Initial release of BetterEmulatorSkins for Windows Phone →∞ Fri, 13 Jul 2012 · Comments
Basically allows you to change the skin of the Windows Phone emulator. There already is an application that does the same, but I didn’t really like it (scrolling is awkward, some skins are obviously upscaled from low-res images and thus blurry) so I set out to make my own. It doesn’t have as many skins yet, but the ones it has are all high-quality since they’re based on my PSDs, and as a bonus it doesn’t require any installation, so no harm in trying.
Took two days to make, though most of it was spent polishing the design and deciding on how to implement the skins (you can make your own!). The basic functionality is pretty easy to make, even for me who just got into coding. This is my second application, actually, the first one is a Windows Phone app that I started three weeks ago and submitted to Marketplace on Tuesday.
