Staff review


The newest trend in winamp listening pleasure.


quite nice - main pros is its tasty simplicity. but i've found also one very annoying bug.. when i start winamp with this skin (windowshade and normal view) it has status of playing file (pause button instead of play) but nothing is actually being played :( only way to start a file then is pressing 'x' or playing via playlist. annoying - October 14, 2004 by Kuba Bogaczewicz

Nice - Very nice theme. Not exactly the most original design (not like you copied it- it's just a common idea), but some nice ideas. I like the "expander" in windowshade mode. Definitely worth downloading. - July 11, 2004 by James Brown

potential... - Well.. could've been good. The gold buttons don't change with the different colour themes, making this skin have one, plain look. Easy to use, but it doesn't quite keep up with the others.. (but Pete's whole 'planet series' is absolutely amazing! I hope he keeps making them until he uses all the planets... I know I'll keep downloading them) - June 1, 2004 by Whitney Bell

good but.. docking? - i like this skin.. but did anyone else have docking problems with it? the playlist wont dock underneath the main window for some reason. am i the only one with this problem? - January 18, 2004 by maddie s

Female Friendly - As a woman I want my skin to do 2 things, look nice on my desk top and be as simple as possible. This is great for me, great colors to match my mood. The thinger is a no brainer. Sweet and simple! - November 16, 2003 by Khara OTaryn

=) - pretty nice, easy to understand.. - October 6, 2003 by kko n

Won me over 2 - To the girl who said she keeps coming back to this, I couldn't agree more. This has everything I want on a WinShade mode (volume/seek control, clean font, media library, playlist) and even retracts to take up even less space! Only thing I wish for is darker color themes, but otherwise this skin is top notch. - June 11, 2003 by Tom Runyon

smooth! - nice skin, too bad the fat lcd takes up so much space....the counter is nice, but huge! good shade mode, i like the collapsible feature! - May 27, 2003 by David May

Windows ME - i have Windows ME as well and the skin works fine, with no little black spots. This is also my favorite skin creator and everyone who likes this one should check out Mercury and soon Jupiter! Great job on all you skins man. - May 12, 2003 by Aaron Hahn

The Shade won me over! - I keep coming back to this skin because the Shade is perfect! This thing is even retractable! If you work a lot on your computer and can't have Winamp get in the way of things, download this skin now! - April 9, 2003 by Jennifer Garcia

Smooth egg. - LOL. Good keep it up! - March 5, 2003 by Sikander Shahjahan

Out of this world - Superb skin, absolutely love, nice size and shape and the default color is superb. Hope #3 & #4 come as good as this one! only thing missing is the skip section on the track time, but not a biggie - March 1, 2003 by Andrew Whitelocks

Brilliant! - Easily the most complete and elegant skin ever. Using the compact winshade always on top is absolutely perfect for use at work. Great work! - February 17, 2003 by Jim Reeck

"wonder skin" :-) - This skin is FANTASTIC. I have tried other but none come close. The windowshade mode is brilliant. It fits perfectly, looks good, clear to read, easy to use and the play buttons can be removed so it takes up even less space!!!! WOW. Then the normal mode just looks cool and the glass effect rocks. Again well laid out and easy to use. - January 26, 2003 by Adam Kimber

not bad - nice could use a better color though - January 15, 2003 by Nick Jean

Good, but not best. - This skin is good.. but try D-Shock! It's quite similar but very very better, with a third "Sticky" mode. - January 12, 2003 by Stefano Bagnatica

my favorite skin so far - i was finding myself wishing the playlist worked on the old skin. which winamp still offers for download.. so i clicked on your site. and then found this updated version (the playlist works YAY). You might try removing the older version. - January 9, 2003 by graig smith

ok - It looks great over darker colors, but when I have over something lighter, it looks... what's the word... ummm... not as good. I need a thesaurus... - January 2, 2003 by Joe Wakefield

ok but - i really like this one... i dl mercury too. However... when i change the color scheme, the buttons dont change color to match!! i really like the blue setting, but it looks ackie with yellow buttons! other than that- its great - January 1, 2003 by jenn lowery

Very Nice - I really like this skin, you did a great job. I'm most happy that it is easy to find the buttons...Perfect for The Aquabats! - November 15, 2002 by Malcolm Macrae-Gibson

good, but.... - the playlist editor crashes with this skin....the other skins i've downloaded recently do not have this obviously, it's the skinners problem and not winamp3 program therefore, i will love using winamp now that i know it's the certain skins.....but i do give you 4 stars for the design and effort...i don't know why some skins crash the playlist, but it obviously must be part of the skinning process missing something.... - October 29, 2002 by Michael Schaefer

Creative - This guy must have a creative mind of doing this shape and the style......Simply Marverlous - October 22, 2002 by Veng Keong Madcat

really 4.5 stars - The winshade mode is awesome (especially when the control panel is minimized)! It looks great too. The color themes could use some work though. Try changing the entire skin instead of just the skin and the blue looks more purple than blue. - October 21, 2002 by P C

Erm..... - I'm not so sure about this one! It looks morelike a Chiapet or a Tamagotchi! Maybe even that crappy Pokemon shit! - October 19, 2002 by Matt Garforth

That must be - .....THE UGLYIEST THING EVER!!! but it works well and i like the sliding opitons. That deserves a three but you need something.... something like.... COLORS. other than colors and the shape you did good. - October 19, 2002 by Kc H.

Nice font - Window design's a bit for me, but I wish more skins would use smart fonts like this one does. Clean, modern, nice to read. - October 16, 2002 by Adam C

borrrrrrrrrrringggggggggggggggg - this skin is a total mess it's size is small the colour combination is totally screwed - October 9, 2002 by born to be wild

Seriously smooth - A very slick looking skin, very nice colours too! - October 8, 2002 by Kathy Stewart

Oh Yeah - This is by far to date the best skin I've used. This is a must to download!! I have no complants! - October 8, 2002 by Chirs Walker

Neat stuff - This is one of the neatest skins I have ever seen! The layout of the buttons is user friendly and the panel is so clear...!!! - October 7, 2002 by Shawn Liu

hmmms - little big, and the winshade is a little long - October 7, 2002 by Hideo Kojima

very very very good - this is a great skin i especially like the winshade mode and the usability of this skin i got some questions , though: how come the draw with the toggle buttons "wobbles"? and why do u have a different font displayed on ur screenshot than the skin is showing on my pc? otherwise it's great, though good job :-) - October 6, 2002 by One Two

Best Skin! - Finally, a usable, easy-to-read skin that looks nicer than the original. - October 6, 2002 by Laszlo Korossy

soooo cute! - this is sooo cute!!! and it doesnt take forever to figure out what buttons do what. good work!! - October 5, 2002 by Tiffany W.

I LOVE IT!!! - GREAT SKIN!!! Nice and clean. Everyting is easily accesible. I know where everything is. Finally someone is able to make a visually appealing skin, while at the same time allowing you to tell which button is which. Great job! It's going to be my skin for a long time. - October 3, 2002 by Peter PEZ

application applicator? - very functional... but there's no way i'm keeping something on my desktop that looks this much like a tampon or home pregnancy test. Koalla2 (Kaolla?)is it for now... - October 3, 2002 by eracerbit eracerbit

It's so darn CUTE - Well I have a new favorite... It's so cute I just wanna hug it. Very nice windowshade dude! - October 1, 2002 by c settles

Clean, easy to use - Seems W3 is encouraging people to outdo each other on skins-I've seen some pretty ones but can't find half the buttons. This one's easy to work, looks decent, and with the slide-out of the various functions, even acts like a virtual MP3 device. There's hope for skin-creators yet! - September 30, 2002 by Rick B

I got wood! - GORGEOUS. Real style, and looks like it'd make a beautiful piece of hardware. - September 29, 2002 by Christian Valle

Best winamp skin ive ever used - Ive been using winamp for a hell of a long time but I have only now registered online. I did so only in order to say that this skin gives me the best winamp experience ive ever had. thanks!! - September 28, 2002 by Charlie Mezak

nice and compact - Everything kind of slides in and folds out. Really well organized and user friendly. - September 26, 2002 by Another Guy

got it right - man - this one is climbing my short list FAST!!! Way to go!!! - September 24, 2002 by Ken Williams

Almost CooL - Great design and themes. Look pretty cool but...You should add somethings more than main window. I need wonderful playlist and ML. - September 24, 2002 by Keetakawee Punpeng

Business - Business... Raw business... but the playlist doesn't work... or I'm a retard... - September 24, 2002 by Chris Waller

Sweet! - The only skin to replaced the ultra cool YAWS (yet another winamp skin) for WinAmp2 on my machine! - September 23, 2002 by Huy Nguyen

This is a fantastic skin - Slick, easy to read. This one rocks!!! - September 22, 2002 by Sebastian Scheel-Edelmann

Nice Skin - This is a tight skin nice job. I like how the thing on the side andbottom slide out. One thing, it needs some colors that stand out, like a blood red! But overall nice skin! I'm usingit right now. - September 22, 2002 by Sean Gfg

A little Suggestion - i already reviewd this skin and i've been thinkin' a way to make it even better. I wish you can put the thinger window inside de main screen right were you change the color themes. It's just my view of takin' neptune beyond perfection but do what you wanna do anyway. Keep makin' skins - September 21, 2002 by Roberto Cuellar Cuellar

Unreal - I just want to reach into the screen and pull this baby out! This is similar to the F1 Ferrari...not much room for improvement. Deserves my 5 star rating! - September 21, 2002 by Michael Stark

I love it! - I think it's great, it even comes with color themes! Good job :) - September 21, 2002 by Meg B

default - this is my default skin :)) winshade mode+always on top = thats the stuff! - September 20, 2002 by Tihomir Pantovic

Nice feel and look - Could use some themes. good animation on the eq. - September 20, 2002 by Sankar Bhanu Gorthi

Beauty..... - This is a beautiful skin! It's VERY CLEAN looking, and the animations are smooth. The little drop shadow is an added bonus. Unlike some other skins, all the functions are easily accessed, and WELL LABELED. For improvement, maybe you should make it so that the color themes change the whole thing, rather than just the background. Download this skin, you'll like it. Keep up the good work! - September 20, 2002 by Brandon Llama

none - This skin is great. But one problem though, in winshade mode, the 'previous' button seems to be not working. If that function could be brought back, it will be five stars, since i have no other problems with it. - September 19, 2002 by hi nothing

Hallelujah - This is one NICE skin. Everything's all right there in a very nice layout, and then you activate the Winshade mode, which puts all the essentials at your fingertips, and in a size that fits perfectly where I like to keep it, on top of everything on my screen. The drawer is a nice touch. - September 19, 2002 by Drex Olympus

Frickin awesome!!! - My fave skin so far! I just wish that it had the opacity feature! Please Pete Clark, add the opacity feature!!! - September 19, 2002 by Adam R

Dude...Sweet - Very nice skin. I am fully convinced that if you do not download this skin that you are an idiot. - September 18, 2002 by TJ O'Pootertoot

NEPTUNE - Okay will be civilized.I just love it. really cute except on my computer the plug in would work if i could get 800x600 but my old machine only works with 646 by 480 pixels. Have tryed to alter it once before but it shrunk and goodness knows what. even my fixeruper tried but no.Never mind I can change skins and play music etc. - September 18, 2002 by Sally Fear

goooooood job !!! - is a realy good job congratulations !!! - September 18, 2002 by octavio mora

Sweet!!! My new default skin - awesome...nice and clean and clear, small windowshade mode with playlist and media library buttons (rare these days)...I Love it!!! - September 18, 2002 by Jeremy Prince

It sucks!!!!!!!! - You should be doing something else!!!!!. - September 18, 2002 by Emilio Longoni

Awesome. Well done. - Definitely a feature skin I'd think. It looked a bit ... earth toned and faded from the screenshot but once downloaded I was very pleased and have been using it since. Full mode is clean, pretty to look at, well animated and in general just nice. The windowshade mode is awesome, and the little pull-out menu is genius. Although its definitely cinched 5 stars from me a few things I could ask for. I can live without themes (no really guys, you can) although they are very spiffy and can add flavor. The windowshade is just a tiny trifle too big - a microshade that fits just above the standard menu line would be nice. These are very minor complaints though. Sleek in a liquid sort of way. Well done. Pretty to look at. Well animated. Windowshade mode is a winner. Overall 5 star job. Keep it up! Make skins for every planet! ^_^ - September 17, 2002 by Strasa Acimovic

Extremely smooth - This is a great skin. I thought the screenshot looked great and thought I'd give it a try. I am so glad I did. This skin looks amazing and has so many great little hidden features. I am using XP so I haven't experienced any problems with "black splochs". This is a great skin but I'd have to say that the winshade mode is what really won me over for the skin. It is PERFECT. I like to have a winshade mode that I can leave at the top of the screen, out of the way. Too many people are making winshade modes for their WinAmp 3 skins that are almost just as big as the regular mode itself. The only thing I could ask for with this skin is possibly some different color themes. Other than that, keep up the great work!! - September 17, 2002 by James McLaren

In line with the greats - The most dled skins are like this. The handheld player design with a roundy shape. Very much like cannes in general. I think the drop shadow on the thinger is a bit much, but over all a nice skin. - September 17, 2002 by Brian Bryce

Very Good! - Oh my, all components skinned nice winshade omost got five stars but I need some themes! - September 16, 2002 by Sandman ...

Nice and smooth - Nice plugin !! I like the shape and simplicity,and also visible buttons..Why aren't "play/stop..." moving? Something they does,but moving style of butt.EQ is better. My english is horrible.Sorry :-) - September 16, 2002 by Ladinek Smolik

nice - i liked it but i have black spots around it too... - September 16, 2002 by Josh !

3.5 - when i saw the pic i was like "wow, i've met the skin of my dreams!" But little did i know i was in for a dissapointment. the skin looks good, stable and cool in the pic. unfortunately it's not like that in real life. The black splochs everywhere (i have Windows ME, like Dan Burt mentioned about Windows ME) are driving me crzay. because of those i dont really use the skin much anymore. you gotta work on it and think of who is going to download it and what services they r gonna have, i mean grenrally, overall. - September 16, 2002 by heart attack

Not as nice as I'd hoped - Don't get me wrong, it's nice, but I have big black spots around it because I'm on WinME instead of 2K or XP. That needs to be fixed. - September 16, 2002 by Dan Burt

very good - This is one of the best skin in we3 collection, I belive you correct some imperfection in a next version - September 16, 2002 by Antonio Riva

Decent skin. - I'm not over-keen on the normal display, but the winshade looks really cool. - September 16, 2002 by Alan Clark

Top Stuff - This is one of the best skins i've found for Winamp 3 so far. It look's beautiful and is very functional. Keep up the good work! :-) - September 15, 2002 by Philip Morgan
