 +====== A short guide on how to create skins ======
 +
 +You can use custom weather icons by placing 64x64 pixel icons in png format in a zip file that you place at:
 +/​sdcard/​snowstorm
 +
 +The zip file with a skin i must be named according to "​*-skin.zip",​ e.g. twcnew-skin.zip
 +
 +Each icon should be named w<​symbolNumber>​_<​period>​.png.
 +
 +Valid symbol numbers and periods can be found at [[http://​www.yr.no/​informasjon/​1.1940495|Yr]].
 +
 +
 +The periods are, 0 = night, 1 = morning, 2 = day, 3 = evening
 +
 +
 +
 +E.g w4_1.png would be the morning image for a cloudy day.
 +
 +You can also place an info text with credits etc in info.txt inside the zip. The text file should be saved in UTF-8 without BOM character in the beginning.
 +
 +
 +
 +A sample skin can be downloaded from the downloads page.
 +
 +
 +
 +Note that you also can add a custom background to the zip. The background should be 322 x 100 pixels, but remember that the UI guidelines for Android says that you should have a smaller display area.
 +
 +You can read more about Android UI guidelines here:
