    I am trying to figure out how to change the text color on my tapatalk widget. I'm sure most people know that the forum name is almost the same color as the background of the widget and so it is hard to see. So I'd like the change the text '@droidforums' to black. I really have no experience with modifying apks, but I used ninjamorph to extract the apk. And i searched through the /res folder and the folders within that. I thought i would just have to change a .png file but it seems thats not it lol. Do i have the change a .xml file? Could someone maybe just point me in the right direction to do this? I figured i'd try something small like just changing text color of a widget, then maybe later i can learn how to change backgrounds, etc to match the rest of the theme that i use.

    I found this too..

    It is going to be a change within an .xml unfortunately I am not sure which one it is - I also noticed this on the tapatalk widget besides that it was an odd size - I stopped using it, you might also check out the exclusive Droid Forums Application
