Some folks complained that my default UI skin is too dark, it is hard to read photo descriptions in Flickr Flip Book, and the whole charcoal look and feel used in most Adobe Flex and AIR apps is wearing off.

It’s a little plain, but easy on the eyes. Maybe I’ll add some album page background pattern options in v.2 to make it stand out and more colorful.
In the meantime, I am planning to do a short how-to with some sample code next, to show how easy it is to add support for multiple UI skins to Flex apps with a well-designed UI and cleanly separated view/layout code and styles.
