"Does what it says"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This software installed cleanly and I find the overall effect on the appearance of OS X to be subtly but significantly improved. The most noticeable changes are I find is that Carbon apps (like Office 2004) now smoothly integrate with the newest Cocao apps. All the open windows share the same appearance and UI, which makes for a more pleasant and 'clean' experience when using many apps and windows.

And it's free :)

It works, and it didnt before, so that's good. It also isnt a resource hog like Shapeshifter is/ can be. I am not sure it is an improvement over the normal ones, but it's not bad, and it is certainly a matter of taste. And it is unified. O_O

Good job.

The way OS X should have been skinned in the first place.

"The simplest solution, period."

March 26, 2007  |  By mrgraham06

 |  Version: UNO 1.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
There are two things that rank high on my list of unimportant but frustrating annoyances with OS X: it's near-complete lack of user interface customization and the inconsistency of the one we're stuck with.

For a while I have been trying to use Shapeshifter to solve both these problems, but anyone who's used it will tell you it can sometimes end up just being more frustrating (what gets me: the text of the contextual and toolbar menus in Path Finder stay black no matter what but the background will change; this means any dark-menued theme will render Path Finder's menus nearly unusable).

Uno doesn't offer the customization available with Shapeshifter, but it basically completely solves Tiger's UI inconsitencies. And even though I can't make my screen entirely black (to feel old-school, of course), "Uno Shade" is much easier on my eyes and my OCD than Aqua's blaring white and the chintz of brushed metal.

"Wouldn't need this if...."

Summary

Apple, Apple, Apple. When will you learn? It's one thing to have all these cool products and software, but let's not forget what made Apple cool in the first place. THE USER INTERFACE!

This fantastic application wouldn't be needed if you could just stick to one interface theme instead of the absolute mess you've made of your OS. Jeez, talk about inconsistent branding. Don't you people realise that your OS interface and applications are also part of your brand?

I highly recommend this application to anyone who likes consistency in their computing experience.

"Nip...Tuck..."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Oi! Jobs... Whilst you've been putting all your energies into building extensions, like iPod, AppleTV, etc., the cowboys have been in and trashed your interior decorating. This fine app does a great job at covering the shoddy and botched DIY interface look OSX has taken on. Will Leopard show further degenerative signs of inconsiderate jerry-builders when the scaffold comes off?... I wonder. Consistent system-wide themes, Apple, can you manage that?

What's new in version 1.3
  • UNO is now Universal Binary (ready for Intel/PPC architecture based Macs) - thanks to Colin Cornaby for Extras2Extras2.
  • Introduced UNO shade (a slightly darker variation of UNO).
  • New customize panel with live preview (it is now possible to, optionally, assign any variation of UNO and/or the default Aqua UI look to diferent GUI elements. Overall GUI contrast can be achieved by mixing UNO with UNO shade).
  • Added "guifix", a troubleshooting restore option ála ThemeChanger's "tcfix". (If something goes wrong, press "command + s" during boot to enter single user mode and enter "guifix" at prompt. "guifix" will check you disks for errors, fix them if any, restore your GUI files from backup and reboot.)
  • Uninstall should now be fail-proof. Added "Uninstall" in addition to "Restore from Backup".
  • Merged iTuno with UNO (UNO concept is now ONE download).
  • UNO is rebuild against new UI resources file (requires Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later).
  • Changed OS version check method (some Tiger systems upgraded from Panther were being miss identified as 10.3).
  • Added iTunes version check (requires iTunes 6.0.2 or later).
  • Fixed iTunes bottom corners - thanks to Ephica (were a bit jagged).
  • Added compatibility with Firefox 1.5.x and Thunderbird 1.5.x.
  • Refined unified toolbar gradient.
  • Reduced Spotlight and Apple menu items size by 20%.
  • Enhanced UNO integration with Firefox to be more compatible with 3º party themes - thanks to Aronnax.
  • Reduced the slightly dimmed title text on some metal windows (reduced, not fixed).
  • Fixed a tone mismatch between text background and window background (was notorious at iTunes advanced preferences panel; WorkStrip about panel; ...).
  • Fixed a glitch found on metal drawers (a horizontal gradient overlay was present).
  • Added Install, Uninstall, Restore from Backup, Remove guifix and More Info menu items.
  • Other minor installer enhancements.
