Michal

On Jan 28th, Themer, the one-click homescreen theming app for Android, passed one million Play store downloads.

As we know from the popularity of theming here on XDA, Android personalization has become an art form in its own right as themes require a healthy dose of beauty, intrigue, and creativity. The team over at Themer recently posted a video created by well-known MyColorScreen designer GaRyArTs. The video shows how inspiration can strike at any moment and how there’s a whole creative process that goes into making a theme.

Zooper: The Last Word in Android Widget Customization

Circle-Info-Widget-Color

Circle-Info-Widget-ColorIn the world of ultra-customizable build-your-own Android widgets, there are only a handful of options. UCCW (Ultimate Custom Widget) and Minimalistic Text are probably the most well-known. But the most powerful, the undisputed heavyweight champion of Android, is clearly Zooper.

Zooper is not one widget—it’s pretty much anything you can imagine. When you drag Zooper to your homescreen, an editor opens that lets you choose among some pre-installed templates, a blank slate, or any templates you’ve downloaded from the Google Play Store or saved to your SD card.

Along with the gang at MyColorScreen, we’ve been working on a new (non-root) app for one-click Android theming called Themer (now on Google Play). The themes apply with all wallpapers, icons, widgets, and launcher settings pre-configured. It’s still in closed beta, and the team is constantly adding new features and more themes.
