I love the 3rd one quite a bit. I think it goes perfectly with the theme.

Thx! Just got done theming the Ring icons.
I created a Dropbox account and it has 2 psd templates for creating them. You can have square or Circle and have 1,2,3 or 4 rings, depending on your flavor.
Here's the DB account: Login is: [email protected]. Pass is: RotatorWheel

Hey looking good GD, you'll be pleased to know icon customisation is carried through in this update but are loaded and coloured by the UI according to the custom colour set by the user, also at the moment other app icons are tinted to the UI colour but I may depreciate or improve that, I'm undecided.
So this is how you can navigate through all of your apps at the moment, by tapping on the centre node, this interface will also be used for setting node contents but I've got a bit more work to do at the anyway so let me know what you make of it.
Still need to implement a hold - menu - uninstall option which will finally eliminate springboard all together, also got some rewriting to do but hoping to have a stable build at the end of the week

That is sweet! Looking better everyday! Am so stoked to give this a try. Also, how is the memory load at the moment?

The icon thing seems great.
Is there anyway to auto-theme icons like some themes do? Or is that impossible with unique original icons such as these?
Just getting all the icons throughout the phone would be sick.
Like in the settings menu? Having those icons themed too.
06-26-2013, 01:45 AM #232
The "standard" ios icons would come themed. But a mask would really be limited as it only "applies" a layer over the icon. You would have to customize your own. The icon themes I made are PSD layers in the Dropbox account I made for this theme. I provided the pass and account to get to.

I'm working on an auto theme for icons but I'm unsure how is best to go about it at the moment, I'll go through the settings icons since you asked; I'll also theme auxo and bitesms but I'll leave it there I think and do the music app at a later date.
Memory load and battery drain is normal but yesterday it was quite sunny out and I noticed even with the brightness level normal I struggled to see the screen clearly, so I think I need to go back to the drawing board and see what I can do

Finished the basic functionality of the UI so thought I'd upload a little preview
06-28-2013, 09:51 AM #235
Stop teasing!!!!!! Awesome! Love the app removal function. Lower memory load than the DB way.
So, I presume this is going to operate outside of DB as a substrate addon?
Either way, AMAZING!!!!!
Oh I made a subreddit in the reddit community ios themes to broadcast your amazing work. Hope it draws traffic your way!
06-28-2013, 09:57 AM #236
Looks amazing man. Can't wait to try this one out.

Groovy, one thing I noticed and meant to ask; it's great the app placement and delete option is there. But, what if you just want to move it. Is that an option in the context menu, or must it be deleted then placed again else ware?

Hey thanks, I appreciate any sharing of my work about the internet - I could do with the extra coverage, but I'm hoping this update draws a lot of attention when it's released. And yes theme is a substrate addon that just uses dreamboard for loading and unloading, other than that it doesn't actually use db at all.
With regards to moving the icons around, it is going to be implemented but as I said so far it's only basic functionality - I've just added notifications to appear on the apps list and I need to design a nice notification display on the nodes themselves. I need to add a move function but you can also change the app the node links to now.
Extra features in the works includes optional sound effects, since I've had several requests from NGUI3 users, still need to implement the radial menu and datastore nodes but I've found a nice framework to use for datastore so that shouldn't take too long. The radial menu needs to be completely reimplemented however - I should be able to get it to respond to circular motion this time instead of just up and down, I also plan on implementing a clock and also have lines drawn between the nodes linking them together.
After all that is done and I have a stable build I will release it to MMI and likely push up the price slightly after all this work, plus I've added anti-piracy logic which should hopefully put a stop to the demotivating mass of people that don't feel like paying a few dollars haha, I'd like to just up the amount of people that pay from the current 5% that my server knows of - since my rent is going up next year as well I just don't want to be putting time into this to end up struggling for money
06-29-2013, 09:08 AM #239
All this sounds amazing man. You deserve to bump up the price a little bit. Looking forward to this release.

Node linking implemented but is somewhat temperamental with some nodes not linking to their closest node, also time frame been pushed forward from this weekend - mainly because my house mate has me playing through all the Borderlands 2 expansions with him haha.
So I'm aiming for next weekend for it to be all finished, I also need to talk to MMI about pointing the two packages on Cydia to the same update since i4 and 5 specificity is depreciated.
Had a really quick attempt at sound effects without success but I was pointing it to the Core Audio Format files I've added to the Winterboard theme and I'm pretty sure it just needs to be pointed to M4A files. I also I need to add a settings menu for configuration but that shouldn't take long; also need to add a first run quick guide, again shouldn't take too long but I realise people like to pick things up and be told how to use it.
