    Default Cydia Store Grows: Custom Cases to Match Themes Coming Soon


    With the success that the Cydia store has had, It seems apparent that cydia is going to begin a new program designed to allow users to purchase custom iOS cases that will match the theme of your choice. (assuming the designer has submitted one)

    Here's a quote from Patrick J. Dietzen, VP of Business Development:
    We are soon going to be selling skins for all major iDevices. We would like to offer users skins that match the themes being sold in Cydia. These skins will allow people to fully customize the physical exterior appearance of their device in addition to the look/feel of the graphical user interface. The skins are made of premium vinyl from 3M and fit perfectly onto all iDevices. They can also be removed at any point without issue. Users will be able to theme the physical look of their phone and regularly change it to whatever they desire.
    Here's an example of one of the designs that k.nitsua has submitted, just to give you an idea:



    When more information comes to light we will let you know. Keep your eyes peeling in the store. The concept sounds extremely interesting and really brings everyone closer to their favorite place on their device... Cydia and Winterboard


    This news comes from K.nitsua. Thanks for the tip.

    That's a pretty awesome idea. Some of the themes are pretty slick; hopefully developers/themers get a good cut!


    I just want to know what happened to Customize App. I feel like Winterboard doesn't do what Customize 2.0 did so well.

    Unfortunately googling "customize for iphone" doesn't yield the kind of results I'm looking for.

    Anybody??

    Not a bad idea, but I usually switch themes every other months or so, so I just got a case that matches anything... the free one Apple gave us LOL..

    I've seen wallpapers to match cases, but this makes it look like a Soviet Russia joke...

    Defo a good idea providing these vinyls are cheap enough, as others have said, i also change my theme every other month, a flowing skin matching a HD theme would look ace, im interested to see how this will develop.

    That's really sweet. Would it be a case or a vinyl like cling on for front and back?

    What the heck are you talking about? Cydia is designed for one thing. iOS. Apple doesn't make a 4G phone. AT&T doesn't have a 4G network.

    From what I gather so far, these cases will be easily interchangeable to ease the practice of constant changing of themes, lol.

    I would really want to make one of these 4 sure if I themed like a pro but since I don't I really dont find the need to use one of these because I change themes like every month or so like a someone said in this thread. But if the case is eXtremely kool then i might reconsider
