  • Theme of the Week 6/29 - 7/6


    Taking a look at all the good themes that came out in Cydia this week, we feel that FrameD by Miket25 has the most to offer in terms of detail and design characteristics. Take a look at some of the screenshots below:



    FrameD is hosted in the ModMyi repository for a cost of $1.99. After purchasing it, you will be able to enable it from WnterBoard and see iOS in a whole new way. The theme focuses on icons and important interface elements by closing them in with black frames – hence the name, FrameD. One of our favorite parts is the battery icon, which looks great on the lock screen while your device is being charged. FrameD themes a ton of things, from application icons, to lock screen elements, to badges. It puts a custom background in the multitasking App Switcher and within folders. Because of the way the theme frames all your application icons, it doesn't matter what applications you have since they are all framed with the theme's characteristics. All stock application icons are given a new look within the black frames. We like that the theme is both simplistic and easy on the eyes. If you haven't checked this theme out yet, it is worth the time to take a peek at.

    Honorable Mentions

    Apart from this week’s winner, we would also like to mention a couple of other themes that were released this week, which are also impressive.

    The first one: Helium HD by maustincoulter.



    Helium HD is hosted on the ModMyi repository for a cost of $2.99. Helium HD has an entirely unique appearance that themes every application icon with a frame-like appearance. Helium HD will theme lock screen elements, navigation interfaces, the status bar, SpringBoard icons, and Notification Center. It doesn't actually change any of the icons other than the frame it makes around them. The theme is centered around a blue and black theme and brings out a dark appearance; it looks best with a darker wallpaper. It themes a lot more elements than most themes, so it is certainly worth taking a look at if you're into making your iOS device unrecognizable from the stock look.

    The second one: Aquelo HD by Primo.TM.



    Aquelo HD is hosted on the ModMyi repository for a cost of $2.50. Aquelo HD changes all your icons to look rounder and badges are given the opposite treatment – they look more square. Aquelo HD themes lock screen elements, navigation interfaces, the status bar, SpringBoard icons, Notification Center, and even includes a loading page for each application as you launch it. The loading screen seems like more of an advertisement for the theme than a loading page, but it makes up for that in appearance. The icons are all replaced with a more detailed icon that will add to the beauty of the theme. It also includes two widgets – a weather widget on the home screen and an Apple on the lock screen. Important parts of iOS are definitely emphasized by this theme and it's worth a look.

    Be sure to catch up with next week's best theme only on ModMyi!

      If you mean theme icons that aren't themed you can use either iconharvester(premium app):



      Or iconmaker(free):

      Slapping a border around an icon along with a few color tweaks is NOT a theme! Why do all of these 'developers' constantly go for the squared, shiny look? It's not attractive by any means, and charging $2 - 3 dollars for something already available is a joke. Have some originality, put some HARD WORK into actually designing a new concept, THEN charge for something that's DIFFERENT.

      Can you please post a screenshot of where the 'thank you' button is ? So glad the subject was spoken of because I have sent
      Modmyi the question but have yet to receive a response.

      You mentioned "by hitting the big thanks button" however, I can't find it. Another person said 'must be mobile', does this mean
      if I am on my iphone viewing modmyi, the 'thank you' button will not be available?

      I appreciate your time and thanking you in advance

      3 - Azure
      Azure: Great Winterboard Theme for iPhone
      Wow !! thanks for posting ! The first one is wicked but in chinese and Im afraid to download however, knowing me I will give it a shot

      The second and third I would love to have but I am running on 5.1.1 version iPhone 4S and I get the message "unable to purchase,,,,it is not known whether this product is supported on your ios version. we are waiting t hear back from the vendor" I had seen Azure a few months ago and sent Monty three messages but never received a response. I will try sending a mesaage to the vendor for Appleton. These are the types of winterboard themes I like alot,,, the ones with color,, not too much of a fan of the dark themes ones.

      I would click on the 'thank you button' however, I don't know where it is,, sent a few messages to modmyi but no response,,,, Thank you so much !!
