    83xx Christine Bottom Dock OTA 4.5

    Advertisement



    Here is a tribute to my favorite book: Stephen King's "Christine" ! Okay, so the images are actually from the movie, but oh well. This works a lot better if you first put the creepy music in your head!

    Homescreen icons are customizable. I was a little unsure about the Precision icons - they tend to get masked on the Application screen. I was thinking of making a more opaque underlay for the focus icon. I was also thinking of making the menu font a little smaller. I'd be curious about everyone's opinions.

    Plus general feedback of course!

    Screenshots:

    **** EDIT *****

    Added a today version by request. Also changed some of the wallpapers to (IMO) make the theme more readable.

    You might try red icons instead. they would stand out a bit better, . . . and still match the theme

    I'll look into that. Might have to change the focus icon then else it could look TOO red!

    Suggestions always help!

    @Dwaine12: which style do you prefer? I've been thinking about doing a nice icon theme. Maybe not this particular one, but some kind. I haven't seen too many icon themes, but I do like the simplicity.

    What about custom placement so it looked like a flame made out of icons??

    Nice! I'll have to play with that. How do you deal with navigation when the icons are not aligned in a vertical or horizontal pattern? Just pick one?

    When I first started this theme, I was trying to put the icons into a V shape similar to the V that is in the center of the grille. I couldn't make it work the way I wanted with the wallpaper I chose. But maybe I'll try again with a different WP.

    Thank you! I'm looking into making a modified one based on some of the feedback I've received here. e.g., a different arrangement of the home screen icons, etc.

    Peronally I like the today type themes, so if you do tweak it maybe you could do a today theme. Again good job.

    I can try that. What type of today setup do you like? e.g. all calendar, all messages, or both?

    I haven't done a today theme yet, so please be patient with me!

    Thumbs up

    Loving this theme. I am a total Stephen King Freak. Maybe you could come up with a series. (i.e) firestarter, creepshow,the shining, etc,etc.... Very nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

    The today theme that has messages and calendar. Oh and if you did a series my daughter would have a hay day. Her favorite Stephen King movie is The Stand.

    Doing a series ... hmm... interesting idea! Wonder if we should leave Pet Sematary out of the list though?!

    I'll see what I can come up with RE: today theme. Stay tuned...
