Ready for something amazing? Check out Clear Line Zooper Theme. Of course, time, date, battery, missed notifications, and app shortcuts are all here, but what really makes this stand out is the unique weather widget. In all, there are 8 widgets, with a promise of more to come. Clear Lines requires Zooper Widget Pro, and has been made to be used with Nova Launcher, however most other launchers should be supported as well, with perhaps some minor tinkering. Hotspots are all customizable, and an orange theme is included, though you can easily change the accent colors within Zooper Pro. The developer also kindly provides a free download linkÂ in the app description section for all of the wallpapers featured in his Google Play Store images. Clear Lines is available for $1.99.
Since I know we’re all dying to know when Google will announce Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5, I thought it would be kind of me to provide you with some temporary relief. Based on leaked images of 4.4 that surfaced some weeks ago, ExDialer Android 4.4 KitKat scratches the itch we all have for a new version of Android. Â The developer has been quick to squash any bugs, and is promising updates if/when further leaks/announcements result in a change of the design. ExDialer is, of course, needed for this theme, and the 4.4 KitKat theme is $1.99 on the Play Store.
Our two widgets this week are Glass Widgets ICS and NotiCloud for UCCW. Glass Widgets ICS has widgets for weather and time, calender, and RSS feeds, and a final option which combines all three. The paid version, which is available for $.99, enables the ability to change the background and text color and transparency. NotiCloud gives you a friendly little mascot for your homescreen. 3 different widget styles (Time and date with battery, weather, and missed notifications) each have 4 different styles, plus text color, time/date format, and hotspots can be edited. NotiCloud is free on the Play Store, so you’re just a click away from a happy smile greeting you with your missed calls or weather when you unlock your phone.
Diddly is adorable, whimsical, and very well done. It features over 800 icons that Â imitate colorful doodles on scraps of paper. 17 wallpapers were made from scratch to match the theme of the icons. There are 40 icon backs for those apps not yet in the list of those with icons available. The app itself is very user friendly, with a newly added dashboard for applying the icons, setting a wallpaper, and requesting new icons. The icon pack is $1.49, and the dev also offers 12 matching widgets as a separate free download.
Finally, we have Blitz. While their logo may strike you as being very similar to that of Windows, there’s nothing ‘Metro’ about this icon pack. The free version features over 50 icons, while the pro ($.99 on the Play Store) sits at 166. The are many apps that offer more than one option for icons, as well. Currently, Blitz is not compatible with Go Launcher, but both Apex and Nova have been confirmed as working fine.
