    AndroidSkin

    So i decided to make a new skin.........

    Here's a quick screenshot of the main screen.....



    Here's the plans for it:

    - Movable home screen objects (not click and drag unfortunately)
    - Clock widget w/ customizable font colors and background color (as pictured above)
    - App Drawer will contain links to all of the screens in the skin (except for menus)
    - RRFusion integration with lots of features
    - more...

    If the RR skinning engine gets updated, there's other things I will add to the skin as well, but for right now it's somewhat limited as far as transitions go and how screens load up...

    This will take me some time to do since I work 60ish hours a week with an hour drive to and from work...lol

    Like the phones, the skin support moving between home screens by swiping to the left or right. Moving an object on the homescreen will be similar to how Android does it as well, but instead of click and drag, a screen will pop up with available locations the object can be set in.

    WOW!

    Not really my tastes but still nice work!

    Why don't you move the time and date to somewhere that doesn't disrupt the art work so much?

    What will the graph button do? I am looking at my wife's android phone and I am not to familiar with it.

    That will be the equalizer/mixer.

    I prefer to have the time and date on the homescreen instead of the status bar.

    Also, the status bar will open up like in android displaying ongoing and recent notifications.

    Thanks
    I like the idea of the larger clock... especially since the one in my car is broken.
    I feel you on the work load. Time spent on fun things is hard to come by.
    Good luck

    I will put an option in the settings for time being in the status bar for those that wouldn't want the time/date widget there... but that wont be a top priority right now...

    I'm going to start working on some of the simpler things like audio player, audio browser, mixer/eq, things like that since those won't really require a lot of "figuring **** out" if you will...

    Oh man...I really don't know what's up with all the skins having time and date...date specially the month/year part, that's TMI for me. A big calendar icon with a big number for the day, that *could* work, if in context.

    Of course, just my .2c.

    Nice original idea, btw. Are you planing to use animated backgrounds, like a storm, or rays, or anything? That would be cool.

    Animated backgrounds are beyond the capabilities of RR right now, as are some of the things that would make this skin flow a lot better. So for now, it's going to have to be a little more basic until someone can update the skinning engine of RR

    Clock Widget color selector (click and hold anywhere on the time/date widget):

    This is far too away from being completed for that, lol...

    The screens dont transition quite the same as on android phones unfortunately, but I try to keep them as close as I can with the limitations of the skinning engine.
