Here I made a new skin for HappyTappingKeyboard.

It is only for QVGA Portrait mode.

I dont create the Landscape mode because soon I will buy a new pda with sliding keyboard (Hi HTC Kaiser, where are you?).

However, I included the .psd (PhotoShop) just in case there is volunteer to port it to Landscape mode.

This new skin has bigger button (visually) and more tidy.

Feedbacks are welcome

Delude, the skin must be precisely matched with the original skin dimension. So, no, it is not possible to enlarge the keyboard size without changing the source code.

If you meant to enlarge the button size, well, I tried to maximize it as big as possible. As you can see in my skin, it has 2 pixels distance between buttons.

I can make it to 1 pixel, but it will not look nice ... too densed and cant see the drop shadow

Your keyboard looks great, I was just wondering about changing the size of the whole thing. Would it be an easy thing to do?
