    Do I like it? There are some things that are a lot better. There are A LOT of things that are not as good (many of those being associated with missing Shimon's programs).
    You aren't alone. I went to the grey side of Blackberry earlier this week. The skinning/themes opportunities over here are tremendous. Nacho would be in heaven.

    Hello Marc Centerville,
    ... I´m realy sad to hear of your "changeover to the dark side".

    Today is my first day using "TakePhone" and trying to do some skinnig. Searching the web for a "skinning-tool" I found this thread. (... and I really love it). I saw your fantastic work ... and had to read, that you are leaving this community. Thats a great loss for all the guys here around.

    You offered to send the sources of your skins. I would like to do some more work with them. I like your tabs in the last "pre-vue". But I have to change the colours of the speeddial-tabs. They are too dark for me. I have to create a brighter skin (in bright grey).
    If its ok for you I would really like to use some stuff of your recources.

    My eMail adresss is:
    joerg dot rahe at web.de

    WinMobile is no alternative for me as long as I´m able to work with my Palm.
    The new webOS seemed to be fun, but Garnet is my working platform.

    Palm is still alive (... for me)!

    I wish you all the best for your new windows-age. Have a good time.

    Thanks and greetings
    Jörg

    I think this one's it. Let me know if it's not. It's basically the built-in clock, opaque rather than transparent. It will only look good on medium to dark backgrounds, because the black outline around the font is a big jagged in places.

    Enjoy!

    Mcentreville, thank you so so much for all of your skins and talent you will be missed tremendously!!!
    Gee, guys, you're getting me all weepy and choked up ("Serves him right!" says Delpita LOL ) Anyway, here's to you all and the encouragement you've all provided. As much as I've liked dressing up my own phone, I've enjoyed it more knowing you're all out there showing off Shimon's programs and being able to say, "I bet YOU can't make your Windows mobile do that!"

    I still needed (wanted) a touch screen, and with my Treo going out when it did, I couldn't have waited for Verizon to eventually open up their phone choices (i.e. Storm) to their Alltel P.O.W.'s (er, "new customers"). lol

    Wow! Thanks! Does that mean somebody's going to keep my seat warm for me while I'm "away"?

    Having gotten a new puppy a few months ago and trying to train her, I can't imagine what "warm things" you might have in mind

    Please read the post immediately prior to this one. Do I at least get some "brownie points" for recruiting?

    Oh - what a way to start a new week ....

    I guess lots of the people here will argue, but I think I will miss you most of all - you have been a great contribution to TAKEphONE.

    Added to my todo list for TAKEphONE - add stars to your name in TAKEphONE "credits" page (accessible from the "About" screen).

    Or should I make those smilies ?

    I like clear and bright skins.
    So I did one for me using the "blue icons". I don´t write eMails from PDA, so I only display number of messages in the headline. The plugin "up" is the 4cast-weather from my hometown, the plugin "down" is the calendar-preview.
    With this skin I´m able to reach of of my most-used applications with only a few clicks (D-pad). That´s really great.
    [=> skin file "rahe_color_skin.pdb"]

    I had to add two new icons ("batterie" for batteriegraph and "sandclock" for a shorttimer) and a third as a template for new icons.
    [=> icon file "tp_icons_rahe_blue.prc"]

    On the screenshots you can see:
    a) the starting-page
    [=> img "takephone1.bmp"]

    b) the iBar-page
    [=> img "takephone2.bmp"]

    c) the dialing-page
    [=> img "takephone3.bmp"]

    Greetings
    Jörg

    Lookin good, Jorg.

    Just for fun, since you mentioned you like clear & bright skins- my preference is dark & simple skins. Here's my screenshot from the other end of the spectrum:

    Hello TurboTiger and fstopstigmata,
    ...thanks for your kind regards.

    @ fstopstigmata,
    ... your skin is pretty clean, too. (just a littttle bit too dark for me )

    One question:
    How did you configured the weather plugin only showing the icon, weathertext and temperature ?

    I´m using 4cast as a plugin. It displays me always the location in brackets and the time of the last synchronisation. I didn´t found any configuration to show it in a plain case like you.

    Greetings

    ... another graphic experiment:

    I took a picture of a bridge in the north of Germany (Fehmarn-Sund bridge).
    I resized the picture to 320x320, than using a drawing-tool I made a sketch of it.

    For the second part I took the original picture and resized it to 240x48. Than I sliced 5 buttons a 48x48px from this.
    [=> img "takephone1-f.bmp"]

    Its looking pretty nice, I like this design. But you have to remember the function of the buttons (... or using the tooltips )
    [=> img "takephone2-f.bmp"]

    Theres no iBar-Page, only the i-Bar row at the buttom. (I wouldn´t remember so much buttons... )

    Greetings
    Jörg

    P.S.: I have to do 5 more posts, than I´ll be allowed to link my images inline of the text.

    Your bridge skin is a neat idea, it gives me a few ideas of my own... I'll post them here if I ever get around to making them =D

    I've got an idea for those buttons: open the .bmp file on your computer and add text to them saying what they are. That way you don't have to worry about memorizing them. I know you could make it really nice looking with the right font & editing. I'd take a stab at making an example for you, but I just got out of work & on my way to bed =]

    As for the weather display, you have to edit the settings for that within 4cast. Go to Menu>Display Preferences and at the bottom are different buttons for plugin display items. just deselect the buttons you want to get rid of.

    I've always wanted to do my own skins, but I have a Mac, so I can't use the skin creator.. But like I mentioned earlier, I think between making my own background & buttons I can come up with a really neat idea. I have the weekend off, so maybe I can get the ball rolling.

    Goodnight!

    Hmm.. has anyone made a skin that doesn't have any kind of 'space' for the ibar icons to be resting on? Like, when you display the ibar WITHOUT any icons in it, you shouldn't be able to see those squares at all. That's what I need.

    I'm thinking about making custom icons who's backgrounds match exactly to the wallpaper beneath them, so all there is is the icon floating there to click. Here's a quick Photoshop of my idea:

    http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b3...ta/mock-up.jpg

    Although I'm thinking on a much broader scale... I want to make the background a scene of some sort & have my top 5 contacts coming up from the bottom like they're all standing there for a picture. The edges of the buttons will merge with the wallpaper and be undetectable (as long as someone can find/make me a skin like mentioned above =D ) and when I want to call someone I just click their head. I hope this makes sense.. if done right it could look amazing.
