Launcher support

Animations work only on launchers that fully supports the Android standards, so, for example, Google Now Launcher and Nova Launcher are fully supported. Some others might have problems, the only known launcher with issues right now is GO Launcher 

TIDY for KLWP

You spend a lot of time in your living room, yeah? Sometimes you tidy up your living room. Why? Because it makes you feel better and/or stops your mom and/or girlfriend from whining about it. You also spend a lot of time with your phone, yeah? Do you ever tidy up your phone? Your home screen? Your dirty internet browser log?

Here’s the step-by-step on how to get it running with no problems.

– Install KLWP Live Wallpaper Maker Pro. TIDY, or any other theme, cannot be viewed, set or edited without this app. You need the PRO version to install external themes/presets (trust me, it’s worth it if you’re into customizing and/or personalizing every aspect of your home screen).

– Install this theme or any other theme (there’s a lot of incredibly beautiful preset packs out there). Any app with the additional “for KLWP” in its title will work. I also have a few other presets here on the Google Play Store that you might be interested in. Most are free, the ones that took a lot of time to create have a reasonable price on them. Shameless self-promotion over.

OPTIONAL:

Get Nova Launcher. Now I can assure you that this will work in any launcher where you can set two homepages, but I highly recommend getting Nova Launcher for these themes, as most designers/developers optimize and test their apps using Nova Launcher. It’s also just a great Launcher overall. 🙂 NOTE: remember to enable wallpaper scrolling. If this is turned off, the theme won’t work as intended.

– Go into KLWP and on the left side menu, click “Load preset”. Find this theme, TIDY, or any other theme and click on it. This will set the theme.

– After the little preview window loads, click the save icon in the upper right menu before exiting.

– Be sure to set “Kustom” as your current live wallpaper on your phone. Note: Kustom, or KLWP, runs like any ol’ live wallpaper, meaning you can add apps and widgets on top of it just like you would do on your phone right now.

– If you want to replicate what you can see in the promo material, hide the notification bar and the dock and be sure to set your home screen page amount to 3. You summon the new notification bar by simply touching the upper area of your screen. You can manually hide it again by touching the area right beneath it.
