    Not sure why it’s not working, just tried from my wife’s phone, and both Chrome and Firefox and they all worked…
    But try my Google Drive: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B5WnV2n3CzcYYTcyMmVmeGRjUlU

    Hmm apparently it cut off my instructions in the tutorial.
    Anyway, hit menu in SweeterHome > Edit Theme.
    Then in the grey area, hold and press and a pop up should appear.
    If Custom Tray: Favorites is shown in title of the pop-up click Edit. (If not scroll till you find Custom Tray: Favorites and click that, then press menu again > more > Edit)
    Once in edit menu, scroll down till you see Locked and click that to change it to ‘NO’ (I should have uploaded this unlocked in SweeterHome, my apologies)
    Next press back until you have backed out of edit mode (should be 2 or three times).
    Now you can press and hold the favorites area and add app or shortcuts.
    I used Folder Organizer shortcuts so I could change the icons.

    Hi,
    @i_am_topher: I must be stupid or a total newbie. How do I add the month widget when I already have added the battery widget. I can’t click “Press here to set up widget” it opens the battery widget. And the meny under with phone, messages and mail symbol it also open up UCCW, it doesnt open telephone for instance. Can’t you load up a short video tutorial.

    Phone: Samsung Galaxy Note

    Thanks in advanced

    @Tobbe
    I think I might be able to fix both your problems.
    First click one of the uccw widgets, like the battery, to open uccw.
    Then hit your menu button > hotspot mode > on (this shpuld close uccw.)
    Bow when you click the notifications they should open the apps and you should also be able to set the month widget too.

    The only other thing you might need to do before turning on hotspots is changing the uccw gmail notifications to point to your gmail inbox. Let me know if you need help with that too..

    This is a fantastic setup. I am running into a problem with the notification UCCW. First, I switched the text hotspot to GOSMS, but it is working when I press on it. Second, when I click on the gmail, it works, but the counter is not working, it just says Gmail- Select. Any chance you could help out? Thanks.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/I_AM_TOPHER I_AM_TOPHER

    @bamjoe
    What happens when you press on the GOSMS spot? Does it open the UCCW editor? If so, then in the editor click your menu button > Hotspots mode > then On.

    As for the Gmail selection.. open the notification widget in the UCCW editor and hit Select Object > Gmail1. Then in the bottom black area, swipe to the right til you are in Controls #4. From there you can select your Gmail Account and Label (ie Inbox).

    Let me know if that does the trick.

    Thanks all.
    I’m making a more colorful version for my wife. I’ll post in a few days.

    Wow, thank you for such a quick reply. I just figured out the GoSMS problem and your solution for the Gmail problem worked perfectly. Thanks again.
    Do you know of another widget like Plug In Music that works with Pandora?
