The Bravo RoundCube skin has been developed and is in the final testing phases. So hold on tight, as it will be ready soon.

Both the desktop version as well as the mobile version will be bundled together. The theme switcher will automatically detect if you are using an iPhone, Samsung or any other smartphone. This will make it the ideal roundcube skin to use, whether you are working at home or on the go.

Thank you all for your input concerning the Alpha and LiteCube skins. We have now finished fixing the reported problems and implementing the new functionality that you requested. The upgraded themes and the theme selector plugin are now available for download!

The Alpha theme has undergone a complete overhaul. It has been re-coded from scratch to support all the available Roundcube functionality and to work better with plugins. LiteCube didn't need as much fixing, but we did fix some problems and added some missing plugin icons.

The main improvements of the mobile versions of the themes include better support for Windows Phone and fixed address bar hiding on iPhone and Android.

The theme selector plugin (which switches between the desktop and mobile themes depending on the browser used) also got upgraded and had one major bug fixed.

If you have an active upgrade license, you can download the new themes from the customer area. If you are interested in purchasing the themes, you can do it in our store. You can also see some screenshots here: Alpha and LiteCube. A live demo is available here.

But that's not all the news we have for you today! We just finished working on the long-awaited Bravo theme for Roundcube. We're now running some final tests, and the theme should be available for purchase in a few days! Stay tuned!

A sleek looking interface is in the works. It's simple, yet functional and to the point.
The W21 Roundcube theme is in the development process. The desktop version has been completed and we are currently working on the mobile version. The mobile version is ideal for anyone with a smartphone (iPhone, Samsung, etc..)
Our custom built theme switcher will work automatically behind the scenes, so whether you are working from home or on the go, your RoundCube email will always look the way you want it.

We will keep you updated on the development process. Until then have a look at the screenshots of the desktop version.

The Roundcube team has been very busy this past year, they released 7 upgrades to Roundcube! The latest version, 0.7, doesn't introduce any new functionality, but it does fix a lot of bugs and security issues. We wanted to make sure our skins are fully compatible with the newly released Roundcube before we crack the New Year's champagne, and we made it! You can download the fixed Alpha and Alpha Mobile from the customer area. Litecube and Litecube mobile didn't need any fixing, so there's no need to re-download those.

And since this is probably our last blog entry this year, we wanted to wish you all a happy New Year and thank you for using our Roundcube themes! We hope to provide you with even more and better software in 2012!

We upgraded our Roundcube Alpha skin to version 2.0.1. This upgrade fixes some display problems on Internet Explorer 7 and 8. We recommend that you suggest to your Roundcube email users upgrading to Internet Explorer 9 or above, since the earlier versions aren't fully compatible with the latest technologies used in Roundcube so there might still be some display discrepancies there and there. You can download the latest version of the Alpha skin from the customer area.

Two of our Roundcube skins, LiteCube and Alpha, have been upgraded to version 2.0 and are now fully compatible with the newly released Roundcube 0.6. If you have purchased these skins, you can download the new versions in our customer area. Please note that the new themes will work properly only with Roundcube 0.6. They will not work with any previous versions of Roundcube.

This upgrade concerns only the desktop skins. The mobile skins (LiteCube Mobile and Alpha Mobile version 1.1) are compatible with Roundcube 0.6 without needing any upgrades.

I'd also like to mention that since in most cases Roundcube skins are not backward compatible, we'll continue actively developing only the latest versions of the skins. The previous versions (compatible with the older versions of Roundcube) will be available for download, but will not be fixed or upgraded anymore. So if you submit any suggestions or bug reports, they will be implemented or fixed only in the skins compatible with the latest version of Roundcube. If you're using an older Roundcube version, we encourage you to upgrade to get the latest and best of what our skins have to offer.

Our demo has also been upgraded to Roundcube 0.6.

The Alpha Roundcube Skin has been updated to version 2.0 and is now fully compatible with the newly released Roundcube 0.7.

This package includes:
Alpha Desktop Theme 2.1
Alpha Mobile Theme 1.2
Theme Selector 1.1

I come across many questions on various forums asking why there are so few Roundcube skins. Users don't understand why such a widespread and fast growing system like Roundcube can have so few theme choices.

As far as I can see, there are two main reasons for the lack of Roundcube skins. The first reason is that Roundcube has a very quick development cycle: new program versions are released fairly frequently. This is great for the webmail functionality, but unfortunately it's a difficulty in skin development. By the time a developer creates, tests and distributes a skin, a new version of Roundcube will be available and the old skin most likely won't work on it. It needs to be upgraded and in some cases undergo a complete overhaul. Not many developers can afford keeping in step with the new Roundcube releases.

The situation is even more complicated with Roundcube skins for mobile devices. In addition to the development cycle problems, there's the inherent lack of Rouncube support for mobile systems. It's just plain difficult to create a Roundcube mobile skin. When creating ours, we spent a lot of time not only putting together the designs, but developing the technology needed to transform the typically desktop-oriented Roundcube output into a mobile-friendly form. It was a challenge to say the least.

But mobile devices are here to stay and will only gain more users as time goes on, so providing Roundcube and SquirrelMail with mobile skins is very important. If you ever tried using Roundcube with its default skin on an iPhone or a smartphone with Android you know what I mean.

Well, even there aren't dozens of Roundcube skins available out there, at least there are a couple on our site you can try :). We have two skins available, Alpha and LiteCube, both bundled with their mobile versions and a plugin that selects the correct skin version (desktop or mobile) depending on the device that's used to check the mail. In a few days we should be done with upgrading the themes to work on the newly released version of Roundcube (0.6). If you'd like to see how the skins look, click here, or visit our Roundcube demo. We hope you'll enjoy using Roundcube with our mobile themes on your smartphone!

We have upgraded the RoundCube Alpha and LiteCube Mobile themes to version 1.1. RoundCube includes functionality for inline display of PDF mail attachments, but Alpha Desktop and both mobile themes had problems handling this properly. The problems have now been fixed and PDF attachments can be viewed and scrolled. On the iPhone, use one finger to scroll the main page, and two fingers to scroll the pages of the displayed PDF.

We have also fixed the mail column widths in Alpha Desktop, so the subject line always fills all the available table space.

You can download the upgraded versions of the themes by logging in to our customer area. If you'd like to purchase any of our RoundCube themes, visit our online store.

LiteCube 2.0 has been released. The desktop version of the skin is free for personal use. The full package, which includes the desktop and the mobile skins, is available under a commercial license.

We’re pleased to announce that the long awaited Roundcube Alpha skin has just been released! But it’s much more than just a Roundcube skin, it’s a package that includes a desktop theme, a mobile theme and a plugin that selects either one depending on which browser is used.

The way this works is pretty simple. You install two themes: "alpha" and "alpha_mobile". You install the Theme Selector plugin. Now if you check your mail using a desktop browser, say, Internet Explorer, the "alpha" theme will be loaded. If you use an iPhone, "alpha_mobile" will be loaded.

Alpha Mobile is the first mobile Roundcube skin of its kind. It has been developed from scratch to make sure it installs and functions as a normal Roundcube theme, but works and feels like a mobile app. Since the current version of Roundcube is made specifically for desktop browsers and is geared to be operated using a mouse, it took some creative thinking and programming to make it work on touch screen mobile devices. We’re pleased with the result, please let us know what you think!

We have also released a similar desktop/mobile package for our existing LiteCube skin, so in total there are two complete cross-device solutions you can choose from.

Screenshots are available in the gallery.

We launched the LiteCube skin, you can grab a free personal version from our NutsMail.com website. You can also buy the commercial version to be used in a business environment.

Yes, this is taking longer than expected. We also have many other projects we're working on and client requests for our other skin site www.NutsMail.com so launching this new skin will continue being a work in progress.

We are trying to develop a genuinely good user interface, simple, user friendly yet aesthetically pleasing. We're gathering input at this early development stage, drop us a comment and we'll consider it!

Zero cost and Lite features make this a very attractive new skin for Roundcube. It's a free download. Give it a try.

Based on Roundcube 0.4-stable version. We will be updating the skin for each new stable release so you will always be up-to-date with a working skin.

*Free for personal use. Commercial licenses available.

Updates:

-We are just finishing the design for the all the inside pages (address book, settings, read mail etc...).

-We're expecting to have this ready for download by the end of August.

-Because of our recent office move we have had to push this project forward one month to the end of Sept.

*The difference between the personal and commercial licenses.

  • Our definition of commercial is using the skin for paying customers or business websites.
  • Our definition of personal use is for yourself on a non-businesses, non-profit website.

Commercial licenses will get premium email support.

For the free version please refer to the forum page for help.

We're please to announce that we, at NutsMail, have begun working on roundcube skins. Roundcube offers many benefits as a webmail client, including some nice ajax features such as drag and drop and right clicking options.

Roundcube already looks good which is probably why there aren't many skins out there. However we wanted to add some variety and offer skins for anyone wanting to change the look and feel, needing something less like everyone else is using.

Free Skins

We will also be creating some free skins along with our premium versions. We hope there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

Shopping Cart and Downloads

We will be integrating our NutsMail cart into Roundcubeskins.net in the near future. You will be able to use the same account for both NutsMail and Roundcubeskins for your downloads.
