Lifehacker reader SPoZB gives the minimalist look a bit of extra style with some cool text widgets. Here you can see he has put one in each corner of his Android home screen.
To put this together, you'll need:
- Launcher: Apex Launcher Pro
- Clock and Date Widgets: UCCW with a skin from the Series pack
- Battery Widget: Minimalistic Text
- Weather Widget: Eye In Sky
- Icon Pack: MetroStation
SPoZB explains what he did to put it all together:
I enabled overlapping widgets to fit the 1x1 weather widget into the corner of the time widget. I also disabled the status bar to remove some clutter from the screen.
The icon in the lower right is a folder containing my most frequently used apps.
I set no background image, feeling that placing this on a solid black background gave it a very clean look. Each of the dock bar icons has swipe actions assigned.
