Android Theme for Resco Explorer
Due to the fact that we are always in the quest to make our devices look and feel different, we are in dire need of people who can not only skin the various interfaces, but the apps as well. With this in mind, XDA member Showtime7 came up with an Android looking skin for the ever popular Resco Explorer. For those of you not familiar with it, Resco Explorer is a file explorer replacement for Windows Mobile, which has extended functionality over the regular WM file explorer. The skin was recently updated and some important fixes were added, such as the ability to install this on the Storage Card, saving precious internal device memory in the process.
- I noticed there is some banding in the gradients of inactive icons. Added another CAB which should fix this issue.
- Storage Card installation added.
- Internal Storage installation added as well as the files. All CABs now included in one zip file.
You can find more information about this on the application thread.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
