New Icons for Androkkid "TransparentFrames" finally!

These new Icons should work better for those of you who have like me found the standard winmo icon ugly and pixelated.
I have always thought that some of the IPhone's attraction was the beautiful icons that were uniform in size and shape. So I made my own for Ifonz (based on other people's graphic work). When Androkkid came along I loved the scenic wallpapers you could use but I thought the beautiful scenery of the wallpapers became too cluttered with the IPhone style icons and that the square icons ruined the effect of the beautiful wallpapers.
So these new icons are designed to preserve a uniform style and at the same time be better integrated into the "scenery" by using transparency.
I hope that some of you will have a look at these and tell me what you think
PS If you resize these, they will not work. If they are resized by Androkkid they are fine.
If you want to use these and need other icons, ask me on the themes Thread and I'll see what I can do.

the icon files

Finally the iconfiles!
Please consider to try them out, I don't think they are as beautifull as some of the Iphone like icons, like the ones made by bluemetalaxe or Stereo's Leopard, but when you see them glide across the scenery in Androkkid they feel much more integrated into the scenery than the Iphone like icons which leave kind of a square hole in the scenery, however beautiful they are. So what do you have to loose, give 'em a try:

Edit have added new iconfile today 15/12-09 they are now checked out for "white and black" holes and should be okay

Transparent Icons

These look nice, thank you very much! Any chance you could add a couple more icons to the package (96x96): SMS, Voicemail, Calender, Missed Calls? Or, just tell me how to make these myself and I'll take a stab at it, there's a few web icons I'd like, too. Thanks again!

I'll gladly tell you how I made these, but first here are some suggestions for icons, but what do you mean by an icon for "missed calls" In Androkkid you get a small red circle with the number of missed calls you have. If you think about something else give me a hint
Hope you like these

What is problematic with winmo is that it doesn't support "white". In an icon with transparancy, pure white will show up like a black hole in the icon so you have to substitute white with another light white-ish color.

Another problem is this: When a graphic program like gimp or photoshop compresses a png to a smaller size. it conserves the smoothness of the png by making semitransparant pixels, these are not supported either and show up like white holes in the icons.

If you just index the png it will avoid the semitransparent pixels, but it will scale down with a very crude and pixelated result.

My way around this is to put the compressed png in a frame filled with a very nondescript greyish color. Then I have to eraze all the grey color and decide pixel by pixel which pixels have enough color to let them remain.
This is why it takes so much time to resize these icons. I have to do this every time. In the icon files I have uploaded you can find both an empty and a filled frame.
If you want to try this for yourself you are very welcome to do so but remember that you have test each icon on your phone to find "holes" before you publish them.
PS I haven't tested the last batch of seven icons yet but I will test them before I publish a zip file with extra icons.
PS Gimp is a fantastic graphic program which you can download for free here
Best of luck :)

Icons

These all look great, and wow that was fast! By "missed calls" I should have put "Call History" or "Call Log", but it looks like you got the gist with the icons because they're perfect! I'm probably pushing my luck, but maybe a "Tasks" icon? It's the only request I can think of off the top of my head. I'll check out the app you suggested tonight and see if I can create a few "Web" graphics, thanks again!

There already is a tasks icon in the icon pack(see thumbnail below), but did you have something else in mind?

I have some specific icon requests if possible. I'll also be attempting my own icon pack in the near future.. I'm waiting for this quarter's classes to end first. ;)

SMS like above in the bubble, but instead of a blue bubble, a green one like the MMS.
A voice mail icon
Internet Connection Sharing
Clean Ram
MySoftReset
A lock
3 Icons for the Sound Profile widget
Sims 3 (but I can live without this one) ;x


Thank you so much.. These Icons look great, thats why I hope you can make these so my phone can look even better. ;)

New Theme

Am I the first to produce a new theme for Androkkid?

Let me introduce Obsidian, for those who might prefer a more businesslike theme.

It has been developed on a QVGA screen so I have no idea whether it will work on other screen resolutions.

Home.jpg Contacts.jpgSettings.jpg Music.jpgGames.jpg Tools.jpg Edit.jpg

Just unzip and place the Obsidian folder in the Androkkid Themes folder. It will then be available to select under Settings
The Title buttons (more than shown) can be found in the Obsidian theme folder along with a blank if you wish to make different titles (I can make others if you aren't able to do that). I set the size of the Title buttons to 128 x 32 in Androkkid settings and they have to be positioned, as for any other icon. They can also be used as shortcuts as per normal icons. For example, in my setup, I have the Contact button pointing to my address book.

The 'Lock' Icon on the Home page is not part of the theme but has been designed to match. I have included that icon in the Obsidian theme folder, but none of the other icons.

8 December 2009
Obsidian.zip updated for compatibility with Androkkid 1.2.0.0 (inclusion of TopBarIcons,png) and correction of transparency problem with Edit & Delete buttons

15 December 2009
Obsidian.zip updated with modified graphics

If you like my work, please feel free to show your

I'll see how quick I can get around to make these
There already is a cleanram icon (the one with the broom) but if you don't like it I can make another. For SoftReset I use the icon from the icon pack called "exit" (I use "Slide2shutdown" myself) There also is a bluelock (ScreenLock) in the iconpack I have that one in green and red too
I don't know which sound widget you mean, please give me a link or something.
Here are some examples, tell me what you think..
