    It's possible this person didn't want the icons to clash with the wallpaper. ;)

    Not weird at all, it bugged me a bit as well. Turns out Simple Calendar will allow you to turn off the month and date display, see below.

    Smooth Calendar has a lot of restrictions, even if you resize it the text does not expand. I also prefer to specify colors more exactly than the slider approach they use. And the entire widget color is set. Simple Calendar allows me to set individual item colors and styles.

    I also tried the Vos Neon icons, I like the style and bit better but they don't convey conditions as obviously to me.

    I'm very text based so I read the labels better than processing icons. I also do know the position of each item pretty well.

    Thanks for thinking enough of my design to spend the time critiquing it.

    Cool, I'm going to give simple calendar a run and see how I like it. I agree smooth calendar has a few restrictions that bug me but it was close enough to what I was looking for. The color sliders is definitely a pet peeve of mine. I'll see if simple calendar can win me over.

    I have seen it before on other home screens, and I am sure it has been asked before but I could not find it in the first 8-9 pages of this thread. What Clock/Calendar widget are you using?

    Thanks very much jbdan! I got most of my inspiration from this thread and I love the ICS Blue (as you can see!) so I incorporated that into it too and I'm pretty happy with what I came up with! This should do me for a while now, been tweaking a lot lately but I think I'm settled on this.

    Also your screen looks great too, glad I was some bit of inspiration!!

    Its nova launcher...deactivated the dock and used the long press function on all my function icons for what would have been in the dock. Aka...if I long press phone...I get my SMS...long press home...I get the app drawer...and so on. Gives me more screen space on my home screens. Currently using aokp m5 rom to modify nav buttons
