There is no denying that WinterBoard is THE most popular theming application available for the jailbroken iDevices namely iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. There are countless themes available through Cydia for the WinterBoard platform. One of the reasons for its immense popularity has to do with the free availability of the app. It took a lot of time for a true competitor theming platform to arrive on the iDevices. Finally it happened a couple a months back when we witnessed the release of the DreamBoard an alternative theming platform for the iDevices which supported deeper hooks in the iOS to skin and modify the looks of the OS to your liking. Some of the visual enhancements supported by the DreamBoard are not even possible with the WinterBoard! Another big advantage has to be the on-the-fly application of any theme without the need to reSpring (restart Springboard)!
Dreamboard lets you place anything from widgets to apps where ever you want. Theming is no longer limited to just icons, or having to resort to complicated setup themes involving Iconoclasm, SpringJumps, etc.
Dreamboard makes it easy to switch between any theme in just a few seconds. Simply launch, choose and apply! And, Dreamboard eliminates the long wait of having to restart Springboard everytime you make a change. No more resprings! Dreamboard includes a complementary copy of Endroid (HTC theme).
If you don’t agree about the strong capabilities of the DreamBoard then have a look at the video below and see for yourself:
However, despite the strong capabilities of DreamBoard and rich set of available themes, application couldn’t really overtake WinterBoard in terms of popularity. One of the hindrances in the popularity had to do with the price as the developers were charging $ 2.99 for the application. However, the good news is that app has gone completely free and it may help to make is much more popular and might even overtake the WinterBoard.
You can get the DreamBoard for free right now from ModMyi repo in Cydia.
