What this thread is about.
You attach the .apk that needs the widget transparent. Someone that knows how to make it transparent will take time out of their day to help. You can show your appreciation by pushing "Thanks." This thread is only for widgets and not the whole app.

If you have a request please post the .APK (no spaces in the file name) of the program along with a screen shot of the widget if possible to help the modders know what to change without installing it, thanks! To find the .apk to attach go here. Another way look here. To make your own transparent widgets look here.

All credit goes to the people making these widgets transparent.

Below are the recent ones.
Code:
5/12/17 Yahoo! Sports (Install First) 
and THEN INSTALL
THIS ONE
More instructions for Yahoo! Sports
3/15/17 Tunein Player
Thanks to those still viewing this thread!!

In the 2nd post there is a "pending requests" section.

FAQ

I have a paid app. Can I still post it?
Please do not post any paid apps. You may have gotten it free during a promotion but it still costs money. If you do post it and a mod finds out you may receive an infraction.

How do I install this?
Uninstall the app on your phone using titanium backup (free in the market) and then install the .apk file you downloaded from here using a file manager.

How do I post an app that I want transparent here?
To find the .apk to attach look here

I installed it but the widget isn't transparent.
Try changing the theme on your phone as some themes like to override the app so you will always see a background. One other reason is that the widget was only changed for HDPI devices. You may request a MDPI transparent widget.

I want it in a different text color.
For text color requests please keep it to black and/or white.

Why do requests take so long?
There is no team working on these everyday. The people doing these are just like you and me and take time out of their day to help. Some take minutes to do and some take hours to do. In the end some may be impossible to do. Give us time and eventually someone may get to yours. Thanks for your patience.

I posted and my post was ignored.
I read every post and will put requests with the .apk file attached in the 2nd post. If you just post a name or a link to the market I may not put that request in the 2nd post. If I did the requests would be 50+ and never ending as not everyone uses the same apps as you and they don't want to download it. Also, sometimes everyone reading will not know the answer and won't reply. Thanks for understanding.

I want to help you make widgets transparent.
Look in the second post. Thanks!

You think you could do a tranparent RamDroid ?
I couldn't attach the .apk, but I uploaded it to RapidShare.
TIA - huggs
