Still to come with this: getting the contacts to sync up right, getting the OSK to work with this, applying these methods to Outlook for other email systems.
Here's a few teaser screen shots of where the development is at. I've got the label shadows working on all but the bottom center song title. Not sure why but it won't show the label below it. Similar issues with the ilists.
As soon as elcamino gets label support on the overlay plugin, it will be a much more dynamic skin.
Shadows with white text:
Now, with the custom font color changed to a standard green:
Notice in the first shot that it says "Muted" the label changes from the icon to muted to show that is why there is no sound. Also, the volume level is represented in the top left by a slider under the current time.
More work done; Full screen gps with overlay:
with gps menu up:
Since the overlay plugin doesn't support labels yet, the text is part of the overlay image.
I've gotten most of the labels duplicated for the shadows, and I've gotten the volume slider on every screen. But what would be more preferred; slider under the time or under the shufflerepeat indicators?
For the 1.04 release, I am not going to implement the e-mail plugin.
I've added a new screen that displays if a feature is not supported yet:
man.. amazing.. all this features and still less than 2 meg.... That's impressive..... it's like a girl saying, i eat whatever i want, but i only weigh 90 lbs all the time... That's bull****... but this, i see it with my own eyes...
The reason most skins are huge is there is usually 3 jpegs for each screen. With all the features that most skins have, that usually adds up to over 50-60 jpegs. I've got the images saved in .png and I reuse different images for similar screens, and I don't really use the "on" image.
A lot of skinners can apply these principles and drastically reduce their skin's "weight" without excersize or crazy diet pills.
release 1.04 coming very soon.
1.04 version uploaded. Download on first post.
If you've downloaded since the last post, your video player and browser will not display the current video. I fixed the download link, but did not change version info.
Darn thing downloaded in a second - Amazing!
Trying to make it easy for everyone out there. Any comments on the changes?
It's just getting better and better. The button placements feels better too but the jury is still out as far as having the audio controls on the left is better..i'll have to take her out for a ride and see.

Couple things: the volume progress bar don't seem right there.
Also, the shuffle and repeat indicators aren't showing even when i click 'em.
She don't start with the burgundy BG, but hitting that hidden button makes the text show-up so it's easy to navigate to the BG settings - Nice.
The full screen IG button overlay seam to crash with the rest of the skin; i would have preferred buttons similar to the skin - of course, that's my personal taste.
As usual, she's still responsive and lighning quick. Let me go load her up in the truck and give her a workout.
Thanks for the updates.
