    Now I appreciate what Winterboard offers to us but come on, why is there still no real UI?

    I sometimes miss the days of Summerboard...

    ^ We shouldn't have to use other apps though, it should be in the proper application

    I dont really mind the way winterboard looks. It works exactly as it was intended to. Simple easy to understand and navigate and it gets the job done. Im not sure how someone could change the UI without making it overly complicated and harder to navigate. Somerboard looked nice but not as drop dead simple to use as winterboard. Customize2 was great to but for the average joe smoe just getting into jailbreaking probably not so much for them.

    I use WBapp for mix and matching different themes other then that winterboard does a great job. WBapp looks great but look how complicated it is.

    I think the whole purpose of winterboards UI was to make it as easy as possible for everyone to use.

    A preview feature would be nice though. Maybe double tap a theme to see a preview.

    i REALLY think you should be able to delete themes from within winterboard.

    going back into cydia and uninstalling takes forever.

    I think Saurik has done his part in jailbreaking. That's probably a side project for him.
