    The only reason android devices, like Samsung's, need ridiculous amounts of RAM, and CPU cores, is to keep up with the lag BECAUSE WHY DOES A PHONE NEED A @^*$#@#%^&# OCTO-CORE CPU!!!!!!

    What is this? Smack down the new guy? Silence any differing opinion?

    I never said it was a bad device

    The ability to customise is a basic tenant of virtually any sort of computing OS. iOS is not better without it IMO. That was my point.

    The 2 of you need to calm down and think about the way you interact with people.

    So aggressive.
    1. iOS falls into the category of "any sort of computing OS".
    2. iOS does not allow the ability to customize (as some would define "customize").
    Therefore, your statement "the ability to customi[z]e is a basic tenant (sic) (assume you meant 'tenet') of virtually any sort of computing OS is false.

    For the record, I am perfectly calm. And I am simply stating the facts.

    Aren't moderators supposed to 'moderate' discussions, not attack users?

    I'm so sorry I ever came to this forum. Thanks for everything mate.
    True, moderators "moderate" the forums. They are also forum members with opinions of their own, and with the inherent right to post their own opinions, in addition to their function of moderating the forums.

    Umm... Because OctaCore is revolutionary and innovative... duh.

    You just wait until the 8-cores unleash their fury on the little iPhone...

    Unleash the fury Samsung. Unleash the fury...

    Being able to change the icons and a larger screen size are a few things that would make me consider using an iPhone again.

    I am sorry I started this thread to only see how it has gotten out of hand. Going back on topic: I was never thinking that apple would allow the full customization of Android an widgets, i give 2 rats behinds about widgeta, but just something simple like WP. That a user could change the white color in-app background to a gray shade. Again, if you invert colors, you can almost obtain that.

    P.S. I love the OS more than any other platform, just not the LOOK of 7. Not complaining, just not upgrading, my choice!

    Although perhaps good form and etiquette, I don't think you need to apologize. The original topic, in my experience with other mobile and traditional OS's, is a reasonable one.

    To answer the original question, no I don't think Apple will allow theme overlays for iOS.

    That's cool you don't have to upgrade.

    To each his own on the look if IOS 7.

    I'm not a dev but if it's user customization of a app wouldn't that be up to the dev? Would this affect the size of the app? The performance of the app? I have no idea.
    I don't think Apple is going to allow user customization of apps made by Apple maybe theme options for the users to choose from. But again how memory intensive would this make the app? Again I don't have a clue .

    To answer the OP's question, No. But there are plenty of apps in the App Store that allow you to change your app skins or "pimp your phone". Like others have mentioned too, jailbreak, develop a theme and sell it in Cydia. I love my jailbreak.

    Oh yea, my friend uses one of those apps, and has a folder of the same app with different icons. It basically makes a shortcut to it. But then you have 2 of the same app

    I will give Apple the benefit of doubt and revisit this thread in the future.

    I apologize if it felt like I was starting an argument. While I agree with you 100% on your statements about BB and iPhone being the top selling phone.

    I recant "competitive" with my OP, I was simply trying to say this:

    People do care what their phone's UI looks like, iOS was the fastest and most downloaded update in Apple's history. Do you think that is because of internal functions the OS can perform, or that is it 64-bit capable? IMO, 90% of iPhone users don't know or don't car about that. They care of the front facing user experience. Android has live wallpapers, so Apple may or may not have made Parallax to compete in this scenario. I think it would be a smart move on Apple's part to include a simple theme (maybe just color schemes) switcher. It would add more appeal just like Parallax.

    Do you at least see my point here?
    I tend to agree that it would be nice to be able to switch colour schemes.

    Change your background. With the transparency effect for screens and folders, it truly does change the look of the phone...
