Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

Skin Black´n Blue Grill for WM
This new skin presented by XDA member sponge_worthy has a completely re designed style for your Windows Mobile device. You can use it in conjunction with psShutXP / Thumbcal / Resco File Explorer / S2U2 / CHT2 and includes wall papers and icons sets as well, even the dialer has a new skin so you can play with the multiple options that the developer’s work has to personalize your device according to your applications.

I thought I would share my current theme/skin in case anyone wants at least a part of it. I’m currently using an NRG Rom for my Tilt2 so the sense icons started with that general theme. It bugs me when all my icons do not match, so I skinned several programs that I use all the time so that everything flows well together. I should mention that some of these skins (power radio and thumbcal for example) may be WVGA only.
Update: Sense Icons, Comm Manager, Notification Icons, and Phone skin download link added to second post (Nov 6)

Look at the bottom of the first 4 posts for the attached cab/zipped files. Also the Earth and sun and moon wallpaper you see on the S2U2 screen shot is in the wallpaper.zip file.
My taskbar is a modified version of the m6silver color taskbar so most of the credit goes to him for that. I’ve changed the notification icons to match the sense theme I’m using. You will also notice that I use a couple of dusk images (like several graphics in the S2U2 theme and the Clock Background for Sense) and I don’t want to take credit for that.
