    Thank you guys!
    I updated the description.
    The whole homescreen is based on the wallpaper. What I mean is that the UCCWs are plain text without icons or bg.

    Extremely flippin epic job, good sir.
    Perhaps some tessellating triangle icons lower down, maybe 70% size? Just an idea. Really really awesome.

    @Rofro96 Thank you very much :D
    Great idea btw. I’ll give it a try ;)

    Which Grotesque font are you using?

    Also, is it possible for you to save your UCCW and share it here? I’ve tried to line it all up, but it doesn’t look nearly as nice as yours :)

    I Love the setup! Is there a wide version of this wallpaper?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/keeent keeent

    @OpenIntro I’ve user UltraLight and Thin
    @Sammy K. Thanks a lot! :)
    @Jeff Thank you :)

    I don’t have the uccws anymore cause I’m designing a new homescreen.
    However you can create your own uccws for this setup in like 5 minutes.
    Just don’t forget to use 8×5 grid on your launcher.
    As far as the icons are concerned, you can either use blank icons on top of them or create 4 different hotspots (uccw) for each one of them and assign different activities/apps.

    Here you go. I made a portable version of this. Portable in the sense, all the shapes are part of the skin now. No special wallpaper needed.

    @vicky_buddie hey bro can u plz upload the .uzip instead of .apk???

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dhkx dhkx
  • http://mycolorscreen.com/keeent keeent

    @vicky_buddie Please DELETE the uccw skin you have uploaded on Google Play immediately. You never asked for my permission. I wouldn’t have any problem if it was for free but by charging money for something that you ripped off is unacceptable. If you don’t do so I will have to contact Google.

    Can someone teach me how to set the wallpaper without cropping it? Sorry for asking. I’m new here.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/keeent keeent

    @stezo First you have to set on the launcher’s settings the wallpaper mode to “single screen”. What I do in order not to crop the wallpaper is to rotate my phone 90° so that it’s easier to make the selection.

    Love it ! Waouw ! Thanks !

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/keeent keeent

    @dhkx I’m sure it’s him. Check here: http://mycolorscreen.com/2012/10/09/cookie-wheel/

    Just read the last comments.

    Love the uccw skin. nice work! however, i downloaded the .apk @vicky_buddie uploaded here…anyone know how to change to clock to 24 hours? uccw wont let me modify the skin…

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/keeent keeent

    @all I uploaded a .uzip cause it was missing. You don’t have to use vicky_buddies .apk.
    I also uploaded an updated version of the wallpaper cause the old one wasn’t aligned properly.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/keeent keeent

    @bobbypink Use the uzip I uploaded and you won’t have any issues ;)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/JimmyByron JimmyByron

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/xevile xevile

    @rwfilho I can upload you a standalone uccw that I made using the Square design up there but only if Keeent gives me permission to do so.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/efire efire

    When I download and open it in uccw, the uskin only has text, no diamond background. Where can I get that?
