Skit Skit | Skit Premium The first big update for Skit, numbered 2.2, is here and the main change is the new “Apps usage” tool. I think some of you sometimes wondered how much time you spend in this or that application, how much Internet it consumes, and so on. This is where the new tool will help you. In addition, several interface improvements were made, namely: a new design of the “Themes” window and the “Jungle” theme was replaced with “Retro”.

Skit Earlier this year, there was a huge update for Skit - 2.0 “Odin”. It came out big and brought a lot of changes for users. But as it turned out a little later, these changes also introduced minor problems, namely performance problems and problems with people understanding of “.apks” files and “App Bundle” apps. These are the issues that I decided to focus on in update 2.1 “Frigg”. Performance I slightly reworked the mechanism for loading applications and saving their icons to the memory cache.

I have changed mostly everything, starting from general icons style, information screen’s style, and management (“Feedback”, “Settings” and other) screens.

Since I am a lone developer who prototypes, develops, and launches all applications completely by myself, sooner or later there had to come to a point when it was necessary to choose which applications to support further and which not. At the moment, I have created 4 applications - Castro, Skit, Graphie, and Rekado (I did not talk about this application too much because it is very specific). Some applications have already grown into the entity that I originally conceived them, and my other ideas cannot be implemented due to lack of time.
