    This is awesome. Exactly what I’ve been waiting for. Would you mind sharing the uccw widgets and maybe even the PSD so I can personalise my screens with my own shortcuts?
    Thanks in advance!

  33. Posted 2013/02/13 at 7:22 am | Permalink

    Great job! Looks awesome. What fonts do your UCCW widgets use? What about the ones you used in the wallpapers? Thanks a bunch!

  34. Posted 2013/02/13 at 7:45 am | Permalink

    Nice job! Using it right now! What app did you use for the music and the feeds, thanks! Also for the my agendas

    @vallarellas That is great!! I however have a problem with the UCCW I can’t open the UCCW files, with the app

  41. Posted 2013/02/13 at 3:49 pm | Permalink

    WOW !!! Amazing Concept … i like it :thumbsup:

  42. Posted 2013/02/13 at 11:44 pm | Permalink

    Thanks for the fonts! What widget did you use under the “My Agenda” banner? I couldn’t find it in your UCCW files.

  43. Posted 2013/02/14 at 12:49 am | Permalink

    @buc you should put the uccw files on the uccw directory on your phone.

  44. Posted 2013/02/14 at 1:13 pm | Permalink

    @alexholic @biskwit
    Hello Guys!
    ‘ve updated the folder UCCW adding “RETRO Android Next event.uccw” (agenda).

  45. Posted 2013/02/14 at 3:00 pm | Permalink

    This is a really cool screen You made there vallarellas. And really nice, that You gave us the PSD-files. I’m just building my own version :-)
    I have not been able, to import the uccw-files, so i made some of my own, not that tricky. But what do You mean with “Custom Icons”? Is there an app wich that You made the Icons? So they must be invisible, because the “real” icons are already in the wallpapers… Just a selfmade blank.png?
    And a last question: Would it be possible, to make all the 3 Screens to 1 (PNG or JPG) so that I don’t need the MultiPicture-App? The transition effects are not that pretty when changing the screens…

  46. Posted 2013/02/15 at 2:20 pm | Permalink

    great! love it!

  47. Posted 2013/02/15 at 3:17 pm | Permalink

    Loved it and followed, awesome work!!!
    Also, thanks for sharing!!! (^_^)

    Hi Vallarellas, this is amazing work! Set it up on my Note with multi picture live set to cube transition and it looks great – like a rotating box. Unfortunately multi picture live doesn’t do conitinuous looping (well it kind of does but it transitions back to the first screen rather than continuing on if you know what I mean). Hopefully they’ll update the app and then it will work flawlessly. Anyway just a few points (gonna try make these changes myself using your templates but you might want to do them yourself)

    – Alarm is spelt incorrectly on the News screen – Might be intentional.
    – Phone is duplicated on the News screen as well – Again this may be intentional but I would put something else here.
    - I can’t work with the UCCW files you uploaded, I usually get UZIP files and they work fine but this is probably my extreme lack of knowledge with such things! If you could upload uzip files for the widgets that would be great.

    What I am intending to do:
    Make a 4th screen similar to the picture screen and add in extra links (e.g. comics, games etc)
    I will then have four sides to my “box”. Hopefully multi picture will be updated to continuous scroll and it will then look awesome!
    I was also thinking of making the dock appear with finger gesture, it will overlay on the screen and I was hoping to have it in the same style as your retro templates (e.g. a pink ribbon with white icons). Again, unfortunately Nova launcher doesn’t support backgrounds for the dock (Apex does but animation isn’t as smooth and it lacks other features of Nova) but I hope you get the idea.
    Oh yeah I also think circle launcher could work well with the buttons if done correctly (i.e. following same design).

    Okay hope all this made sense, keep up the good work!

    @mikedmike Hello, Your tips and notes are admirable .. in fact, the real purpose of my work is the “inspiration” and certainly with the resources that I uploaded (PSD FILE) you can customize the theme “retro Android” as you like in 1000 and possible ways .. photoshop is a program that places no limits to the imagination ..
    Regarding uccw skin will try to load them again because maybe there was a problem loading ..
    ALLARM .. I do not understand .. maybe it is written wrong? does not matter anyway, the concept does not change you can put any lettering you want .. thank you so much for everything.

  50. Posted 2013/02/16 at 11:24 am | Permalink

    You sir are Amazing…Thanx a Lot.
    I spent some time on this and tweaked it a bit (Hope you don’t mind) and this what I got!

  51. Posted 2013/02/16 at 11:38 am | Permalink


    Yeah i kinda need an extra page too for my comics app, whatapp calendar calculator instagam etc, please share your edited photos, thanks val or creating this homescreen, its really, its just makes me say wow when i check my phone

  52. Posted 2013/02/16 at 6:49 pm | Permalink

    hi, your work it’s just awesome, my question is which Photoshop program do you guys use to edit the psd? can it be done online or do I have to download the program? thanks

  53. Posted 2013/02/16 at 7:38 pm | Permalink

    This is amazing!!!

  54. Posted 2013/02/17 at 5:13 pm | Permalink

    It took me 6+ hours,thank you sir.

  56. Posted 2013/02/18 at 3:39 pm | Permalink

    May I know your icon pack @vallarellas

  57. Posted 2013/02/23 at 1:25 am | Permalink

    Thanks so much for sharing your PSDs! It’s great to see how other designers are laying out their work.

    I noticed you had a layer on top which was the grid layout. How did you generate this? Thanks!

  58. Posted 2013/02/23 at 7:44 am | Permalink

    Thank you! For the grid:
    I needed a precise reference to position all the elements in the right place, so I positioned “Desktop VisualizeR” all 1×1 widget on a screen of my Galaxy Note and then I did a screen shot.
    I had the grids with Photoshop, but so and more “rapid” and precise.
    Thank you for your interest.
