    Android skin - alpha coming soon!

    Yes, I def. know - loooooong overdue...

    FYI: This skin is a work in progress, and I need to pick up the motivation again .

    If anyone has been following the "Android-ish like request" thread, you'll probably know that I did take on the project, however that feels like forever ago. Since that time, I have lost and re-gained motivation I don't know how many times. I think some of that comes with not putting out any work, or working with anyone else on the actual skin (OM dev's, love your help though).

    For now, I am at a point where I feel like I could use some people to tell me what they feel of the skin in it's current form. I've slowly been changing the look of things to follow a new display type of feature, so don't expect all the screens/panels/plugins to look awesome. A good bit aren't updated for the new look yet...

    If some appearance issues aren't a problem, I'd really appreciate some people finally playing with it, and hearing some feedback. Would keep me going as well !

    Features:
    - Profile system - used for: music ratings, wallpaper, color themes (any anything else wanted in the future)
    - 3 Home screens, 6 menu buttons per - configurable
    - Zones - all but subzones are functional atm
    - Dynamic settings - settings button always available for currently displayed plugin settings
    - Widgets
    - Notifications

    Please PM me or reply here if interested. I would also like to note that I will be using the other thread as well. So, we'll keep this thread readily available for feedback/suggestions on the current state of the skin. Let's try to use the other thread for any general feedback/suggestions if needed.

    Hi,

    I tried to find a download link for your skin but couldn't find any? Is it freely available for download?
    Failure is not an option...

    No download link yet, trying to gauge the interest here some. I'll upload the whole thing with instructions here once I work out a few more kinks. Should be this weekend I hope!

    I am definitely interested. Just waiting until we get the last little bug worked out. I would not want to confuse issues in the framework with your skin. Would make it harder to determine where the fault lies.

    A dip in the motivational curve is understandable. It has take a little while for us to get to this point. But as soon as the framework is deemed solid enough, I believe interest will skyrocket :-)

    Better off waiting to do a skin release once there is a stable version out? By version, I don't mean build, I mean like 0.8 was, so we don't have build 677 here with this skin, but 688 won't work, and vice versa... Is there gonna be a stable release like .8 sometime, or are you just talking about the current revision being stable? I could easily keep up with revisions, but that would be messy for others, and if a revision did have a framework bug, would be even worse...

    I hear what you're saying. I'm currently using/testing the latest stuff Heezer and Borte have been working on. It would be hard for me personally to test your skin. But I do have 677 on the same machine so I can definitely give your skin some face time

    Sorry for a lack of getting this out. However, I'm withholding until a suitable release build. Once one is introduced without any glaring and breaking bugs, I will put out my skin updated for that. So, until then, just be patient!

    Good plan. I expect we're not far off getting a working test version out. I look forward to checking it out.
