You can use them all together too. Last 2 screenshots show how different color tiles look together.

To use this skin, you have to install, apply and edit/assign hotspots to the skin.

  1. Install -
    1. This is a skin installer. Launch the app and tap "Install Skin".
    2. Next screen, tap "OK" for "Replace app?".
    3. Next screen, tap "Install". When that finishes, tap "Done". Skin is now installed.
  2. Apply -
    1. You must have Ultimate custom widget (UCCW) 2.1.2 or higher installed. http://goo.gl/eDQjG
    2. Place a UCCW widget of 1X1 size on the homescreen. You can do so by dragging the widget from app drawer or by long pressing homescreen to pull up widget menu.
    3. This will open the skins list. Skins downloaded from play store will show up ONLY HERE.
    4. Select any Tiles skin you want from here. The skin will be applied to the widget.
    5. Resize the widget now to best fit your screen.
    6. Repeat the step to place any number of widgets.
    7. Recommendation - Use Nova launcher. Grid size 6x4. Dock hidden. Statusbar & Navbar stock size. For Galaxy Nexus - Horizontal and Vertical margin = None. Other devices, use different values and see which works best.
  3. Edit -
    1. After applying the skin as mentioned above, launch UCCW app itself. Tap Menu, tap "hotspot mode" and tap 'OFF'. UCCW will exit.
    2. Now tap anywhere on the uccw widget. It'll open in uccw edit window.
    3. Scroll through the components in the bottom half of the screen. Assign apps to hotspots in this window. This IS a MUST.
    4. You can change hour format etc too (optional) in this window.
    5. When done, tap Menu, tap "hotspot mode" and tap 'ON'. UCCW will exit.
    6. Your changes will now be applied to the widget.
