    I am really confused... first we gripe and grip about getting hiRes... then we do and we gripe and gripe that it ain't perfect AND backward compatible... I spent a bunch of time to create the sample skin (and a few others) for this version... but I did it because I wanted to... that hasn't changed... and ANY changes or improvements to the handling of SKINS are welcome and part of the growth of a product. And as soon as the new skin structure is settled I will rework my skin(s) and get started making more... BECAUSE IT IS FUN... I ain't getting paid either...

    btw, ThanksTakePhone for a great product and for all your efforts.

    in the meantime, this is my last skin that works fine with the latest TakePhone... though I imagine it may NOT work once the next version comes out.

    on another note... (perhaps this is the wrong place)...
    features I'd liek to see:
    - option to NOT display tabs. I prefer to navigate them via the 'phone' btn. and could use the screen realestate.

    - is there any way that a 'stub' could be created so that TakePhone could actually BE the default dialer... so that even when I need to ANY time my phone switches me the the dialer I am actually seeing TakePhone?

    Chalk it up to frustration. I too did this for fun, but having to immediately redo one's work is not what I consider fun. Shimon has graciously offered to fix them for me, but he already does enough. I wouldn't bother if I didn't like the app in the first place and do appreciate his efforts. I will fix and release them once I am convinced it won't be changing again anytime soon.

    Let's try to assess the damage - how do you create those skins ?
    Are you using PRCEdit ? or the "kit" I have ?
    Either way - please send me (contact@shsh.com) all those skins, and I will fix them.
    My guess is the change will be minimal.
    Shimon, I meant no offense. I appreciate your offer, but prefer to do it myself....you do enough. I am still going to wait awhile in case you need to change it again.

    What kit? Where can I check that out?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Hi all,

    Just posted a TAKEphONE fix for the skins backward compatibility issue at www.shsh.com/beta (version 6.50 (b026)).

    This build should show all PAST (low-res) skins as meant to be.

    Regarding newer high-res skins - I had to change the resource ID for the three bitmaps used to show the favourites view, so they will probably show the default (low-res) buttons now. To fix this - those skins should be fixed by changing the resource ID (currently 1007, 1008, 1009) to 1010,1011,1012.
    Anyone reluctant (or unable) to spend the effort/time - email me your skins, and I will fix them.

    Or - you can download the skins creation kit at www.shsh.com/beta (there are low-res & high-res versions), which is just a bunch of bitmap (BMP) files to ompose the kit (you can change those), and a BAT file to run to create the kit out of the bitmap files.

    As always - any comment/question/coplaint - contact@shsh.com or here...

    Thanks, and SORRY !

    Shimon,

    Please accept my apology. You are a stand-up guy. Thanks again for all your efforts.

    Here is a Skin I made Thanks to MattTarr's Side Bar. It has a Blue Glass TwoTone Look. And thanks Simon for the TakePhone Skin Maker.

    Thanks for the nice skins everyone. Is there a way to change the background color of selected items? For example selected text in the find form is yellowish green and a selected button (i.e., FAV.) is orange. I would like to change these to something a little more pleasing. For buttons just an outline of the selected button would be nice.

    Shimon any possibility of this?

    another "skin" request would be bgcolor. I guess this would be most easily done via a BMP... perhaps just create a 320x320 bmp to use as the BG.

    also in the call log screen... what about just color coding the IN vs OUT instead of using a non-customizable ICON.

    FONT color. I realize that moving to bitmap text isn't really feasable, but is we could choose the color that would be a good step in the right direction.

    and of course smaller fonts ;o)

    p.s. here's my latest skin. Very similar to my previous one's just some minor tweaks.

    What about the one that I asked you for, the Palm look one with the side bar also using the Palm look, any possibility??
    thanks again for your hard work (and sharing...)

    Hi all,

    To reply on all those skin requests - I will try to add as many of these, but only after I am done with initially releasing this beta.

    Hope you understand...

    Yes - if you plan on using any of the new hi-res skins.

    You can install over existing version.

    Mahootzki... I'll work on it this evening...
    It ain't gonna be perfect because the PALM-LOOK requires bitmap text. Whereas TakePhone uses actual text. But I'll work it up tonight (if the kids let me ;o)
