I think this might make in into a cm build like the launcher mod did.
I'm requesting that you change the color scheme I like the idea of green or light blue on black vs white on black. Maybe a color pickers for the font and background, that would surely be cool

Could anyone give me some black-background examples? I have no idea with that.
If you are experienced with change color/background on-the-fly such as using color picker, I need your help. Aslo, I need some advices about color pattern.

Show me your ideas and we'll have great apps.

Looks good...

Do you think you can add landscape with the VK to it?

It seems like all the devs lack the ability to fix this
