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.

  1. Camera
  2. Clock (with a working clock)
  3. Email (with notifications)
  4. Google+
  5. Movies
  6. Music
  7. Phone (with notifications)
  8. Playstore
  9. Settings
  10. SMS (with notifications)
  11. Twitter

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!
