It seems just about every other phone section has a thread like this, so here's ours.
Here's mine. I'm finally satisfied. Using Go Launcher EX w/Suave Theme, Fancy Widgets, and Simple Text for the dock icons. Functional, easy on the eyes and goes really well with the blue notification bar.
there's no screen shot ability on the Droid 3 so i cant (and i wont root)
Shurple, you can take caps without root. I'm not rooted and I have plenty of screen caps lol. You just gotta download the Android SDK.
lildj0809, that is sharp!
Is this launcher7? Your screen looks sweet.
Beautiful Widgets and libertyd3 2.1
Nope, it's a widget called Desktop VisualizeR. I made the icons myself though. The widget just allows you to resize them.
I have minimalistic text on my phone but I found this screen shot and for the life of me I cannot get it to look like this. I want it to look exactly like this on my phone. Anyone know what settings to use? Or if this is even minimalistic text? I use LauncerPro so maybe thats why I am having problems with getting it to look like this (like the oversize of the digits so that they are slightly larger than the screen) but I cannot even find where to add the colon in between the digits of the time.. or how they got the PM on top of it.. any help would be appreciated
I can't recall the name of it, but that's actually a live wallpaper, not a widget.
I used to run it.
Found it, it's WP Clock
Very awesome! thank you
I was hoping to get that look over my Digital Hive live wallpaper..
if only they were combined! lol
Really? Do I get the Android SDK in the market? And your screen is sweet!
o_o teach me your ways...
Anyone? what's an Android SDK?
Software Development Kit. The SDK includes a tool that can capture screen shots from phones.
This web site seems to have good instructions for all that you need to do with your Windows PC and your phone to do this:
How to take screenshots of your Android based phone from Windows – Simple Help
(The Mac is a bit easier, as you don't need to install any USB drivers, you don't need the JDK, and you just expand the Android SDK into a folder and run the ddms app.)
Updated mine a bit.
Nothing special, just added Beautiful Widgets.
As for the wallpaper, that's my own custom special
I'm PC only. at home and work. Thanks for the explanation. I just want to press a button or two like on the iphone to screen shot. I'm NEVER hooked up to a computer.
edit: read the instructions. they ARE very clear but i dont turn my PC on at home very often, and when i put the phone in debug mode my PC gives me errors. I called for tech support and i was told not to put the phone in debug mode. Therefore, i only put music on my phone and that's it.
Most of the time when i wanna screen shot something, i'm not at home (not allowed to connect to computer at work).
thanks anyway. After seeing how droids work, i'm convinced to make the switch back to apple as soon as i'm able (year and a half ugh)
Well, if you root the phone, there are apps that can capture screen shots.
what is the screenshot app? and yes my droid 3 is rooted..
^^the name of the app
ok i am trying to post the picture of my screenshot but i cant figure out how to. can anyone help me out
i dont know how to enlarge it, so just click on it and it will give you a good view
I am rooted but chose to stay stock OS. That is my Fire Cornsnake Molly as my wall paper.
Here's mine. Running AOKP Build 25. I just noticed my signal strength...Verizon was on their game this morning!
How come the photo wont load? Using the app on my phone, the url it is hosted on, and the app adds the code....
