    Installed it and tried the built in android theme. My phone froze and I had to do a hard reset.

    got it before it became a pay app and uninstalled it mins later. First off I couldn't even get it to work. I swipe left to right to change themes and it didn't do nothing.

    me too crashed into safe mode about 5 times in a row so i removed it, maybe the free version was just a tease to show it off and the pay one has been fixed, seen some youtube reviews by users and it worked flawless in the video

    I can't find it on cydia. It's supposedly on the modmyi repo but I have searched, refreshed and searched again to no avail.

    Cydia isn't different depending on your location is it?

    Very intrigued by this, but after the comments here I'll wait and see. Tried checking out the website and there wasn't much to it.

    Youtube video looks nice though.

    Yep, could be something nice but I kept crashing, I guess that's what I get for pushing purchase before checking it out.

    Figured I'd take the plunge - but I should have known better. I bought it, but I can't even get it to install. Assuming it is a conflict with another JB app, I've been uninstalling just about everything and still get the same error upon install. /sigh.

    Bought it and installed it. It's cool for what it is, but very raw still. Every time I go back to iOS after using one of the themes, I'm required to respring. Not that big a deal, but looking forward to the fix when that isn't needed.

    With a little more time, this is gonna be sick. I've tried this theme and it is progressing nicely: http://modmyi.com/forums/iphone-4-n...reamboard-theme-release-endroid-jessemod.html

    Just downloaded, opened, current theme being used wasn't shown. Then every time I hit the home button, the status bar would change colors as if it was at the home screen but it was stuck in Dream board. Had to turn off/turn on phone. Deleting it now.

    I've been using Dreamboard for a couple of weeks now. I alternate several times a day between my favorite Winderboard theme (Smoog) and Boxor HD. The transition is seamless and actually kinda cool.

    As far as Dreamboard goes, it's been very stable and is easy to mod for the most part. I've remapped all the big widgets and added several more in place of the RSS feed and other things I wasn't using.

    Now if we'd just get more themes out there to chose from ;)

    I tried out dreamboard and it's not big deal to me and here is why.

    Yes it is an alternative to winterboard, which can be a good thing however there are only a handful of themes available and the overwhelming majority of them cost money. Usually only a couple dollars.

    It uses "inav" styles themes! This means if you don't like having a specific application's icon on a specific screen at a specific location then you need to go in and reprogram the theme. In some cases the games tab may have icons displayed for games you don't have or don't even want. Now you have to reprogram the theme or just live with it. Some of these themes don't use a custom lockscreen and instead force you to have a massive weather widget taking up a third of every "page" on your phone. You may not like this.

    They all seem to show facebook on the search page (swiping left). What if you don't use facebook? You are fixing the theme to put something else there.

    Lots of extra page swiping as only a few icons now fit on a single page, unless you throw them all into a folder. Some themes only give you a couple folders. You may not be able to reorder their display or change their names without, you guessed it, reprogramming the theme.

    If you like these style of themes and want to spend the extra time laying things out then this is for you. I can see why few were willing to pay for dreamboard and it is now a free program. I do like how you can quickly change from one theme to another though.
