Search through the "Thank You/Announcements" forum here, and you should see some work from other BT developers that should give you some ideas.

@sandeep made a very attractive application on android. He mainly uses backgrounds and made them look like they fitted in well. The link: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wordboxtwenty20worldcup2012

Yeh, i have been trying to replicate the quality of his app background. I think the best way to go about it is to use photoshop and make sure that your try to keep one colour scheme. if you know what i mean?

@Andromodd- Hello! Making a good looking app is not so difficult. All you need is a lot of imagination and hard work. It took me about a month to create this app from imagining to the release. Actually i prepared two different apps one with 1.5 and the other with 2.0. made a lot of changes to both apps and finally decided to use the present version 2.0. What @jawdoss said is correct, i have made use of background image on each screen and also have used html docs screens and in some screens also the custom url screens in my apps. Other than that i have used nothing else. In short the app is entirely made out of the box using buzztouch.

The aforementioned app developer has used a tabbed layout and the main screen has a simple menu list. He has not used any theme in fact he has made use of background image in header section of the app. That can be done in bt.

You can find all my apps in the following link. http://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=WordBox+Apps#?t=W251bGwsbnVsbCxudWxsLDEsImNvbS5tb3RvcnZlaGljbGVsYXdpbmluZGlhIl0. Setting up a html doc screen or custom url screen is not as much difficult as you think. It can be done using the buzztouch itself. However in case of html docs you have to create your own html docs and in case of custom url you just need to point a particular website link in the bt.

There is an option on bt control panel about setting background image in any view. In case of simple menu go to Screen Background Image and put the image file name you have created. This section also has the option to set that image on various areas of the screen like top, bottom, middle, etc.

@Andromodd I have not tried to implement the scriong sdk into any of my app yet. I saw the video in a hurry and dont know exactly how to fix the error you are getting. It would make sense if you post the above question in the aforementioned thread. Some one out there might help you in getting the error fixed.

First you need to get yourself registered on scringo website scringo.com. You will be asked to fill up some info about your email and all that stuff. You will then get your scringo id.

He has used a splashscreen and then a tabbed layout. The first tab has a menu list screen which also hosts the scringo. The second tab has either html doc or might be a custom url to some chat service. The third and fourth tabs are custom url to his blog and forum. Where as in the last tab he has made some custom changes with coding. Well its out of my knowledge how he has made that happen to rate that app on google store. I had seen that app earlier and it was not so cool but the developer has made a lot of changes to make it a cool app. Amazing hard work.

According to what i know this cannot be achieved in version 2.0. There is an option to set header image, header image layout and header image tap (which directs the users to other desired screen when they tap on the header image). If you want to set header image like that dev then 1.5 is an option for you not 2.0.

I am not sure but i think he might have used a menu button screen or he might have added some custom code. Check using the menu button screen with a very wide image for icon something like 20 (height) x 160 (width) and tell me how it works.

No need to upload images on server just put the desired image in the project file itself. Put image files in assets---> BT_images folder of project files.
