    I am an IT Manager for a software development comp
    I have a few questions about theming apps. I don't know much about Android apps, but was thinking about looking into theming some. Before I do, I want to find out if it is worthwhile or if it will be constant re-theming after every update.

    When an app is themed (like the Revolution Facebook version for example)
    • Can it be updated through the market or released APK?
    • If updated through the market, will it be overwritten when the app updates?
    • Do market updates only change the pieces needed or do they replace the whole app?
    • Are themed apps always complete versions or are they sometimes just the images and other parts that were themed?

    Dunno if it applies to everyone but I'm running the Big DX serenity blue and the Themed LPP will not let me update in the market unfortunately. Thinking about flashing back.

    They are quick to theme new updates if you want to wait for that, or you could just uninstall and reinstall from the market to get the latest version.
