    Skins in Google play are called launchers. You need the launcher apps before you install the different skins. My 2 favorite are Go launcher and ADW launcher. Check it out

    Google play reads that they are for all sense devices. Says nothing about needing a launcher. My phone is not rooted. And I like everything about my phone, juss want to chsnge skin to pink. I'm so confused.

    Do you mean that you want the writings, battery & apps to be in pink?? If that's the case, you need to root the phone. THere is no other way.
    Which one in particular are you looking at? Give me the link and I'll tell you what is needed.

    Hey I actually like the link you gave at xda!! Thanks! I think I'll use it!
    For you to install it, it's pretty simple.
    First download 'Astro file manager'. That will allow you to install the skin you want. After that download the file that is in the xda forum and make sure the extension is .apk and not .zip. If it's .zip, just change it to .apk manually.
    Once downloaded, transfer it on the root of your SD card.
    Then open the Astro manager and long press the file you just transfered. It should give you an option to install.
    And voila! Once installed, you can use it!

    Hit the thanks if it helped ;)

    It's pretty simple. Just copy this Pink Passion.apk file on your sdcard.
    Then run any file explorer on your phone, select sd card go down and press long on that file, you will get a menu and select 'Install'. That's all.

    Hope this may be useful.
