    Here's a link to an article about an app that lets you theme more than 35 system application overlays and more than 10 third-party applications’ overlays. In addition, a universal selector for having either a “Light” theme or a “Dark” theme activated is available as well. Moreover, there’s more than a thousand pre-defined colors to pick from coupled with an archive of all the themes’ source files.

    Thanks man, been looking for something like this for a hell of a long time. Will try it out this weekend!

    Meh. Just tried it out a little while ago and did a couple experiments. It's just kinda cool in my opinion. While the concept and idea is great, there's really not a lot of control you have when it comes to customization. Can set primary color, statusbar color, and an accent color. You can choose some apps heading colors, like FB, many google apps, etc. But that's about it. I haven't seen any options to set custom backgrounds of individual apps like the phone dialer, etc. Also the icons in the quick settings, would be nice to be able to select a on and off color for all toggles actually, but I don't believe any of this is possible.

    The best part is that there are tons of free fonts to download, and I also learned how to disable the theme store so I can enable it, download a trial theme, disable the store, and I can use trial mode without expiration. :cool:

    Hmm, just got a notification from the play store that this app has been suspended. I clicked to view the whole notification but accidentally dismissed it, so I'm not clear on the reason.

    If you create your own theme or use .XDA-made Samsung themes and .have a problem with the Samsung Themes Store automatically reverting to a stock theme after every reboot, XDA Developers have a theme service killer that should solve the problem.

    Will it remove the battery icon for me, or does it merely overlay?

    I've tried System UI but it requires CMD line shinanigans that I should not be encouraged to mess with.

    Thanks, I have been looking for something like this as well. Love the fact that you get so much more freedom with Android.

    No, it's very limited as to what you can do. Only a few color mods and font selection. (possibly some sounds too if I remember right.)
