    Lightbulb Android's ADW launcher + 2 widgets = Minimalist CarFE?

    This is a work in in progress.

    This is my Sequoia and the tablet is the rooted GTab 8.9 LTE. Usig ADW Launcher + Multipicture live wallpaper and Simple text.
    I know there are Anddroid apps for the car, but either I don't like them, or when they work, they dont have the style I want. Iv've been using mp3car member's AndCar app with good results.
    I'm liking these better, though:









    Please be easy on the criticism, suggestions are welcome. :-) Im looking for a widget to display the current paying song, no matter what source (Google Music, Amazon, Pandora, etc.) Any ideas?

    Video Showing the transitions. Very Smooth, IMHO.

    Are you getting that (appearing/disappearing) dock via ADW or something else?

    The zoom effect come from the multi picture live wallpaper. There also a silimilar zoom and slide setting that is very cool. The ads also has a zoom effect that only applies to the Widgets and icons. I just left it at default.

    Very cool. Didnt think of the simple text widgets. Love it.

    Interested to see if you find a widget that shows song playing.

    Oh, I got it. Yes, that from ADW. You can setup and down gesture actions, like this one. Useful when you want to use the tablet when you're not driving, etc. The dock comes with adw, you cando a couple of things with it too (I enlarged the icons).

    No problem. For now I'm using media buttons widget that simulates BT headphone controls. I've put three black round butoons on the top right side in the music page (prev, play/pause, next). Works great with all the apps I've tested.just need the track info display now.

    Mr Rippling Hurst do you know of a app that can control a android tablet to shut down when power is removed from the charge port?
