As I promised, here it is. Themes 2 for Windows Phone, the first public beta.
This is a rewrite of the original Themes application, and being a rewrite, it's completely new and improved, with very little remaining from the original. In this case, that's a very good thing. Here's what's new:
- On device themes. Everything is on device, from choosing the theme to applying it. This makes it much faster and easier to use.
- Mix and match themes and tiles
- Download the latest themes through the new Themes Gallery.
- For rooted devices, there is now an experimental "live tile" feature for messaging icons.
It's early and experimental, but it's certainly a step in the right direction. Really hope you guys like it, it's been fun to work on.
For theme designers, I'd super appreciate it if you contacted me (comments, twitter, contact form, email, etc) about getting your theme in the gallery. The more themes, the merrier, of course!
All feedback, thoughts, suggestions, do let me know below. Thanks a lot everyone!
