Meh, I guess the icons are nice. Everything else is pretty reserved. Doesnt suck though. 6/10

>>43196086
Layout is decent. I like the background, but maybe not in this application. Agree with everyone else that the font is a bit much.
4/10 but +1 for Fatboy Slim

>>43197797
No words, just 10/10.

Mine is something I've been refining for a while. All icons are in a two-page scrolling dock with each acting as a folder. The actual pages cycle between a weather widget and a clock widget (both zooper). I need to get around to manually editing the font for the widgets so that the text aligns properly with the verticals of the bar magnet in the wallpaper. I've tried messing around with splashes of color, but I just keep coming back to good old black and white. Looks good on a white GS4.
>>
>>43197900
>If the icons were monochrome
Yeah I have the same thought, not really happy with my icons either. Do you have a good monochrome icon pack to recommend?
>>
>>43197900
That's actually quite cool.
I feel like the temperature widget isn't at the right angle though.
>>
>>43197922
Try MNML black, Simply/True Black, or Simplex. Just the few I think would work alright. Simplex looks the cleanest to me out of all of them. There are probably others out there if you're willing to look into it.
>>
>>43197983
Amazing, thank you.
>>
>>43197982
The angle itself is fine; the individual characters ("glyphs," technically) just need to be skewed to the left about 9.1 degrees so that the text looks like it's a part of the image. I agree that it is sort of unsettling to look at, but I haven't found a reliable way to edit the font without having to do ass tons of tedious trigonometry.

i hope this thread is more active than the other two

im making a clock widget using zooper and want it to have the same width as the persistent google search bar (nova) but i dont think it can go any wider or it cuts off. is there any way to get around this using zooper/nova settings?
>>
>>43200229
No, unfortunately I don't think there's a way to do that in Zooper. Anything you make with a tool like that is restricted to the boundaries of the widget box itself. Anything larger will get cut off as you already said. That being said, you could use the Google search bar widget instead, which doesn't stretch all the way across the screen. Your other options include some kind of wallpaper witchcraft or learning how to code for Android to make it bend to your will.
>>
>>43200595
i thought of using the google widget search bar but it's still kitkat style. I'm just going to continue with the widget being smaller, oh well
>>
>>43200612
The kitkat one looks the same as the persistent one for Nova, doesn't it? It's just smaller I think.
>>
>>43200651
nah it looks like this
>>
>>43200665
Do you have a widget named "quick search bar" instead of the designated Google one? That one has the style you're looking for. It came pre-installed on my phone, so I'm not sure if it's something Samsung did or what.
>>
>>43200665
Did you Longcross it and disable padding?

not a fan of big screens imo. I'm a religious one handed user which I found verrrry difficult on the g3.

Also g3 stuttered and lagged despite shills saying it didn't. Nova helped but it was still there.

Better is still subjective besides specs. One thing can suit someone better than another. I have nothing against android and I do not think IOS is better. Its just better for me.

Try using the 3 row option. Make some tiles bigger in that mode so you will see more of your background. Also, move colored(nontransparent) tiles just beneath your first view. If you have to have it in the top, make it either transparent with "Transparency Tiles" or group them together in a corner or in next/under each other.

Finally, this is my startscreen. Any suggestions?
>>
>>43219834
Well.. at least you ordered it nice enough but I wouldn't use that background. If you really want to use that background then I would suggest to blur/darken it a little because your tile icons kind of fade away. In other words, your background is too distracting. Use the app "Blur" from Rudy Huyn to obviously blur your background.

This one's a really old screenshot of my homescreen. Still like this to this day... generic as fuck.

I want to like it, but it just kinda feels off. The camera icons background is strange too, it's so bright compared to the others. And why an app drawer icon? You're better than that anon.

I'll give it a tentative 7/10 for now.

Pretty fucking cool, get a higher res version of your background though, unless that's just 4chan. 9/10

>>43224664
It's so bleak. Backgrounds should be fun or cool or entertaining, yours makes me want to kill myself. And why an app drawer?

>windows phone
Well, you tried.

>>43225900
Too many icons, icons don't go with the wallpaper, app drawer icon, has a status bar. 5/10

>>43227449
Again windows phone. I guess it's nice with the classic pic. 6/10

>>43231028
App drawer and status bar/10

>>43231073
no, just look at /g/'s ricing thread.

>>43231103
Well, it's different. Don't really dig the color scheme. Also, if that circle is going to be on your phone, it should extend to the next page too, not just have a random curved line for through the music widget. 7/10

>>43231324
bigger than ridley/10

>>43232288
>app drawer
With just one side widget on dashclock it looks weird. Also, the way you spread the icons makes it look like its going to fall over or something. 6/10

>>43232350
It works though. I actually like it, it's not trying to be more than its supposed to be. 8/10
>>
first time doing this

What was I thinking?

>>43233338
Wow, I was never curious as to what the gayest phone ever was, and you just had to show it to me.

You little faggot you.
>>
I can't decide on a background so I don't know
I was thinking something patterned as flat as opposed to nature
>>
>>43233952
Get rid of the BotnetBar and you're good
What's the iconset btw?

>>43233338
pls get out :(

>>43235379
pretty bland but you're not lost yet
start hanging around on /wg/ to get inspiration

>>43231324
Did your parents design this one for you?
>>
>>43235952
I mean, the iconset with the landscape backgrounds
>>
So there's square patterns, putting icons on the dock, and hexagonal patterns for icons. What other ways of having icons on your screen are there that aren't terrible?

Still looking for how to hide the nav bar on the homescreen.

Not him, but it's the tiny white icon pack.
Not sure where he got the landscapes but he could have hand made that part.
