WOiP Tip – Customize Your Start Up Screen For Free

On September 16, 2008

Tired of an impersonal start-up screen? Want information like your name and email readily available to anyone who finds your device?

Don’t want to pay for the commercial products that fulfill these functions?

WOiP reader Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten has you covered. Boris contacted up this morning with a link to a PhotoShop template that makes quick work of creating personalized wallpaper for your iPhone and iPod Touch. While we haven’t had a chance to use it, it sure looks nice and you certainly can’t beat the price– FREE.

As Boris explains–

Unlike Windows Mobile the iPhone’s start-up screen is pretty boring and uninformative. You can customize it a bit by replacing the standard globe photo with your own creation but that is about it.

I wanted my Start-Up screen to show my name and enough information for someone who would find it in case I lost it to return it without having to call all my contacts and nose around my email and stuff. That is why I created the “StartScreenTemplate.psd” for everybody to use and generate your wallpapers with.
