    Minimax - Ultra-minimalistic OS6 theme with maximal functionality
    Compatible with any 480x360 device (9650/9700/9780) running OS6

    Minimax was initially meant to be a theme for myself and a few friends with two goals: to explore how minimalistic yet functional I could build a theme, and to plan out a large set of hotkeys that could mostly replace QuickLaunch in my daily usage, but could be easily picked up by others as well.

    Since I am quite satisfied with how it turned out, I decided to polish it up for release to the community. This is my first released theme, do enjoy and comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Features:
    • 24 hotkeys (Tried to make them as logical as I could - apps that need to be switched between frequently as one-key hotkeys, others as shift+key combinations. Do try to remember some of them if you can, you might find that you almost never need to even go to the app menu!)
    • Small memory footprint
    • Extremely wallpaper-friendly
    • 6.1 icons
    • FAST - No transitions!
    • Ample space for up to 5 notification icons
    • Pixel-perfect alignment
    • Default wallpaper has hotkey list for ease of initial familiarization
    • Hidden button on home screen which launches 1st app in your app menu, scroll up to Signal meter to launch Manage Connections


    Changelog:
    6.1.0.0:
    Initial version
    6.1.0.1:
    Switched to correct set of 6.1 icons
    Shifted overlapping lock icon
    6.1.1.1
    Weather slot version
    6.1.0.2 & 6.1.1.2
    25% transparent banner background versions
    6.1.0.3 & 6.1.1.3
    Black banner background versions
    6.1.0.4 & 6.1.1.4
    Big clock versions





    Hotkeys:
    $: SMS/MMS
    0: Profiles
    E: Twitter/UberSocial
    I: Pictures
    J: Manage Connections
    K: Clock
    Z: Muzik
    F: Facebook
    G: Google Maps
    R: Opera Mini
    S: Universal Search
    W: WhatsApp
    Shift+A: App World
    Shift+B: BerryBuzz
    Shift+C: Camera
    Shift+D: Dictionary
    Shift+M: MeterBerry
    Shift+N: Voice Notes
    Shift+V: Video Recorder
    Shift+F: FileScout
    Shift+G: Grooveshark
    Shift+R: RepliGo Reader
    Shift+S: Social Feeds
    Shift+W: BerryWeather


    Note:
    Minimax is meant to be used with "Application Shortcuts" enabled. To enable, go to Options -> Display -> Home Screen Preferences and set "Launch by Typing" to "Application Shortcuts".


    Thanks:
    lucky45 & sabisgeek for extracting and resizing 6.1 icons
    other minimalist themers whose work has inspired me in the past, especially dagobah30, Ducaticorse and wu-wei

    Regular Version:

    Minimax 6.1.0.1 OTA

    Weather Slot Version:
    In this version, weather slot corresponds to 1st app in app menu and hidden button corresponds to 2nd app - it's below the weather slot.

    Minimax 6.1.1.1 OTA

    25% Transparent Banner Background Versions:
    I personally prefer the ultra-clean look of having no banner backgrounds at all, but as requested, here they are for use with brighter wallpapers.

    Minimax 6.1.0.2 (Regular)
    Minimax 6.1.1.2 (Weather Slot)

    Black Banner Background Versions:
    Minimax 6.1.0.3 (Regular)
    Minimax 6.1.1.3 (Weather Slot)

    Big Clock Versions:

    Minimax 6.1.0.4 (Regular)
    Minimax 6.1.1.4 (Weather Slot)

    Is this Zen-style? Are the icons hidden? How to show them? Can you pls provide screenshot? Nice work, I think I'm gonna use it. And most of all, thanks for making it free!

    Love the theme, got an issue though:

    Some icons, particularly the messages envelope, clock, browser, and media folder aren't very crisp...edges aren't smooth and the lines inside the mail folder aren't straight.

    Any possibility for a fix?

    Great theme! Been looking for something like this for awhile! Took me a bit to remember which keys are what, but since I use the application shortcuts enabled , it wasnt a stretch... good job and wondering if you'll come out with another theme... Hopefully keeping the same key shortcuts! Thanks for a great job!

    I'll trade you the correct Icons for 480x360 devices and the transparent picture so the connections icon won't turn blue for your knowledge of how to get Universal search in. .
    Please. I want search. Haha.

    As a number of you have pointed up, I screwed up the 6.1 icons a lil. Thanks for pointing that out, not sure why I didn't notice it myself! I've uploaded a fixed version, and also a weather slot version, links are in OP.

    Thank you for all your kind comments, hope you're enjoying this theme as much as I am. [=

    Thanks for this great theme and make it FREE!! I love the new updated icons and it looks awesome. Anyway, if possible, use the 6.1 icon set for calendar as I noticed it still use the default os 6 calendar icon set. But it's not a big deal with me. Thanks
