N9Appdate: Home Screen Settings V1.6

| August 16, 2012 | 28 Replies

This one is quite out in the Store just yet, but the author has published over at TMO that V1.6 of Home Screen Settings is coming soon (pending Store Q&A & Translations). The update adds a feature I had wanted to implement and never got around to, as I didn’t know how. (Turns out the author told me in the comments from the last update :/ ).

Anyway, here is what he posted;

Home screen settings 1.6.0, currently pending translations (and then Store QA), will include the following features:

  • Icon shadows
  • Folder opacity
  • Custom operator name

Folder transparency can be seen in the screen shot below, and icon shadow is clearest in the one above. Both show the custom operator name.

        so is meego :/ Accucent can clearly add this folder UI and use swipe for the menu

          Harmattan will be soon, but MeeGo proper is not, at least yet.
          It has a new lease on life thanks to MeR/Nemo…
          Which is being commercially adapted/exploited by Jolla & others.

    In what universe is the folder opacity an useful feature?

    That last one pic… good grief.

    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      It is just an image showing that the opacity can be changed. It isn’t an on or off switch, it is a slider. Adjust it to what works for you

      In what universe is a optional feature something that you need to complain about?? You don’t have to use it it wont stand in your way, what is the problem??? apparently some people like it…

      • Peter

        Bad design choice does not become a good one even if some people do like it.

        • noki

          Not if you need to go out of your way to turn that option on. there are some things in computers were its win win situation people that don’t like the option will never have top deal with it, people that do like it will have it… win win…

          • noki

            PS I’m not even sure its a bad Usability option, it makes the folder items more visible, brings focus to them witch given the scope of the option might be a good idea…

    Hands down the most solid app for N9 anywhere!

  • Glavata

    • Ruben

      So true. N9 get’s better and better. I’m loving my N9 more and more each day. What a wonderfull device =)

  • Ibrahim

    do you have the last wallpaper?

    the app does not release yet, how do you get it.. TMO shows only 1st picture..

  • Anthony

    look at this thread on,

    download the walls from spunkybloke’s post

  • Cupraddict

    What about the “Live wallpaper”? With the N900 we could use some other anime like “the matrix” which was animed, can we hope one day this animation comes with this app?

    Thank you! (and sorry for my bad english)

    I have already received the update, but the update process was failed. (download failed)

    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      That is as now, in the latest version it is Paid. You need to purchase the app before you csn update.

      • Shane

        Which would’ve been totally obvious if he’s made the slightest attempt to read the latest article & comments, instead of necro-ing in an ancient one.

  • You undoubtedly allow it to be sound very easy with your speech but I obtain this condition for being truly something that we feel I’d personally in no way comprehend. It seems also complex and also considerable for me. Now i am looking forward to your upcoming create, I am going to make an effort to purchase the embrace of it!
