I'm curious too why you don't want to code
that project seems relatively easy....like the only coding you'd actually need is the drawer and the rest is just xml

as i do more with this design, the more i see possibilities (is that a word? its so late...) for cool features and stuff, which means i probably will end up coding it now...but who knows.

new screen; drawers closed, and one of at least 3 LCD layouts that will be selectable from the new drawer:

Very nice skin. You played with a stick mode yet? Nice approach with the vertical buttons. Can't wait to see more.

stick mode looks okay. I'd be more excited with a few more details on there. Layout looks fine. Both the stick and the main mode need a bit more "glossy" effect to them. Its kinda dull if you know what I mean. Still looks good for the early going.

Personally I like the "dull plastic" effect. It's kinda like a dusty plastic. To tell you the truth the stick mode doesn't really do justice to the skin. It's good but not as good as the rest of it. And Manta is a fitting name.

I agree - keep the "dusty plastic". The main has an awsome design..if you can transform that to the stick mode it'll be cool.

IMO you should trash that ugly purple color and go for red as the default. red would be an awesome, eye-catching color and would mesh smoothly with the contrasting plastic.

not bad, the depth isn't fluid across the design though, parts look paper thing and others bulked up, also i don't dig the highlights on your glass too much... stick mode is looking pretty sweet, have too see it develop. Overall, good job, a few things that I don't enjoy personally, but hey, keep up the good work.
