    This, increasingly, is the way of high tech.

    In a way, it's analogous to how manufacturing is done-- moving up the food chain from the extraction of raw materials to basic fabrication to parts assembly to design of complex systems.

    It makes perfect sense for anyone dealing in something complex as leveraging an OS into a cohesive ecosystem to buy "parts" and customize them to fit. Frees up your people to do "big picture" work.

    Sigh! I know that was supposed to be funny, and I suppose it is.

    But what I said was true.

    Apple has evolved the product to horizons that are vastly beyond what the original product was capable of.

    Exactly. iTunes has become the Emacs of jukeboxes, add a browser and a terminal and I wont have to leave iTunes, if only it were a jukebox.

    If you want to make your iPhone or iTouch really unique and personalized, this is definitely the application to do it.

    This app is just a really great idea (surprised it took this long for someone to come up with it.)

    Who wouldn't want to see their own personally created screen shot every time they turn on their iPhone or iTouch??? I highly recommend it.

    There is nothing else out there that even comes close to what it can do.

    It's like art. You gotta try this.

    I have made several wallpapers by combining a photo with graphics and then adding text. First, I did a really simple wallpaper just to get used to the features and in like 5 minutes, I had my first one done. I loaded one of my photos (surfing shot), added 3 text boxes (my name, address and a funny line about the photo) made them all different colors/sizes/fonts and placed them around the picture.

    Then I got more sophisticated by creating different sized colored boxes (use the space key in the text box) and then layered them and added 4 text boxes over the whole thing. It's pretty phenomenal.

    I'm still trying out different ideas. The possibilities seem endless, but it's way too much fun creating new graphics. Nice combo of a functional app that totally lets you do your own thing.

    Overall, I am very impressed with what this application can do and how simple it is to use - but with amazing results!

    The link to the app is:

    There is also a website that has more examples of some of designs people have done with the app. It is at:

    Everyone I show this to loves it. I'm even making designs for my friends just for fun and emailing them to them just like a photo. People love it!

    Commenting on this thread before it was hijacked by a spammer...

    I think more and more people are discovering they don't need a subpar camera, HDSPA and phone functions in their iPod, nor do they need an AV jukebox in their phone.

    Personally, I would much rather have one of these and one of these...

    instead of one of these...

    I just think candy bar phones with a dialing pad and T9 messaging input work better as phones than the iPhone does.
