Kodi Skin Highlight: Titan
Today we are going to look at my personal favorite skin for Kodi, Titan. At first glance Titan looks like a straight clone of the classic MediaPortal theme, but under the hood Titan is arguably the most flexible and customizable skin I have ever seen. Marcel van der Veldt, who created and maintains Titan, has managed to pack absolutely every option you could ever want (and probably a few you didn’t know you wanted) into one skin.
One of my favorite Titan features is its customizable home screen layouts and themes. With a quick selection you can change the entire color scheme, or switch from the MediaPortal styled home screen to a confluence-like one or even a Windows 10 tile based layout. It is like having a bunch of skins all rolled into one and every part of them can be changed to suit your exact style.
According to the official Kodi Forum thread:
Titan’s key features are:
- Compatible with Kodi Jarvis (16)
- Fully user customizable, including color settings and theme.
- Multiple homescreen layouts.
- Focus on artwork everywhere in the skin.
- Smart shortcuts features: ease the use of addons and favourites
- Optimized for speed while retaining nice looking graphics
- Very user friendly (high W.A.F.)
- Lot’s of views to fit your media and personal needs
- Full touchscreen support (has to be enabled in skin settings)
- Fully customizable menu shortcuts and widgets
Titan also play well with a whole host of popular Kodi addons including:
- Extended Info script
- Video Extra’s
- Tv Tunes
- Artwork downloader
- Artist slidehsow
- Emby for Kodi
- Tvshows Next Aired
- Rom Collection Browser (widget only)
- Skin shortcuts
- CU LRC Lyrics
- NextUp Episodes service
I have tried a lot of Kodi skins, and most of them have something I love but I always end up back with Titan. No other skin I have used has the sheer level of customizability that Titan brings to the Party. In addition, Titan has an incredibly responsive developer and great community that try to constantly elevate Titan to be the best it can possibly be.
Titan is a breeze to install. It is available in the official Kodi repository, or if you like to live dangerously Titan Beta is available in the Emby Beta Repository.
Do you have a favorite Kodi skin that you think can unseat the mighty Titan as my favorite? Let us know!
