Unofficial and Indirect Star Wars Theme



With all the Star Wars talk this week, I wanted to setup my Android device to better show off my fandom. It started quite simply with the picture for the First Order Loyalists which I saw on the Star Wars Google+ page. When I set it as my wallpaper, my color theme automatically adjusted to match the wallpaper (a nifty feature of Action Launcher v3 which I had forgotten I had enabled). I mention version 3 specifically because it is the version that applies a Material Design theme to your homescreen based on the colors in the wallpaper. From here, it was a matter of finding a good color for my weather widget which I settled for with black since my app drawer, folder backgrounds, and notification shade didn't incorporate it. Finally, it was a matter of finding a good icon pack to match the wallpaper. While poking around Google Play and Google+, I came back to an icon pack I hadn't used for some time which nicely (at least to my amateur eyes) match the look and feel of the wallpaper.
