[Skin] Thumbcal – Barreto Sense updated
This great thumbcal skin created by HelderJr just got updated to version 1.4.1 for WVGA. Graphic fluidity has improved much compared to previous versions amongst more improvements. Have the look and feel of Sense UI on a light app that runs smooth on your Windows device.

I decided to make a skin for Thumbcal that is inspired on HTC´s Sense and GTX layout. I really didn´t like the standard button bar icons of the program, so I made new ones also.
I tested this skin on Thumbcal versions 1.3.5 and 1.4.1. They work pretty well on them. Tested on my Touch HD.
How to install:
Copy the file skin.Barreto Sense.zip to Thumbcal folder. Open Thumbcal and select the skin via Settings menu. Do not unzip the file, put it as you downloaded on Thumbcal folder.
I suggest also selecting through Settings menu the Helvetica Neue 35 Thin font.
Continue on to the skin thread for more information.
