9.5/10 I really like this one!
The green bar is battery
el em ay oh
need to change my clock
I don't know how to get rid of the notifications bar at the top. This is my first smartphone, so I'm new to this. LG G4, I should also mention my phone case is red/black.
Jesus, KLWP is a mess. I wish there were folders or something for keeping complex themes in check.
by the way pro tip, if you're having trouble making small circles use a square with fully rounded corners, it renders them different.
effay/10 I like it.
innovative as fuck 10/10
not my style but I can respect how well put together it is 7/10
nice, and not messy for first smartphone that's impressive.
oh look it's me.
I'd like to add that my theme is in no way finished
join #homescreen on kik
Just got a nexus 6 so still setting it up, no idea where to go from here though.
Not figging the wallpaper, thinking of making it grayscale or just changing it
All right, it's been a while /wg/. Looking for suggestions (especially icon packs to use).
That's actually really nice. I might just steal it for a bit...
Pretty good for a first time. If you're looking to hide the notifications bar at the top, there is an option in Nova settings (or whatever launcher you're using) to hide it.
To be honest, what I would do is change the color scheme of the icons so that they match the rest of the theme (or just use another icon pack).
My one gripe with this is that it looks too boring because there are no widgets. But if you don't need them then that's fine too.
I would also think about making a better clock in Zooper or KLWP, with other fonts and crap. I don't think it goes well with the icon placement (that resembles the banner style, in my opinion).
Looks pretty good, but I HATE that font (then again I just hate Walkway though). There are better fonts out there that suit your rice better.
Looks nice, and seems functional, too. Your font choices are questionable, though. They are all different, but they don't seem to complement each other (like that goddamn artist tab using walkway).
Good first attempt. Just change the font of the clock and the app drawer icon to match and you're good.
This is perhaps one of the few times I have seen a lockscreen rice in any of these threads, and I've been in most of them (from thread #1). And it looks pretty good too. Nice job.
Did you make that music player widget by yourself? If you did, then maybe lower the transparency of the box.
Should I change the wallpaper colour? Rate please
Retro. I like what you're going for, the wallpaper color is good but I don't think the app colors are great. You could change the font, looks a bit too cramped
Vintage. Nice icon pack and clock, problem is nothing goes well together. Try a different and less busy wallpaper
Intelligent. Pretty good stock like setup. I like it
Wholesome. Not much to rate to be honest, your clock is well made but there's nothing else to see, also the wallpaper isn't that great
Refreshing. Get rid of the music widget overlay
Mystical. I like the balance between the two subjects of the image. I'd look for a more fitting icon pack and get a proper app drawer icon if you don't want it removed
Functional. Get a better font, i like the blurring of the wallpaper and the red theme
Barren. Perfect blend of minimalism and art
Synergetic, way too many icons but it's acceptable.
Potential. Keep working on it anon
What do you guys think of this? First time ricing.
Just found out that there was a new thread. Hopefully these quotes work?
Thanks man. I actually added a little more to it since then. I agree, the bottom was pretty boring.
Why are you showing your (unriced) lockscreen?
Your probably the same person as >>6361412. I don't like your homescreen. The black bar in the center is jarring, too skinny to hold anything aside from app icons (but you squeezed a clock in there) and doesn't go with the wallpaper at all. Keep trying though, you'll get there eventually.
I really like this, its very cool. You have plans for the bottom half?
Monochromatic/10. Not my slice of pie.
I mean, its not bad.... Just very basic and imo, hardly considered riced.
Then why post it if it's not riced? This is a ricing thread
Those who ask shall receive. First of your wallpaper isn't helping if you like light colored text. The top and bottom portions are whiteish so you won't be able to put anything there. Find another pape, move some things around to where you think they look good, and then come back for some more advice
Icon colors are close, but don't quite match the pape in my opinion.
Definer looking better. Still holding my opinion about the search bar though
>That middle part is kinda empty isn't it?
Dyou have anything to put in the middle there?
Still cannot be arsed to finish this, so still my current homescreen
It looks nice but doesn't seem very usable unless you have everything set on gestures
Somehow reminds me of GTA V activity selection menu mixed with windows phone, while it looks unfinished it's nice to see something new kudos
These were pretty much the only ones I haven't seen in a previous thread
Taking suggestions, since this is a WIP.
>mfw I also dig Chevelle
I like this one better than the one from you (presuming) that got featured and the ones you kept posting. 9/10, really sweet.
9,5/10, color palette is perfect, but I don't like the cluster of info on corner (not that you should get rid of it if you really need it).
The font of the music widget don't fit with the ones for your little menu, and the pape is too bland to me. Next time, r8 2b r8d.
Too heavy on colors, unless this is what you wanted to achieve.
Zooper rectangles, icons are called 8bit on google play (paid)
Oh yes, I would surprised that one made it to the inso. Most of the time I just sit down and try to make a convenient rice that works for me and is aesthetically pleasing. If you're still >>6361936 I like the like accent you have and the border you've created for clover. The wallpaper is well meshed and isn't intrusive, to me it feels a bit lacking in functionality. Maybe add a music or calendar widget it that's your thing but I live your rice
I've seen you before and this is looking better than ever. I really can't wait to see how the finished product looks, keep up the good work
nothing special. but looks comfortable for me.
suggestions for clock/music widgets for the top?
It's a WIP. Any feedback is appreciated. I'm still learning how to create widgets.
Good thing you got hold already of scalable objects and mediautilities. You could find a way to work out how to stop the overlap of both rectangles on time down there, on the music widget.
It moves as the music progresses. I could keep it solid but I don't think it looks better.
Very comfy. Love the wallpaper. I'm not a huge fan of both the search bar? And the app drawer. I would either go with one or the other, or gesture the app drawer and put the bar on another page
Everything goes extremely well together. I enjoy the drop shadows on your gray boxes, that's what I need. Only thing I can suggest is maybe a TINY bit of transparency on your gray boxes?
Very simple and elegant. Feels sort of empty however. Like stock ish. I know you created it it just seems a little TOO uniform
I have a Zooper question for anyone that is willing to help me out. I'm making my clock widget and I'm using "#C0SRh#h#C0SRm#m" to tell me how long until my next event, and I've got an advanced parameter in place so that the text is offset if it's happening more than 8 hours from now.
My issue is that not only are #...Rh# and #...Rm# hours /minutes to my next event it also shows hours/minutes from an event. So when using C0, it will count down the hours/minutes til my next event but once the event has already started, it will continue to count the hours/minutes from.the start of the event, because while the event is going on it is still considered "C0".
My question is, is there an advanced parameter I can put in place to offset the text once the event has started?
Hopefully that was explained coherently enough
First time posting, and still kinda new to the whole thing. What do you guys think?
Why not just use one screen? Idk it's okay I guess just not my thing
Pretty cool, I like glyphs. Maybe change the clock widget
What's that thing on the left? I'm not a fan but I can't figure why, try smaller icons.
Boring, maybe smaller icons.
I like your calendar widget and icon pack man.
Not a fan. Maybe change icon pack?
Here's my problem. I can't root right now b/c if I fuck the warranty and my phone takes a shit I'm out of pocket for a new one. Haven't found a decent guide to get root on my note4 that hasn't had people complaining about boot loops and other such problems. I'm doing my best to tidy up my homescreen without it but I can't get rid of the system bar on my home screen and I'm not going to buy an app if it turns out to not work. Anyway, it's close to where I want it to be, if I could just get rid of the system bar and make my apps button invisible I could build a widget to fit inside the circle for the time/date etc. the way I want it to look, with the system bar it's pointless as the information is displayed on that ugly thing.
You don't need to root your phone to get rid of notification bar, just get a proper launcher that do it. You can always customize your icons from your PC (will require a certain knowledge of image editing though). I'm pretty sure KLWP will be able to make you a clock the way you want, given you know how to program it.
Adrift is a nice guy; I'm pretty sure if you go on IRC and ask for help, he'd gladly do it within time.
Rate me please!
Posted my screen before, got decent advice, shopped the pape and did everything on zooper, this is the result. hope some of you guys like it.
I hate to not rate but does anybody have the entire icon pack?
update, working on an ncmpcpp-esqe music widget
basically threw ncmpcpp out the window, should I keep the album art?
I like it. It's original and cool but that circle seems a bit out of place. Also don't listen to me I'm new to this
Cool. Asymmetrical but cool. Not much of a fan to be honest. Also don't listen to my opinions or criticism. I'm a bit new to this
I like this a lot. Never feel pressured to change something you like based on others' opinions. It looks just as good as before
Love it. Everything matches. Its simple
I like it, my man
Judge as hard as you want on mine. I'm changing it today and I could use some tips. The widgets may look a bit off cause I had to make them to match the icons. Also can anybody help me with >>6362742 ?
First of all, I'm >>6362741
Sure, if you need a bigger resolution I can post the original art.
Sorry, I'm not really good with ratings. But I'll do my best, and hope some people rate mine.
Really like this, looks original, clear and fresh.
I don't have anything to criticize here. Love it man.
7/10 because it's nothing I've never seen before, but it's personal enough.
I'm personally tired of seeing white outlines icon packs, but I like it anyway. 8/10
Would recommend removing the status bar, and make something like I did with Zooper for the apps.
Hotline is one of my fave games, and that art is really, really good. 9/10
Hope that pleases you guys.
I'm late I know
That image looks great
Would invert the blur, nice music widget
Loving the colors and font what did u use to make it?
10/10 perfect choice of icons
Wait is this the same, not a fan of the pape but again the icons :)
Would change the fonts at the top, also, pape?
Figured my shit out, total revamp and figured out how to make invisible icons on my bottom bar which is perfect.
I want to rate but I think I'm too new at this to have any opinion worth voicing.
My current iOS 9.0.2 iPad setup, first /wg/ post.
How does my iOS setup compare to Android master race?
Oh and my ratings sorry
Interesting style and wp choice I like the symmetry of your setup a lot
Like the dark brooding theme suits the sleek text nice centred widgets
Basic yeah minimal yeah, not anything special sorry cool though
Investing wallpaper not sure about it, icons are on point though, resembles my windows phone in a way, good
Anything to add/remove? Looking for a better icon pack.
Reposting to get some rates.
I didn't see this design for a few threads now, I like it besides I don't like color scheme so much. 8/10
I like it a lot. But maybe the player needs the "quicklaunch" font to get more in place.
I think it is a solid 10/10. No flaws, good fitted all the elements.
The same but different, love it. 9/10
I prefer >>6362408 over >>6362449 I think it fits more. 8/10 anyway.
Every fucking time I see you I got fucked up. I know it is KLWP but even with that I think is brilliant. And you say is not ended? Keep working mate, because is fucking awesome.
Good work, I like how do you choose the colours. MAYBE, can look cluttered, but not always. 9/10
I think the font of >>6361629 fits more than >>6361690 but I guess that's in personal likes. Anyway 8/10 because is perfectly fit.
I like this design. Is it comfy to use? 9/10 for me.
Good as always, 10/10.
Unbricked my Z1 and installed CM. First (android) rice.
Not my orginal work.. got inspired..but made some tweaks and changes... rate please
7/10 I feel like all the text and date/time widgets make the screen look a bit cluttered. However, I still kind of like it and if it works for you, cool.
Here's mine that I just made. Rate pls!
>someone gets me
Feels good man. Here's my lockscreen that accompanies the home, if I swipe right it's like I shot the splicer... kinda nerdy but I like it.
What do you think ? Pretty basic, but I like it.
Phone is Lg G3.
Very good for a beginner but there is still room for improvement
Nice and simple. I like it
Nice and neat. Some people probably think you have too many icons
I like it but the screen feels so empty
I made a widget on the buzz widget maker but it won't show album art. Anybody on buzz know anything?
Made some changes what do y'all think?
Here's my homescreen. I can't figure out how to make the little weather images in zooper like on the stock widgets, but that's what I have so far.
9/10. Fantastic widget setup, but maybe a cleaner pape to fit it.
really great rice considering it's an iphone. All the icon packs I saw on cydia when I jailbroke my ipod looked like garbage.
Really digging the linux look.
Get nova prime and an icon pack and it'll do wonders for you.
Everyone uses glyphs or glyphys. I personally use candycons because of the simplicity you get with it.
Advice? Running 6.0 with action launcher, whiticons, minimal uccw clock
first legitimate smart phone, immediately knew i had to fix it. r8/h8? its my first time attempting to rice so suggestions would b nice
What icon pack is that? I really like that outline style.
What icon pack would you guys put with this pape, i feel like the one i use right now (lucid rounds) doesn't quite fit
Not bad. Have you tried Zooper or KLWP? Might help facilitate some more content.
Outrageous file structure/10, I like it with the art, maybe try adding a border? Not sure
That is a nice looking weather graphic
First time posting here, any suggestions on how to improve this? Based off my Arch rice, for consistency
Replaced with a solid grey, doesn't look half bad now. Thanks!
anyone wanna r8 my current setup?
First rice in a while, wouldn't mind some feedback.
If those were your previous builds you've made major improvements. This build is crazy good, I love the blurred widget and how the clock isn't fading into the wallpaper. Can you teach me how you made that blurred/transparent (I'm assuming) zooper widget
Here's the wallpaper.
Search "AutobotTesla" on DeviantArt for his gallery if you want more of 'em, he's done hundred's of Pokemon wallpapers.
i like it simple and vanilla like
My first try, any suggestions?
A bit inspired
the google bar feels a little TOO big tbh. possible fix suggestions?
What do you guys use for RSS?
The paper fits nicely but overall the screen isn't that interesting. I would edit out some text on the cover and replace it with widgets displaying information.
Google bar needs to be dumped, bottom icons don't fit the theme at all. Too many icons in general for the wallpaper.
Google bar, icon layout is weird, nice widget though. I would make the widget larger and move it to the middle upper third of the screen, and move the icons on the side.
I'd remove status bar and google. If you're using Nova you could make google a gesture or use a "hot word." Choose one icon pack.
I LOVE your wall. Never thought of using a cover like that before. I'd remove the authors and Dark Horse logo to make it look less cluttered. Just an idea, but unless you have a particular affinity for The Last Of Us, you could remove that as well and pop American Dreams up and make the text bigger. Might look cool.
You got some styyyyyyyle
Incredible widget and paper. Where's it from? Dat blur.
New icon pack and font. Feedback and thoughts?
fixed? (hopefully, but i like it). just had to mess with it for a little while. kinda want to keep the bar though, just easier for me personally
Better but does the icon pack you're using include an icon for the app drawer? It doesn't match the rest and sticks out. Also I'd disable the page indicators, they're just not necessary unless you like them or you have ten pages. Keep the bar if you prefer, at least it doesn't have the shitty new logo on it.
just finished this one. tell me what you think.
third times the charm. great tips anon! so much help, thanks. it does look better. it did have an appdrawer icon. im loving the look. so im not the only one who thinks the new logo is ugly af.
This post actually have me nostalgia to when I started ricing. Not bad, if get rid of the search bar and the status bar. Also classical papes are awesome and can be made even better with good widget and shortcut placement!
ok guys, first time at this. I need a good wallpaper. And a clock widget as well. Feel free to tell me where I can improve.
maybe you should make the widget a bit bigger, plus the letters are too close to each other
not bad, just make the pape either darker or add contrast
pretty good, just get rid of the search bar
download zooper widget, remove the status bar and the page indicator, and please PLEASE remove 9gag
>widgets displaying information
Like what? What information actually needs to be displayed?
I probably won't remove anything from the wall mostly because it keeps it looking full without being too much. I think that removing it would take away too much from it making it feel a little too empty since there is already something in every corner.
Dobar ukus u muzici, definitivno.
Lovin' the rick'n'morty theme.
Now this requires some imagination, love it. One line of apps in the bottom would be perfect imo.
Got a good thing going, whats that clock widget? But god damn it, what is up with the google search bars?! Always a killer for me.
Anything with Rick is awesome, what is that music app?
Classical wallpaper is cool and I think I use the same icon pack but that google bar is a killer for me.
Smooth, clean, very good
Now here is mine. First time with an anroid (had a fucking windows) and I love the possibilites. Please rate! I know there is not much going and I could use some tips about nice kinda minimalistic clock/weather wigets?

It's possible (pic related was old rice on my Lumia 925) but it's just a ton easier on Android.
Hey y'all it is me mister rhymes!
Please rate my minimal pape.
I dont even know if I like it
First: get a better clock, and make it stand out, make it bigger, that one is horrible. or better yet make your own. YouTube tutorials bruh.
Second: whatever launcher you have go into settings and hide the black behind your nav. keys at the bottom. if you cant try updating the launcher and your system. After that hide the top notification bar, also in the launcher settings.
Third: Get a nice wallpaper. This thing hurts when I look at it
Icon pack is good if you want that minimal look. Try messing around with the placement of the icons. Id also move the app drawer button down or make the app drawer a gesture in the launcher settings if you don't want the icon.
Four: Get some widgets or something for zooper or uccw or whatever you have.
Music, Weather, News,.. whatever.
Music is kind of weird in zooper and uccw(im guessing, never used it) so I suggest KLWP but if you're just starting out with ricing It'd be better if you get a hang of zooper/uccw first since they are alot easyer to use from the start.
hello :) can someone rate me? this is my 1st time "ricing" my homescreen. i dont know how to apply icon packs, how to remove some stuff.. and yea.
I've had this layout for a while, and I'd like to change it for something more dynamic. Rating is appreciated.
Xposed: clear lock screen, lockscreen clock mods
My first rice
Rate / Suggestions ?
I would like to set a votation on LockScreen Apps, we can try to decide what is the better way to rice the LockScreen.
For example, I paid after long time of pirating it, for WidgetLocker, and I think it is damn great.
But I heard some people uses something called "ACDisplay" or something like that and some Xposed Framework Modules. Can we discuss this and add it to the OP under "Other Info"? With a pastebin will be great.
anyone know the icon pack for this?
Is there a way I can edit this to fit my screen?
