Screen Of the Day on 09/05/2012
%5B%5D
Date Added: Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 at 1:59 pm

This theme is using the same method as my previous ‘Swiping Cards’.
The keys of this sort of screens are:
make the wallpaper not scrolling
overlapping widgets (prime only)
use UCCW as background of widgets

Special thanks to @xNiikk and @mathewrice (Colorfulvisuals) for the inspiration of layout design.

Nova Prime settings:

Desktop –
7×7 grid
set ‘none’ for both width and height margin
no search bar
4 homescreens
‘Cube’ scroll effect…of course
Check infinite scroll, resize widgets, widget overlap and overlap when placing

Drawer – up to you doesn’t affect the setup

Dock –
Enable dock
None width margin
Medium dock height
hide divider and shadow

Look and feel –
hide notification bar

UCCW files:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/12923162/Themes/Cube/uzip.zip

Each surface of cube has 2 to 3 individual uccw widgets and all the weather information is FAKE and static. It’s because I can’t get weather work even I have latest version of UCCW. Please change it back to real info by yourself if it works on your device.

Ask if you are facing difficulties when apply this theme.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @all wallpaper http://db.tt/E7kYdfw3
    it’s only suitable for galaxy nexus with nova settings above.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/pleasenomore pleasenomore

    what is that font you are using?

    EDIT: nevermind, I got it. Great work btw.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/jobe1785 jobe1785

    Wow, I don’t feel like doing screens anymore. Why bother when you’re around. :)
    Just a small favor of you’re not to busy; I prefer using apex over nova, and I know many people have already bought the paid apex app, so could you make a version for it with the small modifications that need to be done?I have to admit I tried doing it myself but failed miserably. Thank you do much

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @jobe1785 Jobe, you are exaggerating XD!
    will try to make it works on apex pro but i need some time as it is quite hard to draw the wall that fit the scale.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/peachananr Peachanan

    Congratulation, this screen has been selected as Screen of the Day 05/09/12

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/mjeezy3947 mjeezy3947

    Omg I suck trying to set this to galaxy note is a fail for me can’t get wallpaper to act right and line up with widgets

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/blackbearblanc blackbearblanc

    great work, mate!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/JYFlyBird JYFlyBird

    Hey Alex. Great work here. It works perfect also on SGS3, paranoid android. (needa adjust the wallpaper a bit).
    By the way, what music player are you using here which has got a transparent widget?

    Thanks

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @Peachanan @blackbearblanc thank you so much again.
    @mjeezy3947 wall fits for galaxy nexus only you have to adjust a bit.
    @JYFlyBird it should work on paranoid phone because it has a bottom status bar which is like the navbar on nexus. Music widget is phantom music control paid version.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ChristopherLK ChristopherLK

    awesome work!!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/JulianoVieira JulianoVieira

    PS: Amazing work indeed!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/jobe1785 jobe1785

    @AT428HK thanks! I appreciate it.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/darKpoiSon darKpoiSon

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/User_Error User_Error

    Severely impressed

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/todd todd

    ALEX T. can you make this for Htc one x ?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/spickett123 spickett123

    @ALEX T. I love your theme!! Regarding UCCW weather, after you install the latest version (2.0.6?) you have to add a couple of new icons to your weather icon set in order for some of the new conditions to show up.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/mjeezy3947 mjeezy3947

    @ALEX T. Yea I know but I wanted so bad I almost have it not as polished as yours but almost got it

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/mjeezy3947 mjeezy3947

    What font is btw that’s the main thing I’m missing right now

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/pleasenomore pleasenomore

    @mjeezy3947 font is Roboto Thin. Thought it might have been on a hunch and it was.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Arabology Arabology

    i have everything ready to use this on my hTC sensation, i’m so excited! but, some uzips seem to be corrupted or something. when trying to import them in UCCW it keeps loading endlessly, and when i try to rename them to .zip to take out the files individually, it says the file is corrupt….any help for this great work of art? :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @Arabology check "compatibility mode"in uccw settings and try again.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @pleasenomore yes it is thanks.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @spickett123 ya everything is fine now thank you.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Arabology Arabology

    Thank you Alex T. i did try that but still doesn’t work properly….:/
    they’re the following: cubebatttoggles.uzip
    cubeemailbrowser.uzip
    cubetimeweather.uzip

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/mjeezy3947 mjeezy3947

    Last thing I promise icons what set is that @pleasenomore

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/jjjnmk jjjnmk

    I’m having the same problem as Arabology. I can’t import those 3 uzip files. Also, should all the icons on the left side of the cube be present in the uccw widgets? If so, they aren’t showing up for me either.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @Arabology @jjjnmk try these uzip files https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public/Themes/Cube/uzip
    @mjeezy3947 @jjjnmk
    you have to have android icons pack stored in your phone, download here: http://developer.android.com/downloads/design/Android_Design_Downloads_20120823.zip

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Arabology Arabology

    @Alex T. the drop box link is to your actual dropbox, i can’t access it x) please give us the download link :) thank you so much for your help, i’m half way through making this work.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/jjjnmk jjjnmk

    @AT428HK Thanks for the icons. I think….only you can access that dropbox link.Thanks so much for taking the time to help Arabology and I. I really love the screen you’ve made .<
    I have just one more question heh. The Camera/Gallery and Text/Phone things are part of the wallpaper. How do you make them functional?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/pleasenomore pleasenomore

    @jjjnmk What i did is use desktop visualizer. its an app. you launch it, pick the app you want it to launch and then pick the icon you want it to have. you have to use an invisible icon so that way when you place it over whatever you want it to launch it lines up and looks pretty. Or just use nova launchers built in feature. Long press the icon, click edit, click the icon, click you preferred way of sorting thru pictures and navigate to the invisible icon. The invis icon is what you need but i think a quick google search will be able to help with that. place it somewhere that it wont take a long time to navigate to

    Hey Alex, this is really great work.
    Could you please help me? When I import the cubeapps.uzip in UCCW, the images are missing from the right hand side. When I try to import the rest, it keeps saying “Please wait, skin import underway”, it stays like this for a few mins then stops working. I am a total nube when it comes to this sort of stuff….

    Thanks

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Requisition Requisition

    Hey Alex, I have what is likely to be the silliest question you’ve received, but how do I actually make the widgets “do” anything?

    What I mean is, whenever I try to select or use any of the widgets, it just takes me back into UCCW for the settings for that widget. The widgets are also unable to rotate as well. Any step I’m missing?

    P.S I don’t suppose their is any kind of guide or video tutorial for this, is there? I tried to search for one before posting this, but I did not find anything.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Requisition Requisition

    Alright, I got my first issue figured out, I had left UCCW in edit mode. >.<

    However, now I'm only able to get the email/browser widget to work. Now if I try something else, like weather or music, the widget turns into a white box and doesn't launch anything. The email/browser widget launchs both Gmail and Chrome just fine. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong? The scrolling feature of the widgets seems to still be non-functional as well.

    EDIT: Alright, not sure what resolved that it, but the widgets simply started working as normal, as far the white box issue goes. I am unable to get the rotating down it seems.

    Alex, I actually really dig your homescreen on your phone, would it be possible to upload those widgets you already have made for us to use? Thanks!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Arabology Arabology

    to make the widgets “do” what you want, choose the the Hotspots in the “Select Object” and edit that up.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AT428HK AT428HK

    @Requisition rss reader, music player and toggles are individual widgets not made by UCCW.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/tony07 tony07

    amazing theme, i envy your creativity! i think a video should be made with a step by step process im just too noob for this, i got everything on my phone but once i try to put the uzip files i cant get them to fit correctly there’s a big gap between the gallery and the clock, can anyone help with this please?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Lennart Lennart

    Going to recreate this on my SGSII. I have been having problems with UCCW weather too, no idea what’s up.

    Edit: Oh right, the wallpaper. Only works with Galaxy Nexus I guess? Or would there be an easy way to scale it to Galaxy S2? Since I don’t get around the cropping menu at all. FIXED (kinda)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/kvpxray kvpxray

    @kazlow I got it to work on the GS3, you have to change the desktop height to medium rather than none, but the only thing is there’s still a small space between the two elements in the green homescreen

    Also, how do you get the gmail unread info to show up? having a hard time finding out that setting

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/darKpoiSon darKpoiSon
