How did you do it so fast? Man, that's awesome.

My only suggestion for the Chiclet one is to make the keys a little less rigidly square on the corners, but that's not really a big deal. It's one of my favorites!

Edit: Just tried this new Galaxy keyboard out, and this is by far the best one I've ever used. I am shocked that it could somehow get better with an HD skin. This is great.

Wow, Zen, I'm going to have to add my own praise for the Galaxy skin. Looks simple yet sleek. Well done.

I believe it just needs bold fonts and drop shadows on the letters, but that hasn't been enabled on the skins yet has it?

Wow, I see there's so much love for Galaxy! :D Thank you all.

Here it is then, an updated Galaxy for high-res displays. Download:

If your device doesn't need the hi-res version, I suggest you download the previous version I uploaded before. It's half the filesize.

Yes, we're waiting for Cyril on that one. ;) As soon as the xml spec and the theme parser are updated, I'll make the changes. Drop shadow with emboss effect needs x-y offset values though, so I'm not sure if that's too much work for Cyril to implement.

That's it folks. Now going back to my trusty old Chiclet, see if I can work on it some more :P

Thanks. I was indeed going back and forth between 3 and 4 pixels chamfer, and still can't decide. Crazy how 1 pixel can be a world of difference :shock: Maybe for the hi-res I'll make it 4px chamfer and leave the medium-res at 3px as it is now. I kinda like the rigid feel. :)

As comparison, iPhone, Galaxy, HTC have theirs at 4px; iPhone 4 doubles it to 8px; while the Droid/MotoBlur stays sharp at 2px.

Just curious, what's the difference with the hi-rest and the regular version? Do I have to have a special phone/screen to see the difference, because I can't seem to tell just by looking. I'm on a Samsung Vibrant.

Love the orange highlight one. Nice job, again Zen.

Hi-res skin contains images optimized for hi-resolution screens (like yours). Otherwise the mid-res images are scaled to fit the screen size, which makes them more blurry. Actually with this skin (due to the colors used) the mid-res scaled images also look fine, but the hi-res is better ;)
