iUI Monotony

I'm really excited to see so many people using iUI. I just have one concern. iUI gives your apps the precise look of Apple's iPhone apps. That's nice, except it's kind of boring.

I know not everyone agrees with me on this, but I kind of like the way applications on the web have their own unique style, unlike desktop applications which all tend to look identical. As beautiful as Apple's designs are, I don't want to have to look at that same shiny blue bar on every single website I visit.

I guess what I'm saying is, if you're using iUI, don't hesitate to plug in some of your own colors and graphics and stuff. My favorite iPhone app, PickleView, is a great example. It feels right at home on the iPhone, but has its own distinct visual identity.
