Screen Of the Day on 11/05/2012
Date Added: Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 at 9:24 pm

PLEASE ZOOM

Hi, here’s a screen inspired by the nex Clock app in Android 4.2 ( http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/29/3569516/android-4-2-screenshots#3890305 ).

I hope you like it !

Tutorial

  1. 1. Setting of Apex launcher: 6*3 grid, large horizontal margins, no vertical margin, dock activated (7 icons)
  2. 2. Set the wallpapers thanks to Multipicture Wallpaper.
  3. 3. On the first screen, put a 3x3 UCCW widget, import "4.2-battery circle".
  4. 4. Do the same with "4.2-analog clock" and "4.2-weather icon".
  5. 5. On the first screen, put a 3x1 UCCW widget, import "4.2-battery state".
  6. 6. Do the same with "4.2-clock" and "4.2-"Mainetnant"".
  7. 7. Put your shortcuts in the dock and make their icons transparent.
  8. 8. You can also put the pages shortcuts at the top and make their icons transparent, but it really isn't necessary ;).

    Congratulation, this screen has been selected as Screen of the Day 11/05/12

    @Peachanan Thank you so much :D !

    Looks great! “4.2-”Mainetnant”” is missing from the zip though!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @Wooter Oops I forgot it, sorry. Download the zip file again and it should be ok :).

    The 4.2-”Mainetnant Uzip just shows me a white background? Please help. The rest works fine. :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @sefira That’s weird, I’ll upload it again later because I can’t right now. If you want to make it yourself it’s easy : a 4×1 UCCW widget, the dimension is 696×228, and the text is in Roboto light, size 80.

    Wow! Beautiful job, @Samauriz.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @Ste11a Thank you :) !

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @sefira It should be fixed now. If it doesn’t want to work, I don’t know what else I could do ^^’.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/sefira sefira

    Thanks I managed to create the text myself. It is really beautiful, thanks again. :)

    @sefira You’re welcome ;) !

    I had created a nexus clock last week. For next update, I had this exact same thing in my mind. But if I crate the skins now, people will say I stole your idea. So, dropping it. :(
    Good job, btw. Screens are looking cool.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @vicky_buddie Thanks !
    I guess it happens to everyone ^^’.

    I really love it and am going to throw it on my Nexus, but I’m going to 1) work on replacing those toggles with a notification widget so I can hide the status bar and 2) adding a small clock on every screen.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @mechaphil Thanks, nice idea ;).

    2. Maintenant is displayed as a white block.
    3. simple calender looks different than it looks in above image. It has black semitransparent black background with date on left side.

    can someone pls help me over here…

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @sumitvc9
    1. You can configure this in the settings of UCCW.

    2. It already happened to someone else in the comments above but apparently I didn’t manage to fix it. ” If you want to make it yourself it’s easy : a 4×1 UCCW widget, the dimension is 696×228, and the text is in Roboto light, size 80. ”

    3. You can configure this in the settings of Simple Calendar Widget.

    This must solve your problems !

    I can’t figure out how to add the wallpaper to the Apex Launcher without it asking me to crop some out. Any help would be appreciated.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @citizensnips For this screen, you need to set the three wallpapers with MultiPicture Live Wallpaper

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/citizensnips citizensnips

    @Samauriz Thank you!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/citizensnips citizensnips

    Last question, how do you make icons transparent?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz

    @citizensnips Long press on the shortcut, edit, click on the icon and select a blank PNG (you should find one on Google or it’s super easy to create one)

    Good

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Samauriz Samauriz
