After its early preview in our TSU7000 review
, Iím pleased to release the final version of my color ProntoPro NG layout today. This completely original and full-screen interface is based on my black-and-white layout for the Pronto NG TSU3000, but is not merely a colorization of that design. In this version Iíve concentrated on making the layout quicker to navigate (no more home page), easier for others to modify, and far more versatile.
Sporting 6 zones with over 33 full device configurations complete with separate code pages, this setup makes liberal use of hard buttons, a quick main task bar to the left and a sub-task/device bar on top. Also new is a status line with the time, date, battery level and device name, two buttons that can be used for page history or device switching, plus better page numbering.
Additional features include Rogers digital cable and off-air HDTV television surfing guides for the Toronto, Canada area, an interactive lighting device, hard button help page and my Galaxy NG puzzle game.
Included as hidden devices in this file is a gallery which includes over 1000 original graphics that can be used to completely customize this layout to your system and taste. For example, there are 312 different buttons (52 shapes each in 6 colors), over 80 large device icons, over 90 small device icons, 174 Canadian and US television icons, a home page for those who canít live without, plus much more. All elements have been created as PNG files with full alpha channel transparency support, so theyíll work over any type of background.
Due to this fileís size and complexity you absolutely must use ProntoProEdit NG v2.0 or newer.
