Screen Of the Day on 01/22/2013
Date Added: Thursday, January 17th, 2013 at 6:51 pm

I wasn’t completely happy with Tiles 2.1 so I started over. I needed a Play icon so I went for a new grid size as well as added the calendar greatly inspired by http://mycolorscreen.com/2013/01/14/favourites/
The notifications are probably the main reason for starting over. I wanted a lot of info but in a small space that wasn’t overwhelming.
Wallpaper is based on the Cuben project by www.simoncpage.co.uk

Tutorial

  1. 1. Grid 7x6 with no margins, no notification bar, no dock bar.
  2. 2. The UCCW notification bar is size 1x5 which is then resized in launcher to 1x6 (since 1x6 is not an option in UCCW).
  3. 3. The UCCW clock is 3x3.

    ZOOM! Otherwise you’ll miss the point with the notification bar ;)

    Oh! All resources such as psd-file, wallpaper, icons and UCCW skins are found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8ngtmpg62g5sglk/bXalXEkxux

    the notification is awesome

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/nico29 nico29

    amazing work!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/rockbmi rockbmi

    Will the wallpaper calendar change each month

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @dfolk Thanks! :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @nico29 Thanks :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @rockbmi I wish it would :/ But of course I will create one for February if I still have this wallpaper by then :) Remind me if you want one for Feb as well!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Sandman007 Sandman007

    The icon.zip is broken.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @Sandman007 Sorry! It’s fixed now :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fugu2_0 fugu2_0

    @dadilydoo

    maybe you could use Android Pro Widgets for the calendar?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ravensysteam ravensysteam

    GreatJob!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @ravensysteam Thanks :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/marcellolins marcellolins

    @Dadilydoo Is this wallpaper ready for the Galaxy Nexus ? Is there any need to crop the wallpaper in order to make it work ?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/marcellolins marcellolins

    Also, i will need to change the wallpaper every month since the calendar is static

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @marcellolins If you use Nove Launcher you crop it with Nova and use the portrait mode. Make it as large as possible. Other way is to use Quickpic. If you use Quickpic I recommend that you create two screens in your lancher, set the wallpaper with Quickpic as large as possible and then remove the second empty screen :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @marcellolins Ah, yes. I will probably do that myself if I don’t change my theme before the end of the month. Otherwise please remind me and I will :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/sugar87 sugar87

    thank you so much :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo
  • http://mycolorscreen.com/abdielol abdielol

    stunning! your work is amazing!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @abdielol Thank you very much :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/jibaro009 jibaro009

    @dadilydoo could you please double check the icon pack. It seems to be corrupt, I get an error when I try to decompress the file.

    Thanks,

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @jibaro009 Huh, that’s weird! I can decompress it just fine :/ But anyways, if you look in the dropbox folder at the top comments you will see that the icons are also in a folder to be downloaded individually :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/peachananr Peachanan

    Congratulation, this screen has been selected as Screen of the Day 01/22/13

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @Peachanan Wow :) Thank you!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Matthewscottk Matthewscottk

    Really like this screen. I’ve been trying to put it together however the UCCW for the Notifications only brings up a white box when I open it. Any tips?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @Matthewscottk Hmm. Weird. Do you have the latest UCCW available on Play Store? If not try to update it and try again :) Also, try to download it another time in case the download failed somewhere and that’s why. I just tried it with another device and the uzip works for me!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Matthewscottk Matthewscottk

    Sorry man, I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled UCCW, downloaded the Notification UZip 5 times, and still won’t load :/ Every other Uzip including your clock works but when I choose the notifications one it freezes and then loads a white box. I’ll try to recreate the UCCW though.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Matthewscottk Matthewscottk

    Got it to work! Looks great.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @Matthewscottk Great to hear it works. Hope you didn’t have to redo it yourself! Really weird that it didn’t work for you. The only thing I could come up with is that you should apply the skin BEFORE you resize it from 5×1 to 6×1.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/aksackz aksackz

    Looks amazing!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    Thanks! :) @aksackz

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/GhiffaryM GhiffaryM

    sory, why UCCW notifications can’t load in my screen?
    just a white box

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/x1tymez x1tymez

    Nice. Can you create February Calendar or PSD for it. Any more icons? TIA

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/asrohab asrohab

    Looks sick! Can you provide the link for the full wallpaper, the one in the background? Thanks a whole lot.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @rockbmi @asrohab @x1tymez @marcellolins The dropbox folder is updated with a February screen as well :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Jlamour4 Jlamour4

    can I get the pattern wallpaper by itself?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @asrohab @Jlamour4 No prob :) The original is by Simon C Page and can be found here: http://simoncpage.co.uk/blog/ (or google Cuben project)
    I have modified his wallpaper a bit and the full version is available in the dropbox folder now.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @GhiffaryM I’m sorry but I have no idea what’s wrong :( I can download it from my dropbox to a different device and it works flawlessly. Matthew Kaufman got it to work (or he redid it) in the comments above. Maybe he can provide you one that works :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/raycolon raycolon

    very nice. detailed and simple. :thumbup:

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Matthewscottk Matthewscottk

    @GhiffaryM

    Try this one here.

    https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=8E0C79D58C819F6D!169&authkey=!AOvovKO6bgUuK6w

    If that doesn’t work, do what I did. Download the Notifications UCCW on another device, open up the file, export as .uzip, upload the new .uzip to cloud service of choice, then download on the device you want it on. Takes only a few minutes.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/x1tymez x1tymez

    @dadilydoo Can you check UCCW notification bar. For some reason, weather don’t update on its own. I double check on UCCW setting and still no go.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @raycolon Thanks :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @x1tymez The notification bar seems to be a problem for a lot of users :( It works for me on all units I’ve tried it on so all I could think of is to remove the temperature and add it again. The font is Roboto Thin and it’s for free.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ekjl ekjl

    Nice theme.

    Do you have anymore notification icons? Or where can I get them from / find them?

    Thanks.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Takeshi29 Takeshi29

    WOw, it looks really nice, congratulation !
    Just a question, How did you do the calendar ? If I want to do it myself for an other skin or for the month of March, how can I do ?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/haiuyu haiuyu

    this homescreen is great! however i wish there could have been more variety of icons. i added 12 apps in it, not 8. hehe. also, i wish i could replace the UCCW object week of the year to year instead. but hey, this is amazing! thanks a lot! :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Kanestapler Kanestapler

    When I try to set the background using Nova this happens. Anyone know how to fix this?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @ekjl Thanks :) The notification icons are from Iconsweets 2.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @Takeshi29 Hi! The calendar is part of the wallpaper and made in Photoshop. I have made one for February already (it’s in my Dropbox) and I will make one for March later on :) Also, if you’re familiar with Photoshop the PSD is available in the dropbox.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @haiuyu Indeed I just put my most used ones in there :) Of course you can edit the uzip so it shows the year instead. The font is Roboto Thin :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/x1tymez x1tymez

    @dadilydoo Yeah I tired remove Current Weather and re-add it. It works for awhile and stopped. Don’t know what the issues. :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/rrohanjs rrohanjs

    hey your screen has no white space on top, but on my gnex im getting a white bar on top when i stretch the wallpaper completely as you mentioned

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/rrohanjs rrohanjs

    well this is what i landed up doing with your screen :) thankyou
    http://mycolorscreen.com/2013/01/28/tiles-3-1-dark/

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @rrohanjs I also have a white bar on top :) Your dark theme looks great!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ryanyanuarsyah ryanyanuarsyah

    nice and simple :D

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Agiz Agiz

    Love the icons ! did you made them by yourself ?!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @Agiz Yes and no. Some were taken from Iconsweets 2 icon pack and were just recolored whereas some were made from scratch by me.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/kaufel kaufel

    @dadilydoo i couldnt get the files, is there something wrong with the dropbox files?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @kaufel I can acces dropbox from a different unit. Please try again!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Mashari_F Mashari_F

    hey, the icon zip is broken

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @Mashari_F All the icons are in the dropbox folder, both as a working zip and as a folder.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/carrman17 carrman17

    Ahhhhhh this is beautiful!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/lp93 lp93

    hi i just finished punting this on my s3, but i’. having a problem with the notification bar, i cant seem to make it fit, the gmail, temp and battery notification are all bundle up together how do i fix it?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/lp93 lp93

    never mind fixed it :) awesome bye screen btw :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/andygarcia andygarcia

    Hi, I just set this up and it looks great! Although I am having some problems with the Gmail part on the notifications bar. It overlaps with the battery and temperature parts. Other than that, I loved this theme. Keep it up!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/andygarcia andygarcia

    Nevermind, I got it to work. For those experiencing this problem, touch the notification bar, then it will open up to UCCW, after that touch “select object” and select Gmail 1. After that, swipe all the way to Controls 5. Touch accounts then touch the account you want. Then go to label and touch inbox.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/mrjoeltan mrjoeltan

    How would I change the wallpaper thing to a wallpaper of my choosing?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @mrjoeltan I use Photoshop for that :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/samilou1989 samilou1989

    I love this, infact its the only one I’ve seen so far that I would like on my phone…but I’m new to all this as I’ve always had iPhones until my S3, wishing the tutorial was a bit more ‘noob friendly’.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @samilou1989 Sorry about that! A video tutorial made by mycolorscreen is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeuHPEPibNI

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/chazelkins chazelkins

    Hey! Can we get a calendar for April?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @ovdevil @chazelkins Hey guys! April is now available in the dropbox :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/brad9106@XDA brad9106

    Is there a way to change the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/1kurdistan@XDA 1kurdistan

    the gmail, temp and battery notification are all bundle up together how do I fix it? I can’t see the “select object” in UCCW, can you please help, I watched the tutorial on youtube as well but I can’t work it out.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/1kurdistan@XDA 1kurdistan

    Sorted thanks, I had to click on background in UCCW and chose gmail from there I could find it thanks for this great job.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @brad9106 Sorry, for the late reply. From what I know the degrees shown is based on your system preferences. I.e, if you have Fahrenheit on your phone the widget will show the temp in Fahrenheit.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/allxmyxlovin allxmyxlovin

    This is gorgeous. Please please keep updating the calendars so I can keep using it! Also, do you have any plans of changing the geometric design? Perhaps another one from that same artist? Thanks!!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/AR AR

    Hey, could we get a calendar for the month of May and June please! Thanks so much!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @AR @allxmyxlovin Hey! Nice to see people still using this screen :) I will make a new one tonight with the same setup but with calendars for future months and a few more backgrounds to choose from. However, I will upload it as a new separate screen.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/dadilydoo dadilydoo

    @AR @allxmyxlovin @1kurdistan @brad9106 @chazelkins @ovdevil @samilou1989 I just uploaded the Tiles 4.0. Same shit, more snacks :)
