LolliTab Home Screen & Popup Widgets

In anticipation of the upcoming Lollipop release and to get thru the winter months I have created a Material design inspired Zooper Widget/Popup Widget home screen replacement for the Tab S 10.5 LTE (SM-T805) wich I would like to share with the community.

The widgets can be used on other 2560x1600 screen tablets like the Note Pro or tablets without LTE but then some of the functions won't be available.

This home screen is intended to be used in landscape orientation. The popup widgets also can be used seperatly/standalone.

The home screen is one big Zooper widget (wallpaper is seperate) and a Simple RSS widget for the Latest news headline.

Zooper home screen widget options

● Calendar widget with the 3 upcoming events in detail and events planned for the week for any calendar suppported by Zooper.

● Background of the calendar changes according to the weather conditions.

● Eight shortcuts to the most used programs, icons and shortcuts can be easely changed to your own favourites.

● Google (voice) search button.

● Shortcuts to Phone, Messaging and e-mail with l.e.d. like missed/unread notifications.

● Simple system info widget for battery, alarm, data and wifi status with status icons.

● Simple local weather widget with Plex weather icons, windspeed in Beaufort and accurate wind direction.

● Simple RSS latest news headline widget with images if provided by the feed.

● Simple music player widget with album art for any music player supported by Media Utilities Beta.


All four "simple" widgets have a menu button wich opens a popup widget sliding in from the right with detailed information.

I followed your detailed instructions. The one thing I noticed was in Zooper Widgets when I load a theme it states that Imported Template Corrupted. Also when I select the icon for internet nothing happens.

Any suggestions?

Never had that error message, so I have to guess, is this only with my templates?
Do you use the latest version of Zooper Pro and did you unzip the templates and put them in the correct Zooper templates folder?

The icon for internet is set up for the browser I use wich is Dolphin, if you use another browser, in your app drawer tap and hold the icon of your browser app untill you can swipe it to Edit in the top right corner of the screen (you might have to disable Nova Desktop Lock first) change the icon to the one in the Icon-Wallpaper folder of LolliTab and replace the icon on the homescreen with this one.
