XmlGui 0.0.5 – Tool for Editing HTC XML Layout File
Programatix updated his application, which you can use to modify the XML layout files used in more recent HTC applications.
The main reason I wrote this small app is to modify the XML layout files used in more recent HTC applications. HTC however defined different format of XML layout files.
Currently, this is what it can do:
