Wallpaper. Where would our Mac lives be without it. Yes, Virginia, there is wallpaper for iPhones, too. Grab a photo, crop and adjust, and click. Presto. New wallpaper for your iPhone.
For original iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPhone 3GS users, wallpaper is limited to the iPhone’s initial screen. iPhone OS 4, due this summer, puts wallpaper everywhere. Now, your Mac is ready to produce wallpaper by the roll.
Why Wallpaper A Masterpiece?
Our iPhones are wonderfully crafted techno gadgets. Why muck them up with a bunch of ugly, glittery, obtuse, or inappropriate images?
Because we can. It’s what we do.
What better way to muck up your iPhone than by using the tool from whence the iPhone sprang, your Mac.
iMagePhone is a Mac app which makes wallpaper for your iPhone. Grab any image. Crop, slice, resize, zoom, and add cool effects, including exact positioning to match your iPhone’s display.
This is the way to customize the toys Apple doesn’t really want us to customize all that much. I affectionately call the whole process, Point and Click Creativity™.
Use iMagePhone to import albums and photos from your Mac’s iPhoto and then add over four dozen different photo effects. Using the handy Mac app you can bypass iTunes and create wallpaper with text, photo effects, even notes and iCal integration. Use the calendar to change the wallpaper everyday to match your mood.
In fact, iMagePhone is so cool you can collect wallpaper, organize wallpaper, share wallpaper with friends, start a wallpaper club, begin a wallpaper newsletter, and build a wallpaper blog with iWeb. Or, just dump the best photos and images into your iPhone, safe and snug and secure in the knowledge that you’re now a creative type.
iMagePhone provides a real, live, onscreen virtual iPhone so you can test out your wallpaper creation before transferring it to your iPhone. Wait, Billy Mays fans. There’s more. iMagePhone also lets you store important iPhone information back to your Mac. Again.
Frankly, wallpaper is much ado about not too much, but, different strokes, you know.
iPhone OS 4 will give us more options for wallpaper, but for now, iMagePhone gives you plenty, and a cool new way to connect to your iPhone from your Mac, and the option of plunking text and iCal notes into your iPhone’s wallpaper.
And every time you do something that customizes your Mac or iPhone, even just a teensy weensy little bit, you stick it to the Man. In this case, it’s Steve Jobs, who really wants us to just buy his art and not use it and certainly not muck it up with customization, for God’s sake.
