Theme Overview

OS X Pad is the most advanced Mac OS X experience available for the ipad. (or any device)
The software completely transforms your iPad into a ‘Mac Tablet’.
OS X Pad works fine with iPad2, although its really suggested to use with an iPad3 or Higher as its completely Retina and looks beautiful!
Some Features of OS X Pad:
– Custom DreamBoard Lockscreen to match Mac style.
– ‘Desktop Edit Mode’ allows you to place up to 30 applications and/or up to 6 completely customizable folders on the desktop
– Theme rotates 180 degrees to support Apple Smart covers (Finderbar > View > Flip Rotation)
– Fully functional Finder bar with interactive and self aware menus options.
– Personalize your copy with your name and a username.
– 24 Different Dock ‘Styles’
– Over 80 Wallpapers!
– Complete Help/Troubleshooting interface designed to be exactly like the Mac’s
– The magnifier icon on the FinderBar opens an ‘All Apps’ fullscreen drop-down menu for quick access to all your apps.
– The Finder Window is very customizable with an all apps folder, user designated folder and 8 editable folders that you can name ANYTHING you’d like.
– The Dock is COMPLETELY customizable. Add any of the pre-made ‘Mac-style’ icons to the 10 available slots, OR ADD ANYTHING FROM YOUR iPAD! Theres also a Quick Launch folder to add any favorite apps to that you can’t fit on the dock. The dock also has some interchangeable ‘Styles’ so you can change its color to match the wide variety of Wallpapers.
– The System Preferences Menu is also very true to Mac, offering a central location to all your software settings and customizations.
– OS X Pad version updates are viewable from within the theme! Just go to ‘Software Update’ in the System Preferences Pane to view the latest updates available and change log.
This theme is more of a software upgrade for your iPad than a theme. There are almost no limits to your customization needs.
