Looks like Tama is already working on skin support:

First theme!

We have to wait a little while longer until he updates with theme support though.
Also, based on the looks of this mockup, he really does have a good relationship with HTC now. Hey flipclock!

I don't dig the flip clock, but then, I am perfectly happy with my smaller clock and look forwards to the update with the theming kit.

I would like the templates to knock up themes in Eclipse as soon as he has them ready so I can do an awesome steampunk clock...

He just released the template for skinning the widget. It's on his twitter.

Thanks mate. I can at least start playing around with designs before the full kit comes out and see how they look.

I have ideas for rather ornate backgrounds taking the best from the steampunk world. Now to search my Second Life textures and certain web sites I know for components...

I assume you mean the rather naughty ones I did with that grin? ;)

I am thinking of a dark brown photo plate texture for the background then find some way of decorating the number panes with some kind of filigree...

I have also found some nice steampunk background textures on a CC license through deviant art, so that could also be a possibility for later additions.

I'm just worried this skinning will slow down the phone itself.

Someone asked and he said no earlier today. However, every phone reacts differently. I really wish there was a way to rename the file and have 2 back ups. 1 of the new and one of the old.

There is, just grab the version you have backed up and transfer it onto your desktop, rename it, and transfer it back onto your SDcard. Then just backup the new version and your set.

I'll give that a shot.

Songs theme sample

Just a sample image from the Songs theme I am working on.

Maybe I should make them slightly transparent or does Beautiful Widgets set the transparency itself? I dunno.

The numbers are gonna be a PITA for me to do. I might just tint them an appropriate colour and have done with it. :p

It worked. I renamed one old and the new one new.
LOL.
That will make them easier to find.
