V2R's Skin Generator v1.0 is a tool that allows you to create, edit and share personalized skins for Pocket PC Phone Edition dialer interface which runs on any Pocket PC Phone Edition 2002 and 2003 such as O2 xda, xda II or PPCW.Net Phone Edition.

While a Phone Edition device does not allow the user to change the Dialer skin, Skin Generator enhances the look and feel of the device by allowing the user to create its own personalized skins, similar to Microsoft's Theme Generator.
Furthermore, it allows you to adjust image properties and also to assign predefined buttons and shapes to better fit in the general look and feel of the skin.

This tool comes packaged with a free PSK (phone skin) installer for Pocket PC Phone Edition that enables you to quickly install the skin with a single click.


  • Easy to use: following only 3 easy steps, you can create your own personalized phone skin.
  • Image manipulation: You can modify the display properties of your image and also the buttons and shapes properties.
  • Edit skins: You can load a previously made skin project and modify its settings.
  • Easy Pocket PC deployment: when you finished and saved a skin, you can automatically send it to the Pocket PC Phone Edition. Furthermore, if you don't want to run the application again to deploy your skin on the Pocket PC Phone Edition, you can simply double click on the .PSK to start the automatic deployment of the file to device.
  • Predefined buttons or shapes: This application comes with 19 shapes and 12 predefined buttons from which you can select your preferred one. Also you can create your own shapes or buttons and quickly install them by copying them into the installation folder.

Skin Generator is available for US$ 14.95 from PocketGear and also includes a trial version. In addition every customer receives 5 credits on V2R Pocket PC Club which includes hundreds of Today Themes and Phone Skins.

Cheers ~ Arne

Does it create the DLL needed for the "down" state on the numeric buttons??

I tried the demo, it's very good actually.  The demonstration while loaded in the editor indicates that the down state is enabled.

Unfortunately, this product is not completely compatible with the Windows Mobile 2003 OS for my AT&T SX56 phone. After successfully changing the phone skin, the new skin is permanent. No changes can be made thereafter.
