Screen Of the Day on 10/22/2012
Date Added: Friday, October 19th, 2012 at 2:43 am

kept it simple with next cal event displayed in the center (tap opens calendar). I text a hundred times more than calling so I don’t have an icon for the phone. I use an few home screen gestures to make up for that.

Nova Launcher Prime Gestures:
Double tap = phone
Swipe up = app drawer
Swipe down = notification bar

Tutorial

  1. 1. Set Nova Launcher desktop grid to 7 x 6 (Rows x Columns)
  2. 2. Add 3x1 Minimalistic Text widget: Roboto - Light font (size 18), Temp (text), Static Text (degree symbol)
  3. 3. Add 6x1 Minimalistic Text widget: Roboto - Light font, "Next Cal event" @ "Next Cal event location". NEXT LINE - "Next Cal event start wkday
  4. 4. Add 3x1 Minimalistic Text widget: Roboto - Light font, month (text), date
  5. 5. Change back ground transparency for each Minimalistic Text widget to different alpha values
  6. 6. Resize google search bar to fit into 3x1 space
  7. 7. Replace icons with appropriate image. Text icon at the bottom can be found within a zip in the icon file.

    for some reason Google Play is telling me that Nova Launcher is incompatible with my device, even though it shouldn’t. anyone know why this is? (exhibit II)

    @dbnp what android version are you on? Nova Launcher requires Android 4.0 and up. Another good launcher to try would be GO launcher, which only requires Android 2.0 and up.

    ah okay, that was my mistake. I didn’t pay attention to the version. i’ve been re-installing roms and that slipped past me. haha. thanks for the quick response.
