    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 :)

    Very nice! And I agree with OpenIntro; would love to have the UCCW file.

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

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

    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.

    I will drop a UCCW here tonight or tomorrow :) I’ve almost got it perfect! Love this homescreen! Thanks!

    @TimoVino :D
    @OpenIntro Thank you!

    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???

  17. Posted 2012/11/14 at 5:36 am | Permalink

    @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.

  20. Posted 2012/11/14 at 5:14 pm | Permalink

    @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 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…

  24. Posted 2012/11/16 at 8:21 pm | Permalink

    @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.

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

  26. Posted 2012/11/17 at 1:11 am | Permalink

    i am trying but cant figure this out

  35. Posted 2013/06/16 at 1:20 am | Permalink

    @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.

  36. Posted 2013/07/04 at 12:19 pm | Permalink

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

  37. Posted 2013/07/10 at 11:33 pm | Permalink

    how can i download this?

  38. Posted 2013/09/04 at 8:23 am | Permalink

    I can’t get the gmail notification to work, I get 3 dashes. I’ve added my gmail account but when I receive an email, it doesn’t get updated. Anyone know why?
