    Hello everyone. Recently I started creating themes. I posted a few pics in the forums and received some interest, so here it is. There are now multiple versions of this. One with all five icons showing (Foppa1), the other with scrolling icons (Foppa2).


    Foppa1 FEATURES:

    Both Foppa1 versions have been updated to support user defined apps on the home screen.

    5 home screen icons
    Hidden today option
    Weather slot (first icon displayed here)
    Homescreen hotspots
    - Space bar -> QuickLaunch or ShortcutMe
    - $ key -> SMS or BBM (opposite of version) -- version 1.5 only
    - Speaker -> Ringer Profiles
    - Time -> Clock
    - Battery meter -> Options
    - Signal meter -> Manage Connections
    Colored meters
    - Battery -- green 80-100%, white 30%-80%, yellow 10%-30%, red 0% to 10%
    - Signal -- green 5 bars, white 3-4 bars, yellow 1-2 bars, red no bars/off


    Foppa1 Custom-Icon Version







    Foppa1 Precision-Icon Version




    Battery pull is recommended.

    I am by no means a theme professional. This one works great on my phone and I wanted to share. Hope it works great for you as well. Let me know if you have any issues or questions and I'll do what I can.


    Foppa1 With Custom Icons -- Version 1.5

    Hidden Today with Weather version: Today/Weather OTA

    Weather (no today) version: Weather OTA

    Today (no weather) version: Today OTA

    Clear (no today, no weather) version: Clear OTA



    Foppa1 with Precision Icons -- Version 1.5

    Hidden Today with Weather version: Today/Weather OTA

    Weather (no today) version: Weather OTA

    Today (no weather) version: Today OTA

    Clear (no today, no weather) version: Clear OTA


    I've also now created a hidden icon version (Foppa2). It's the same layout as the original, but all the bottom doc icons (Messages, SMS, Contacts, Calendar, Browser) are hidden. As you scroll through them, they appear in the icon slot (far left) next to their app name. As you can see in this first screen shot, I've scrolled to Contacts. In the next one, Messages. The icon always appear in the same place, as does the app name. There's a hidden today for Messages and Calendar. With and withing weather slot (1st app). Same homescreen hotlinks as above version.






    Foppa2

    Today with weather slot: Foppa2 Today OTA

    Today with no weather slot: Foppa2 Today NW OTA

    Weather with no today: Foppa2 Weather OTA

    No weather, No today: Foppa2 Clear OTA




    Enjoy!

    I really like the layout of the theme, but have one question. Is there a way to make it so the homescreen icons are user determined and not predefined? I don't know how hard that is to do, as I haven't even begun to try and figure out theme building yet. Thanks in advance for your time.

    Possibly so. However, I had to resize the icons in order to make them fit in the bottom dock. This was easier using predefined apps / icons. I haven't played around with the new theme builder enough to know if I can have the apps be user defined and still have the icons be resized to fit. My first attempt pointed to no, but I haven't revisited. I will at some point. But for now ...

    FYI, looks like it doesn't work on 4.7 for people who may be interested. We just tried to load it on my husband's Tour. It shows up under the applications, but not under themes. Just thought I'd let ya'll know.

    very nice theme! the OTA's for 4.7 are working except the BBM version is pointed to the SMS version. Can you fix this? Also, can you add in transitions?

    Thanks. I fixed the link. Thanks for the heads up. Cutting and pasting error.

    As for the transitions, I haven't looked into that yet. Will at some point.

    But I did just figure out how to add hotkeys. Will be updating all version this afternoon to include QuickLaunch/ShortcutMe spacebar hotkey. Stay tuned.

    Great! Thanks for the update. Now that I have the BBM version for 4.7, I have a few more requests. Can you customize the BBM icon to conicide with the other pre-defined slots? And for the pre-defined BBM and Message slots can you add an alert notification?

    All versions now have the added spacebar hotkey for QuickLaunch / ShortcutMe.

    Before you ask, yes I know the QuickLaunch and Ringer Profiles text is black on a black background. Seems Theme Builder has a font color for menus and a font color for lists, but only one background color for both. So while I can use white for my menu font color, I have to use black for my list font color as email messages are a list. And since the QuickLaunch menu is a list, so it shows up as black on black. I tried changing the menu/list background color to gray, but it just didn't look as good. I haven't found a way around this, so I hope you can live with it (like I do).

    Do you mean change the look/feel, or have it should up top line in the applicaiton screen?

    And for the pre-defined BBM and Message slots can you add an alert notification?
    I have not found a way to do this, but the unread indicators do pop up right above them, so I'm hoping that works well enough.

    I really like your icons and was hoping you could change the look/feel of the BBM icon on the screen to match w/ the 4 other pre-defined icons. Does that make sense?

    Hmmm. Not sure. In doing 8 different versions, it's possible I made a mistake in exporting the 4.7 version of SMS/MMS Today. Just to make sure, I will re-export and repost the OTA in a bit.
