tweak, however, will not work with iPhone 4 or lower devices.
The very useful Bloard has been introduced for iOS 7 jailbroken devices. Available for free in BigBoss repo in Cydia, Bloard works beautifully as a keyboard for any native and third-party app requiring a keyboard. While iOS 7 default keyboard gives a very clean feel, developers too pair up their apps with whitish keyboards giving the overall look a kinda boring look for some users.
Bloard intends to get rid of that white with some black. It offers users with two options of having a white or a beautiful black keyboard with an easy toggle switch.
