    When I hear these criticisms I often think about movies. The new Star Trek is not original and yet it offers a fresh perspective to an old story. Themes are like that to me. When someone doesn't like a theme, the go to move is to say it looks like everything else. This has been said about this theme too when it released if you remember.

    Not trying to be argumentative Gunny, I hope you know that. I'm just in a mood to discuss is all.

    I get what your saying. But apart from one of the icon frames elite is different.

    Imo motif doesn't give a fresh perspective on themes/iOS.

    When I find it hard to say icons are from a particular theme I tend not to be impressed. I personally feel its just getting the attention due to the people who made it and not actually being one the outstanding pieces of art people can find in Cydia and put on their phones.

    Motif's icons are really well done. The UI is very complete too, lots of add-ons are available in Cydia. Srioz and Ulysseleviet are very talented themers.
    They attend their threads well, and update their stuff regularly too, which is very appreciated.

    Cody-lg and his Sarif is a very nice theme too. For free there's 4 You by Sk37cH. In Cydia.
    Frenchitouch's Ando is good too. In fact I think the latter's UI will look great with Motif...

    I personally stick to Jaku, I can't switch long from its icons. They're colourful, very detailed. I kept bits from ulysseleviet's three themes, Edgy, MiOS, Elite 6, Sarif. I really like Thémis, Elite 6 and MiOS on screenshots, but when on my phone I feel there's too much black for me. Not in the dark sense, but the colours' gradients seem to be a mix with black instead of a gradient of the colours (hard for me to explain in English/Ps terms. Perhaps a matter of hue vs burn vs overlay...) Ando and Motif's icons kept the regular iOS shape/dimensions and that makes them have similarities with Jackie Tran's themes and some other few.

    Fair point, except that when it was being hyped most people didn't know who made it. They hid behind a new name. This was also repeated by many regarding this theme.

    I usually need to spend some good time with a theme on my phone to evaluate it properly. Screenshots never do a theme justice IMHO. To be honest, when I first tried this theme I was hugely disappointed. Took it off my phone almost immediately. After a few days I put it back on and fell in love with it. Absolutely love this theme and I have never kept the same setup when using a theme as long as I have with this one.

    Even though attitudes and modders don't create themes, they are just as important to me. I like to support the creators just as much as the creation. The creators of Motif are some of the most generous people I have met in this community. I wish them nothing but success.

    And the icons look to be pretty unique to me or maybe I'm just blind. Most themes now are creating the same frame design(bevel) but not Motif.

    Watching on twitter it was obvious who the creators were while it was being hyped.

    At the end of the day it's all a matter of everyones individual opinion.

    Good to talk Krima


    Also people of MMI don't forget to check the thread list regularly for new themes some awesome ones get left in the dust.

    Elite is sik I know this you know this but doesn't hurt to switch out for an hour of the day. Don't go too long tho otherwise you will get Elite withdrawal symptoms and they arnt good

    Good discussion, well said as well.

    Tons of great themes get Left behind.... .. Has always been this way.

    Still in vacation. When I get home I will check these out, joker has a new one out as well, it has like 6 thousand icons or something done. Crazy I tell ya

    I do love elite. The work put in makes it tough for me to even think about changing. Doesn't mean I will to support my themes tho. IMHO....themes are to cheap I said it. Way too cheap

    Hope everyone is good.

    Still on vacation, so jealous. I'm already home, sorry we missed each other in Florida. Would have been cool if we were closer.
