Take the Dusk Theme one Step Further
If you’re a fan of the original Dusk theme for Manila, or have just started using the Dusk EVO theme for WVGA devices, it might irritate you that not everything on your device is skinned the same way.
Luckily, some of our members have developed themes for popular applications that mirror the Dusk look and feel.
Spigot has created a 3G-enabled WVGA dialer that integrates fully with Manila 2.5. There are several versions available with different color schemes, (a higher version number doesn’t mean an improvement on the first, just that it’s a different theme) including one designed to match the look of the Dusk theme exactly. Have a look in the thread for more details.
If you’re a fan of the Swype keyboard, you might also want to take a look at tacchan23‘s Dusk Skins for Swype. As the name suggests, these go very well with the popular theme, and are available in blue, green, red, pink and black variations. These skins should work in portrait mode on any VGA or WVGA device with Swype pre-installed, although support for WVGA and QVGA is improving, only one skin color has been released for these so far, you can find them in this thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
