I altered minor details in the current launcher as I thought this looks better. Here is what I did and how it looks.
App list being displayed behind searchbar is not appealing. A blank space behind it without being transparent with a swipe up indicator would look good
Current search bar is only aimed at app search. Integrating with root and adding more functionality to search in app content, contacts and browser search integration along with a voice search would be nice.
Ratio currently doesn’t allow adding widgets. Allowing it would be nice.
I edited the calendar and Clock view on Expanded mode to work as widgets. Dynamic Icons for Calendar & Clock where in Calendar - displays today’s date Clock - displays current time
Clock, Notifications, network indicator, battery and other icons to be in line with Homescreen design.
I tried to spice it up with rounded style network indicators, and Marker coloraturas scheme along with font used in home screen.
App drawer Title Text:
White text is good, an option to edit it in styles similar to app icon displays would be nice.
I tried to apply
- Bright Highlight - Essentials
- Marker - Favorites
- Dark Highlight. - Most used
Need more icons to be inline with Ratio design. In this case we can see Messages, Game Space, iMobile, Cred, ZigWheels to be different.
I couldn’t design icons though.
