SimpleSkinViewer is a Java based program to view skins of other Minecraft players. You have also the possibility to download it or change it automatically for your Minecraft Account. The Software is 100% free without any ads and very user friendly. Due to the fact that it's written in Java, all platforms like Windows, Linux or Mac OS are supported. Moreover, since Minecraft 1.8 the skin files changed. SimpleSkinViewer already support that type of skins and from older Minecraft versions, as well.
Note: This software does not display a 3D skin, only the skin files.
