Default Make touchwiz less horrible?

So, as we all know, touchwiz is pretty bad. Horrible blue, terrible green, amazingly horrible notification panel, etc. Wanam Xposed helps with this and gives you tons of control over touchwiz and hopefully makes it less ugly. Has anybody used it? What settings did you use, specifically for the notification panel would be nice. I'm having trouble finding a good balance and making the panel less ugly. Thanks.

Nothing much you can do to change it. Minor cosmetic changes maybe, but nothing more.

I have put 8 icons in each row. As you I can't find a good balanced scheme of colours.
Also it's very useful adding applications to multiwindow...

There are now hundreds of millions of happy (and returning) Samsung users content with TouchWiz. The "we all know" are in the very insignificant minority that Samsung doesn't even bother to notice Sales $$ talk .

Why not back things up, try for yourself and report back. That would be useful to those "we all know" lol

You could post what works and what doesn't along with screen shots

I like touchwiz too, I even like the launcher (I must be crazy I know) but if the stock touchwiz launcher allowed to change the icon pack easily, I'd use it daily

Correlation != causation, just because these devices and have touchwiz does not by that data alone mean that touchwiz is what drives those sales.

I personally bought this tablet solely for the screen and form factor.
Thanks are free.

I did not imply that at all...............

The OP was generalising "we all know" as being the majority of users......

I implied that the overwhelming majority are happy with the product as it is "out of the box", that includes TW !! Why on else do they have hundreds of millions of returning customers............... Most people I know are "Average Joe" and are not interested in anything except what is working out of the box. "Average Joes" are who make Samsung the $$.

They have tried various developer devices with "pure" Android, such as SGS4 Google Play Edition (test the market), bottom line is that it just doesn't sell "Average Joe" wants a full featured skinned device, not a skimmed down OS version.

Customizations found on the net and installable from Google Play etc aren't even considered by companies as big as Samsung. They build for the masses, not the minority niche market. That's why we have XDA and such for minority, and that includes myself

Agreed. I guess i don't know how bad TouchWiz really is lol. I like the blues. I like the greens, and i like the functionality the launcher offers. .. also i think Samsung did a great job with TouchWiz on the tab s. Bit of a head scratcher to me why you buy a $500 device with functionality you don't like, and just assuming everyone else feels the same way.
