Pimp Your Screen App: Personalize Your iOS Device

Are you bored with the current wallpaper on your iOS device and wish you had more choice of backgrounds? Well thanks to Apalon’s recently released Pimp Your Screen app, you now have the ability to personalize your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPod with a large number of unique backgrounds to choose from.

According to Marc Saltzman over on the website, users have many different styles, colors and objects to choose from, such as hand-drawn characters, cars and flowers. A lot of the images – such as tree branches and picture frames – look like slots or shelves that appear to hold your app icons in place.

Many of the images are available for both horizontal and vertical orientation. The Pimp Your Screen app enables users to scroll through the featured images by theme, such as Skins or Neon, or just flick through the collection by category: Popular and Recent for example.

Another great feature is the fact that it enables you to preview what each background will look like with your icons. However, if you then want to set the image as your home screen or lock screen, you have to save it first and then go to your photos and set it as wallpaper.

    I tried Screen Pimp which is also as good if not better than Pimp Your Screen as it allows customization of the wallpapers as well. I like them both but if I had to go with one it would probably be Screen Pimp.

    At first glance it's a great app. Then, soon as you happen to rotate your iDevice, the dazzle wears off.
    The high resolution images are beautiful but there are few that aren't orientationly limited.
    I wish I hadn't bought it.
