CUSTOM SKINS COMING TO CYDIA?
Posted by ipodrohan
Apparently Saurik has hired a VP of Business Development who is beginning a new program designed to allow users to purchase custom iDevice skins that will match the theme of their choice.
We are soon going to be selling skins for all major iDevices. We would like to offer users skins that match the themes being sold in Cydia. These skins will allow people to fully customize the physical exterior appearance of their device in addition to the look/feel of the graphical user interface. The skins are made of premium vinyl from 3M and fit perfectly onto all iDevices. They can also be removed at any point without issue. Users will be able to theme the physical look of their phone and regularly change it to whatever they desire. – Patrick J. Dietzen, VP of Business Development
The news come from a post at MMi, no actual public confirmation from himself at this time.
We have seen similar skins already being sold by companies like Skinit, Zagg and many others where they’ll include a matching lockscreen to go with your custom skin, but a whole theme to go with your skins sounds even better. Will Cydia skins be competitive in pricing compare to the current market? Only time will tell..
Would you rock a skin made from your favorite iPhone theme? If so, for how long?
