Best iPad Wallpaper Apps and Websites

Let’s face it, iDevices are usually not that much customization friendly as a result of  Apple’s closed policies unless you are going to jailbreak them.

There are still ways to give a shiny new look to your iPad’s both Home Screen and Lock Screen using designated apps or simply by browsing quality wallpaper websites to find the ones that match your taste. To ease this process for you here are our curated iPad apps and classy wallpaper resources for the stylishness of your iPad.

iPad Customization Apps:

Pimp Your Screen

Pimp Your Screen is one of the most popular iPad customization apps around which enables you to give your iPad a new look by choosing from a large collection of backgrounds, icon skins, app shelves, and neon combos. It also supports the Retina display for the new iPad. One good point about this app is that with its instant preview feature you don’t need to apply the changes you make each time to see how it would look on your iPad Homescreen. Pimp Your Screen‘s current version hast a 4.5 stars rating and is available to download for $0.99.

MenuBarFilter Gives an iOS-like Dark Menu Bar to Your Mac OS X

Do you enjoy the beautiful dark  menu bar on your iPhone or iPad? Thanks to a tiny free software called MenuBarFilter you can easily turn your Mac OS X menu bar into a dark, iOS-Like one.

While this is not the only way to get a dark menu bar for Mac OS X (you can find another workaround in this GeekTool Tutorial), the good point about this Nocturne based software is that with a single click it inverts the colors of menu bar and the including widget icons to give a shiny look to your desktop. There are currently some minor issues with this software which hopefully should be solved with a new update; for example if you are running Mac OS X Lion, it might not always work perfectly in full screen apps. Also there is no way to quit the software rather than going to Activity Monitor and manually quit it from there.

Yes it’s practically not possible because you won’t get the touch screen, but by using Flurry icon set you can bring the simplicity of an iPad to your desktop.In the above desktop customized by Ace Convict the Finder is disguised as Safari and the Trash is disguised as the iOS App Store (may look weird though!).He used  Nocturne menubar for the top dark menu of his MacBook Pro running Mac OS X Lion. Other simple tweaks used were enlarging the dock and organizing the desktop icons on a grid.
