    Hi, a year ago I switched to Android after being a long time blackberry user. Last week I bought my first iphone and am loving it so far. Unlike most people, I absolutely love IOS7, and switched to iphone because I thought IOS7 looked gorgeous compared to OS6.

    Having said that, there is something that bugs me. Is there any way to change the font color on the home screen? The white text makes it impossible to use any light colored backgrounds. I can't imagine Apple would forget such an important thing as color contrast and readability, so there must be some setting that I haven't found.

    I have gone to Accessibility and changed the text to bold, but frankly it doesn't solve the problem. I don't want my text bolded, I like it thin, but I just want to change it to black or some other dark color.

    I also tried searching the forum for solutions, but search terms like text, color, etc give me too many hits. :) Thanks in advance!

    Only option for you is if you use SOME light coloured backgrounds it can change the text to black but if I remember rightly that only works on white and some light shades of grey, I could be wrong though.

    The last 6 gradient stills in the backgrounds list use black text, well maybe not the white one.. But the rest for sure.
