FAQ
Q) Help! I need to close a skin but it won't let me!
A) If you ever need to "escape" from a skin in an emergency, press Left Control + Right Click. This will bring up the context menu and you can kill the skin.

Q) Why is the download ~70 MB?
A) There are a lot of high resolution images included in the suite. The big ones are mainly weather pictures. The images alone total 65 MB. The rest is just .ini files.

Q) What exactly are the apps? Rainmeter doesn't have apps.
A) The apps are just full-screen Rainmeter skins. They look and act like their Android counterparts. What may be a small music player on another suite is a full-screen Google Play Music twin on this suite.

Q) What is Rainmeter?
A) From the website: "Rainmeter displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop."

Q) Where do I download it?
A) You need the latest version of Rainmeter! Download it at the official website.

Q) Are there any system requirements?
A) All you need is a Windows PC!

Q) Will this work on my laptop?
A) I strongly recommend 1366x768 as being the minimum resolution.

As I am new to deviantart I don't know much about licenses.It would be so nice of you if you tell me about license for skins.
ScoobSTi's avatar
Basically, for the license I chose, you can do anything you want to the suite as long as you give credit to the original, don't make money off of it (I don't), and share your work under the same terms. :)
NiketanG's avatar
okay, got it! thanks. I've uploaded WIP screenshots of suite .
NiketanG's avatar
I will soon upload WIP screenshots of it.

By the way I would like to let you know that I am currently working on an Android N skin for Rainmeter . I just wanted to seek you for permission to take your skin as base for my skin and support for my skin. Trust me it will be a fantastic skin as your is . And again your work is nice.
ScoobSTi's avatar
Yes, you may build off of it! All I ask is that you please don't use the "RainDroid" name and please give me credit. :) If I have the time I might work on my own Android N version as well! :D Good luck with your project! Looking forward to the WIP screenshots.
NiketanG's avatar
Off course ,I will give you credits and I am thinking a different name for it.But as Android N is not yet released and it's not named yet all I can do is wait and think.By the way,thanks for your support!

Hello, sorry for the late reply.

I do not have a ZIP file! The file you have to download from the page is a .RMSKIN file, not .ZIP. I don't know where you got the ZIP from. You should run the RMSKIN file to install.

no problem my friend 

i have install your skin But your skin can crash rainmeter a lot in windows 10 TH2

and please make a marshmallo skin please
ScoobSTi's avatar
I am sorry to hear that. Do you know when/where the skin crashes?
Yashlaptop's avatar
When i open it and press any button like home or back and open settings then it will be crash
ScoobSTi's avatar
That is weird. Maybe you can try to reinstall the skin? First, go to Documents > Rainmeter > Skins > Android Lollipop > resources. Make a backup of "Variables.inc" so you will not lose your settings. Then go up to the Skins folder and delete "Android Lollipop" folder. Now, download and install the skin again. Hopefully this works for you.
Yashlaptop's avatar
My friend i tried this 5 times before you say i allready used it.

Now i am not try it if you make another marshmallo skin so i will try it but you skin is lookin good but not work well
for me 

ThankYou

Have a nice day and if you made new marshmallo skin so please inform me also.
how can i install this in my rainmeter plz...
ScoobSTi's avatar
Hi, please update your Rainmeter to the latest version first. After that, on the top right corner of this page, there is a download button. Download the file (~70 MB) and run it. Install the RainDroid skin and Rainmeter will restart. When Rainmeter finishes restarting, you will see a setup screen for RainDroid. Now you can change the settings before you run the skin. Hope you enjoy!
