Hi everyone.
Hi guys. SoI thought it would be nice to share my fresh posted theme for free here on xda. This version is exactly the equivalent you can find in the playstore (which isn't free).
The theme is called PaperUi and has been made trying to follow the latest Google's guidelines about material design. At the same time, I tried not to stick to tightly to those guiodelines, in an effort to realize something unique, and not just another L theme, there are plenty of them already.
The theme is developed on a dark grey background. All the dividers and separators have been removed in order to give a coherent and consistent look and feel. Shiny-flat colors have been placed in any system application, each one has a different color.
I really hope you like it.

Brilliant work! Hope you add support for XHDPI devices (the Nexus 4 in particular) and Paranoid Android's hover feature. :)

Thx! Thing is only you guys can help make this a even greater theme, through your feedback and ideas I can track down bugs and add features so please consider this when you purchase it
I've noticed that whenever the option to choose an app after clicking a link pops up, there's no definition in what you're choosing. The option still blinks when picking it, but it's not obvious every time. I've also noticed that the software keys aren't the same size in landscape mode. They're smaller.

Great work. I'm liking it mostly.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there's black on black in some places, like Xposed Installer's Download section. Not a big deal.

Also. I think that the button that takes you from Notifications to Quick Settings looks very outdated. It looks like the MSN Messenger icon. I know you don't want to make this another L-clone, but seeing that Messenger-like button turns me off.
