    As you know Levelupstudio the developer of Beautiful widgets is adding skin support. He has created a skin template for people to make there own skins: http://bit.ly/5PN55I

    So i created this thread to see what people could come up with. So far this is what i came up with
    I have working versions on my phone right now using the beta but i cannot take screenshots as i am not rooted

    Do you know if the skins will work with the smaller widget or do you need to create a seperate skin? The blue flip you posted looks great!

    How did you get the skin(s) you created to apply? I created one myself, placed it in the /data/beautifulwidgets/skins folder on my sd card, but it does not show up in my list of "installed" skins; so, I couldn't apply it to test it out. I'm assuming I did something wrong. Suggestions?

    I don't know if it's difficult to do or not, but could someone edit the Naked Droid skin to use the BloodWax font? Or really any other font? The 2.0.1 font makes me cringe.

    You can change the font in the settings. Click the forecast then click menu and scroll down and you will see font

    I've done that; it has no effect on custom themes, only the base theme.

    ok here. upzip "mydroid.zip" and put it in "\data\beautifulwidgets\skins". I also have attached the psd so you can edit the themes for you self if you want.

    I just got this program and I wanted to make my own skin, I edited the files and added a new folder of my skin under sdcard/data/beautifulwidgets/skins then unmounted my sdcard went to add the widget but my custom made one isnt showing up under the Installed skins? How do I get it to show up so that I can test it before I email it to dev so others can get it?
