    Lightbulb UnusuallyGenius Stock Theme



    I have revised the theme...again.
    Every version looks better than the one before.
    So here are some of the images.

    Home Screen: Much Cleaner Look


    Revised Volume Bar


    Notice the Volume Button Glows Red when muted

    I would like to start working on a main screen, but i need an idea to run with. I am aware of the many different types of main screens, but do not yet know where this one is going. As soon as I know, I can create a home screen that looks as good as the rest.

    Thats kinda cool....

    Right now the main screen is really up in the air. I would say the best bet is to go with pure icons. 6-8 (depending on how well they fit) large detailed icons.

    Also, I had a two minor corrections in the other thread...the volume button and the media position slider.

    Sorry bout that - thought i had put it in...

    Other post: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/open...ml#post1329205

    And heres the text:
    can you do a volume icon in the top left and then shift the album art? (that should complete the four corners concept). And with the media bar, add some type of position slider kind of thing just above the buttons.

    Main Screen


    Highlighted Button


    Can you clarify exactly how the volume button should behave, as you can see i shifted the album art over to make room for it, but i dont know exactly what you want it to do, so i can draw it

    thanks

    Wow looks great. I'm kind of making this up as I go along but I think the volume icon is going to just be the typical speaker type volume icon (should have one for sound on and one for mute). When the volume icon is clicked a semi-transparent volume level bar will appear on the left side of the screen. Then it can be controlled by sliding your finger up and down the left quarter of the screen similar to operating a scroll wheel.

    Double tapping the volume icon will bring open the audio control panel with settings, an eq and all those goodies.

    Sounds good but wouldn't it be more optimal if the volume button was in the center and then you tap for mute or hold and drag left or right for volume up or down? That way you don't have to activate the volume slider, move your finger, then drag...
