With apologies to lnminente

Rough trial of a touch screen version of MetroColours as requested by joebanana

MetroTouch
Made on MusicBee 2.1.4716


Download  see Reply #13 in this topic

Installation guide (if needed) is available here

I don't have a touch screen, so if joebanana, or anybody else, would test this and leave some feedback, before I clean the images up and do the rest of the Metro colours

Works very well.
I won't comment on the look as of yet since you mentioned you would work on them.
I would LOVE if you coul give the buttons a more modern look. Actually, a Metro look would be awesome.

And finally, I like a light theme (i use Metro Light Cyan) so if you could keep the same colors, that would be definetly wicked.

Do all that, and I'll have a x-mas present sent your way :D

When you say Metro, are you talking Win8 Metro (now Modern), similar to my Wing-ated skin, or are you talking Metro/MetroColours?

A pic, similar to what you would like to see would be great, if you can find one.

Perhaps an interesting design for buttons would be Metro apps' toolbar style (when you right-click the app to access the menus). They're touch friendly, clean, and could be transparent over a dark color unless set to "on" (eg. Play when playing).

I also like that the color of active buttons is only inside the circle - much cleaner than a huge bright blue square in my opinion.

Here's a screenshot of the Metro Reader app:

Thanks for the info mtone
I'm still working through ideas fro this, and as the only touch screen device I have is my phone, it's great to get some other input.

Exactly, I like that very much!

I got this skin for my the PC in my car.  It looks great.  Please keep a dark color choice.  Bright colors are hard on the eyes at night. 

Is it possible to make a playlist selection button or area that can be touched easily?

It's not a current option available in the bitmap skins.
You make the request in the Wishlist, and if Steven makes good with it, I'll add it in.

And I'll be doing a light and dark version  :)

Unfortunately, it's not open source and you have to buy a licence to use it any redistributed software. Freeware or other.
