I like a little asymmetry in software design. There’s a reason we have buttons to close or expand windows at the corners of the screen and not in the middle–but it’s not to everyone’s taste.

CydiaIcon-iJailbreak

The iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch share an impeccably designed operating system. The problem is that sometimes Apple’s designers pick form over function.

Aicon-icon

My biggest criticism of even the best WinterBoard theme is that everything looks good, until you find that the icon for one of your favorite apps isn’t supported.
