sorry if this is old news... i did a search and didn't find anything...

anyways,

Up until now i had been bouncing around using different combinations of themes, wallpapers, icons, etc, but i LOVE this one, and i don't see it getting replaced anytime soon. All of the icons are translucent and very minimalistic, which i love. This makes it easier to show off a cool wallpaper, and generally "clean up" a busy homescreen if you have a lot of apps on it. Because the icons are whit-ish, i find works best with darker wallpapers.

Big thumbs up to Matt "Target" Davis!





**EDIT**
due to requests, here is the wallpaper i used for this screenshot. All i did was crop off part of an album cover from one of my favorite bands Porcupine Tree. Check them out!

I cropped it from an album cover by Porcupine Tree. If i had copy&paste on this darn phone i would post it here... I will when i get home.

I did also post it along with many other album-art wallpapers in the main wallpaper thread in the wallpapers section.

in my everlasting attempt to clean up my home screen, i finally decided to just hide all of the icons except for the dock and just use the sunburst to access my other apps. Who knows, maybe i'll hide the dock too...





**EDIT**
well, here i go... i'm gonna try this for a few days. The theme was cool, but it led me down a path where i won't be needing themes anymore.

Goin well so far... Although i did have a bit of a scare today. I was messing around in customizer, and when i exited, the sunbeam did not appear. After staring at the screen for a couple of seconds in hope, it reappared.

Otherwise i like it. Combined with the taskbar notifier, i have all i really need on the springboard.

ok, so i decided to give in and just put the phone icon on the springboard. For some reason i like at least one there... if only to give people a hint. And if i do need to dial someone in a hurry, i won't have to fumble around with the sunbeam. Everything else i'm ok with fumbling. Although, i have considered adding one of the 3p app launcher icons... idunno... we'll see.

changed my wallpaper too...

Yeah acosmichippo - I posted this in the "post pics of your mods" thread and Gametroll, aka Matt Davis stopped in there to say thanks. I love plainjaindim...but I found one to replace it... BlackJainDim! :laugh2:

Check it out...


Hey acosmichippo - how did you hide the dock under the dock icons? I saw your Scream theme before and love how clean it looks without a dock. Let me know yo.

love the Theme great work. One request though. Can we get an iswitcher icon? It stands out like a sore thumb with all the other icons so transparent.
