So from the looks of the iPad demo we saw today, we are going to have wallpaper backgrounds on the new iPhone OS?
Before I stopped jailbreaking, I went back to the stock black background too, along with removing the App names and the 5-icon dock.
No problem. I'm fine with four-five 'approved' wallpapers. I'll just SSH into my phone and replace it with something I like if I really don't feel the need to jailbreak in 3.2/4.0.This is the one thing from the rather lackluster presentation this morning that actually piqued my interest.
It seems Apple have finally realized that having a picture behind their icons in fact isn't the devil.
I foresee four or five "Apple approved" wallpaper images available in the settings with no option for using your own. Seems very Apple-esque to me.
A background that goes behind applications on an iPhone really needs two things to succeed.Oh my, well post yours right now and we will compare. Mine looks great if you don't have anything better to compare it to.
Agreed. Apple better bring more than customizable backgrounds to the table for the next iPhone/OS. I don't know about the rest of you, but that sure as hell ain't gettin me moist.
I posted that comment before actually seeing the presentation (watched the live blog until I had to leave for work). It would be strange if they limited what's used on the iPhone while allowing users to use custom images on the iPad (*shudders*).I think that if they allow background photos, they'll allow background photos. It'll be the same as on the iPad.
