1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I am thinking of trying this for my first theme. It looks a lot like all the other metal themes and this probably doesn't give a good look, but just thought I would put it out and see what the pros thought. Be gentle this is my first try at this!! If there is interest I could see about doing it, if not, I will just work on it for myself. Sorry nothing loaded yet so I am just giving a little theme title teaser!!!!

    Still rough but just wanted some input before I really got into it!!!!!

    my opinion on chrome themes is they look monochrome. silver/chrome is a hard colour to obtain

    but the more themes the better. looking forward to seeing it

    Xkape is developing a chrome theme for Ultimate Droid 2.3.0
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ul...time-seen-chrome-ud-2-1-a-31.html#post1044846
    Being that it takes alot of memory to get the images to look right he is having a little trouble with the final product taking up to much space on in the system memory. He is working on the fixes right now. The screenshot that I attached is a pic of a first or second draft. A lot of stuff is looking nice with the chrome effect. Some of the images are just inverted images.

    if you enlarge the image that I just posted and check out the icons such as email, messaging, phone, browser, youtube, etc. you will see the chrome effect that he is working on. The drocap is the original icon and the Gmob (the cat) is one that I made because I use that app alot. I couldn't figure out how he got the shiny chrome effect myself.

    I think that you should still develop this theme and since there is already a "Chrome" theme out you could maybe change the name to Stainless Steel or something. :)
