    Arrow New Skin: LargeIcons

    This is a skin I have been working on for my own use, but I will post it if people are interested. Features I do not use as often have been moved to the home screen or the system menu pages, freeing up a lot of space to make important buttons larger (music, video, gps, rew, play, fw). The icons are tweaked versions of free icons, many from the "icon-a-day" pack. There is also influence from windows media player 11. The blue question mark is for the system menu, and the date/time box is the home button.

    This is my first serious attempt at a skin, so let me know what you all think. There is still a lot of free space on the home screen, but I don't know what I'm going to use it for yet.


    Home screen 2:


    Music-Current Playlist:


    GPS:


    Most of the rest of the screens have similar layout to the "current playlist" screen. The entire skin is 90% complete.
    --------------Update 2/16/07-------------------

    I finally finished enough of this skin to release a first version. The only things not working are weather and movie theaters. If you find any other problems let me know.

    I am open to suggestions on this skin and will probably release an updated version sometime in the future based on the comments I get.

    You might have an issue with that looking too much like the default Centrafuse skin and the RR skin Freedom. ;

    I am not worried about any other skin. This is not a "clone" skin and will not be treated as such. That being said, the bottom buttons are already being switched over to match the skin better, so that will eliminate any similarities.

    The bit with the time and date is the main bit that stands out for me. That would need to be changed as well.

    Cool

    BUMP for new home screen shot. Looks a lot better this way I think...


    ------------Update:------------
    All screen shots now updated to cool blue glow instead of patented silver.
