    Awesome job combining aesthetics and functionality.
    Sometimes i think people's goals when customizing their android is to make it 1) gorgeous and 2) incomprehensibly useless.


    Question: how did you get all the widgets to show the same partially transparent background?, is it part of the wallpaper?
    thanks.
    Thanks! Actually each of the white translucent backgrounds are widgets themselves. Essentially I just created multiple UCCW 4x1 widgets, each set with a white background @ 50% transparency, and then overlapped all the other widgets on top of each. Works better I think than setting them on the wallpaper itself given that I use other widgets on other screens which wouldn't look good with it. My wallpaper also rotates every hour using an app called Wallpaper Changer.

    Anybody know how to get the exact clock/weather widget from sense 4 so I can use it on Nova Launcher. When I had my thunderbolt there were apks I could install that worked.

    I tried beautiful widgets and hd widgets but they don't look as good.

    I'm surprised you can't find one in Beautiful Widgets -- there's only like a bazillion choices between the 'Standard Skins' and 'Featured Skins' options for BW.

    Have you looked at Fancy Widgets yet? Fairly Sense-like. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...51bGwsMSwyLDNd

    There were a couple APK's I remember floating around and one was at XDA but that one has stopped working and the other I don't remember where is was. Beautiful and HD are probably the top two so you might not find anything better

    I know what you mean. I've used Beautiful Widgets for years but this is my first Sense phone with the real thing. And there's just something about that Sense clock widget that noone has nailed yet. The flipping motion for one thing is cool.

    Those are just the default control widgets that come with Sense 4+.
    I like them, but it's kinda weird that they have WiFi and AutoSync toggle in both.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to make the wallpaper scroll like on the Galaxy Nexus. I hate that it doesn't scroll.

    Like as you swipe from screen to screen? If so Nova Launcher does that.

    Larry, is that HD weather widget? I emailed the dev about the misaligned backgrounds. A fix is coming.

    Haven't really messed with the home screen yet. I will eventually tweak it to my liking.
