Thread: iSkin : many iOS themes for everyone, without jailbreak !

  1. #1
    Default iSkin : many iOS themes for everyone, without jailbreak !
    Hi everybody !

    I'm here to annouce not one, but several themes !

    A few examples :
    Attachment 682509 Attachment 682510 Attachment 682516 Attachment 682517 Attachment 682518

    You perhaps know some of them, like the RingMasker/SquareMasker by thazsar... but the new thing here is that all the themes on iSkin can be installed by EVERYBODY, every device (iPhone 3 to 6Plus), most iOS versions (at least from 5 to 8)... and WITHOUT jailbreak !

    This is possible using iSkin !

    Watch this video to see it in action :




    For you, as theme designers, iSkin allows you (using the "theme editor" web tool I developed) to convert your existing themes into non-jailbreak compatible versions, and broadcast it widely to everybody, not only the jailbroken devices / community.

    Watch this other video to see how you can do this in a few minutes (just upload your icons & wallpapers, and associate them with apps to launch) :




    I've already been in contact with some of you here directly on my @tooliphone Twitter (MtK_Des1gn, S1lex, frenchitouch, thazsar, ...) but I want with this post make iSkin known by many more good theme designers, so you will be able to upload your themes on iSkin too !

    Indeed, iSkin is in "open beta" version, now available for everybody asking for it through Twitter.
    Technically, it is almost finished. I now just need to find real theme designers with good themes to upload the first available content for official release.


    So : I need you to make this "dream" come true !!The best thing to do to begin is to :
    - watch the videos above
    - read the iSkin FAQ with many usefull informations, including "why you definitively should register to iSkin and upload your themes on it"
    - contact me to ask for beta acces codes (on my @tooliphone Twitter or directly by email)
    - upload your first theme to try and see how it works



    Few notices :

    I did my best so that iSkin will be easy to use for you and the users. I hope you'll enjoy it !
    You can of course give me suggestions for a future release, I'm open to criticism (positive or negative).

    But keep in mind that this is "a personnal (non professional) website" I made during my free time, so please be indulgent if it is nor "perfect" !

    I spent so many time (some hundreds hours) and energy in it that now I really want to achieve it and see it released one day...
    I know that talking with theme designers like you, after seeing the work you do with your themes, you will understand what "spending many hours and energy on a project" can mean to ! ;-p

    For this, I really want to work closely with you.
    I don't want iSkin to be an hosting theming platform "full of junk & pirated themes", that's why there is few themes for the moment : I want that theme designers be OK to upload their themes, and that they have full control on them. I don't want anybody to upload themes of others without permission, because "this theme is sooooo nice" !

    Many of you will surely say "I don't want to upload my themes if I cannot sell them on iSkin". I understand.
    But you have to know that :
    - Paid themes feature will come later in a V2, and only if iSkin is a little "popular" for its V1. for that it needs to be released in V1. And for that it needs to have themes on it first !
    - Paid themes feature is technically quite "difficult" to do... so please wait that I have more time to think about it !
    - I think it is "stange" for the moment to sell non-jailbreak themes, as there are MANY limitations compared to real jailbroken themes (read the FAQ to know more). Consider that it is for you a way to make your jailbroken themes known by many, with a "jailbreak-free restricted version"... seeing all the jailbroken themes features after trying your iSkin "light" theme version, some users will probably want to buy it
    - Jailbreak is not yet available with iOS 8 : iSkin will be a unique opportunity to promote your themes and install them on iOS8 devices waiting for the jailbreak to be here !


    => In a few words : PLEASE JUST GIVE IT A TRY !! ... and if you don't like it, you have full control to remove your themes or add/delete icons and more at any time...


    I can't wait to see you on iSkin ! \o/
    Have a good day !!

    Wow it has potential my friend!!! Niceeee *++

    Hey what happened? There were more posts yesterday???!!!

    Anyway, thank you for the login code, I was able to toy a bit with iskin, here's a few points for you to address:

    I used iphone 4S on IOS 8 newly updated, no other apps added. I chose the Rinkmaster theme (round icons), used the "select all" function and all the icons downloaded fine but the result isn't perfect, see the pic:

    -img_0005.png

    a- the image seems larger than the circle and the original ios8 round rectangle overlay is visible
    b- the new icons didn't cover the original ones, there were added after the last one on the second page (when I used the one by one option it worked fine)
    c- optimally, the extra icons (those who don't correspond to apps) shouldn't be visible

    I used the "select all" function because this should be the default, I believe ppl with dozens of apps will be rebuked by the manual option.

    I hope this can be solved, the potential is Huge!

    I had to contact the dev to get access to the site when it first opened. It might be the same for anyone else that wants to join. Sorry guys...

    And Thaz, I watched his video. Is customization of icons only available for icons that have a WebClip uRL? It didn't look like he was able to customize all app icons.

    ^^ Correct to my understanding of the documentation. He mentions the URL scheme, and its restrictions on certain apps not being compatible. Cheers.

    Hi all !

    I'm happy to see that more people here in modmyi try iSkin and comment it ! A big thank to all !!

    To answer you questions :
    - if you ask for codes but wait... This is normal : consider jet lag with France + erratic internet connection this week + I'm a family man... Thank you for understanding this !
    - iSkin is a non jailbreak solution. That's cool, but OF COURSE this is not real theming and there are limitations... You can't avoid this unfortunately... For examples : icons are shortcuts to real apps (webclips), not all apps available, transparency not allowed by iOS (but this is good on black background), no notifications, ...
    => PLEASE READ THE FAQ to know more about all this !

    But this is the best alternative you can have currently without jailbreak I think... And I tried to
    Ale it the most accessible and easy to use for everyone.

    Continue to try it and upload themes on it, iSkin will only be released to the world when enough "good" themes on it so it could interest people.

    Thank you again for your help, I hope that with the help of the modmyi themes community, iSkin will become a really great thing !

    See U




    Sent from my iPad using ModMyi

    @cocco26 : URL schemes are the key for iSkin... Read the FAQ to learn more.

    So unfortunately not all apps available for theming.
    I've listed only the one I've tested, but there are more Thant can be themed.
    You can help me to complete this list of available apps (again : explanations on the FAQ)

    See U !
