    These seem to do about the same thing. Does anyone have a mini review of them?

    Do either of these work in the phone app? I tried PalmRevolt and it doesn't carry over into the Phone dialer. I tried SkinUI but it put my phone into white screen status. So I don't know how SkinUI works. Anyone know?

    Palm IIIC -> Palm M100 -> Treo 300 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 700P -> Treo 755P
    Do I count as a Palm addict if I still have my original Palm IIIC?

    SkinUI won't be free when it's out of beta, and the betas expire. I think Dimitry is going to charge $14.95 or something close to that, according to posts on 1SRC.

    I've tried both and definitely like SkinUI better. With PalmRevolt, every third time or so that I opened the program to change a theme, it would cause my Treo 650 to reset. After the reset, PalmRevolt could no longer run since it could no longer access its settings.

    SkinUI has been perfectly stable so far. I tried using the Cobalt theme with both of them, but with PalmRevolt, you couldn't tell which button you had highlighted with your 5-way. With SkinUI, the Cobalt theme is much easier to use in terms of seeing what's currently highlighted.

    Well... It has been a long time since this topic has come up. Who currently is using these apps and which one is better? I am trying out PalmRevolt and I haven't seemed to have any issues. Is SkinUI way better or should I just get PalmRevolt? thanks for the input. What is everyone currently using?

    I'm using SkinUI and so far, I like it. sometimes the buttons don't have names, but other than that, it looks good and I haven't had any stability issues.

    I'm a PalmRevolt user and I've never had crash problems with it. Occasionally it will lose my registration when I zero-out and restore from a back up, but not every time.
