    First Attempt

    Hey guys

    I came across this site last week and it inspired me to take the plunge. I think what you are all doing is really cool.

    I'm working on my own skin and I'm pretty happy with the way its coming so far. This is a preview. Let me know what you think. Any suggestions/comments are welcome.



    I'm sure I'll have some questions down the road, but this looks like a well run forum and I've got a lot of useful information already.

    What can I say ? I love grey... and blue is my second preference..

    (my) suggestions:
    I'd like to see the same effect on the Volume buttons on the menu buttons and even have the same type of buttons on for the audio controls on the bottom..

    PS: Nice post #1 (was just on the wrong thread -- took care of it for you)..

    Thanks guys. Unfortunatly I haven't had as much time to work on it as I'd like.

    Good call on the buttons, I got that changed and it looks much better, as for the audio control buttons, I decided to change the hue of them to make them a little more blue. I am planning on making a couple of different color variations of the skin and I think those buttons will be a nice accent.

    By the way, Guino, your program rocks. Thank you.

    Here's the latest version of my audio_player:

    Looks good, like Guino said grey is good!

    One thing to keep in mind is that the buttons on the lower part (prev, play, next etc) are going to be really small on a 7" screen.

    Great skin!

    Make the play|forward|stop|.... buttons larger.. think they'll be hard to hit with the finger if they're too small.

    Only suggestion. Spin the volume - button around so that it angels toward the + button like the other side. Other than that, I'd have to say that aesthetically, that's one of the best skins yet! Take your time and do the rest of it just as nice as you did that!
