nice! looking forward to the new features...always wanted something like this on my ipad...live tiles would be awesome!

Well then, time for yet another update! iMetro Update 6: Live Twitter and Facebook Tiles!
The Twitter tile will read from your News Feed. This is the list of people that you are following so it acts like a real news feed! It also shows the avatar of the person that tweeted, and has epic slide animations. Facebook tile reads from your own notifications as thats the only information Facebook allow you to retrieve, as far as I know. If anyone knows how to get Photos and News Feed for Facebook then please, do kindly let me know.

Wow nice progress, Im using and loving the theme, i can't wait for the new features plus animations, great work keep it up!
any eta on the next beta?

This is really an outstanding job you've done. Are you planning on allowing the theme to be flipped the other way (i.e. to use with a Smart Cover), or is there a way to do this?Reminding you all that YOU'RE ≠ YOUR

I agree with the above post. Would love to be able to flip this.

@Linkandzelda I see my name is featured in one of the videos.
HA HA HA! The iMetro Update 6 Live Twitter @ Facebook tile.
Seems to be going well this theme of yours.
Come on MSN later I have some questions to ask.

Of course, due to this the theme will be flippable in the near future using the Charms menu.
Well, I was supposed to post this at the same time as the last vid, but I forgot! Here it is Update 6.5: Live Email Tile!
This is one of my favourite tiles yet! It brings in all your latest Emails with beautiful animations! If you didn't spot it I also added a small animation to the Facebook tile, as well as a startup animation for them.
Calendar, Weather and Flipboard Live Tiles left to go now!

Hey, awesome update. I've been plowing thru my icons and they are looking pretty sweet. Is there going to be an option where you can set it as a small title or large title. Some of my icons are large titles but i can't quite figure out how to make them large. I have sifted thru the plist and figure out how to change out the large ones with other apps just I don't know how to move the large title areas and add new ones. Don't know if you could point me in the right direction. thanks!

Didn't want to say this but I thought I would let people know. I worked out that, unless I'm missing something it will be impossible for a user to edit the size of a tile, and also to be able to assign their own apps to large tiles from within the theme. So I'm going to make an app called iMetro Manager, which will allow people to add and delete tiles, move apps, set app, change the sizes of tiles and set your own icons for large tiles. Think of it as a preview or "iMetro Builder". The thing I didn't decide yet though, should this be an iOS app or something on the computer... What do you guys think?
Also, I'm very eager to see anyone else's icons they made as well . Perhaps post some screenshots of what people have done with the theme like wallpapers and new icons/colours and stuff would be awesome!
02-15-2012, 08:06 PM #36Icons that I have done so far today.
well here is zip of all the icons i have done today...
Icon Set for Imetro
Really diggin this theme. Also, diggin thru the code to add more app spots and making large and small icon adjustments. If anyone needs help with that i could make a video explaining what i did... until the Imetro manager is ready.

ETA on 07 as I have not done anything today on the theme due to work and stuff. Live Flipboard and Calendar tiles planned. Then 08 Live Weather. 09 final tweaks/additions and then hopefully 10 which is version 1.00 the initial release build. Now it might sound far off but you guys should know how quick I make stuff I could have version 1.00 done by tomorrow night!
Can I ask people to test the Personalize menu extensively like different combinations of the Username menu and the Personalize menu. I have a feeling there's a bug and want to get rid of it for 1.00.
