Paint Featured

Yep, you read correctly. There’s a new jailbreak theme available in Cydia, and it’s based on Microsoft’s iconic Paint application.

Paint, known for its tendency to produce crude looking drawings, is the application that’s been around in one form or another since Window’s inception. When wielded by a skilled artist it can produce impressive creations, but nine times out of ten, the results end up looking like something a toddler put together. This theme is no exception.

Paint — yes, its name is the same name of the application that it’s based off of — is an extremely simple theme. In fact, you’ll find that nearly every third party application lacks support for the theme. That means that the majority of your icons — almost all of those outside of the stock set — lack support for themed app icons.

When you see how the themed icons look, this might not seem like such a bad thing. Paint is an extremely crude looking creation, even by Microsoft Paint standards.

Paint is useful for one reason, and one reason only: to serve as a joke to show your friends. Anything outside of that is just wasting your time. Paint can be found free of charge (like you needed me to tell you that) on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Share your disgust thoughts in the comments below.
