View Full Version : Announcement: iSqueeze lightweight skin for iPhone & iPod touch

2008-09-10, 20:36
Hi all,
I've adapted my PSP skin (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=35993) to be more compatible with the vertical form factor of the iPhone and the iPod Touch. I liked the slickness of iPeng (really rich UI - nice work on that), but I found it to be a bit heavyweight for my liking. So I modified my PSP skin, and I'm really enjoying it on my iPod Touch.
I had to change a handful of files from the PSP skin, but the skins are 98% similar - just some minor differences to make it more iPhone/iPod friendly. Eventually I'd like to merge the two together to have a single skin that allows you to choose your device dynamically, but for now I'll post this skin, get some feedback, and see where this takes us.

For the newbies out there, all you need to do is unzip the attached file to in your squeezcenter/html directory (so you have a directory called ../squeezecenter/html/iSqueeze) and navigate to http://ip_of_server:9000/iSqueeze.

Looking forward to the feedback,

Shouldn't the directory be ../squeezecenter/server/html/iSqueeze ?

I wanted to see how it looked on my Dell Axim, but the images are all red Xs in Netfront and Pocket IE. So then I tried it on my PC browser. It looks fine in Firefox 3, but broken images in Google Chrome and IE7.

Cool. Looks pretty much like iPeng when I started :-)
Although that was with the Nokia skin and in landscape mode.
It's quite fast. How's your experience with the small controls? That way you've managed to add all three "play/add/next" buttons on all pages that I'm still trying to find a way to place in iPeng...
Like that.

I thought someone was already using "iSqueeze" for another project?

A couple of updates:

- my sincere apologies to Luke Redpath who has already started on a skin called iSqueeze - you had it first, so it's yours
- I spent some time tonight merging the PSP and (formerly) iSqueeze skin into a single skin called "Mobile". I've posted it here http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?p=339509#post339509 to drive traffic away from this thread so I don't distract from Luke's original iSqueeze efforts.
- I also cleaned up some of the PSP cruft in this version - the red X's that MeSue notices were hangovers from some PSP-specific optimizations. You shouldn't see them anymore in this version.

- Tim

No need to apologise, but I appreciate you using a different name - thanks.
