More and more people are using their android device or iphone to access online content. Perhaps it would be in wincustomize's interest to consider developing a mobile web version of the site.


Apparently irrelevant.

Don't be, Tim. I think it's worthwhile, and I believe skinners with good graphics skills could do well for themselves with commercial graphics for apps and "Themes" for the mobile apps. They would need an affordable program to apply them, though.

I do see a big problem with Apple's share of the pad market (>80%), though. In that market, any skinning would have to be aimed at alternate OS's, as Windows really missed the boat there.

I also don't think it's a bad idea but I have to ask, "Would having these themes make Stardock or Wincustomize  any money?"  because I think it would cost a ton.

WC is an interesting site in that it is for fans of skinning first and advertising for SD second . .  but the sales of the product is what funds the development for the most part.

If there are any skinning app devs for the mobile market that want to sell or license or work for Stardock . . maybe a discussion would be more viable.

My main point was that I would enjoy being able to  easily read and respond to threads on the forum when I'm not near my computer, but maybe that wasn't clear enough.

 

I hear ya Tim.

Since the iPhone/iPad boom and now Android is what? 700k activations daily worldwide? I think that it is safe to say that people are spending more time out and about with Smartphones and less time sitting in front of a computer. I am one of the aforementioned. The forums on WC are one of the very few sites that is not mobile friendly. I would love to use Tapatalk here. I can type just as fast if not faster on my phone than my laptop.

Someone from Stardock has to realize this is a growing trend that is here to stay, why not tap into it?

Beautiful Widgets is the the first paid app on the Android Market to reach one million downloads. That says people want to customize. Look, I love customizing my desktop as much as the next person and I love WC and the ten years I have been here. I want it here forever! Does anyone else get the sense that there is a 'changing of the guard' of how we do our daily computing coming in the near future?
