Smile [APP] Themes for Windows Phone

Hey
Ducking out of coursework for a minute to write this post.
I've constructed a little hack using fiinix's custom tile system. It's actually super simple, where it loads generated data in for tiles, pins them, and then upon loading, redirects the user to the app.



It's a little glitchy and could use some improvements, but I figured I'd get it out before the holiday season Feel free to share any thoughts, comments, bug reports, etc., and feel free to share themes here, too.

As for the source, I don't have it packaged up currently, but if anyone wants a look, let me know and I'll share it. Nothing fancy.

Here's the links:

Default Delta Theme

Let me introduce you:

The Windows Phone 7 Delta Theme.




This Theme is based upon the Photographs of ... myself. So basicly I tried to bring several new aspects into the design of Windows Phone without ruining it with odd-looking glass effects etc.

Hope you like it!


Shameless-Advert: As stated above, Photographs are done by myself, check my portfolio at klaus-widraw.de.

To download the xap visit the theme thread.

Cheers.

It's really well put together, however there are a couple of things wrong
  • No Large Tiles (eg Calender)
  • No Email Tiles (Individual or Linked)
  • Some System Tiles are Image Less (eg Office)

Working on adding some system items and larger icons. Biggest issue here is email, which we can't seem to find a way to link to, as it's on a per-account basis, and we don't know the tokens for them

Not normal. Did you make sure to add /_default to the GUIDs?

Just so I make sure I hear this right your app basiclly just launches itself right away? Also does this mean when I press the start button what is really happening is i am being directed to the homescreen and then the homescreen is directing me to your app?

LOL. that would be a homescreen in layers and I immediately thought of....

Shrek: [peels an onion] NO! Layers. Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers. You get it? We both have layers.
[walks off]
Donkey: Oh, you both have LAYERS. Oh. You know, not everybody like onions. What about cake? Everybody loves cake!
Shrek: I don't care what everyone else likes! Ogres are not like cakes.
Donkey: You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious!
Shrek: NO! You dense, irritating, miniature beast of burden! Ogres are like onions! End of story! Bye-bye! See ya later.
Donkey: Parfait's gotta be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!
anyway, can't wait for the next version with fixes. The background image spanning over tiles is Parfait. thank you!
