Skins do not show up on home screen

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a huge amount of free Skins for Poweramp Version2 from the Playstore,  but I cannot get Poweramp to show up with any of them on my home screen, just inside the app itself and I'm losing it. Please help. Thank you

Thanks for responding and, yes, I am certain I have Poweramp version 2 as I got rid of Version 3 from the Playstore and downloaded the apk for 2 I believe from this site.  And, it looks entirely different.

I just re-read your original message. Skins are designed to work in the main app, not sure how many (if any at all) will skin Widgets too, and that could also be ROM dependent anyway.

Oh, so as I understand it, you can get all these awesome looking skins, but are ONLY able to even see them within the app itself and not on screen? Well, two things. First, I belong to an app that allows you to customize your entire homescreen, etc. So, being able to see the cool skins, instead of the ultra boring crap that is all the choices that pop up when I try to apply Poweramp to my homescreen is absolutely key and the whole point of even having it imo. Second, I KNOW someone who has made a couple of these themes I'm talking about with Poweramp showing the great skin on HIS screen, though he was unable to explain to me how he got it to do that. So, idk. Recently I accidentally updated to Version 3 again,  so I uninstalled it and reinstalled 2. But if I don't find a way to apply the skins on the widget instead of the plain crap, I'm getting rid of it. Thanks for your response anyway. (Btw, the SOLE reason I installed Poweramp in the first place was because the main widget maker I normally use to customize things like my music apps is being discontinued and I saw the cool skins and thought it would make a great temporary replacement until I can learn how to use another one, which might take me some time)

If the PA interface allows widgets to be skinned, it would be up to individual skin authors as to whether they implemented that element. I must admit that I wasn't aware it was even technically possible, but you mention that some skins do support it, so I can only assume it must be feasible if the author wants to put in the extra work. Check with the skin authors anyway.
