With the new version of UCCW it is easier than ever to create and share skins.
Apks of skins can be created from within app itself.
You don't need to know coding to make apks of UCCW skins. And its free.
Multiple skins can be combined in one apk.
The resulting apk can be uploaded to Google play to share with the world.
Advantages of Apk skins:
1) Easier to install, uninstall.
2) Easier management of skins. Multiple skins in one apk.
3) Apk skins have limited customization. So the users can customize the skin to their liking without deviating from the basic structure and look of the original skin.
4) No dependence on SD card.
5) Users are familiar with apks.
6) Ability to upload in google play. People can rate themes. Creators can easily provide updates. Creators can also earn money for their work. Skins are easily available just by searching for UCCW skins in Google play.
Here is how its done.
