The Metal Thing – WinterBoard Theme

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

The Metal Thing themetalthing3 The Metal Thing is a pretty cool theme that contains 30 icons, moving wallpaper, dock, status bar, lock background, SMS background, sliders, badges, dialer, calculator…etc. This theme is unique in the fact that it has an “animated” wallpaper. In the center of the wallpaper is a blue sphere…inside the sphere you will get a nice lighting affect every once and a while. The icons also need to be in a specific order around the sphere. The rest of your icons can be placed wherever you would like them. (See screenshots below) I did notice that the animated wallpaper does making the icons a little laggy when in “move” mode however, it doesn’t seem to affect scrolling of SpringBoard pages. You can get The Metal Thing via the modmyi source.

    I really like this theme, looks like a good reason to reinstall Winterboard on my iPhone… :p

  4. This theme is nice and very different BUT it caused my iPhone lots of troubles with applications crashing. Most notable was ipod which would not stay running for more than 30 seconds with this theme active. Maybe it’s the animation but I’m not sure.

  5. very nice love it thanks

  6. I think the theme looks awesome, but all the apps that change on the pictures doesn’t change for me.. Howcome?
