What license are the themes released under? What can I or cannot do with them
This page explains what you can or cannot do with the templates depending on the license you purchased.
I always like to admire apps that have been designed with the themes, so please send me a link to the app once its live.
I might just link to it on the site (maybe getting it more exposure).
Are the themes fully functioning apps?
No, I am trying to make the themes about design.
I wish I could implement all the functionality in them. It would be fun but then it would take me months to release themes.
Everybody’s app is different so there would be 100s of custom requests to tweak this and that. The idea is to save you time and money in making your app look good so you can focus on developing code.
If you are not a developer, hire one and give them the themes to work with. They will thank you for it… (and probably charge you less, as well).
Is there a Sample App available?
Yes, check out the Ocean theme here. That is a complete template that includes all you will find in paid-for template. Xcode sample project, Photoshop PSD files and all.
Is it worth it to get any of the themes?
Here is a rough but amazingly accurate calculation of how much time and money you will be saving with these themes.
- It would cost you at least $1000 to get a designer to design any of our themes.
- It would cost you at least 1 hour to slice the artwork exactly how you want it.
- It would cost you at least 2 hours to implement the artwork in your app.
That is $1000 + 3 hours saved. Getting one theme at circa $70 is an amazing steal.
What is included in the product?
- An Xcode sample project to show you how each theme is designed.
- Design artwork as sliced PNG files
- Retina (@2x) and Standard resolution PNG files
- A Photoshop PSD file
What version of XCode or iOS are the XCode sample projects
iOS 6 and XCode 4.6.
All the themes are coded using the Appearance SDK
All themes use Storyboards and ARC
Are the images included in Retina resolution?
Yes, both Retina (@2x) and standard resolutions are available. We’ve got you covered, especially for your users who are still using iPhone 3G models (who does that , by the way?)
What version of Photoshop?
What is your guarantee policy?
You have 60 days to try out the template and then if you feel it’s not for you, just send me an email via the Contact form and you get a full refund. No hassles.
Do the themes have app icons
We are planning to release some app icons in the future, some of the themes have sample icons. Check out the screenshots on the product page. If the screenshots don’t have icons, it ain’t got it…
Do the iPhone Themes work in Landscape mode
Bummer, no they don’t. It is on our list of to-do’s!
How To get started
First of all, you are going to have to buy a template from the Gallery
Depending on your requirements, the best place to start is with the sample project to see how the theme works together in code.
Then you will have to think about the requirements of your app and make a note of what needs to be tweaked and what can be re-used.
You can then make a new project or add the artwork (slices) folder to your existing project and start designing away.
If you get to a point where the slices (artwork) needs to be tweaked, this is where the Photoshop files come in.
You can open the Photoshop file and create your custom graphics.
How do I get my goods
After your purchase, you will receive an email with a download link to get access to the designs. You can also log in to your newly created account and download the designs from the User Dashboard here
