1. Skin Settings --> Homescreen layout --> switch to titan tiles 2 rows of small tiles.

2. The now playing on top right will be a feature request. I can add it to my TODO list on trello:

I suppose you used a background image to make it look like that, right ?
If you're interested, I can look into adding that searchbox in the skin

Ah, okay. Be aware that you can't update the skin anymore once you've modded the xml files.
For example the last beta contains so many changes to the widgets that it will render your skin unusable if you apply your modded xml files.
If you just want some changes that can be optional and are usefull for other users too, I can consider adding your changes as options.
Aother approach would be to create your own Sky skin ;-)

Hey man! I really love what you've done with Titan, I've been trying to get Big Aero's mod working properly, struggling with the OSD as well.
But I was hoping you could post what you've done, so I can install that Titan mod. Smile
