    To be completely honest, I was not planning on making a new theme for quite some time - I just did not have the motivation. I lost motivation to continue NeoStyle 2.0 because there really wasn't much room for improvement compared to what was being released at the time.

    So I had decided on simply modding current themes when I get the chance to... until I saw this video:

    YouTube - Microsoft Locus OS Concept !! somanyphones.com

    I was spellbound! The idea of an interface that is designed on your location. I find myself always using certains apps at home that are different from the apps that I may use at school or work. I HAD to try and bring this idea to the iPhone.

    I hope seeing the video above, you guys can get as excited as I am. There are many obstacles - especially in regards to the theme setup; but I am confident that the final product will be something TRULY unique.

    The theme will center around the idea of having "multiple desktops". The homepage will an overview of the 6 available desktops: Home, Work, Study, Travel, Media, Settings



    Upon selecting a desktop, you'll be presented with the following screen - in this example, it is the "Work" desktop:



    The current idea is to have each of these options to be Categories (of course, preferably CategoriesSB - as it is blindingly fast). Towards the bottom-right of the screen is a global Stacks for your most used apps such as Phone, Messages, etc. The bottom-left is the springjump back to the Desktops page. For even easier navigation between desktops, the user can select another desktop page towards the top of the screen.

    These desktops have plenty of room for widgets. And the theme will be automatically installed via KATS and C-KATS. The icons of the theme is slated to be auto-created.

    So far, the graphics emulate LOCUS OS - this is because I want to focus on the actual navigation. The graphics may be different in the final product.

    Hopefully this will give you guys a better idea of what I'm trying to accomplish. Feedback is greatly encouraged, whether positive or negative. Also I'm hoping to get some feedback to the following questions:
    • What widgets would you guys like to see implemented into this theme?
    • Do you feel the CategoriesSB integration a downfall for the theme?
    • Are you worried about the setup time?
    • If you can have a different desktop than those mentioned above, what would it be?
    • What folders would you like to see under the desktops metioned above?
    • If the setup is relatively easy, and the navigation proves to be very intuitive, what is the likelihood that you'll be using this theme for a prolong period of time?

    Thanks,
    K



    I'll be trying out several ideas in order to ease theme setup and content organization - CategoriesSB, Springjumps,
    wow cant wait.

    Wow! Looks great! Do you think you can incorporate a weather widget? And maybe you can make categories sb optional, and standard categories required?

    Yeah, that's what I meant to infer. Standard Categories required, CategoriesSB recommended. Weather widget will be incorporated but optional.

    I was going for an effect similar to the one in this video at 1:26 (Select Character Screen)

    YouTube - Marvel vs Capcom 2: New age of heroes for Playstation Network & Xbox Live Arcade Gamespot footage

    But it didn't loop! I could just do a vWallpaper, but that'd be lazy and wouldn't look as clean. Ah well, maybe in the future.
    well, if anyone can do it, u can ...and yes, there is always the future! the iPhone modding community isn't going anywhere

    Wow, I go to bed and you edit your first post to add all that new stuff! Fantastic concept, I loved looking at the video, is that on an ipod/iphone orginially? It looks so much like one.
    I would love to see the widget style used at the start of the video, having them big and informative is fantastic. I can really see the applications for this on the iPhone/touch.
    Now Im even more excited for this to come out!

    LOCUS OS was part of a competition for the next-gen Microsoft mobile OS. It lost.

    LOCUS OS has some inspiration from iPhone OS and Zune.

    this concept sounds amazing. Though I was wondering if you would be able to have different widgets on a different pages, when it comes to repitition. e.g. for media and e.g. Home i would like to have an ipod widget to start. In case you could manage to have e.g. ipod on different pages - NOT in the dock - this would be amazing.
    I would definately use this for a LONG time. A page for Living room would be awesome to have all remote apps at onbe place - put nicely together...
    so my favourite desks would be:
    - Work (weather widget, time / date / calendar / todo
    - Home (weather (different town) / time -date / AppStore
    - Media with all music and video stuff
    - Livivng room ( place for remotes)
    - onthego (nav apps and these things like around me)
    - Leisure (games)
    - Internet
    - Messages

    Phone / sms / email should be available through dock though

    I would love to assist in simpler graphics - without any credits - just to get a working concept soon...so u see I am VERY amazed on this

    This theme would be amazing. I would definitely use it for a long time. It just looks really clean and nice. If you need help with any graphics, I know my way around photoshop pretty well, so let me know. This will be awesome!
