eKo Dark Icon Theme
by: LucasDev • 21
Welcome to eKo Dark, the second app from the eKo family.
With this theme I wanted to explore some clean minimalist icons, something simple yet detailed, subtle yet original. I also wanted to offer matching wallpapers and custom widgets so that your entire setup may be made from this single theme family.
eKo Dark has 2000 custom icons all made at 192x192 to ensure the cleanest, sharpest look for your screen, there are also over 70 original eKo wallpapers exploring texture,shadows and layers.
As with all our icon themes the eKo family have their own Vault accessible through the fully themed app interface, in here you will find 27 matching widgets including eKo Music, eKo Display, eKo Header, eKo clock, eKo Weather and eKo Battery. In addition to this there are nearly 150 graphic components (clock hands,surrounds,hubs, music buttons etc) which gives you the ability to freely customise ANY of the widgets to suit your needs.
The pack can be auto-applied on most popular launchers, supports dynamic calendar (launcher dependant), has a fully automated icon request tool and utilises cloud wallpapers to keep the app size down.
The eKo family currently consists of eKo Dark and eKo Matte, widgets themed to match these packs as well as the forthcoming eKo Vivid can be found in the eKo Vault. The reason I have included them all is because this whole theme family was designed to work with each other, all three icon types can sit happily on a screen together and many of the widgets work well as a contrast to the icons.
Another main reason for doing this was because I believe the secret to a good theme is giving the user freedom and choice. Its what I would want.
With all the graphic components available in the Vault you're free to mix and match your widgets - want black buttons on a white music widget? No problem! Want vivid white weather and battery zooper packs in a blacked out display panel? No problem!
Play...... Change....... Theme...... Just have fun and make it your own!
So that's it, welcome to the eKo family.
Compatibility / Installation:
The creators of the launchers all have varying ways of executing an icon change and the functions they allow; some aspects of this pack will only work on certain launchers. As the launcher developers allow features I'll be sure to do all I can to make the app compatible, its a shame certain launchers (GO I mean you!!) decide to do something which means an icon pack can only work for their launcher and no-one elses - I wont support such a selfish approach, if you insist on using Go then please turn off the icon base.
Supported launchers - Action Launcher, Apex (Pro), Atom, Aviate, ADW (Ex), Holo, Nova (Prime), Next Launcher, Inspire Launcher,Smart Launcher.
There may be levels of support for other launchers that adopt the normal approach to icon packs - Let me know if any others work?
Note ~ Holo+ (the paid add on)will prevent the icon mask from working ~
Holo+ has a reversed method of masking compared to Holo/HoloHD (why???!!!)
Go launcher shares this masking protocol so will cause masked icons to not render correctly.
