What is the best way to start customising look and feel of iOS apps?

Hi,

I've got a few iOS applications done as hobby projects, they're all using the default iOS look and feel with a few background colour tweaks here and there. Whilst the apps work OK, they do look very amateur.

Where can I start to make a proper theme for my apps, do I need to photoshop button images, tab bar gradients etc? Are there any free resources I can use to start skinning up my applications?

I've spent the evening googling, half the problem is that I don't know where to start so not sure what to search for, and the other half either just finds "theme applications" or icon sets.

Any pointers/advice would be grateful

iOS 5 organizes your magazine and newspaper app subscriptions in Newsstand: a folder that lets you access your favorite publications quickly and easily. There’s also a new place on the App Store just for newspaper and magazine subscriptions. And you can get to it straight from Newsstand. New purchases go directly to your Newsstand folder. Then, as new issues become available, Newsstand automatically updates them in the background — complete with the latest covers. It’s kind of like having the paper delivered to your front door. Only better.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
