Nova Launcher:As you can see, this theme is pretty straight forward. Nova’s settings are:
- Grid: 4Cx5R
- Width Margin: None
- Height Margin: None
- Transistion: Wipe
Make three pages: two for your UCCW widgets, and one to create your folders on. Creating your folders (if you haven’t already done so) will probably take the longest so knock this out first.
UCCW:The UCCW widgets serve two purposes. They are pretty to look at, and they are one giant hotspot for the most common app in that category. Before you place these widgets, open them up for editing and change the hotspots for what you need. My hotspots are as follows:
- Phone: stock Phone app
- Social: Falcon Pro (Twitter client)
- Internet: Dolphin Browser
- Photo: stock Camera app
- News: NY Times app
- Productivity: Google Keep
- Travel: Google Maps
- Music: This isn’t an app hotspot but an action which automatically starts listening with Soundhound.
Place your 4x1 widgets on your two empty screens.
Back to Nova Launcher:Now, drag your folders onto dots on the right sides and delete the extra page. Long press to bring up the folders menu. Click the icon’s picture and change it to the blank PNG included in the ZIP folder. Here’s what mine looks like open:
The icons will be the same as you set in Nova, and it’s really up to you what works best. I wasn’t looking for something that matched the theme. I chose to use my Lumen Icons at 130% because of the high visibility. I’m including this info because when people think of themes, the first place that their mind goes to is, “what icons should I use?” If you have a set that’s working for you, stick with what you’re already using. Icons are useless if you don’t recognize them, and since these are tucked away all nice and neat, that’s your call.
That's it for this one. Drop a comment if you have any problems, and be sure to check back frequently this weekend.
