    Yup. Aside from Coda 2, all of Panic's stuff is just top notch. Pricey, but oh so worth it.

    There is always going to be a rift between people that don't like change. These new updates have seen quite a large disparity between those people. It seems the majority like the new icons, but I have gotten tweets and emails with users who didn't. As the French say, c'est la vie.

    As for the process behind the design, CB has a good grasp of the situation. It's not that every icon has to be muted, or loud for that matter to be part of a whole. And it's also not the case that you can't mix and match. Compare Apple's native FaceTime icon with their Messages icon. Both are along the same vein in regards to functionality, but both communicate it very differently in their design choices.

    When it comes to designing something that's already been done (I'm just re-interpreting Apple's work after all), it's often the conundrum of whether or not to step outside of their shadow, or happily live there. Sometimes there are other ways to re-interpret the design, other times, they really have produced the best metaphor (like Passbook for example) and it would just be change for the sake of change to deviate. Obviously there are no hard and fast rules to this, but as a designer, you do have to be mindful of such things and tailor your work around the decisions you make.

    And in the end, I'm still maturing as a designer. I get a lot of praise, but I'm by far from this master pixel pusher.

    It's amazing how far some will go and this is what I'm always reminded of. Out of everything you get with Jaku, and aside from having the power to make your own backups, some people still raise such a storm about one single icon out of a couple of hundred :/

    Don't get me wrong, I have no problems with criticism and I don't want to shrug off people's opinions who use Jaku. Obviously saying you hate the new icons doesn't help, but I've revisited icons when I had helpful and constructive criticism before. In fact, I wouldn't have retouched the Game Center icon if I didn't get a tweet saying it was too muted. And it's a good thing because I ended producing a much better final product.

    Lok I love your theme.
    If my sig doesn't state it clearly my phone does.

    It's full of Jaku.

    From Lok's screen to home screen and camera roll to icons in the works.

    Those updates you've been keeping pushing lately are a multitude Santa gifts. I never complained.

    Like I never complained of not being fulfilled with the AppStore metaphor in your icon for it.

    Choices are dictated by so many things. Culture, tastes, what we've been through.

    Apple Stores are very scarce here. I'm sure it's a factor.

    Not having something doesn't make it look the way you want, it also doesn't mean it doesn't look the way it does.
    I've never seen an albino panther in real life but I'd know one if I saw one because I know what they look like.
    Just sayin.

    I think he's saying that the lack of not seeing an apple store is making it difficult to relate to the icon? Could be wrong.

    A factor isn't the whole reason. It's contributive.

    On the topic of seriousness,
    @Lok : did you direct Saurik to the exact UIKit.framework's image names and path directory for the social/share widget which can't get themed through WinterBoard ?

    Nope. I was surprised he was using Jaku to isolate the bug actually. They are in UIKit and the PhotoLibrary framework (PrivateFrameworks). There may also be more, but those are the ones I know about.

    i love all of the new icons; the brightness of the new messages icon gives my homescreen a nice touch
    and i love the texture on the new facebook/reeder icons, very well done in my opinion and very good metaphors for both

    Since the conception of Jaku, I haven't been able to find any other themes to replace it. Since the evasion jailbreak, it was/is Jaku screenshot galore at Deviant Art. The success of this theme lies with the continual commitment to refine, create, redefine, recreate, explore, test, and simply inspiring creators that make it the longest run theme to date out of any theme out there. I simply thank you for your commitment and dedication, all creators. I come in peace.

    Thank you 8lias! "to refine, create, redefine, recreate, explore, test" that is absolutely key. Reworking a million times over is the only way to push quality.
