I love my iPhone. And some part of the credit goes to Cydia, for the innumerable number of useful applications it has to offer. That being said, I like winterboard themes a lot. Among the many skins that I have used and/or come across: these are the best winterboard themes that I am in love with..
Before that, remember: It’s a fact that using custom themes drains your battery faster than normal use; but, sometimes it pays off too, right? The person standing (or sitting? Whatever..) next to you might as well be amazed with the dashing themes on your iPhone/ iPod touch. It’s not a new version of the device, but just another iPhone/ iPod touch, with a smashing theme.
So, here goes a list of themes, that you should check out for your iPhone and iPod touch — and yeah, these are winterboard themes, meaning your device must be jailbroken.
These winterboard themes are free to download and most of them (or all) works on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (3G), iPod touch 3G and any apple device that is jailbroken. Learn more about installing Winterboard themes.
Best Winterboard Themes For iPhone/ iPod Touch
To install and download any of these winterboard themes on your iPod touch or iPhone- just search for them in Cydia and confirm the installation. Lets delve into my list of top winterboard themes:
HTC Sense UI Winterboard Theme
Well, every person who has seen or has played with an HTC loves its interface, no doubt about it. The Sense UI is one of the marvelous achievements of HTC, period. So, if you would like to get a similar look of your iPhone’s interface, then this is the theme. The functionality of the Sense UI does not come with it, just the looks of course.
Installing this theme does require some time, but the effort pays off at the end. I’ll come up with a detailed tutorial on this, perhaps by the end of this month.
Glasklart Winterboard Theme
Well, I have never used glasklart before, but when I used it now, for this roundup, then and there, I understood that I have been missing a lot of things. Ever had that problem, where you wanted a theme style, but still would like to showcase the wallpapers? Well, its possible with this amazing Winterboard theme.
The best thing with the glasklart theme is that, it is customizable in itself. It is basically a transparent theme and you can easily use it with any wall paper to get a unique style out of it and is true to the name which means – “Like a Glass”. Definitely one of the best winterboard themes around. Do check it out on cydia.
Nexus One Winterboard Theme
Are there any nexus one users out here? Well, yes, this is one of the top rated themes everywhere, and I simply love its elegance. Nexus One has fascinated me and eventually my attempt to try an Android OS led me to buy HTC HD2. I have tried to get the Nexus One look on my HTC HD2, but it doesn’t fit perfectly, and also I cannot give away with the Sense UI of the HTC.
So, I took my madness over Android one step further- picked up a jailbroken Apple iPhone 3G and the rest you know. Take my word: this nexus one theme is superb, just pure awesomeness. You’ll love it for sure.
The AndroidLock app, also from Cydia, when used with this theme, gives you the Nexus One Lock effect, which is even more fantastic.
iPhone OS 4.0 Winterboard Theme
Well, this, in particular is for iPhone users with 3.x versions. Those who love the 4.0 version, can feel the look and have the taste of iPhone OS 4.0 interface now with the use of this theme.
The complete feature availability is not possible with this theme as you might have guessed already, but you can set the new theme background, also have wallpapers for lock screen and home screen unlike the previous version. Also, the dock deserves special mention, especially since; it is one thing a lot of people have loved with this theme. This is a Kill For theme; no doubt about that.
Lucid Winterboard Theme
Clean and sleek will be an apt description. The one thing that I love about this theme is its simplicity.
There could not be a simpler, but at the same time, most sophisticated theme ever like this. Using this theme, your iPhone/ iPod touch really gets glories.
Other Winterboard themes worth mentioning: Vivid (screenshot) and Buff2 (screenshot). Any captivating winterboard themes that you’ve tried lately? Let me know..
