Featured Skin, October 3, 2002.

A small, usable skin. Current Version: 0.92

While other skins may excel in the eye candy department Apill cuts to the chase. After all most people use their media player while doing something else. The goal of Apill is a clean, small, useable skin for Winamp 3. Hope you like it.

Notes: Things that remain blue in other color schemes cannot currently be changed. For a complete change log see the readme. Changes in this version:
*Changed player function toggle's inactive state images
*Enlarged video control buttons and changed the vis.
*Added a menu opacity selector menu (left click the thing that looks like an 8 in the EQ (odd place I know, but as good as any))

Apill - Featured Skin, October 3, 2002.

Staff review

It might be small, but it packs a punch.

All the goodness of winamp 3 packed in a small skin. Carefull not to lose this one.


Best. Skin. Ever. - This skin has absolutely everything you could need, and is completely functional. The design is a highly efficient use of its small size. I love it for so many reasons, but mostly because it looks good, works good, and stays out of my way.I downloaded Apill the first time about three years ago, and I've never looked back.:) - February 2, 2008 by Seren Dipity

from you to us - THanks for making this! - September 7, 2007 by brad bowersox

The only skin I use anymore - I love this skin for a very simple reason: it is compact but still very functional. The only problem I have with it is the fact that there are only seven color themes to choose from. Despite that though, I love this skin. - August 21, 2007 by Monica Sherck

Coming Back for More! - Ah, yes, the almighty Apill skin. I've used this skin for more than 3 years. Over the course of three computers and currently, on the one I just currently built. This is a truly amazing skin, as it is 'to the point'. If you ever want it to be out of the way and clean, you can click the [X] on the middle right of the main window. Its a simple skin, clean, compact, and to-the-point as I stated earlier. This is a skin no one should be without. - August 16, 2006 by Miki N

3 years strong - I've been using this skin for a little over 3 years now. I've taken a few breaks here and there to try new stuff out, but I always end up back at "Apill." I have installed it on all 3 of my computers, and will most likely put it on everyone after that. It's very nice for a person like me because I use global hotkeys A LOT. I don't need big buttons or obnoxious UI addins. I just want to see the song title and the song time. This is my ideal skin. If you are someone who doesn't want your winamp skin to interfere with your desktop, Apill is for you. Combined with modern skin options for transparency, global hotkeys, and onHover focus, this skin is unbeatable. - July 3, 2006 by courtney white

Al last! - I believe everything I was looking for is there: small, informative, appealing, cute. Spectrum analyzer is always there, enough info in so little space. Love it. So long looking for the right skin finally paid. Thanx! - April 10, 2006 by aj perez

AWESOME! - it's awesome! it's small~~ useful~ and most importantly, it could display chinese characters!!!! =] love it! - January 15, 2006 by nico lau

Bring on Apill II! - The best skin I've ever used, and without a doubt the best small skin out there. Nice design, pretty and supremely functional. There are a few tweaks it could do with, such as more and clearer color themes (not something I usually make an issue with, but this is a skin that begs for constant use, and as such it should be easier to co-ordinate it with your desktop) and easier access to the ML. However, those are minor quibbles. This skin is the closest thing to perfect I've seen. - April 14, 2005 by Benedict Frankish

Love it, Update it. - I really do love this skin coz it packs the whole winamp interface in a little beautiful monitor real-estate. When this skin is on, winamp is truly usable because even if "Always On Top", looks beautiful and gives me the rest of the monitor to use for myself. The only reason I gave this skin a rating of 4 stars is because it lacks a "Media Library" button, and like so many skins, doesn't incorporate the Winamp 5 song repeating option. I really wish it gets updated even though I love this skin more than anything else. - February 17, 2005 by Rhythm Obsession

My favourite skin so far - As the title says this is my favourite skin so far although it has one defecite for me: there is no button for the media library in the main window so far. Would be really great if you could add that later. But all in all great work. - December 30, 2004 by Nala Sharman

i love this - i've been looking around for a better skin for quite a while now, but i keep coming back to this one. all the other skins simply have too much other crap going on for my liking; this just hides away at top looking harmless and doing its job. brilliant. - December 5, 2004 by despondentrock_tk __skatepunk_mp3s

by Brian Bryce - 123 - October 27, 2004 by Helena Zimackova

Kickass - Nice player! The only thing really missing is color themes, I guess. And the ability to resize the player. - April 9, 2004 by Luke Muehlhauser

The best there is. Period. - This skin should never have a bad word spoken against it in my opinion. I love it because I can listen to my music and still work on my computer without some huge ass skin taking up the whole screen. Learn how to use the keyboard shortcuts and you will be in heaven with this skin. I strongly recommend it. If I could give more stars, I would. - March 7, 2004 by courtney white

great skin - Excellent. 5 stars - February 24, 2004 by Mike Holm

CAUTION!!! - This one hijacked Winamp on me and I couldn't get another skin on it. Tried deleting it and winamp wouldn't work. After doind an uninstall of winamp including dumping all the skins I had and a re-install it works fine. This skin looks kool but not worth the aggrevation. - November 18, 2003 by Lotti Dawe

GREAT! GREAT! GREAT!!!!!!!! - I love this skin! It blends in with any desktop and is super easy to use! I use a 1028x764 res and it it is the perfect size. Using this skin feels like a ghost in the shadows that awaits your every command... - September 28, 2003 by Fred Taylor

Another good compact - This one's windowshade mode is decent, except you have to toggle the buttons on and off. It's a little bland, and the buttons are tiny, so if you like 3-D animated skins, or if you don't see very well and like big buttons, stay away from this one lol. It's really good otherwise. - September 20, 2003 by Dante _

Yes - The first skin iv'e used for more than a day, so simple with everything you need right there. This is all I am going to use. - September 17, 2003 by Greg B

Sexiest Skin Out There - This skin rocks so much, I made an account just to give a review. It's so small and sleek and sexy it blows my mind. Its got all the buttons, all the displays and well . . . everything, and its tiny. SO HOT! Most of the people giving it poor ratings are requesting functions that it already offers. People complain its too small, want scale option. . . there is one! This skin is so small I have it stitting on top of my screen 1/2 transparent so it dosen't get in the way AT ALL! It's truly incredible. So the color schemes are a bit limited there are some nice unoffensive ones. I almost forgot to mention the uber windowshade mode. It made me drool. I can't wait until my playlist is tweaked enough to not have to worry about it and have it constantly in windowshade. I want APILL to have my love child. - August 1, 2003 by Evan Giller

Great skin!!!! - This is the best wa3 skin I have seen! It is a nice small skin and even smaller and better in winshade mode. It is the perfect skin. One suggestion though, some new colour schemes would make it complete. Excellent job!!! - July 22, 2003 by Tyler Liu

::squuee:: - It's tha best! Easy to understand, compact, and cute! ::mutters:: pills, pills, pills...::twitch:: - July 9, 2003 by Katie Hess

f *ckin' awesome! - I LOVE IT!!! The best of the smallest. Excellent positioning of buttons/functions -- it made use of every pixels. I love how Scale and Opacity function was still made available. I wish i could give this skin more than 5 stars. - July 7, 2003 by Geek God

absobloodylutely perfect! - PERFECT! Exactly what I've been looking for! None of the huge ass windows that take up the whole workspace. Goodstuff Brian! - July 3, 2003 by Darien Leyson

yep - nifty - June 20, 2003 by jenna strausbaugh

KICK ASS!!! - This skin really whips the llama's ass! It starts out small, and it can get smaller! Also, for all the stupid ppl who say that "A scale function would be nice," look in the top left corner of the main window. That plus sign that you see, thats for scale and opacity. BAM! - June 12, 2003 by courtney white

not bad at all - very small, but very functional. i'd like to see more variety of colors, but the ones you have are nice. i'd also be interested to see a slightly more 3-d version, with a little more punch. - June 6, 2003 by Ally Katt

MORE STARS NEEDED!!! ********** - this is a righteous skin! it is just so small...I forget it is on my screen sometimes! thats a good thing! The buttons are still very visable too! That doesn't happen to often! - May 10, 2003 by Amy Slichter

Great! - Small, compact, nice color scheme. Small without being too small (from 1024x768 to 1600x1200 with 15 - 21" monitors, but can of course vary on your monitor/resolution). If you like small skins, look no further. - April 29, 2003 by Morten Torstensen

Ahh...the stars... - Say what you gotta say here, but please remain civilized... Now, the skin is absoloutley superb, but (yeah, theres always a BUT) it might get on your eyes so a scale tool would be useful. when i'm online for 10 hours, then it tends to be tireing. But that doesn't bother me, I would give it seven stars if I could, but then again I can't (for some of the dummys, who are trying to pull down the rate by giving 0 stars I warmly recommend to go in a corner and die). And again an exellent skin. - April 27, 2003 by David Tiks

I lost it! - Just what I like but only too small. A scale tool next time would be good. Clear useable GUI though. - April 21, 2003 by Dave Jordan

ehn.... - It's small, but it isn't too slim... Horrible color schemes... - April 16, 2003 by Elliot Vos

one of the greatest - This is what a skin should be...easy on the eyes, packs everything you need into a small package. download it now. - March 26, 2003 by Marshall Abbott

My Fav. - I've skipped over this one several times cause I thought it looked too simple. But when I finally downloaded it I realized how much this skin kicks ass! I love this damn thing and it's definitely my fav. so far! - February 21, 2003 by Slain Soul

Best and Better - This shin is the ONE. It merges usability and sizability. I use Winamp, mainly, as music player in background. So it's size is the more suitable. GREAT SKIN!!!! Expecting new version soon! - February 13, 2003 by Nuno Soares

What? - What the fuck is this? Finally one fuckin skin that is simple. All these dickheads are making all this high graphicz shit and this thing that looks like it iz made in MS Paint kickz all their asses. ROCK ON APILL - February 12, 2003 by DJ K@0$

its what ive been waiting for... - Small, un complex, nice colour, gives me everything there, looks sweet, no fiddling with sliders or guessing what buttons are like! We need more skins like this! - February 7, 2003 by Andrew Gamble

5 STARS - Very good! But if you get any smaller I will start taking away stars! Keep up the good work. ~ Just a Chic~ - February 6, 2003 by Sara Campos

Awesome! - This is the absolutely best. With the Winshade for this skin, it is literally the smallest usable skin I've ever seen and can always stay on top in Windows for easy, constant access. Now, if you could just give us some different color schemes...! - December 30, 2002 by Derek CB

way too tiny - when i changed my res from 1600*1200 to 800*600 i could actually see how cool this skin looks. thats the problem, for those of us who like high res, its too damn small. - December 17, 2002 by ChibiCthulhu -

perfect skin - for me, this is perfect. my desktop has a blue color and so does my xp toolbar. Its nice and little too - it stays outta the way. The buttons are a bit small but hey there supposed to be. I can always have this skin on top no prob. check this one out - November 30, 2002 by cletus powers

Superb - This is it. For me, with a very busy desktop this is the best ever. It takes no space at all, but yet it is very clear and easy to work with. A+! - November 19, 2002 by David Karlsson

Cute! - Nice if u wanna keep it on top! - November 13, 2002 by Andre Harry

Ive seen WAY better - ... Garbage - November 11, 2002 by Maxwell Louis

swwweeettt - swwwweeeeetttttttt looking skin! no complaints here. hey brian, how 'bout more color themes for Apill 2? keep up the good work! - November 4, 2002 by kenny jelly

sooooooooo tiny - It's so small...yet highly detailed! Great Job! And I actually lost it on my desktop once ^_^; Turns out it was hiding behind Winamp1.8 (which I was running at the same time). It's so kewl cuz of its size! and it's features (diff. colors)! I like the "yelp" theme best! It's the undisputed King of the "Compact" skin section! - November 4, 2002 by Karl Troutman

It's so simple, it's useful - All these other skins out there are big and bulky, you have to minimize them or they get in the way. This one is perfect for me. I set it to stay on top and i just put it in the bottom corner. Best skin I've found yet. Five stars easy - October 31, 2002 by Ty Spilker

Cool Man - I downloaded this sin at the start of Winamp3 and its still the only one I use. It's the only good one I've found with a playlist. Good job dude. - October 24, 2002 by Joel Hansen

OMG - I love Apill so much. I will probably use it for a looong time. Compact, yet very functional. A beautiful skin. Easily the best compact skin for WA3 yet. - October 23, 2002 by MaNiK bOy

The best WA3 skin YET. - I've got a lot of skins for winamp 3 so far, but this one is by far the best. it runs smoothly, it's compact enough that I can put it anywhere without it really being in the way, and it's stylish enough that even though I don't necessarily see it a lot, I won't feel embarassed using it. It doesn't interfere with anything! If I had one bit of criticism, though, it would be that for people that have poor eyesight, this isn't a good choice, because it could presumably be hard to read. But for me? I give it five stars solid. - October 18, 2002 by Khaleoud Marceau

Consular rep - Like it, like it, like it. Blue, clear estetique, compact and simple. After all . . . the simple things in life are often the best . - October 16, 2002 by Yann Audbert

awesome... - ...but needs more color schemes. Maybe a red or green one perhaps? Great work nonetheless! - October 15, 2002 by C. L. Nolen

Llamalicious! - I've been trying to find a NICE skin, but this has got to be one of the best I've seen. It's a small download and it has a nice rounded look. Opacity settings, windows shade mode, and a nice array of features allow easy navigation around the player. With the windows shade mode on and opacity to 50-30%, you don't even remember it's there. It rocks! - October 14, 2002 by Sal Sar

Best skin - This skin is the only one I have found that I would use to replace the default. Very intuitive and complete, and great for leaving on top. - October 14, 2002 by Jeff H

needs better colours - This is the best skin I've found. It's works a lot better than other skins coz it's simple and compact. The only bad thing about it is the boring colours - the themes need more variation. Good work anyway, this skin is recommended for everyone. - October 13, 2002 by Liam Cooke

HARRIS gave it - It's a very good design.It looks cool. - October 13, 2002 by harris wong

How can you NOT love this?!? - The best one...EVER... small...resizeable... and you can make it half transparent and put it on top of the screen... Now even better when it's easier to tell the differens between repeat and normal etc.. Simply a GREAT job!!! - October 13, 2002 by David Lysberg

Very useful - Good skin, very useful. It gives you all the information and controls of wa while kindly staying out of the way. The graphics could have a little of improvement . . . ;) - October 12, 2002 by Oscar Alvarez

PRIMO mini-player - Gotta say, this is the best I've seen as far as mini-players go. Musicmatch eat your heart out!!! - October 11, 2002 by Kari Olson

not the greatest - i'v seen better - October 11, 2002 by chris mcneese

cool one - i take this one because is elegant and simple and the colour is cool - October 8, 2002 by stoizist Bernhard

wow - as a minimalist, i find this piece to be amazing. a true work of art in itself. it is minimal, displaying only essentialities of winamp3. fantastic. and of all the colours, the ultimate in subliminality; blue. - October 8, 2002 by jonny raine

poo, - the buttons are too small even on my 19inch montior - October 8, 2002 by Hideo Kojima

More Contrast PLEASE - The most functional/useful skin by far. Requires minimal real estate, and you can leave it "on top" without interfering with your productivity. My only complaint is that the colors need to be more contrasted. The text can be a little hard to read sometimes at higher resolutions. Also additional colors would be nice! - October 8, 2002 by est twonine

music player suits my desktop - simple and fresh looking. suit neatly on my desktop 800 x 600 resolution. pls keep up the work and expect new version of more improved and polished features :) - October 7, 2002 by KL HongKong

NICE! - ok, i love it! .. may be more themes next time but still is just perfect - October 6, 2002 by muriel dada

great - love it - October 6, 2002 by Chris Nathan

ain't too great - but nice none-the-less - October 6, 2002 by Brian Lunardini

Good - Is well but is too small. The style, the colors are the best except of the size - October 5, 2002 by Jorge Beher

extremely convenient... - I use this skin whenever i'm doing other things on the computer besides listening to music, which is a lot of the time. Good job... - October 5, 2002 by Chickens AreCool

Perfect... - The epitome of "the bare necessities." Small, sits right in the top corner like a good skin should, and all the essentials (EQ, Thinger) are the same shape, so they do their thang right too =) - October 4, 2002 by Rob P.

very good - That skin is best of all. I very like his eq and main window. That skin is best, Very gooooooooooood !!!!!!!! - October 4, 2002 by Michal Charydczak

Epitome of Simplicity - Honestly, I have jumped between dozens of skins based on design, size, functionality, etc. And if you're like me, you tend to resort back to a favorite; something simple, that you're used to. This skin became my new favorite after I saw its tiny design and very efficient layout. All the buttons are in plain sight--no search around. And top that off with a 2000/XP opacity option? Now I can have a player that looks like it's stretched on a thin blue film. And we all love blue film, am I right? Blue film = 5 stars. - October 2, 2002 by Dan Bedell

Woohoo! - I've always loved the minimalist skins and this is as wickle as it'll get. Cool. - September 30, 2002 by Huy Nguyen

Elegant and Functional - This is exactly what I was looking for when I hunted through the skins today. I can put this skin on "window shade" mode and tuck it neatly into the status bar of any program. It stays out of the way, and yet is fully functional. The buttons are clear, the text crisp, and everything is sized for optimum useability. - September 29, 2002 by Abby Lee

Nice & Simple - This is the skin I'm using now. I like it because it's simple and clean-looking. You don't have to search for the button you're looking for because of crappy design. I like. - September 24, 2002 by Clint H

Nice and useful! - Finally I found a skin that is nice to see and very useful. I've been looking for a skin that I could always have on top of other application without interfering much with my work. This is it! :) - September 21, 2002 by B. Covel

Finally! - This skin is perfect. I finally found a skin that fits a normal working environment. I couldn't find space for most skins even on my two monitors. - September 20, 2002 by Boris Zamoruev

Great skin for "men@work" - Really small, but very usable. (Screenshot shows the real size) Don't forget to check enhanced contrast with Color Themes. Windowshade is even smaller! This is the skin I've spent 1 hour looking for! - September 19, 2002 by Radoslaw Szkodzinski

yup - how do i use these skins??? - September 19, 2002 by mad child

Some People actually do work on thier computers! - And this skin Kicks ass for them. I've got a ton of other things to do, I don't need some graphic artists idea of a "really kewl" skin taking up valuable desktop space. I've got to complie, test, and run on this machine. This way, I can load some music and groove on. Bryan, myself and developers everywhere thank you. If you ever need a Kidney, man, just ask. - September 19, 2002 by Adam Seidl

Yes, I've found my skin !!! - With a scale of 125, it's perfect to listen Techno-House -- Besides, it works perfectly Good job Brian !! - September 18, 2002 by J JB

hmmmm - Ill admit works incredibly well in the slimed down mode and does its job, but surely a but too bland for most? I know if i wanted eye candy id go for something like BOOM, but something to please the eye would improve the score dramatically. - September 15, 2002 by Chris Ballard

Apill Rocks! - This is the kEwLest skin for WinAmp! Very compact, but still EXTREMELY intuitive and usable! Even the Playlist Editor matches the theme -- something many skin-makers don't take the time to do! So, I'm impressed! *swoon* This skin is awesome -- GET IT! - September 13, 2002 by Tiffany Jordan

For me it's the best one !!! - Hello Brian, Small, with everything and easy to use ! I like it best and it suits when boss is getting near the desktop ;) I love it ! Thank you for letting me listen to Avril Lavigne in every situation. A MUST download. (Giulio - Italy) - September 11, 2002 by Simon B

In this case smaller is better! - I needed something small... This was perfect thanx! - September 11, 2002 by Ci Pan

sleek, sleeker, sleekest! - hey hey, i very much so like this skin because it not only has a full-size AND windowshade mode, both are small, well-proportioned and efficiently laid out so that, in either mode, everything is *RIGHT THERE* next to the cursor. it's easy, concise, and it looks good too! although i wish the typeface was a tad bit larger (for those of us with laptops and high resolution or high res on small moitors). this is a common problem for most skins, i've found. it'lll prolly turn out that someone will write back telling me to stop bitching and get a larger monitor... -a - September 6, 2002 by nyc boi

Great Job - Very great winamp skin, i love its simplicity and it works so well with my theme, ForeverBlue Final it is the best, Good job man, but I would like to see it in more of a midnight blue, email me if you ever do [email protected] alrite man keep up good work. - September 6, 2002 by Justin Choudhury

Best Skin, Ever.... - I don't use any other skin but this. It keeps itself out of my way and it has everything you need in the small package. even at my resolution (1600x1200) it's not a problem. Awesome skin. - September 6, 2002 by Brian Goley

simple but good - this is very simple but at least its useful..i will use it for sure and i added it to my collection already - September 4, 2002 by Puma Uh

Great skin! - I wish more people would make skins like this one. I just want something small, functional, easy to read, and with all of the pertinent options clearly marked. I don't care to see some big, garish thing on my screen. I just want it to play tunes and stay out of the way. This does it nicely. - September 3, 2002 by Mark Seybold

Perfect - Dear Mr. Brian Bryce I tried sending you a e-mail but it did not go through so I thought I would just copy and paste the message here. I am a fan of your skins. They are pretty much perfect. I have been to your website and was disappointing in hearing that TGA may be gone. Please if you can, please bring TGA back. It is a terrific skin. Your Apill and TGA skins are the best skins I have seen. It would be a shame to lose one of the best skins created for Winamp 3. Thank you. Sincerely, Damian M. P.S. Great photography. Very beautiful pictures - September 3, 2002 by Damian M.

Well you have done it! - This Skin is one of the best skins. It's small, all the windows are skinned, and it's completely useable for it's size, and there are different colour choices. I like this one a lot. 5 stars are well deserved. - September 1, 2002 by Josh M

Fine look, Great Skin - Apill ist one of the best skins i ever used. Nothing more, nothing less - August 29, 2002 by Julian Budke

Excellent! - This skin is excellent! It's a bit small, but you get everything. - August 28, 2002 by Michael Guthrie

best up to now - this is the best skin up to now... size doesn't matter :) when it's in windowshade mode it's very easy, it doesn't distract me from what i'm doing. the practical bit is the "drawer" :) very very nice... it's a pitty that we can't change the colours... a very light yellow or orange would be neat. - August 28, 2002 by AlmightY g0d

One of the best! - One of the best simple, elegant and really practical compact skins. - August 27, 2002 by Dobrin Banov

Most Practical Skin Ever - Honestly, the thing is small, but that's the point. If there is another skin which you can keep on top the whole time and doesn't get in the way of anything, I haven't seen it. Honestly, this is the most practical skin I've seen yet. Thanks! - August 26, 2002 by Mike Davies

Nice Collors - This is realy a great skin for those who still like the winamp 2 style because you can pretend almost that you are still useing the old one. Its nice because you can change collors i personaly am useing "Yelp" so its a good skin. - August 26, 2002 by Jordan Brodley

no way - i don't like it at all it looks nasty - August 25, 2002 by Matthew Laclair

subtle yet beautiful - it doesn't take up a whole lot of space compared to most skins, it's easy to use... and i really like the design! awesome job. - August 23, 2002 by purple platypus

3.5 stars - Nice skin, ive downloaded it, but its a bit too small, coz the shape is bad for a tiny skin - where do u click 2 move the skin? (of course i no i'm being sarcastic and tactful) and itz damn hard 2 change the skin, its too small. nice skin tho'. i dont like the blue but i think the skins original and lovely - i would download it if i were u - light, nice and all in 1. - August 23, 2002 by heart attack

SKIN - COOL SKIN TINY TINY tiny hard to see but i have a Magnifying glass so cool skin :) - August 23, 2002 by danny andrews

Nice, small skin - I read it often: this skin is too small, I cant read the songtitles, etc, etc... Have you ever thought of right-clicking and choosing Options / Double size? Anyway, this sure is a complete skin and the controls are intuitive. - August 22, 2002 by Assur Ruijs

A little TOO small. - Not exactly bad, but it doesn't really have any aesthetic value. Everything's just stuck together as tight as possible and it's hard to find anything. - August 22, 2002 by Aquatakat the Kat

Incredible Skin! - Wow, this is the greatest skin I have seen, for any winamp! It's very small, so i can leave it on top, but it still has ALL the features and manages to stay very clean and not cluttered! Its totally perfect! Everyone must download it! Even the compact mode is wonderful! It even comes w/ a few alternate color schemes! The only recomendation I have for the maker is that you should add a silver/black color scheme... You're the best Brian! - August 21, 2002 by Reed Kerr

Awesome - This skin continues to blow my mind with the way it works and looks. Great job. Hope to see more skinz from you. - August 21, 2002 by Jesse Wilson

Agrees with Brian Bryce - This is just what I have been looking for. Why should I download those other beautiful, elegant skins that I won't see 95% of the time? In Winamp2 I used the windowshade mode most of the time, and this skin is what I wanted to see in Winamp3! Great job Brian! I can't wait until the next release for more Color Themes! - August 20, 2002 by Jason Green

Great concept, but... - ..poor execution. This skin is far too small for practical use; even at 800 x 600 it is difficult to read. Any attempt to enlarge the skin makes it too blurry to read. - August 20, 2002 by j w

wickEd - The best skin I've ever seen and possibly the best skin I will ever see ... nice to finally have a small but full-featured skin ... plus i like the blue :) - August 19, 2002 by Steve Loker

The one skin!!! - This is the one skin!!! I din't actually know if that thing of opacity is for all Winamp skins... but this one looks like perfect for this. Simple, functional and the best skin for that ones that works on PC but likes to have the music in hands whit easy... Falow galera!!!! - August 19, 2002 by Nemsei Soul

My #1 skin - I have been using this skin since its predecessor Bluple showed up in the forums. From that point on I've never used any other skin and probably will not do so in the future. If you want a small but full-featured skin then this is THE skin for you! - August 19, 2002 by JOP Creations

Perfect - The best skin to keep on top of your screen, plus I use that compact button to make other skins more compact! o.0 great! I never knew pills could play music! - August 19, 2002 by Dominic Grenier

Sweeet - i'v been looking for a skin to just put up top my screen, this works perfectly for me, thanks a lot. - August 19, 2002 by crfx crfx

Thats a smart one! - Small and exactly what i missed. But two things: a) the font in the AVS is black... and its hard to read it. b) the antialias border doesnt look that good on a bright background. - August 18, 2002 by Snarz Knox

Whoho! - This is almost what i hoped for when winamp got freeform skinning!? It is almost as minimalistic as I want it. Thank you! - August 18, 2002 by Sam Persson

The best one yet - Gotta love the versatility of winamp3 for being able to have skins of any size or shape, This skin is exactly what winamp has needed for years! - August 18, 2002 by RJ Connell

Finally! - I finally found what I was looking for, this is the best skin i ever seen, of all skins including all the Winamp2 skins. This is "the skin" for Winamp3. (and for me) - August 18, 2002 by NiNiP Aktas

5 stars from me! - Tiny footprint while preserving all of Winamps functionality. I would recommend this skin to anyone who likes to take full advantage of their limited desktop space. - August 18, 2002 by Jason R.

Elegant - for those who think that simple is elegant got it all and didnt take too much space, a very good design Bryan. Keep it going. - August 17, 2002 by Ernst Werner

Very Very Nice... - This skin is great especially after fiddling around with some stuff. To all you people who can't see anything, click the + sign in the upper-lefthand corner and change the scale..... - August 16, 2002 by Tristan Gordon

Fantastic, but... - Little things would go a long way. 1) Easier to read song titles 2) Navigation buttons in Windowshade mode as well as song title (since ya only get one or the other - thanks for pointing this out, Brian. ;) ) 3) For the shuffle toggle, read "123" when it's off and "312" when on. :D 4) For the Repeat toggle, have the half (that looks like a sideways U) when off and the current loop when on. 5) In windowshade mode, the track time remaining seems to take up more space than it needs for the seconds area. 6) More colors It's great for what it's intended, but the little touches would really polish it up. - August 16, 2002 by Ben Wipperman

Perfectly sized for the desktop! - At last I've found the ultimate skin satisfying my desire for usability as well as anonymity - it's pretty darn usefull but doesn't cause any distraction - I like it a lot :-D - August 15, 2002 by Tommy Ipsen

Nice lovely with Transparency... But SMALLLLLLLLLLLL - This is a great skin... But you can't get to read what your playing :) It's great anyway - August 15, 2002 by Nono Le robot

Sweet - This is a really chic skin. Lite but beautiful. I like the blue :) - August 15, 2002 by Kai Anja Zajaczkowski

Best skin so far... - Very nice setup. More color options would be nice. I had to zoom in on the main window to get it to be readable. Love this skin. - August 15, 2002 by David Cameron

Triple Yahtzee! ! ! - i love this skin! finally a reason not to hide winamp. - August 15, 2002 by brett ccccc

Hey?!?! - hey this is a really sweet skin. but i have a problem. it is really freakin small! i can hardly see the thing in my 1162x864 resolution! when i doublesize it though it looks grainy and not good. uh maybe next time make it a bit bigger. also a black color scheme with red text would make it perfect. hell yes! - August 15, 2002 by Alan Bowley

Michael's Comment - Yea it's kinda cheap, but is much more easier to use than the other new skins - August 14, 2002 by MIchael Zarate

Small but perfectly formed - I like it a lot. It does everything I need, and has a tiny footprint. Good work fella! - August 14, 2002 by Mark Pud

about time - it's about time we got a skin like this. it's perfect for what i want out of winamp. i like the new wa3, but i don't need a massive skin. this one is perfect. - August 14, 2002 by jon hickman

really nice job - Although lacking in the gfx department, I can't help but give it 5's just too well designed with regard to useability. Everything is where you need it, and it doesn't get it the way. I like being able to choose EQ presets on-the-fly, without having to hit "load". Only 2 color themes, but both are nice and easy on the eyes. Although in the Graple theme, text highlighting is still blue (pref, PL, ML) which looks odd. It's a little hard to tell when the buttons are depressed (shuff, xfade, rep)...maybe change the colors on that. It would be really cool if the windowshade automatigically was positioned in the middle of the active window's titlebar...similar to how the Zygote skin works (but have this as a user option). Hopefully the author will do a little more tweaking, then this skin will be perfection :) - August 14, 2002 by Cheeky Boy

Scale & Opacity - Nice and Clean! I've always hated big and/or cluncky skins. Another bonus is the utilization of scaling and opacity. Too small, some say? Just scale it up to your desired size! Check out different opacities too if you like your desktop. I would like to see more colors though! Note: Those features above are available from the little + symbol in the top left corner of each window. - August 14, 2002 by Bruce Skarin

One of the best! - Just what I was looking for. There's some really cool looking skins but I like a small one that stays out of the way but is still useable, easy to read and all functions are accessible. Nice job on this one. - August 14, 2002 by Brad Gardner

overall pretty good - pretty question unrelated question though...why did it tae winamp so long to go free form? i dont remember the exact name (Sonic mp3 maybe???) had free form like 3 years ago..what's the deal? - August 14, 2002 by bob noneof
