    Has anyone else noticed that the quality of themes in Cydia has greatly reduced?

    For example, one of the most noticeable issues is that many people are just going to Google Images and then just uploading the photos/image as a Lock Background or Wallpaper.
    Some are even copying other peoples' themes and claiming it as their own, just with different backgrounds.

    Does anyone else have an opinion on this and/or finds it annoying?

    spoonforknife wrote an editorial on this recently and we discussed this. you are correct, except it should be noted that this is not saurik's fault. In trying to keep the community open (and make money)—neither of which are bad—repository managers host just about anything.

    1) I know, I read that. But I was just curious how many people have noticed it. (You wrote that while I was working on the poll)

    2) I never said it was saurik's fault (I don't think I am blaming anyone, except the people who upload it)

    I would still like it if people voted

    There's a big article that was written on the Quality of Cydia now.
    It's pretty good (and unfortunately true)

    But yes. I also find this annoying.

    Yes I understand that you did not directly blame anything on anyone, however, many people jump to conclusions.

    I only bothers me that I have to wait for all of the data to reload and refresh.
    It takes too much time.

    Yeah, a lot of themes are just backgrounds. Thats it. Winterboard can already do that. Also those of those apps "Love tester", "Are you my valentine?", "IDonut", etc. are just crappy apps and a waste.

    I know, I hate that too...

    If only there was a verbose mode of Cydia that showed what Cydia was doing when it is "Loading Data"

    there are so many girl themes. i say that someone makes a repo for all the girl and 16+ themes, there's so many themes/apps about them.

    like one of Dewan Payroda (AppStoreMod's) apps are b00bshake and @$$shake.

    now really. a 14 year old douche making apps like those.

    garbage.

    repo (suggested)
