Windows Phone emulator skin switcher [Developers]

WP Emulator Skin Switcher

Geert van der Cruijsen, a Windows Phone development enthusiast, has created a skin switcher which can be used to easily alternate between community created themes when developing apps for the platform. The software is beta, so all feedback is welcome (comments on his blog or via Twitter). The download package includes not only the skin switcher, but the following skins too:

  • Default skin (Microsoft)
  • Nokia Lumia 710 Black Blue (Geert van der Cruijsen)
  • Nokia Lumia 710 Black Yellow
  • Nokia Lumia 710 White Black
  • Nokia Lumia 710 White Blue
  • Nokia Lumia 710 White Pink (Georg Kalus)
  • Nokia Lumia 800 Black (Pedro Lamas)
  • Nokia Lumia 800 Blue (Georg Kalus)
  • Nokia Lumia 800 Pink (Geert van der Cruijsen)

Head on over to Geert's blog to download his tool, and hopefully your time spent developing feature-rich apps will be more aesthetically pleasing.

Windows Phone emulator skin switcher [Developers]

I tried this, but after applying any of the themes, the back button stopped working!  Then when I tried to apply the origina default theme, it gives an error about one of the BMP missing and crashes the emulator.
Use with caution!

@WPManiac
back button not working was only with the lumia 800 black skin. i've fixed that and a new version is already online at the same link.
if you have any other problems with the application please let me know. on twitter: @geertvdc or leave a comment on my blog
