Which application would you prefer, khroma 2.0 or colorize 1.2?

I use colorize for now. It does the job pretty well.

Colorize meets my needs. I have not tried Khroma but took a peak on PalmGear at the screenshot. Looked a bit more complicated than Colorize, and as I said, Colorize does what I want. I don't go for wild color schemes which is what the screenshot seemed to be promoting.

Does anyone know if Palm Theme Pro is going to get updated for OS 5?
That program is superior to all of the others! (By Far!!!)

I don't believe Palm Theme Pro works for Hires Clies. I tried it on my NR70 and it crashed. The aplications icon doesn't even show up to launch. The da is what crashed my unit. I launched the da through da launcher. The last update was around September of 2001. Colorize and Khroma seem much more simpler and stabler. So, Theme Pro isn't superior by far, at least when it comes to Hires devices.

But I like the functionality of Palm Theme Pro much more! Think about this: A XP skinable UI for your Clie (or Mac). Now add a Mac OS X/XP skin to any launcher, a Mac OS X/XP to the virtual grafiti and then people will think you have a portable version of that OS! :) :)

I do agree. It does sound nice. ;)

The new quick changer or whatever it's called makes Khroma just as easy to use as Colorizer. I personally don't feel like editing my own themes, and have used that as a "decision" factor. I think I like the themes in Colorizer more than those in Khroma. Personally, I've found that themes that don't use a white background annoy me: various icons have a white background and, if the system background is a different color, they look odd. I don't know if I'm explaining this so anyone can understand. ;)
Oh, one thing that annoyed me about Khroma is that it doesn't seem possible to use the page up/down buttons to quickly move through the list. Rather, you're forced to use the scroll bar.
In any event, they're both free so you can't really go wrong.

Yeah, I think I'm sticking with colorize mainly because of size (27k compared to 80 something k in khroma), nicer interface (in my opinion), more simpler (looking at least), and like hherbzilla I like the default color schemes better. :)
