    Either use a 4x1 widget or do a separate weather widget then move it to the right.

    Just call me Bob-basic, lol.
    The only things I've changed is the font and a couple curvefish widgets at the top. And the wallpaper obviously.
    Simple = goooood. :)

    My current lock and home screen (I hope the wallpaper is considered tasteful enough for this forum, otherwise I apologize and assume a mod will delete the post).

    Having parts of the interface pushed right up against the edge doesn't look all that great in screenshots, but since the pure black areas of the wallpaper blend almost seamlessly with the frame of the phone, it looks much better there.

    WidgetLocker for the lock screen, GoLauncher for the home screen.

    Experimentation :). A good place to start might be to look up alternative home screen interfaces (GoLauncher and Launcher Pro are the most popular I think), and many of us seem to use WidgetLocker for the lock screen.

    Then start searching for themes/skins/icons for those apps, and after that you can move on to things like clock and weather widgets. In the screenshot I just posted I use "Minimalistic Text" for time/date, weather and the battery percentage (Minimalistic Text can take a bit of time to get the hang of though, it has some fairly advanced options if you don't just want to stick with the default widgets).

    The widget app showing missed calls/messages is "Missed It!". And the music player widget is from PlayerPro.

    The alien is my own artwork, I also use a live wallpaper that causes distortion as I run my finger across it. (waterize)

    Other than that, it's Lite'ning Rom 5.0, Go Launcher with the Blue Neon Plus theme.

    Most people think it's weird, but it's my style for my phone.

    Its called "simple calendar Widget", its meant to go with "simi clock widget", but is developed by someone different I think. With a bit of customization you can make them both look fairly identical though :D

    Nice. Its definitely tasteful enough for me. Looks like Sophie Moone and Monica Sweet so no complaints from me.
