in 2.1.14 i was able to skin the widget and make it transparent, but it seems impossible on 2.1.15, tried many different ways...any chance for a naked background option to be added?

We have recently released XiiaLive v2.1.6 which contains open API beta support. With this you can now create your own widgets that work with XiiaLive and publish them on the Android Market.

definitely! an option i've seen on some other apps, like beautiful widgets for instance, is a transparency or opaqueness option for the widget background with a sliding adjustment
plus i want to add a vote for the 60 seconds of buffering time...would be awesome

that would be nice
Yes, I like those styles of designs... I'm not a designer, I'm the developer if I tried making one would look very bad! :P Our graphic designer is a bit busy with other work and tends to be hard to get more UI updates on the app fast enough... If you already have a design for a widget post a link so we can check it out ;) thanks!
i would love to help out, let me know...i posted a link to my modded version of 2.1.14 but cant repost it right now

download my modded version from there, and youll see what i mean if you install it on an mdpi phone
I like the enthusiasm you have with our work and customizing... I feel a little weary about going under the apk changing things. The next update we are releasing will have the added open API support. These will be intents you can send and catch to the streaming service.
i been on xda forums for over a year now, and have a pretty good reputation there and on the cyanogenmod forum...i would love to become involved if they let me... seemingly they dont have enough time..the reason i like xiia live over the other apps out there is because it seems to hold the stream better than the others and it has the audio indicators of when the stream is connected, dropped and streaming...i cant tell you how comforting that is when youre driving and a signal is dropped, and it starts up again, at least i know its working instead of just holding my breath and wondering, like i have to do with the other apps...a very nice feature you guys thought of there

@Jona - when can we expect this support?

Has anyone produced a transparent widget?

I can't find one :-(

Sorry, I have been unable to create a clear widget on the newer versions due to the manner in which the widget is coded now. It used to be as simple as changing a .png image, but its now made differently.
