iPod Touch / iPhone - Free Customize Toolkit

If you want to personalize your iPod Touch (or iPhone) further there is a Toolkit called appropriately "Customize version 2.0" which is free.

It allows you to many different tweaks such as:

- Toggle hiding applications.
- Ability to choose number of icons on the dock.
- Preset capabilities, which allow quick reordering
- Change icon images and backgrounds
- and much more

Now that you have the tools, dont forget to protect the exterior from scratches. I bought a thin film that goes on my iPod like an invisible skin, you dont even notice it, and it keeps your brand new iPod looking shinny and new against unnecessary scratches and dents. Dont wait until its late. Its cheap to buy and you'll thank me for it later.
