Round and Round – WinterBoard Theme

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

round & round roundandround3 Round and Round is a theme that consists of transparent round icons. Unlike the popular Glass Orb theme, Round and Round adds a bit of color with a colored graphic inside of each transparent circle. Honestly, I feel like I have seen these icons before but, I can’t come up with the name of the theme so maybe they are just similar to another theme’s icons. Round and Round only contains the basic 16 icons and a Cydia icon (no iTunes and App Store icons with this one), a dock and a wallpaper. However, the wallpaper is a little too crazy for me…I went with a plain black wallpaper. You can get Round and Round via the iSpazio source. [Read more…]

Safety Not Guaranteed – WinterBoard Theme

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Safety Not Guaranteed safetynotguarenteed2 Safety Not Guaranteed is a clear icon theme. I personally love clear icons because I can change my wallpaper and feel like I have a whole new theme! This clear icon set is actually a little different than most…it has a design to it. Most transparent icon themes tend to just be the stock icons…but see-through. The theme contains a dock, wallpaper, status bar, 128 icons and a few UI mods. I did find that I had a little bit of trouble getting the theme to work correctly with the LiveClock and WeatherIcon mods. In order for it to look correct, you can either disable both mods (using the LiveClock Disabled and No Weather Icon mods) or you can move your preferred weathericon and liveclock mods above the Safety Not Guaranteed theme in WinterBoard. You can get this theme via the iSpazio source [Read more…]

iBlank – Easily Create Blank Icons

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

iBlank iBlank is an application that allows you to easily create blank/transparent icons. This is ideal for custom modding. I know Doug uses a blank icon under Stack on his dock. It is also nice for lining up your icons exactly how you would like them or use with certain themes. Here is how the app works.

When you open iBlank, you will get the main screen which contains instructions on how to use the application. All you need to do, if you would like to create a blank icon, is select the Create Blank Icon button at the bottom of the page. You will then get a pop-up saying that the icon has been successfully created. Select OK and then hit your Home Button. Your iPhone will respring and you will have a blank icon on your SpringBoard. If you are having trouble finding your blank icon, just make your icons wiggle (tap and hold any icon until they all start wiggling). You can then find it because you will see a space with an x in the top left corner but no icon. [Read more…]
