Pimp My Band 1.2 gets custom color option for your Microsoft Band
Last Friday, we featured the brand new app Pimp My Band on Windows Central. The app is the first of its kind, letting users who are lucky enough to own a Microsoft Band to customize the Me tile background.
Today, version 1.2 is live in the Store, and it brings a new feature: custom color palettes.
Now, after you choose a photo for your background, you have the option of picking the color of the Microsoft Band accent color. The three choices for the colors are:
- Match picture dominant
- Maintain Band color
Picture dominant grabs the most prevalent color in your photo and uses that for the Band. This option is certainly the best choice for most users. However, you can also keep it as is or, go for some contrast and pick your own through a gradient picker. We just tried it using an image from Windows Central and found it to be working as expected.
If you have not seen the Pimp My Band app in action, make sure to watch our hands-on video above. Otherwise go to the Store and grab this must-have app (also check out the excellent Band Sensor Monitor!)
