Learn to Make a Skin for Sense 3.0
There are many mixed feelings regarding HTC Sense. Some people really love it, and some people absolutely hate it. There are even those who think it’s just mediocre. Wherever your preferences may fall, you still probably enjoy making your Sense look unique. Because let’s be honest, who wants their phone to look like everyone else’s? That is why we are here on XDA—to make these devices look and behave amazingly.
As anyone running Sense knows, you can download a skin from HTC or use one of the three built in Skins to make your device a little more unique. What if that isn’t enough? You could go to the Google Play Store and download one of the amazing Skins off there. But again, what if that skin has just that one little thing that isn’t exactly to your liking?
XDA Recognized Themer knightwolf123 may just have your answer. He has created an assortment of 17 different skins you can download. And if you can’t find quite what you are looking for, he has gone so far as to type out a guide to create your own. He also includes instructions on turning your favorite theme into Sense skin, with permission of course.
Both guides are very easy to follow and outline all of the details needed to create your own Skin. This makes it very easy for you to get in and get your hands dirty. Maybe thanks to knightwolf123‘s guides, you will create the next popular Sense skin on XDA. Continue to the original thread to check out his gallery of skins, and hopefully learn a little something while you’re at it.
