    On their site: http://www.customizeapp.com, there are no new updates, and the third latest headline addresses 1.1.4 users...is the app still being updated? I know nobody probably uses it, but I am just curious.

    I remember on my 1g, it was the coolest app, and everybody had it on their front page. I guess Winterboard wiped it out.

    I wish it was still getting updated. I preffer it over winterboard. Although winterboard has alot more options to customize. I liked the way customized organized everything.

    I heard something about the creator (spicychicken) leaving, I think...

    I only ever liked the 1.1.x version of the application. Spicychicken tried taking over SummerBoard/WinterBoard (Can't remember when Customize 2.0 came out, nor do i want to look it up) by adding in theme support, but it sort of failed.

    Yeah, it was great, but not for the long term, it definitely looked simpler than Winterboard at first but it screwed up most of my icons and made permenant icon/interface replacements for no given reason

    I used to use it too, but after getting used to winterboard....I think customize was actually pretty useless.
    Winterboard can do so much more and it only takes a couple of hours (even less for some people) to figure out how to do everything on it.

    customize used to be THE app to have on a 2.x ipod.

    id say it had a GREAT run. i remember watching so many vids trying to get it to work on 1.1.4.


    btw: sprint, killer new avvi.
