For the iPhone and iPod touch
Now available on Cydia and iThemeSky!
Vertigo is a theme meant to make navigating your iPhone an easier and more fun experience. Through a combination of large slick icons, an easy to use interface, and a high degree of customization, navigating your phone will be easy, and look good. This theme goes for the large barred icons look. There are 5 icons per page, which you scroll through vertically (hence the name Vertigo ), and an 'extras' bar at the bottom. The bottom bar has 6 buttons (Phone, SMS, Edit function, Switch themes, Weather Config, Settings) which you can switch between, with a smooth transition animation, by pressing the center 'home' button.
Lockscreen & Widgets
Vertigo features a slick, but simple, lockscreen. The lockscreen features a large analog clock widget, weather widget, and an animated weather widget. Outside of the lockscreen, there are 2 widgets. There is a live digital clock widget on the clock icon, and a weather widget on the weather icon. Just swipe the lockscreen upwards to unlock.
Don't like Dreamboard lockscreens, and don't like to edit the code yourself? No problem, there is an already modified plist in the 'Extras' folder which you can just replace the original one with. (Make sure you also delete the 'current.plist'!)
The third page has an icon to bring up the folder selection. When the folder icon is pressed, the main icons slide to the left, and the folder icons slide in from the right. There are currently 4 folders (Games, Utilities, Social, Media) which can each hold 20 icons.
Customization & Setup
I believe that one of the most essential parts of a theme, is customization. When you first start up Vertigo, you are greeted with a Setup Menu that guides you through the easy process of customizing your theme.
In the Setup Menu you can:
- Choose how many pages to be in your main scroll view. (Anywhere between 3 and 10 pages)
- Choose to either use the default wallpaper, or pick your own wallpaper through the settings menu like you would if you were using stock iOS. (Notice: The custom wallpaper option only works on iOS 4 at the moment)
- Choose what unit the current temperature will be displayed to you in. (Choose either Fahrenheit or Celsius)
- Choose what format the live clock widget will display the time in. (Choose either 12 or 24 Hours)
- Choose what icon set the weather widget will use for displaying the current weather in. (You can choose the Default icons, the ones used in most other themes, or the matte set of weather icons)
You can return to the Setup Menu at any time by pressing the home button on the bottom bar until you see the 'Setup' button slide in. Just press it and you will return to the Setup Menu.
Currently there are icons for 82 different Applications, including all of the stock applications, with full support forbadges. All the icons are available in HD and SD. I will be taking icon requests here and try to create any icon you desire . I have also provided an easy to use Icon Template PSD in the Extras folder.
Price and Purchasing
You can purchase Vertigo and all it's future updates for $1.99 now on Cydia and iThemeSky. You must be using an iDevice for the Cydia link to work.

Nice setup. Looks like a sharper, brighter version of Bluemetal's Evolution HD.

Very nice! Looks kinda like a mix of dream and evolution to me. Very nice job! Where do we donate and how much!?!?

This looks really good! Really sharp, love the colour and the lockscreen.
I take it that yours is a dreamboard version?
Edit: Never mind. It's obviously for dreamboard on the pc browser. Looking at the theme on the MMi app it's not so obvious.

Do the bar icons scroll up and down or is it 4 per page?

A video would definitely help showcase this when ever you get time. I can't wait to see what this bad boy looks like on my device.

Updated first post with new screenshots.
The new screenshots show new icons, badges, different dock buttons, and a clock widget on the clock icon. The clock widget can be switched between 24 hours and 12 hours through the setup menu. The dock buttons alternate (with a smooth animation) by pressing the home button in between them.
