    Default Dreamboard Theme iOS X Ultimatum Brings OS X to Your iPhone



    IOS X Ultimatum is a Dreamboard theme that brings nearly all of the familiar elements of OSX to your iDevice.

    Created by Timothy Elliot (sirtimothy) and Raymone Radi (Raybeast) the theme includes a Finderbar customized so you can have easy access to your applications. Users can swipe across the dock at the bottom to reveal more apps and can find all of their applications located in the finder folder. The iTunes icon accesses your music, Photobooth accesses the camera app,



    Users can add 16 different apps to the main screen, as well as customize the apps inside each of the five folders located on the finderbar as well as two pages of apps in the “favorites” section located by tapping the Apple logo. The dashboard can be accessed by swiping left to right and contains Facebook, Twitter, and Weather widgets.




    The theme is surprisingly responsive, and is a convincing combination of iOS and OSX, even though Apple continues to bring more iOS functionality into their desktop OS with each ensuing iteration. SBS settings, activator, and your other gesture management systems still work, but the interface does take some getting used to. Things work a little differently, mainly the ability to swipe to different pages on the home screen is absent, and the fact the trash can isn’t really a trash can, rather a settings menu for iOS X Ultimatum (clever, but it would be awesome to have a trash can right?). Another minor quibble, the faux-finder doesn’t have a search function. Actually, there doesn’t appear to be a universal search option.

    Still, iOS X Ultimatum is an interesting, fast, and elegant Dreamboard theme that nearly finds the perfect balance between iOS and OSX.

    I feel like my version of OS X Mountain Lion "brings OS X Your iPhone," more so than this does... No offense, to Tim or Ray, I just find it a bit odd...

    While not my cup of tea, still VERY impressive! Kudos to the creators! The widgets page is really, really pretty, and much better and more useful than the stock spotlight page. Would love Apple to create something similar to replace spotlight.

    And I agree with Phillip, a real Trash would be awesome! Never really thought about that before, but i could see it being useful. One idea: The ability to drag and drop your apps into a trash can (delete confirmation NOT needed), where they would stay until you open the Trash Can app, and press a "delete all" button, removing all of the apps at the same time. Or if u have changed your mind about the app and want to keep it, you could press a "restore" button, and the app would be moved back to its original location. The Trash Can app could also show you the size of the app(s) in the Trash, allowing you to see how much memory you could free up by deleting the selected app(s).

    Korbyn, agreed.
    However, I personally find that this theme integrates the two better, ease of use wise.

    First off, it's called "OS X Lion Ultimatum" (lol)

    I also find it funny that this story is just coming out now seeing that this theme has been for sale on The Theme Outlet for over a year now.

    Timothy Elliott created OS X Lion Ultimatum a year ago, all by himself. His theme was much different than this current theme. They are not the same theme.

    Then you should write an article on what you think is worthy.

    Not sure if I'm digging how the dock icon badges are larger than the actual icons themselves with triple digits; those could definitely use some resizing. Icon labels on the home screen are lacking any kind of drop shadow, which makes it hard to read in the center of the OS X Mountain Lion wallpaper.

    I'm also not that much of a fan of how the icons are "pressed" from being scaled; it looks a tad bit off:


    The dashboard view and Menu Bar at the top of the screen are creative and probably my favorite part about the whole thing.
