    my iPhone inspired skin

    Well I loved tja's iPhone skin, but i am to impatient to wait for that (though mine will probably finish much later then his ) Also I wanted some thing "lite" I don't need all the features road runner has to offer so I am making some thing just for me..
    Audio
    GPS
    Video/DVD
    Web
    And maybe a few other things depending on what i add to my carputer.

    Any ways This skin is heavily inspired by tja's version, and I actually borrowed
    1 part from his screen shots (I hope he doesn't mind.. if so ill change it)

    The current screen is a Work in progress, but should give an idea where im going with this

    Also im learning how to make skins for road runner at the same time (first skin for RR) but it seems simple enough (thanks to the skin editor )

    Credits:
    -Tja's screen shots for his "Dashboard" skin (I took a small chunk of the background of the button, and the audio controls at the bottom)

    -http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showthread.php?t=40831 Used that as my base..

    -www.apple.com Took a few screen captures, cropped etc. (most of the buttons)

    -Misc apple icon packs

    notes:
    -The "bar" at the top is transparent/glass like
    -The buttons have a "neat" hover action for the "ON" state, they get "larger" sort of like the OSX tool bar thing (cant remember what its called)



    Enough talk heres what i have so far..

    this is perfect; I love the idea of a simpler skin that only offers some functionality, as I tend to just use video, music, GPS and internet in my car...

    The slightly rounded corners to the screen are cool too; can I sugest filling the outer corner sections in black rather than white though?.. Might look better on a screen than having a white border/corners

    Looking forward to seeing it released!

    It will eventually be black, transparent (so you see a bit of desktop.. and you chose the colour there) or make it a little bigger to fill the screen.
    Have not decided yet.

    Heres an update... The main menu is basically done... as far as buttons and "Features" go.
    I also added a "next" button (small gray on the right) just incase i need more functions.

    I need some ideas to fill the blank spaces though... the big middle space im thinking just a logo of my car or some thing.. but the other spaces I am not to sure on what to do...


    Oh, I also have some questions.. How do I use the "online" indicator? Do i need an image in my skin folder or some thing, and how do I make scrolling text for the song names, is that even possible with RR?
    Thanks...

    edit:
    Also as you can see i decided to remove the border, it just takes up space and cant really be seen all that well on a 7" screen.
    -you can also see the "mouse over"(ON) effects, and the "click" (down) effect
