    Just imagine...

    Each icon, a mini building themed for it's individual purpose, together creating a Metropolis.
    Animated, live weather over Metropolis.
    Wallpaper/Photos set as advertising boards in the background.
    Planes flying past with a banner showing the latest headline from your favourite RSS feed.
    A complete website dedicated to "planning permission" requests for new buildings (icons).
    High resolution artwork available as digital wallpapers or printed posters of your requested building.

    Metropolis. Not just a theme. A living, growing, entity for all the community to enjoy, build and share.

    Coming soon to an iDevice near you...

    There's one or two decent slab serif fonts that I may use, but Metropolis will have it's own font

    266 Collection has (finally) been updated and going to repo over the weekend. Wanted to get the set up guides in place before it got updated in Cydia so no one has any problems with the update!

    Metropolis is "coming soon" I'm not in a position to say when as I want to update 266 System to HD first.

    It will work with SD devices too, just as 266 Collection works on retina devices even though it's an SD theme with HD & SD icons!

    This is very much a work in progress, just wanted to throw it out there in case someone else got the same idea.

    Imagine a city on your springboard. Each icon a little building or structure...

    The potential for 266 Metropolis is massive.

    Animated widgets over the top air balloons passing by showing your rss streams. Live weather over the city with your local weather.

    Little people wandering around... hehehe
