    love it thanks :D
    - sir hugo I just have a little problem, I’ve noticed that the text in the wallpapers are not readable like the text in the music player “play more music”, etc is there any remedy for this problem?

    Great work, started following this but it got all messed up…You need to make a step by step like what widget goes where, how to get the clock to look like how you have (tried to get but can’t see the info on the right side), how to get the clock to look like that, what was used for social networks, like instructions for dummies :)

    In any case this is a very nice look, just takes a lot of time since the instructions aren’t that simple to follow…

    Also realised there is no notification bar, how do you know if you got a message, email or missed phone call?

    Great UI! Already using…
    I will make the text in wallpapers more visible, cuz i cant read then :)

    One question, how can i add the little icon for received messagens right after clock and day ?

    another question, are you from Brazil ?

    Since you guys had some difficulties do achieve this look, i will make a video.

    ThaNerd i use gestures, swipe down to see the notification bar, but i also have the pop up in sms,phone and gmail icons, and xperia s have colors for different notification.

    carlos from Portugal.
    I can read the text, but i know that some devices (screen) it’s very difficult to read, i will change that.

    @hugocamara hi sir how’s the video tutorial? anyway I found some awesome wallpapers and I think It would be perfect if you will use it in your next project or make something like this Google now blue version. I can’t do it because I have no knowledge in photoshop or photo editing, I will provide the wallpapers and icons I found if you like, I will be waiting for your response. Thank you :D
