    I have been using alot of iphone wallpapers.They are 640x960 so it takes very little effort to resize them to 540x960 for the vivid and there are tons for the iphone.

    What about for the Droid Charge? I'm not sure of the screen dimensions so I don't know what size to look for.

    Google is your friend 800x 480
    So if I'm not mistaken if you resized to 960x800 you would have a wallpaper that would be usuable over several screens at least thats the way it works on my phones

    Here's my new screen on my new phone. I just updated from the EVO 4G to 3D and am loving it. Especially the fact that I dont need to root or go through any long complicated process in order to take a screen shot. It has a screen shot function built in the phone.

    Many thanks go to paulmz for being the Windows Phone sensei. I followed his instructions and made my own icons in a couple afternoons. Lockscreen is modeled after Windows Phone too.

    Launcher Pro
    Min Text
    ICS Lockscreen Theme for WidgetLocker
    Missed It
    Desktop Visualizer

    Work in progress, subject to change without notice :)

    [​IMG]

    Using:
    Everything is Minimalistic Text except for the Music icon that i modified and applied with Desktop Visualizer. Naturally it links to my music player .

    I do not remember where i got the App drawer icon , sorry.

    Clock - is two separate Min Txt widgets overlapping

    Date widget- takes me to Gemini calender

    Heart monitor- takes me to battery stats. Since this changes every minute it's almost like having a live wallpaper LOL

    Weather- takes me to my Games folder. I know but what ya gonna do ?!

    Font used on the heart monitor is Meesam from dafont.com

    Hope I didn't forget anything been up way to long almost time to go to work too :(

    That didnt take long. I have already changed it a bit . Made a Folders Organizer widget for my Games :)

    Good question, I figured someone might ask that.
    Actually it is a clock widget that when you tap it takes you to the battery stats.

    To make it :
    Open min txt as a 1x3 vertical widget or a horizontal , set your background color/opacity or no background at all.

    Go to Predefined layout check Time 12.

    Go to each of the Text styles and chose the Mesaam font ( you will need to download and install it ). Do all the other things you might want like choose color and font size.

    I havent tried it yet but you could probably set the Accented text as a number by choosing a regular font . Then you would have the heart rate font a number then a heart rate font . If that works you probably wont need the next step but I will include it anyway.

    Still in min text check Start another activity then select an activity or a shortcut that you want to open by tapping the widget when it is on your screen.

    To make it easier if you ever want to use it again I recommend you save it. then if you ever want to use/edit it all yo have to do is open the Min Text preferences .

    You probably know most this but I mention it for someone who might not . Hope I didnt forget something.

    Good luck ! I'm off to try the number thing :) Edit : Didnt work

    Im going to guess you are asking of me. The font is called Mesaam, get it from dafont.com. Then you will need to install it to your phone and associate it to min text.
    You do not need to be rooted

    Messing around with Min Text and some fonts. I think I need a better font for the "heart rate" or am image for an icon maybe. But if I use a font it changes every 60 seconds and I like that .

    Ideas ? Got a lead on a better font ?

    If you want to make themes do a google search there are tons of info.Here is a Link about making themes here> http://androidcommunity.com/forums/...eme-followup-to-stericsons-walkthrough-13106/
    Info on fonts below.
    Not really sure or don't know how but there is a small Windows program tucked away in the recesses of Windows own System32 folder. The ‘Private Character Editor’ (PCE) is almost a monochrome replica of MS Paint but with a different utility. If you want to create your own fonts or symbols then this is the tool to fire up. An ‘out of sight’ program, it is used in conjunction with the ‘Character Map’. Through the PCE you can make your own characters (about 6,400 of them!) and insert them into documents using the ‘Character Map’. PCE provides basic drawing tools for creating and editing those characters, along some advanced options.
    So let’s dig it out and understand its functions.

    1. To start the Private Character Editor, click the Start menu, and then click Run (or the Windows Key & R). In the Open box, type C:\WINDOWS\system32\eudcedit.exe
    2. PCE starts with a “˜Select Code Window’. This window associates the character you are about to create with a particular position in the Windows character library. The funny numbers are hexadecimal codes that will be allotted to your new character. Select any of the little grey boxes and click on OK.
      Note: By default, PCE uses the Unicode character set.
      This may help building your own fonts but as far as themes i have not looked into this yet.
