    What do you guys think? I submitted something like it a while back but I tweaked it a bit. No one really liked it before, lol. Has no one caught on that looking unobtrusive is cool yet? That making it look minimal is more in line with apple's style? That a dark background will eat away less battery (!)

    Or maybe I'm on my own on this one.

    I kind of like this. It's simple.
    7/10 It could use some work though.
    The buttons should be a little different though for easier differentiation.
    I love the background though, could you post that?

    I kind of imagined it as a futuristic device, if you get rid of the icon names, and memorize the order, when people watch you use it.... they think you're from the future o_o


    It also makes it noob-proof

    Here's without the names... I can just imagine someone who doesn't really know much about an iphone picking it up and being completely confused.

    Now if someone could only come up with some really cool minimalist wireframe artwork for the background, it would look really damn cool.

    That's nice. Very nice. Without the text, it looks much cooler. Although the calendar isn't noob proof, but there's not much you can do about that.

    I think it has the ability to be a lot nicer with more creative people and some cooler backgrounds, I'd love for people to try it out and see what they can produce. People could put little icons in the dots, they could change their colors, add textures.. I dunnno

    I think it looks really nice and simple I agree with spoonforknife in that I think it still needs something. Although I don't know if the no text one would be very practical since all the icons are the same, I could imagine that the dock icon wouldn't matter if the text is there but for the applications pages, it might be a little difficult to differentiate between the different apps.

    Maybe if you take the text out and use adobe like abbreviations.

    Ex. Ps = Photoshop

    so Ca = calender

    So its still minimalist but you can still identify them
