On the whole, the new skin is lovely.
1 minor niggle
The un-selected font is too light to read from a distance
The larger, darker yellow font of selected items is great!
3 icky show-stopping niggles
1 - the skin must be re-enabled via the Add-Ons screen upon each reboot
2 - Only the ICON view is available… kiddos and the elderly require the Big Icon / Grid view (see New Kiddos vs Old Kiddos)
3 - Custom menu shortcuts now persist from a backup recover… However rather than being persistent and view-able to the right (see Old Videos) you MUST press left to see the shortcuts (see New Videos) which are otherwise hidden from view.
Old Video Menu, ‘Videos’ highlighted/selected
New Video Menu, had to press left from ‘Videos’ before sub-menus became visible. Not intuitive to navigate
Lovely Grid view on the original OSMC skin that shows a bunch of movies / page graphically
Sad panda that only a list view exists on the new skin… little girls disconcerted
