adorn your android: calendar widget tutorial

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Since the 90s are making such a huge comeback [which seems odd because I like to think they weren't that long ago...] my November phone theme is inspired by the 90s.  I think I've just had the 90s on my brain lately.  From seeing fashion inspired by the 90s, to constantly listening to 90s grunge rock on google play music... I'm feeling nostalgic.

I chose a background of Seattle because one of my favorite things of the 90s is grunge music.  Nothing screams grunge music like Seattle.  I was flipping through my zooper widget for a good clock/calendar widget.  I found this one which is just a calendar, but I loved it && knew I could make it look 90s'ish.

You will need to download Zooper Widget from the google play store.

Once installed, you will choose your widget menu.  As you can see there's several sizes of widget to choose from.  I chose 4x2.

Once you place your widget, you'll need to tap it to start the customization.

Scroll through until you find the DaveDate widget style.  Then select it.

Here's where you will choose the different settings for DaveDate.  The setting menu is pretty self explanatory.  Choose the "layout" menu to change the colors of the background lines of the widget.

Once in there you'll see 2 "Rect" options.  The first is the horizontal blue line, and the second is the vertical red line.  I'll show you how to change these to the pretty pink && light blue I chose.  Select the first "Rect".

Just tap the color box and it'll bring up a color wheel to change your color.  You will do that in both "Rect" menus.  It's easy peasy.  Then you've got an awesome calendar widget!  It's totally customizable if you don't like the colors I chose... choose your own! <33

As a bonus, here's my lockscreen this month.  I'm really into glittery looking images right now.  I found this on cocoPPa and fell in love.

Find me on cocoPPa "emileeblogs".  All my icons && wallpaper were found on cocoPPa.  It's a free app that has a plethora of free wallpapers && icons to customize your phone screens.  To see my past phone themes && layouts, click on "phone" under the categories section in my sidebar >>>
