VU meters have a certain delightful nostalgia to them. While we may have more space-efficient ways to measure battery life, this home screen sure looks good doing it.

This design can be used with Themer, or you can load up the widgets in Zooper with Nova. To get it on Themer, download the .zip from the source below and follow these instructions:

  4. Choose “VU-stable.zip”.
