3. I don't see the need to keep MRU layout there. It would be better if it is replaced by task/appointment plugin such as Pocket Informant.

Thank you, RoboDad. Now you know, your fans are getting demanding.

I second all of that I would love to see the theme you just described!!!!

Can someone make this compatible for the new version? and add the forth addon page to it? Thank you



It was based on this theme by lepsyfou and the only thing that was changed was the background

I disagree with #1 and #2. The tab buttons and the big battery and signal icons are aesthetically pleasing, as particularly evident in the themes from kulet78 and RoboDad. If I wanted lots of small icons and a cluttered look, I'd stick with the default WM today page.

And personally, I've grown to like the MRU page in kulet's layout. Swipe one way and I have my frequently used programs. Swipe the other way, and I have the full menu page. But because it basically comes down to one gesture versus two gestures to get to any program I have, I don't feel strongly about MRU one way or the other. That being said, there's already a calendar page (nice move to enhance the look of the home page), and I haven't seen anyone successfully incorporate pocket informant (or PocketBreeze...).

Calm
Good morning,

Enlight of the new 2.1 version, I have created a theme that will include the voicemail icon. If you may have noticed in my previous themes, I don't use the "small" data connection icons so this theme would not have it also. In my future themes I may include it but we'll see. For now, here's my first 2.1 version theme I call "Calm".

Note: I have grouped tabs into 3 different MAIN (bottom icons) sections:

Programs Section
> Launcher
> MRU

Clock Section
> Now
> Calender

Contacts Section
> 3 pages of contact pages

Gesture is limited to pages within each MAIN section since I grouped everything using xml code (used subforms within subforms). To go to a MAIN section, simply tap the related bottom icon. Each page within MAIN section will have an indicator at the bottom showing which page is currently displayed. Lastly, which ever page you're in before going to a different MAIN section, going back to previous MAIN section will show last page selected. For example, you're in Programs > MRU, then you tapped on Clock, when you tap on Programs again, it will display MRU screen not Launcher screen which is the first page.

I apologize for the lenghty intro, I figured this will answer a few questions before they're asked.

As always, this includes today tsk and S2U2 wallpapers (non-animated). It's also support landscape mode.

Outstanding! The design is getting more and more innovative. Just as I'm getting used to one theme, a new, improved one comes along. Now I just have to make more friends to fill up three pages of contacts.

Kulet,

Which tab is listed as Tab1? I use the Spb watcher to automatically return me to the Now screen whenever my Today screen comes up, but on these themes with the calender Now screen listed as 1 and the time Now screen listed as 3, I'm brought to the wrong now screen (calender instead of time).

Thanks,

Adam

Kulet78!!!!! Your work just gets better and better!!! I've been waiting for a good theme based on 2.1 before downloading, and I know have a worthy replacement of your latest Blue Ray.

Question: The small dots that represent the subform, is that part of the background graphic? Before Blue Ray I was using the Russian theme with text buttons - and I found that the contact pages with names (VIP, Friends, Work) was very handy. Can those dots be text?

Oh yeah... And a 10th icon for something besides games??

Thanks... And again I am soooo impressed.

This is nearly what I am dying to get. It will be perfect if the forth page integration of pocket informant. And the Now page is integrated with PocketAlarm.

Thank you Ijinsane.
