Add a bit of Google Play design to your homescreen with PlayBar UCCW
Want to change your home screen up just a smidge? Here’s a great app we just discovered called PlayBar UCCW. As the title suggests, it is a pack of pre-designed widgets that work within Ultimate Custom Widget (UCCW).
The bundle features access to a handful of the most common apps and settings, including camera, Twitter, Google+, and Music. What we liked most about these is that you could totally strip out your home screen and replace it with a few of these shortcuts or simply add one or two to your current layout. Perhaps the best aprt is that a few of them offer notifications.
- Clock (with a working clock)
- Email (with notifications)
- Phone (with notifications)
- SMS (with notifications)
Please note that you need to download and install UCCW first, however that’s a free and easy-to-use application!
All of these have editable hotspots, to change a hotspot, make sure you disable them in UCCW first, then you can double tap on the skin and edit the hotspot. (then re-enable hotspots after).
And, as if this wasn’t cool enough, the creator has shared a PSD file for anyone who wants to create their own widget. All this for the always-attractive cost of nothing!
