    So far the theme looks great! One bug so far. When turning the phone to landscape on the main screen, the format messes up.

    Very nice job for your first theme - seen experienced builders do poorer work than this! Well done.

    Comments:
    -I like the small file size. Downloads fast, runs fast.
    -Well done on the weather slot. Most don't manage to get dedicated text line for that. I appreciate it because my weather app of choice doesn't update its icon - just the text.
    -I think landscape mode works fine. Does change to a distorted view of the default wallpaper. Perhaps worth choosing default wallpaper that looks good in landscape? Most users will likely change the wallpaper anyhow.
    -I'd suggest a less overwhelming selector for the icons on the home screen. That thing is big and blue.
    -Also, the clock isn't in the navigation pattern so if that is the last thing selected, you are kind of stuck with a big blue rectangle on the time.
    -I love having Today on the home screen. If I was making the theme, it would just be the calendar as the messages is a bit of waste of time (to me) as it only shows new, unread messages.
    -I think the banner could be tightened up - looks like a lot of blank space although I haven't checked what happens with every notification icon on.

    A few of my thoughts but it is your theme, your style, your way of doing stuff.

    Thanks for putting it out there free for us to try. I am enjoying it overall.

    Hey kfroese, thanks for your comments. I will fix those changes. Regarding the big blue icon on the home screen, I did that on purpose because its easier for me to turn on blue tooth while driving =)

    I will create a different version later tonight. I will replace hidden today for the calendar. How many slots do you want for the calendar?

    Also what do you mean by the banner could be tightened up??

    Thanks

    Are the icons on the homescreen hidable?
    In my opinion don't change the today, I like having the messeges and text as well. If I could have the whatsapp messeges on the today then it was great.
    Only my opinion

    i think that may be defendant on the app, not the theme, but I may be wrong.

    great theme!
    one thing that bugs me is the different colour "bottom bar" when Im replying sms.....seems like when its not onsceen keypad and sending a message arent available its "greyed out"....maybe keep it all the same?

    for the weather slot, right now its partially cut off..would you be able to make the text in 2 lines, rather than a one line?


    thx

    I like the big area for a connections hot spot, just not the large blue highlight!

    I like at least 5 slots for the calendar but will take as many as I can get.

    I though there seemed to be a bit of space between the various icons/notifications in the banner and that if things were grouped a bit tighter, the banner would be smaller. But stylistic.

    Good luck pleasing everyone!
