Miui lock: Reveal LS by h_zee13; Miui status bar: JAMT Amana by ?. Finally got a build of MIUI that seems to like me, and figured out Extended Controls. Check out all the PINS Music Mod thread if you like my framed music widget – I’d like to make more in other colors/styles  Next stop: figuring out MIUI lockscreen design. Download my mod below: you will need to unzip the file to get the apk within for the app. Requests for other styles/colors are welcome :)

I am more than glad to share my work with fellow Android enthusiasts. However, you MUST redirect download links to my blog, and give me credit when previewing my work. You MAY NOT re-post my files for download on your site. You MAY NOT post my files as QR codes for my files on your site. I need traffic to my blog to cover server costs. If I find enough violations, I will stop making my files available.

Windows Phone 7 Theme for Android

The marquis is part of the wallpaper – I used Mutli-Live Wallpapers (free on market) to make different wallpapers for each screen. (I recently switched to Super Wall Lite, also free, to use panoramic wallpapers than span multiple screens: one master image for each setup, and this app also uses less memory). Date, time, weather condition is Minimalistic Text. Weather picture widget is Fancy Widgets. Battery status is Widgetsoid. SMS Unreadcount for mailbox updates.
Minimalistic Text at top. Widgetsoid for battery. Media Button Shortcuts for music controls. Missed It! for updates.
Custom Clock Pro is well worth the $1 on the market, and gives you infinite possibilities for customizing your clock, including using a custom background.
Minimalistic Text on the notepad, with my notes as an invisible shortcut.
These are mostly Widgetsoid toggles for turning on and off all my common used settings, like WiFi, GPS, etc. Droid Stats showed my remaining minutes on my data plan, and can also show sms and data usage stats.
Media Control Shortcuts on the cassette player. I thought the skype tile was very appropo – so glad I found Fring and Nimbuzz since.

Missed It!

Posted by on Jul 5, 2011 in android, cool apps, fave widgets | 0 comments

The Missed It! app currently runs for $0.99 on the Android Market. I’ve used this very reliable app to show concise data on missed calls, sms messages, and emails (Gmail). The same thing can be accomplished by pairing Tasker and Minimalistic Text – unless, of course, the output doesn’t create an error (I will demo my woes on that later).

But the Missed It! app also provides ease of customization to those who are not rooted, and therefore haven’t changed system fonts. There are plenty of options for changing the layout, static tests, text padding, and a whole lot more.  Here are two examples of using this app on two different themed lockscreens:
