Not Really A Theme But A New Look – Transparent HTC Apps
We all like to theme our devices differently. However, there are times when we simply want to stand out from the crowd by actually uaving less. For these purposes, we have seen a number of Google apps being done in different colors (inverted, etc), but this we had not seen before. XDA member fernando sor brings us transparent HTC apps. Basically, these modded apps will allow you to see the wallpaper that you worked so hard to choose through your most commonly used apps such as the dialer. Only the aforementioned one and the MMS app have been done so far, but this is certainly something interesting to have if you miss your background while using your device. One word of advice, pick a background that will allow you to see the text on your screen because if you happen to choose something with lots of white or black (depending on what colored font you have as default), you will have a rather hard time reading from your screen.
Please leave some feedback for the dev.

Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
