    [MM] Dark Minimalism | DONATE BUTTON LIVE

    Hey DroidForum!

    I'm REALigion, I'm the creator of a theme that's currently in the works that's currently titled "Dark Minimalism" (lame, I know, if you have any ideas for a name post them:p). Anyhow, it's gotten really good response so far over on AllDroid (the mockups have, I'm currently working on coding and implementing the imageS). I figured I'd come over here and let all of you guys know about it as well! The first release will be for 2.1.

    I've been told that this will be the first complete UI redesign, but I've not looked around to fact-check that :p. Anyways, first public release will probably be in about a month or two, but as you can see from AllDroid, you can donate to gain tester status!

    So if you're interested in a very clean, simple theme, I'd like you to check out my topic: Dark Minimalism | AllDroid


    DONATE BUTTON IS LIVE. Go ahead and check out the bottom of the OP to donate.
    Also there is a timeframe up, beta/tester/donor launch is on the 25th, so if you want tester release, hurry up on over there!
    New screenshots as well, check them out and let me know what you think :D

    Thanks

    Defect, it's not going to be up until I get the very first release a bit functional on my phone and my coders' phone. I don't want to have people donate just to discover that I couldn't pull it off.

    This theme could actually pull me away from shaded glass. I'll follow it and possibly donate in the future. Great work, and good luck making it look as good as the mock ups!

    Thanks guys! I'm glad to hear FlipBack. I'm having Xeodoxus code, (WONDERFUL coder) and he's doing an incredible job.

    You better hurry up with this theme REALigion!!

    J/K :p

    I love what I've seen of it so far :) And I know if its mixed with xeudoxus' high-quality work, this is going to be one great theme. I can't wait to try this out...

    This is probably the most effort I've ever seen put into something for the Droid, so I mean I know it has to be pretty good when it is released. By you making everyone wait this long, you have to deliver something awesome :p !!

    Nah, looks great, keep up the hard work man

    Haha I'm trying to :) It's moving along pretty quickly now. I hope it's going to be great, it's coming out fantastically so far. Every problem we've encountered Xeudoxus has put to death. :p He actually just completed something that hasn't been done before as far as he knows. We'll be theming the entire system almost, by the first public release. Then from there on I'll be skinning apps that are very common (or at least trying to :p).

    Ahh yes he does, indeed. He's VERY talented. It's an honor to be working with him.


    Big Lou, here's a preview, I'm not sure if you've seen it, it was on the AllDroid topic. PhoneApp
    EDIT: It's more a mockup than preview. I'm not sure about if I can make the phone background match the wallpaper of the phone, if not, it'll just look greyish. But of course looking nice and clean :)

    Looks great so far. This is the kind of theme I've been looking for. Can't wait to try it out when you finish it.

    I am looking forward to the release of this as well. This will be worth updating to 2.1 for.

    Yea, I'm pretty pumped to see this out too. I really like smoked glass but the previews on this are awesome. Plus it's nice to have options. I'm digging the dialer

    As a graphic designer, this is EXACTLY what I have been looking for...

    simple. clean. dark. contemporary. mature.

    Are you using the Segoe font from Windows 7? That looks like the same font I been running on my Droid.

    Again, I just love it.
