iOS 7 design tool

After June’s iOS 7 announcement us bloggers have gotten to become premium design experts. So much ink has been spilt on the new look of Apple’s mobile operating system, with observations of armchair analyst, resident critics, the quotidian and alike touching on such topics as Apple’s golden ratio, the icons, the flatness, the colors and just about every aspect of the software overhaul one could think of.

And that’s perfectly okay. And now, those who insist they could do a better job at revamping iOS 7 can take a crack at it. An amusing tool by Usvsth3m lets you create your own iOS 7 design masterpiece by customizing the iOS 7 icons, wallpapers, fonts (good-bye Helvetica Neue, no?), color scheme, corners, shadows – and even put in their own slogan. Will you give it a go and let your inner designer shine through?

Check out the tool here.

I love the tagline: “Every bloody designer on the planet has had a go, so you might as well try too”.

Two cents says that far less people will complain about iOS 7 when Apple releases it for public consumption come this Fall. And I’m pretty sure that a year from now no one will remember the heated debate over the iOS 7 icons and flatness.

Call me old-fashioned, but in my view iOS 7 is – though far from perfect – the sleekest, the smoothest and the most beautiful version of iOS yet.

    It’d be kool as hell if we could download the theme we made for use in Winterboard.

    I wonder how much they were laughing when they added Comic Sans to the font list?

  • Pranav Shankar

  • Indian Food

    The best theme is the way it came from Apple. Everything else looks like garbage…

    • BoardDWorld

      Glasklart is to this day is an awesome theme, for the same reason iOS7 is in fact. I had it on my old 2G running smooth as butter, well smoother if you’re comparing it to Androids butter…

        Well, I was talking about this website, not the Jailbreak themes as a whole.

    I think the celebrity Messages icon should have been Kwame Kilpatrick

  • Gerardo Maasberg

    While playing with the icon’s corners I now realise those icons where meant to be circular, they look so much better that way. Go try it.

  • Ian Jackson

    I really like the rounded icons look.

  • woojoo666

    dat safari icon doe…

  • CPVideoMaker101

    Those rounded Icons look really nice.

    • scottfree

      go buy an android phone then. they have plenty like that.

      • CPVideoMaker101

        I actually own a Nexus 7 and most look like crap. I just said my opinion, what’s with the rudeness?

      • scottfree

        sorry, that wasn’t rude. I dont want my iphone to look like the others . The icons look like a 2 year old made them. The colors are tacky.

  • scottfree

    so tacky, those are the tackiest colors ever… Hello kitty Ios7
