    STATUS UPDATE:

    for those wondering where those psd files are, they are coming. Yes im still working on the skin, its not done till its done. I have 4 new versions of the skin with different color themes (red, blue, grey, black) and slightly updated graphics, nothing major. Button placement changes based on incar testing of what else, my driving habbits.
    This stuff (and psd files) will be released soon, i just need to clean up the small stuff.
    hopefully ill get some time this weekend to wrap it all up.

    I'm loving it!!!!!!!!!! This is the only skin i've found that allows me to scroll through my lyrics without hassle. Also my kareoke moded lyrics works great under your skin.

    While you're moving things around I was wondering if I could make a few requests. In one of my Carpc installs the touch screen is a bit of a reach and getting to the "GPS" button on the main screen is awkward - can you swap it with the "list" button?

    On the MP3 skin, "Min" button minimizes everything -- can this be changed to "mini"? I would also love to be able to jump straight to the GPS from the MP3, FM, and XM skins. Lastly, how do I change the keyboard button (that doesn't do anything in the Liquid GPS version) to a GPS button.

    As a side note, and I'm not sure this is where I should pose the question:
    Is there any way to keep the FM radio on while switching back and forth to the GPS?


    Keep up the great work, I can't wait to get more so I can have a day and night Liquid skin.

    i like this skin specially the main where i can have the viz and at the same time have access to buttons. access to dir/list from within the viz window i think is smart way of using space. i am using it right now, can't wait for the psd...

    I dont know about swaping the GPS button with the list button, im actually going to swap the GPS button on the main screen with the SFL button so its closer to the HIDE button on the GPS screen. This is what the psd files will be for, you can swap them till your hearts content.

    The Min and Mini buttons are going to be swapped, just havent had time to swap them yet,
    You can jump to the GPS from the MP3 screen, its the 3rd button down on the right side (or you dont have the latest version) note: latest version does not have gps in the file name but the button is there. FM and XM screens are still in flux (im thinking of holding up the release until these are flushed out)

    you have to double cllick the keyboard button, its actually not a button but an empty space for you to use the jump function that brings up the keyboard, since there really isnt anywhere else in the skin to actually click and not click a button or song.


    Im glad you guys like the skin and are still using it, it gives me the little push to keep working on it in my very small spare time i have. So keep posting comments and suggestions.
    I dont know about a daytime version of this skin, ive been thinking about it but dont think it will transfer over well with high contrasting and bright colors.
    Im actually going to design a completely new skin for daytime use.
    Is anyone finding it hard to see in the daytime? The new (unreleased) colored versions seem to hold up well for me in day and night.

    thanks again

    I just switched to this skin the other day when I had to go on a 6 hour trip....
    I gotta say its awesome... took frodo to a whole new level for me... loved it...

    My only 2 complaints... which I'm posting cause you just asked about it....
    is daytime vision.... I can't make heads or tails out of anything... the red and blue
    text is pretty much non existent in the glare (same with volume).
    I used to use Feb's skins, and the daytime skin worked awesome giving me great visability
    all the time. Maybe if you changed to a color style like that for daytime... dunno...
    but the layout rocks.. and hope to see a daytime version of this skin!

    My only other beef is the volume buttons are pretty small... and that's
    like the main button I'm reaching for when I'm flying down the road...
    I found myself just mashing the screen in that general location till I heard
    volume increasing...

    Thanks for the great work and look forward to any improvements!!

    there will be a daytime version, not of this skin (still decideing) but the layout will be similar but with different gfx.

    Not sure too much can be done in that dept. Not really any room, and at this point it would be a lot of work to make them bigger (for all 4 versions) I could make a special version with volume down where the current volume buttons are and volume up on the other side of the screen where the volume status is.

    4 versions??? GPS, Regular, Phone... what's the 4th?

    Yea I agree.. volume on both sides would be difficult also... maybe just the touchscreen
    part of the volume could be larger than the graphics area so it just registers easier??

    I don't use all the surrounding buttons.. so someday when u release the psd's
    maybe I'll get rid of shuffle and repeat and rearrange the other buttons to
    allow large volume buttons in the lower left

    Feel like making a 5th version? Volume
