A) Get the latest version here.

Q) How do I install?
A) Download the .RMSKIN file on the right and install!

Q) What resolutions does this work on?
A) The suite has been designed to be flexible to a minimum of 1366x768. It will look even better on larger screens.

There is a full FAQ included in the download.

Tips & Tricks
- Middle click the Google Search bar to open 'Search Now'.

- Double click the home button to open Task Manager.
- Double click the menu button to open 'Favorite Apps', a play on Android's Recent Apps.
- For the Currents and USA Today apps, move the mouse to the left edge of the screen to open the app's topics menu.

I'm having a very difficult time getting this to work on a multiple monitor system. some things like to show up on my monitor that is on the right side. That monitor is also in portrait mode. I would love to be able to change the skin to portrait mode and just use it on that monitor.

Sorry, I didn't make this with multiple monitors in mind. As far as I know no one's done full-screen skins or suites, and there's good reason. Rainmeter really isn't built for what I've done here with the Android suites.

If you're really up to the job, you may go ahead and attempt to modify the suite to fit portrait screens. It may be really tedious though.

When the next version of Android comes out, I may look into this myself. :)
