New Initiate Skin Now Out

Hobbyist Software has released a new Initiate skin. Please note that you'll need the latest Initiate Beta to view this properly.

From Rob at Hobbyist Software:

It's called Samurai and it's by Rich Kendrick. It keeps the buttons to the minimum with only favourites, update and autolaunch (you can still access all features through tap&hold, or via the menu). I think it is really stylish!
Plus, Rich submitted a great set of Japanese-themed backgrounds which are now up at the Initiate background page.
It turns out that my notification system for newly arrived backgrounds was broken, so I just found a backlog of great images which are now approved. Even if you don't use Initiate - go and check out this brilliant free selection of backgrounds they'll work with any app that lets you select a jpeg for a background!

That Samurai skin looks really cool! And check out these cool backgrounds that Rich made.

Check out the latest versions of Initiate here.
