Remove The Visual Staleness By Winning Pimp Your Screen For iPad And iPhone
AppAdvice has once again teamed up with Apalon in order to offer you a chance to win one of five promo codes for Pimp Your Screen ($0.99) for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Whether you enjoy making a visual statement during special events and holidays or just get bored staring at the same wallpapers for months straight, Pimp Your Screen is the quick and easy way to change the digital view. In fact, there are thousands of possibilities thanks to the capability to combine the dozens of images, virtual shelves, app icon skins, frames, and more in nearly any configuration. [caption id="attachment_341625" align="alignright" width="300"] Photos can be great, but adding cool effects via skins and shelves is even better.[/caption] Optimized for the specific application, the Home and Lock Screen Makers contain favorable tools to utilize. Obviously, both offer access to the in-app content library, but also allow image importing and a preview mode. The mechanics are simple, swipe left or right to select items for each layer with a single tap to switch between edit and preview modes. For home screen wallpapers, you have the choice of app icon skins or shelves to place atop the background image. Unfortunately, the designs are not suitable for the iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod touch's icon grid. In addition, shelves and skins are orientation specific, a consideration necessary when creating wallpapers for iPad. Since the lock screen doesn't have icons, shelves would be ridiculous. Instead, Apalon provides frames, calendar, and other objects to place over the background image, plus the opportunity to add text. In this situation, there is no orientation downfall, but edit mode is designed for portrait. [caption id="attachment_341623" align="alignleft" width="300"] Add frames, text, skins, and all kinds of things to create an awesome and scary theme.[/caption] As the "one more thing," we'd like to remind you to check out the AppAdvice additions to Pimp Your Screen.
