If you like a setup, let that person know. If you see a poor setup, offer them advice and criticism. Giving mere numerical ratings does not help much. Not rating others will highly decrease the chance of your setup being rated.
probably going to change the wallpaper soon
Definitely going to stick with this rice for a long time.
keeping it the same, just changed the pape in both ls and hs until I find other two with a similar vibe between them
that one was a 10/10 nothing I would change desu
the folder works perfect so to make the homepage looks clean, not a fan of the pape tho would use some blur
the not covered spaces make it look unfinished
What about my older one?
Reposting from last thread with slight changes because no one rates.
I dig, what is that actually a picture of? I feel like it would be cleaner with a less busy background but if that's your style that's your style.
This is pretty cool, the lack of capitalisation on the time is hurting my autism though.
Clean af, I dig.
I really dig. If I listened to music on my phone I'd ask for the widget. Cdg model a qt.
I'm not sure what I dislike about this but I can't put my finger on it.
Super busy. Not a fan at all.
The clock seems tacked on and I'm not a huge fan of the icons
I like the music widget but it doesn't go with your minimal theme
Nice wall and icons, share?
Try a different font
Too bright for my taste, love the font and pape
Saw you before, really pleasing on the eyes. Well done anon
Same feeling here, I love the feeling that you've created the best possible rice for yourself
Good example of good aesthetic with lots of icons
Going to stick with mine for a while, recs and r8
Finally changed my set up.
Paper doesn't match the icons. You're right to change it.
I like the personality here. You've really made it your own. Maybe you should have the caps on the clock match the caps on the rest of the screen, though.
Oh, now this is good. I love the back bar on the bottom.
hot letter on letter action oh man. change the pape to something that doesn't have characters all over it
The font doesn't look right to me. It doesn't match the straight lines of the rest of the theme.
I love it. What does the white square do?
Check your emails dude, what icons are they? 7/10
Loved it last thread 8/10
I think I also liked your previous one
Post Pape? Like the font, what is it? 6/10
69/10 I love this, What are you using for the lockscreen?
Can you post your lockscreen pape? I like the colour scheme. 7/10
Too black and white, 5/10
Music widget doesn't really go with the theme, But over all 6/10
Love it, 9/10
I like it. 8/10
Maybe if the whole screen was that bright, it'd look better imo, but whatever suits you. 8.5/10
Copy Pasta of >>6366467 in case it reaches 404
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.
7/10, I don't like that wallpaper with those icons
7/10, I feel like it's a bit cluttered
8.5/10, same as above
I honestly prefer the new one
8.5/10, maybe a bit too white
7/10, I find it a bit boring (no offence )
8/10, but the icons will look better further down
7.5/10, delete that music widget please
9/10, it's so consistent
8.5/10 (it's a pity that the softkeys are cut by the black squares)
7.5/10, not a fan of that wall
8.5/10 because NMH, otherwise it would have been a 9 (joking, i like it, but the font in the music widget it's a bit too light with that wall)
7.5/10? What are those icons for?
8/10, put a clock above the mountain
Here is mine, after all this time with the same layout (check out the thing with the beach at sunset in the 2nd official thread on imgur) I decided to make something new and to learn using KLWP a bit. Here it is.
lol which one
>Really nice what music widget is that?9/10
made it with klwp, nice taste in music anon
>I really dig. If I listened to music on my phone I'd ask for the widget. Cdg model a qt.
I don't even use my phone to listen to music that much tho, I like the pic in the box there
>What are you using for the lockscreen?
Clean Lockscreen and Lock screen clock mods xposed modules
I did even more thingies.I think I like this one the most.
got some great advice on the other thread
I like your clock, otherwise not that great
delete the clock shadow
get some square icons with rounded edges to fit the clock and remove the black behind your nav keys in the launcher settings or try updating your launcher and android .
Also get a better font for your clock
I'm basic as fuck..in a bad way
the only good thing is the wallpaper. loose all those widgets. get an icon pack that more suits your pape
Awesome. Looks like something on a commercial
I love that icon pack. Perfect
Awesome. Charge your phone
I like it but I feel like you could do so much more
My old home screen icons and widgets were aranged exactly like that. I dunno if you borrowed the idea from me or if great minds thi I alike. I don't care I love it
One of the best on this thread
Good but a bit too simple maybe
I hate my home screen. Be brutal when criticizing. I really need this shit fixed
my inspiration. 9-10. just not too keen on that clock font.
spiced up mine. r8?
Travel Setup. R8s appreciated.
8. Nice and clean. Hand thing ain't my style but it's a really nice touch.
5. Okay. Kinda boring.
9. Saw you last time. Love it. Not 100% sold on the font though.
8. Sick. Little inconsistent but I dig it.
?. I want to like this but I don't. Dat blur tho.
7. Busy, but done pretty well.
6. Doing pretty good bro. Try get a little more consistency.
Oof. Just... You don't need all those apps. You do need direction. I dunno bro, you should scrap it and work out something fresh. Grab a pen and paper before fucking with your phone. Figure out what you need, then put it in a way that looks good to you. Good on ya for posting, but yeh, lurk moar I guess. What are you using?
Might not have been the best word to use. It's just, there's something off. Maybe it's the font sizes for time and date. Maybe it's the difference in the gaps horizontally and vertically. Maybe it's just the layout of the boxes. I'm not quite sure.
Some of the items look better pixelated than others (square, circle) too. The square shape at the top right doesn't seem to fit that well.
I think it's really great, don't get me wrong, there's just something throwing me off. Hope this helps.
Any crits/advice in return?
Just nova launcher prime, scopics naked icons, and a built in zooper clock
Thanks. Love to keep an eye on the weather. Been messing around with line graphs for a while but they just don't look good. Just finished this, and I'm proud enough. Kinda want to squeeze a more info in... Maybe some forecast icons, but I don't want to make it too crowded. Thoughts?
Just quickly made this setup and want to look for any improvements and ratings
>>6366530 9/10,keep the background. It all looks very neat
>>6366541 8/10 really love the colours on this one
>>6366547 7/10 nice but try changing the box colours
>>6366556 8/10 very nice and neat
>>6366588 8/10 would be nice if you could get the clock on the lockscreen to suit the homescreen
>>6366612 5/10 the background makes everything just look messy
>>6366619 8/10 great use of icons to suit the pape, the clock is a bit weird though
>>6366644 6/10 tone down the darkness on the box background and either change or get rid of the music widget
>>6366663 9/10 really like this, would suggest font change on the clock though
>>6366667 10/10 everything is just put together so nicely and with attention tfw detail. Love pixel themes also
>>6366749 8/10 really love the center, refreshing from most boxes
>>6366857 7/10 I actually quite like this one, a background change might be nice but apart from that I'm a fan
>>6366861 8/10 Nice. Simple. Love it.
>>6366903 9/10 I love how crisp everything is
>>6367393 8/10 at first I thought it looked a bit much but it quickly grew on me
>>6367495 8/10 I love both these themes, nice use of colour and widgets
Did it. Coded in icons. Pain in the fucking ass but think it turned out okay.
Posting the Komp. Toggles for solid/not icon/not, scalable, optional corners, used a lot of globals. Hope someone finds it useful.
Looks better on my screen. Will post another mock some other time. Super subtle change to mine.
I like this.
First of all thanks for the feedback. Regarding your build, I like the uniform text at the bottom of both screens and also the top weather and time widgets which are flat and clean in a good way. I'm assuming the pape on the right is album art, sometimes albums aren't that good as phone papes but that's my only gripe. Pure minimalism not having icons, I like it.
pirated icon pack?
if not then update it, looks like you're missing some icons.
Other than that pretty solid. Personally I'd hide the notification bar at the top(in your launcher settings) and get a nice clock
Otherwise I got a newer version .apk if you want
On my phone, will rate later.
Old photo, icons are much easier to see now. Thoughts?
8/10 for my taste, really good job, everything does well together
7/10 nothing to be said really, decent job
9/10 love the idea behind the red square, just put temperature and bettery into it, also you could get rid of apps on the front page (use gestures instead)
5/10 I just don't get it, there is just too much going on, try more minimalistic approach if you are doing minimalistic stuff
also icons don't match their quality with another
6/10 I like the pape and icons, but there issomething in this clock I don't like
7,5/10 well executed just kinda boring
8,5/10 nice, nothing more to say
6,5/10 nice but nothing impressive
9/10 cool idea and well made
4/10 nothing special, nothing at all and geez you should at least use space in folder name so it will be a blank space
7,5/10 make backgrounds matching amd will be at least 8,5/10
6/10 too much everything
hopefully my webm will upload correctly
First of all you should experiment with clock widget make it look more like icon pack, may be just changing font in it or make it bigger/smaller as you'd like it, put some love in it
then make some "place" for icons, can be box or collored or blurred part of wallpaper
10/10 unique design
4/10 Nice pape, Make your own widgets don't just download the 1st thing you see in the play store
9.6/10 Nice and simple. Like the inverted look. Id get a font to match the icons.
7/10 Too simple, also fix the yellow part of the clock border. If its a battery progress bar put it someplace else so the screen isn't off balance
9.9/10 Awesome, Love how the red pops out. Would be 10 but I don't like Min icon pack in general and the font is weird.
8/10 Too clustered, try splitting your design onto 3 screens
0/10 How hard is it to read, apparently too hard.
Read OP's post "Not rating others will highly decrease the chance of your setup being rated."
9/10 Solid, not my style but good. Try changing fonts. Maybe to a digital font. If you cant change the widget font try KLWP but it might take some time to get used to.
10/10 great looking weather widget thing whatever you got. Nice papes as well.
8/10 Simple, clean, efficient
8.9/10 The hot on cold wallpaper confuses my shit. Id personally get rid of 3 icons and put your in between stuff(74%, 09-35) in a frame
9.8/10 Great looking overall. Id get better fitting weather icons and match the music widget font to the res of your setup. Otherwise rally great . Maybe a bit more life in your wallpaper?
>Had to rewrite everything cause my browser decided to fucking suicide
>Also .PNG was too large posting .JPG instead
clock is ok now, if the circle icon is app drawer get rid of it and set some gestures in nova settings
and about boxes, you can make empty widget and put it in the background or if you have just one page and it won't ruin something you can just edit wallpaper
Gotta give a dude proper commendation. Been watching you craft your homescreen for a few days now. You respond to criticism well and can follow instructions—your homescreen is much sexier too. Bravo, sir!
Switch to military time so that ugly sideways pm goes away.
Is great besides that. Would like to see some different fonts though. Perhaps more Hellenistic looking fonts? Although that might be too cheesy.
damn thanks. ive really taken to customizing home screens. im thinking theres one final step; to get a blurred app box. its been the most difficult so far. so if anybody has steps to do it let me know.
personally i like the pm, it adds a kinda dynamism where not everything is uniform up and down or whatever. i can definitely re consider fonts, i just quickly chose one that looked like it matched my icons. thank you
Still messing around trying to find what works best.
Still new. R8 h8 and give advice pls.
Buttons remind me of Portal
Nice, Like your BG
Love the blur, how did you get the widget like that in the centre?
I like this one a lot
bit too busy for my taste, but it's good
Really like this, expect it to be reblogged on some bitches tumblr no doubt.
like what you've done, i'd personally put the opacity down on your widgets or change the blending mode on it, make it look more like it were on the tv
I tried to listen to advice, but its still poor...maybe I should remove the music widget
looks better. good icon choice. keep the music widget. though you should still have a clock if you dont have a quickbar. maybe move some folders to another page to make space for both
I'm new to this and I was just messing around. Its really hard to find the right one for the wallpaper I really want. But for now advice will be appreciated.
Looking for recommendations on how I can improve. Any suggestions welcome
Fucked around with some icons and made these widgets. What do you think? would appreciate the input, first time ricing. My OP >>6368374 .
what's a good way to hide the top bar but only on the home page?
Hmm, good question. How are your skills with Tasker? I'd assume that'd be the way to go, short of rooting and hacking something together yourself.
Alternatively, I use double swipe down to toggle notification bar with Nova. Hardly use it though (hardly have notification bar visible), just in rare cases with monitoring shitty connectivity issues and the like.
How much does it mean to you?
Hi i just started. Tbh idk if im doing these borders right by putting a rectangle?
Also what website is that where u can pick color schemes? Kinda wanna look at those. Thanks anons
I like this, nice use of colour. I'm not sure on your icons though. They don't really mesh with the purple/pink/grey hue of the wallpaper.
Your icons are very small and difficult to see, either make them bigger or try a white icon pack. I like their placement and the music widget.
Turn off your icon labels and get rid of the page scroller. Pape is nice, but maybe look into that horrible gradient at the top.
Nice wallpaper, but personally I'd hide the carrier using Xposed or something and get a more interesting clock widget. Or make your own in Zooper/Minimalistic text etc.
Cute, maybe look into hiding the carrier. What's that status bar icon? Looks like a contacts icon?
Nice colours, but you're icons looks a little strange. Like they're different sizes or something?
I'd say clean your status bar and get a more colourful wallpaper. Maybe it's because I'm a britfag but your wallpaper scream "using the bus to get home on a rainy day, feeling depressed" vibe kek. Clashes with the colourful icons too.
>black, red, white and grey
Mah nigga. I like this, but your battery widget looks off. Nice music widget though, made in Zooper?
I love my Note 4, but holy hell, finding good wallpapers for it is a nightmare. Tried my best with pic related in PS, I can't see any obvious fuzziness.
Finished the first one I ever made just now. Pretty basic.
this really caught my eye, there's something about it I really like, but i cant put my finger on it.
I got way too excited to see someone had replied to me there. Fuck yes black white red and grey, best color scheme ever.
Ya know, I agree with you, the batter widget is off, fucking fiddly motherfucker to do. Tried to find a minimal battery widget that would work with this look, but i had no luck. Suggestions?
Have been lurking for a while, but first time posting.
I'm a boring fucker who likes to use Minimalistic Text Widget and use words/fancy fonts for my info. Otherwise I just use the status bar. Pic related.
Hide yo status bar on the lockscreen. Hide yo carrier on the lockscreen. Otherwise that's pretty nice. Clock is very vanilla though. What are those icons from?
Dude, put your app drawer in the middle of the icons arranged in a circle or hide it. You've also got two clocks and a very messy status bar.
Can't hide any of that because I'm using stock LG android with all the bloat. Maybe I can get a widget for the clock. Icons are mflats or whatever they're called. Used the template and made my own.
Anyone know much about custom ROMs and launchers working together?
Bought a HTC One M8 a while back and decided I was gunna put a new ROM on it and try make it look real nice.
If I get a new ROM like Skydragon, can I then still use Apex/Nova Launcher like normal?
LG Spirit (h440n). Reading the xda forums right now and apparently it can't be unlocked. Not that I know what this means exactly, but it doesn't seem worth rooting if I can't do everything.
Still using meme borders. If anyone can give some recommendations I'd appreciate it.
Anyone know how to blur the circle on Zooper and get autistic Media Utilities working?
I cba with music widgets anymore, Media Utilities didn't work on KK and it's completely borked on LP. I would literally kill for a cool music widget. I am jelly of the nice ones in this thread. Any Zooper guides I find are woefully outdated, and I actually found a thread on the XDA general that referred to it as abandonware. Apparently the new kustom widget thing is quite good.
Make sure it looks like this in MU, and that you have Zooper and your media player is added into MU.
In Zooper write #TMU_ARTIST# & #TMU_TRACK#
Dunno if this helps
Mine is fairly minimal customization... Very new to customising android. Would not mind some tips and apps to use.
Only limitation is my phone is not supported by exposed
Lenovo k3 note (I'm not so rich as to buy nice phones)
Pixel icons and font.. it's a two page setup.. let me know if I should change anything.. but I think it looks nice overall.. rate please
size is kinda weird but its my fav wp so far
Before any of you say anything, I got alot of inspiration from the imgur album.
Pretty good, but I recommend a better icon pack, maybe glyphs
Everything goes together great, well done
Really like the theme
You need widgets to make your rice really pop, I recommend Zooper
Literally hurts to look at
Another rice I'm not too sure about
>notice me senpai
Going for the 10 senpai. Help me.
Updated. Glamour shot. Da/wg/s seemed confused with the previous shot being two screens... Actually it's just the one, the second (music) fades in only when media is playing. Added media control text at bottom anyway. Bars at the bottom show cpu usage/storage left/battery.
The weather Komponent I made for KLWP is linked in this post.
Cropped this image from the Vapor wave thread here
It's all done in KLWP.
Bump for visibility. Vote for ACDisplay.
Sorry, using icons (for) now!
Pipette is a nice app. Can pull color codes and schemes from images.
Not bad. Icons seem a little busy.
Nice to see dudes helping. These threads rock apart from the
No rating kids.
I like this.
Nice work, especially for a beginner. Keep it up!
Don't like this at all.
Tips? Image is my local Brazilian jiujitsu logo I copied to a white background. Top and bottom gradients are built into the OS and I can't figure out how to remove them. I have 5 dock pages with my most used apps, the first being clear for aesthetic reasons.
how do i make UCCW things look good bros
I made a clock with battery + date but it looks kind of blurry when I actually put it on the home screen
Is it because of the shadows or something to do with the sizing?
So I've never actually posted in one of these threads before but I've been lurking now and then.
I could call this my first rice, apart fro the shitty things I've tried before.
Myself I don't like how icons are all over the place, and solid coloured backgrounds. But I can see it becoming something one day possibly.
I feel like the font on the "Holotape/Notes/Files" are very different from what everything else is. But hey, I like it otherwise.
shh...it's my first time ricing.
I'd just not listen to /wg/ anymore and only post in /g/ from now on, for you
I've been using this one for a while but I don't really like it that much.
I really like the wallpaper, but don't like the icons and clock. No idea how to improve it though.
My first attempt. Fucking Asus doesn't allow to customize statusbar, and there's no unbuggy ROM's, that's sad.
First time ever doing this cause im on android only since few days.
Got inspired a lot by this thread.
Advices ? tips ? R8 ? Inb4 Rei>Asuka
Will try to do more original homescreen now that I know how to manage all thoses widgets.
Posted old homescreen somehow. Here's with changed icons.
I think what you want is KLWP. Kustom live wallpaper. You can literally make anything with it. Also you can animate shit with it too. Bit its kind of hard to get the hang of.It doesn't burn battery either like other live wallpapers. Uses almost 0
If you're not too interested in a live wallpaper and want to stick to widgets theres also a widget app made by the same dude. KWGT. Basically the same shit but in widget form. Probably. Idk since I haven't used it much but looks to be mostly the same.
If you want to save on battery even more you can just blur one area of the background in photoshop/gimp/paint.net or whatever but then ita there and you cant move it and of you scroll its obviously gonna stay there. But hey, you get more battery if thats your jam
Tl;Dr get KLWP or KWGT
I highly recommend that you straight up uninstall Zooper. It and MU are buggy as hell together and outdated aswell.
Try KLWP(kustom live wallpaper) or KWGT(kustom widget)
Both are pretty much the same but one is a live wallpaper and the other a widget app like Zooper but way better. And you don't need anything else for music widgets to work or anything else actually.
My current one. R8? or don't, so what you want.
Might change it again eventually
I am looking for a good icon set to work with this, and possibly a better font but not sold on that yet.
...I like the wallpaper and the zooper widget, but everything else is up for debate.
Rating from this, since I didn't on that post.
5/10, I'd get a different wallpaper and change the font, maybe spread things out a bit since they're all clustered in the top like half of the screen.
That looks pretty cool, does that background change with each song or are those static???
