    heres the background of my theme

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    i plan on having spring jumps that lead to the next "channel" where the arrow keys are and when you press the "remote" button there will be a spring jump to the first page of the theme with a literal remote. im not sure how i'll have the remote look but im thinkin it will show a number and text of the channel or sumthin. where the blue screen is, i will have either the application or category filling the screen.

    here are my questions:

    1. do you like the idea?

    2. do you have/see any problems with my background so far?

    3. do you have any ideas for the remote?

    4. additional thoughts if you have them

    I'd use it if you did it well.

    1. yeah I like idea.
    2. The gloss isn't centered, but I had to do a double take to notice, I think as a wallpaper, the gloss isn't necessary.
    3. The number idea works, but maybe if you put a small glyph on each button (like a fast food restaurant cash register) it'd be more useful imo.
    4. Your BG looks very cartoony, therefore the images that you put in them should also be very cartoony and colorful. I'm looking forward to see where this is going!

    Wow, that's quite a good idea!

    I'd use it...

    The background: Try and make the screen larger, so that the theme's landscape. The Up and down buttons/springjumps can then be part of the dock along with the 'remote' button underneath. All part of the dock. Then try to make the screen as large as possible: the more icons the better.

    But remember, You can't have TOO many icons, it'll look crowded.

    Also... Imagine the TV as some flat screen, samsung 1080p HDTV xD

    i cant have the springjumps on the dock except remote becuz the channels wudnt truly go up and down so i had to make the screen smaller and push everything over. i'm thinking about having a favorites section where the dock is tho

    Good idea, but the background should have a resolution of 480x320, to fit the iPhone's screen size

    It looks kinda weak ATM, but you can change that in a few easy steps.
    1. Center the Glare.
    2. Make the image 320x480 (like EMH said)
    3. (optional) make the glare only on the Screen part.
    4. (even more optional) make it look like the plasma TV in the Simpsons intro during season 20.

    For the dock you could do like a page ripped out of a TV guide or somethin, with 4 "logos" for your 4 favorite "TV shows" which of course in this case be apps.
