Animated Notification Pulldowns Coming to a ROM and Theme Near You?

YouTube Preview Image

Animated notification pulldown menus…could this be the next big thing to obsess over in ROM and theme development?  We’re not 100% sure on that, but after seeing just a couple of them already in action, the ideas are starting to float through our brains.  DF forum member Alastrionia deserves credit for figuring this out by tweaking the systemui.apk, but now we look to our favorite themers (@bgill55 and @jsinlegacy) and ROM developers (@jrummy16 and @bigxie) to find creative ways to make this look extra hot.

What do you guys think – is this hokey or could it be brilliant?

    The idea of design is to make it easier on the eyes. (Whether you like it or not, doeasn’t make it good design)  And too many themers seem to not grasp that concept. Either way too much contrast or way too little. This mod does nothing but make it even more distracting to read what is in the pull down menu, on top of that, it looks like it runs like complete crap!

    With all that said, have fun you nerdy little hackers!

    This is a good idea. Maybe not so much that matrix graphic but their are so many idea’s this could be useful for. I think it’s a solid addition when used in a thoughtful way.

    If we had a back ground that was a weather forecast or something useful that would be cool.
