Kodi has fast become beloved online streaming software amongst “cord cutters” & “cord nevers”. There is so much that you can do over Kodi XBMC including watch videos, listen to music, use different programs, watch photo slideshows and even customize your Kodi with the best skins available for the media center. So, I embarked on the mission to find the best Kodi krypton skins of 2017.
Best Kodi Krypton Skins 2017
The default estuary skin for Krypton was one of the best changes that developers made to the software, but users’ usually demand using other skins on Kodi Krypton while customizing other display features. Let’s get started with our countdown of the best kodi krypton version 17 skins of 2017:
1) Aeon Nox 5: Redux – Best Kodi Krypton Skin For May 2017
Possibly one of the most attractive & in my opinion best Kodi Krypton skins “Aeon Nox 5: Redux”offer some great visual changes in Kodi. You can edit the design view of your Kodi add-ons plus change backgrounds for every different add-on too. The skin is available in three color themes including the default Metallic theme, a Red & Grey theme and an Orange theme.
The most attractive feature of Aeon Nox 5 that you will definitely love is the varying window views you can assign to your add-ons. You can also configure every different page to have its own unique view, for instance I can assign a different view for each Exodus category and subcategory page.
How to Install Aeon Nox 5: Redux on Kodi Krypton Version 17
- From your Home Screen go to System >Interface >click Skin
- Click Get More >scroll &find Aeon 5 Nox: Redux, then click it
- Let Kodi install the new skin, when completed it will ask “If you like to keep this change”, click Yes
- You should now have Aeon 5 Nox on your Kodi
2) Metropolis Kodi Krypton Skin
Another top rated Kodi Krypton skins is the eye candy Metropolis skin also available through Kodi add-on repository and can be installed from System menu. Metropolis has a beautiful design loaded with media in form of text, best images and icons for every feature, it completely changes the way your Kodi Krypton looks compared to all other best Kodi krypton skins. Metropolis offers a fusion of retro & modern elements giving it a more appealing look than most homogeneous Kodi krypton skins built over confluence or estuary themes.
Metropolis skin offers a brilliant mix of simple icons with appropriate images and attractive fonts. Metropolis skin presents excellent visualizations when you are accessing your media in your video, music and program add-ons. Each media item gets displayed with its own IMDB ratings, synopsis, and viewer ratings. You will also find description for your settings and system menu.
Designed with finesse & simplicity in mind, Metropolis is probably the best skin for Kodi Krypton users’ who like an easy to navigate but animated interface. You can change between 7 different attractive themes in Metropolis skin plus the really cool icons & image tabs are absolutely magic. Apart from the beautiful UI, Metropolis allows you to tweak lots of features including add-on images, poster fan art, gallery images, and change the view of various menus within Kodi’s interface.
3) AMBER Kodi Krypton Skin
The Amber skin for Kodi Krypton is a massive life breather into the mobile version of the celebrated media center. Compatible with Kodi versions Gotham and above, the Amber skin is a superb synergy of style and speed. The lightweight skin offers exceptional customization through its easy to use menus, while offering themes in 4 different colors, the default rustic design being my favorite.
The biggest advantage of Amber skin is over touchscreen devices, and if you have used the Krypton on mobile you will agree, the navigation & buttons are just deplorable. Amber gives Krypton (especially mobile) a classy look in addition to sorting out that ease to touch screen scrolling and tapping.
4) Unity Kodi Krypton Skin
Inspired by Google’s Material Design, Unity looks a lot like your Android phone screen on Kodi. Stylish menus and superb menu transitions lands the skin in our 5 best skins for Kodi Krypton. Unity is simply unique and bears no resemblance to other Kodi krypton skins.
It’s a great interface for Android users who use Kodi on Android devices, plus you can customized backgrounds, icons, window displays and menus. Using simple fonts Unity skin offers a clearer and more vibrant look to your Kodi media player. As soon as you change from estuary you will notice that Unity makes the desktop look spacious
5) Mimic Kodi Krypton Skin
Mimic is another Estuary inspired skin with larger fonts and display icons. Mimic is a brilliant theme for Kodi Android users and those who love larger display themes. Mimic makes going around on your touch devices easier and faster without experiencing false clicks. Another brilliant aspect I noticed was that Mimic skin is much faster than Estuary or Confluence, sliding through screens is much fluid you will notice.
I also like the simple icons and arrangement of icons within various menus. Each icon in the settings menu displays the submenus below the option as you can see in the screenshots below. When browsing add-ons a brief description of the add-on accompanies the icon & name. I’m really impressed by Mimic’s fluid interface on my Android phone, scrolling is better and I can see the icons clearly for once.
