I finally have my XBMC setup almost as I want it (a few tweaks soon to be put in place) and was wondering what skin you all prefer?

I am running Hybrid - a decent mix of a usable skin (read: not too showy) and modern features.

What do you use, and if at all why?

Apologies, Xperience added (to represent variants). I had a play with it, and liked it, but it didn't fully suit me...

I'm a sucker for nicely designed UIs. It's a refined version of ModernUI, some great design choices.

Other skins are OK but a lot of them are very amateurish.

Hybrid has been my skin of choice since Eden, will try Xperience though.

I just use Confluence now. There was one that I can't remember the name of from Eden but it never got updated to Frodo. Xperience 1080 is also nice.

No longer supported by the original author, but updates for XBMC 12 Frodo, by community member Gade, can be found in this thread on the XBMC Forums.

So I'm in the middle of modifying Xperience1080 to suit my needs - adding a photos tab and so on. Damn the homescreen on this is a bitch!

I like Confluence, but PM3 works well on my bedroom XBOX outputting 480P (why go 720 on a 19 inch?).

      Dbrand sets up its first retail shop inside a Samsung store in Toronto
      by Ather Fawaz

      One of the most well-known skin-makers today is dbrand. The company creates skins that can be applied to devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets, and their accompanying accessories. Up till now, dbrand has entirely done business through its online store but that is seemingly set to change.

      At the Samsung Store in Eaton Center, Toronto, dbrand has set up what appears to be its first retail store. There, customers will have a chance to check out the available skins ahead of purchasing them. Dbrand will also offer free skin applications on the spot. Though on the face of it, the offer seems to be Samsung-exclusive, you could try your luck with taking a dbrand skin to the store and getting it applied to your device.

      Dbrand's first store could be a promotion for the upcoming Galaxy S20 in partnership with Samsung. But given how AKG (a subsidiary of Samsung) is the only third-party company that the South Korean giant has partnered with, it's hard to put a pin down on a potential partnership between dbrand and Samsung.

      On the other hand, this opening could be foreshadowing the company's plan to open retail stores elsewhere in the future. Should this be the case, customers might get a first-hand experience of dbrand's available skins before ordering them online. Subsequently, this might further lend to the firm's already growing popularity.
