Ok, installing this app made me a little nervous. By the time I was on the fourth pop-up, during the Install process, I was beginning to think that maybe I should have read the more info!! However, everything turned out ok. Not only that but, I feel very 2.0ish. A few days ago I wrote a post about another app, Installer to AppStore, and I said it might make those of you getting antsy for the release of version 2.0 feel a little closer to that June day. Well, if you are one of those antsy people, this could help even more! Visualize 2.0 changes your Calculator, Installer, and iTunes icons to the 2.0 version of the icons. It also changes your Installer to say AppStore instead of Installer.
It also makes your iPhone think that it is version 2.0. So, if you go into your Settings/General/About, it will say your have version 2.0. Now, this is where we run into problems. Because your iPhone thinks that it is version 2.0 the Installer will not install some applications. However, there is a fix for this. You just need to install the Visualize 2.0 Version Number Fix. After installing the Version Number Fix, you can go into your Settings/General/About and it will say your current version again (example, I’m on 1.1.4 so it is back to saying 1.1.4) and the Installer will function like normal. I am actually very surprised by this app. I was expecting a thrown together, slightly buggy app but it is very well implemented. Visualize 2.0 and Visualize 2.0 Version Number Fix are available through the Apple Daily Times source.
Note: I was able to uninstall both the app and the fix with no problem at all. It went right back to how my iPhone was before the installation (though, that was just a test…I went back in and reinstalled them!!)
Note 2: I almost forgot…you also get this cool splashscreen when you open Installer (after you have installed the app) and it also changes the installer to theme. Which is cool.
Note 3: (Sorry about all the notes!) You will not see an icon on your SpringBoard for either of these installs.
