I made a few flip clock skins that I thought I would share with the community that I've gotten so much from. In the event that somebody wants to alter and/or redistribute these skins, please feel free to do so without asking.

DISCLAIMER
Use of these skins is your responsibility; I take no responsibility and offer no warranties, guarantees, etc.

Questions and help with these skins is something I might be willing to do when I have time, but if I don't answer your question, don't blame me.

These are merely skins for a widget I had no hand in creating. If you have questions about the widget rather than about my skins, http://lock2.wordpress.com or the "Dream Q&A" subforum are more appropriate places to get support for the widget than this thread.

INSTALLATION
These skins are for the Weather Widget Donate app found here:
http://www.cyrket.com/package/com.androidapps.widget.weather2

To install the skins:

1. Download the above widget (free won't cut it, you gotta pay a whole buck fifty) from the market.
2. Download your skin of choice.
3. Place the skin's zip file in the "/sdcard/prettyweather-googlecode-com/clock" directory. If you have installed the above widget, this directory will already exist.
4. Click the weather widget icon from your app drawer to see the widget's options menu. Choose "install skin from SD" near the bottom of the menu. Choose your skin of choice. Click "ok."
5. Return to the desktop. Wait 10 seconds or so for refresh.

ATTENTION!!!
****These are LOW RES screenshots from ddms. The skins look MUCH better on the phone!****


The screenshots are in the same order as the download links below. More skins available in the next post.

SCOREBOARD INSTRUCTIONS:
If you want a scoreboard skin featuring the logo for YOUR favorite team, do the following (requires decent editing software that supports PNG transparency and introductory level image editing knowledge)...
1. Download the scoreboard.zip skin
2. Open it. You will see an extra file not normally in skin files titled "flip_clock_bg_noteam.png"
3. Load it into Photoshop, Gimp, etc
4. Slap your favorite logo on top
5. Save as "flip_clock_bg.png" overwriting the existing Trail Blazers background file
6. Zip it all back up and place on your SD as per the normal installation instructions.

What am I doing wrong? I bought the widget on the market, installed it on my home screen, pushed the glass.zip file to .../clock/glass.zip, dropped the default skinned widget in the trash can and re-installed the widget on the home screen. It is still coming up with the default skin. Must I delete the default skin? Rebooting didn't help.

Yeah, no need to push any files, delete any files, or any of that jazz. The widget has the option to choose a skin from its settings menu.

Install instructions in first post now more detailed and thorough.

Edit: requests closed for now

Anybody have requests?

I'm kinda tapped on ideas for clock skins, but I'm totally still in the mood to work up something new.

I'm still a novice photoshopper and skinner. I can't promise that your request will be something I'm capable of creating, but it can't hurt to try. Let's see if anybody has any requests and which request(s) I can manage to whip up.

If any other skinners, themers, or photoshoppers want to throw in their efforts and fulfill some requests, please do.
