MyColorScreen’s Themer Hits Google Play, Here is a Full Tour

mycolorscreen themer android

MyColorScreen’s Themer is now available on Google Play for those of you interested in the design sharing site’s take on an automated theme application. As of now, it’s still in closed beta, meaning you have to sign-up to receive a code that can unlock the app’s capabilities. It’s also free, so you may as well download and sign-up to get your name on the list. Thankfully, we received a code this morning and have since filmed an entire tour of the app and its features. You’ll find all of the details, including that video below.Β 

Before we begin, you should probably understand what Themer is, which is a third party launcher that can quickly download and apply themes to your phone in a matter of seconds. In a way, it’s similar to what we saw with Buzz Launcher in that it has a store of sorts, which you download and apply themes from. So Themer won’t wipe out your Nova Launcher setup – it will instead run as a completely separate launcher.

The themes can be marked as a “favorite,” previewed, and applied with a couple of simple taps. Each will need to be downloaded upon first application, but they are then stored in a “Downloaded” section in case you want to go back them later. There aren’t a ton of themes at this time, but remember that this is a beta. We’d be surprised if there weren’t new themes added quite regularly.

The app really is incredibly simple to use, but it also delivers immediate results that I think you’ll appreciate.Β For those who love advanced settings, it has an area in Settings for you as well. You can tweak grids, add or remove docks, hide notification bars, and move things around until you are completely satisfied.

Again, you can grab the app today from Google Play, but you’ll have to sign-up and hope that an unlock code arrives shortly.

    Does anybody have a link or name of the wallpaper he has in the beginning?

  • nochansey

    “There are 74,451 in front of you” I’m still waiting. :<

    • David

      140,000+. I waited too long. :/

  • Darrin W. Crenshaw

    Signed up for it weeks ago and it is awesome. There’s not much to choose from but that’s a given. It’s super smooth. I doubt it’ll give Nova or Apex a run for their money but regardless – the concept is amazing.

  • brad kou

    I can only switch to two different themes. Im running Pacman Rom on my Nexus 4. Any ideas what is happening?

  • John Jompa Johansson

    119,191 ahead of me. Just a few hundreds for two hours. πŸ™ Could this take a year? lol

  • jmsbwmn


    • Aceplanet

      Thats how i was yesterday. i still dont have a code. Now it just tells me … on that page, and on the website it says my code has been sent but i have nothing.

  • N. K

    For 10h ago I had 108,638 ppl in front of me. Now I have 107,484.
    They send like 115 invites per hour. So I calculated and it will take me about 38 days until I get my code πŸ™

    • ryan f

      It’s been quicker then that . I was at 104k yesterday around this time and now am at 82k.

  • Benjamin Mackie

    Got my code not to long ago, very cool app

  • david

    Got my code today, This is actually pretty brilliant!
    I didnt expect it to be as great as it seems to be so far. wow. Very nice!
    Works great

  • nmaxfield

    got my code this afternoon and themes aren’t loading at all on my nexus 4 πŸ™

    • bibbyboi

      Same here. Anyone know why?

      • nmaxfield

        figured it out, has something to do with resolutions. in my case, i’m running aokp rom and my navigation bar is at 36dp. if you reset it to the default, everything loads. seems like a really dumb bug to me, but i’m sure it’ll get fixed in future releases. in the meantime, if i want to check out some themes, i just set the navbar height back to default.

  • Rex

    VIsual themes that can be changed on the fly? Yay, welcome to Symbian circa 2002!

  • Guy Pierce

    98,621 In front of me.

    • Guy Pierce

      Just received my code!

  • Str8Rippin

    90,000 and some change in front…

  • Shantanu Hem Kabadi

    where’s the freakin code :

  • Geekdad

    I got my code last night. The themes are limited. Only about a dozen to choose from.

  • br_hermon

    What about editing an existing layout or creating your own? I’d like to see a video of that.

    if you use it, please reply below so a hundred people don’t get too excited

    • BewilderedAlbatross

      Oh my god I love you. That worked

      • Clayton Burnett

        glad someone finally found and used it. stupid Optimus G and it’s incompatible screen resolution.

  • Mark

    33 people in front of me

  • Γ–zgΓΌr Celebi

    Well just 87,694 people in front of me.

  • skaterjosh98

    Ive been running this thing through its paces all day and its better than I imagined. There were a few hiccups with random crashing but I have a feeling it was something I was doing wrong. It will be nice as more people have access to it so more amazing themes can be made.

  • Aditya Marella

    dosnt it work in India?

  • mavericksid

    323 infront of me πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

  • JT

    Hats off to the developers of this. This is incredible.

  • Clayton Burnett

    Either every one on this forum just signed up today. .. Or doesn’t it seem odd that most people are in the 74k range?

  • Don Goncalves

    There are 77,689 people in front of you.

  • Alix8821

    Love the idea. Will certainly get better over time. It is still BETA.

    But I still cant break myself away from my perfect setup on Action Launcher.

    Happy I got my code fairly quickly tho. Looks very promising. Especially for those people who don’t root (not me)

  • matrix2004

    Regardless of what launcher you use. I highly recommend ‘C Locker’ for the lockscreen.

    • david

      widgetlocker wins. lol

  • 8,251 in front of me. I guess that is not bad considering the people with numbers like 79k.

  • There are 79,000 people in front of you!

  • Prince Campbell III

    79,950 in front of me

  • 2837 until I get my code!

  • JD_26

    There are 83,299 people in front of you.

  • Elijah Mason

    There are 78,630 people in front of you.

  • Brian Simon

    There are 78,592 people in front of you.

  • Brandon

    77 thousand in front better late then never…

  • Sakita

    almost 83,000 people in front of me. dang why did i wait to press submit. lol

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    Not compatible with the G2? Why the eff not?

  • Michael Martin

    where do you see what number you are? I never got anything in the two emails I received back int he beginning of September

    • tumatos

      Just go to their website and insert your email on the form.

      • Michael Martin

        i do wonder if the signup for the beta did something for me since I am 15k while my gf is like 80k. I did the signup in the first week of september while she didnt do it ever.

  • Chris

    Is there a way to have multiple homescreens? On Buzz Launcher, you could have home screens from multiple themes all at once. With Themer, it seems as though you can only have one theme at a time.

  • Not compatible with my G2 πŸ™

  • billjohnson777

    I have a code….But when I installed this morning….themes were not loading… O_0

    • Clayton Burnett

      Same here.. I’m on LG Optimus g and they recently posted the resolutions that they support. . SO sol until they add it. .. Wish i could give away my code now…

  • teejaycard

    15,708 in front of me.

  • Rich Robinson

    Won’t let me download for the G2?

  • BRIM

    How would you people compare to BuzzLauncher?

    • Grizzly Atoms

      It looks like it actually applies UCCW widgets. BuzzLauncher doesn’t do this and is the main reason I stopped using it as the best themes usually have UCCW widgets.

      • BRIM

        This was also my biggest gripe. BuzzLauncher was essentially just a way to “bookmark” themes and it located the ones being shown (which was great, but in no way intuitive). I hope this alleviates that.

  • Benjamin Mackie


  • fixxxer3838

    I got my code last night. It’s pretty sweet. Fast responsive and super slick. There aren’t a ton of themes yet since it’s in beta, but if they keep adding more it’s going to be amazing.

    • EvanTheGamer

      I see that there’s a GTA V theme? Noticed this on the official website. If so, that’s pretty awesome!

      Can’t wait to be invited to the beta!

  • Guest

    Does anyone have a code?

  • Chris Spisak

    Just got a code, its extremely easy to use and quick. Its pretty sweet so far although there are not too many themes out yet, and I still kind of like my custom one for now. I’ll have to play around more though when not at work.

    • Brian

      What number were you in line? I’m at 10,009…

      • Chris Spisak

        I don’t remember the exact number but I had heard about and signed up for Themer a few weeks ago. I think I saw it on Reddit or something long before I saw it on Droidlife or Lifehacker

  • Philip J. Fry

    75056….I wish I would’ve remembered this earlier.

  • rthvk

    Heh. I signed up weeks and weeks ago, and I only have 11,500 people ahead of me.

    This reminds me of Mailbox, when my iPod touch came out of the pits of doom just so I could see it.

  • Nideda24

    Signed up a while back, only 5135 in front of me and no code.

  • Adam Ropic

    ugh, 79,497 in line :/

  • paul

    There are 75,108 people in front of you.

  • epps720

    has anyone actually received a code?

  • Shane Redman

    79,767……here’s to opening it up at least to the first 80,000 lol

  • Rick Lopez

    This looks incredibly cool!!!!

  • Rick Lopez

    Dam its only 49 degrees in Portland…geesh that sucks! Although I wish it was a little cooler in Orlando.

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      the humidity makes florida’s weather intolerable :/

      • Rick Lopez

        Yes our humidity is the worst…cannot argue there. Today though reminds me why I love Florida low 80’s and zero humidity.

        • El_Big_CHRIS

          I visited a lot of places in florida. My favourites were St Augustine and the keys. By the 2nd week i was already use to it. But having 0 humidity is awesome πŸ™‚

  • Dave

    is that the moto x or nexus 4?

    • Shane Redman

      MotoX….you can tell when he opens the camera

      • Jaxon Wright

        or when there’s a touchless control option in settings

      • Chris

        Wow I legit thought it was the Nexus 4. I was wondering why the camera looked like that haha

  • Dragonscourgex

    I sign up for the beta a few weeks back, just waiting for my code πŸ™‚

    • New_Guy

      Make sure you download the app as well.

      • Dragonscourgex

        I did. I also go the code last night. πŸ™‚

  • shkrmkr79

    “There are 74,817 people in front of you.” lol, awesome.

  • a3uge

    This is awesome, but it would be hard giving up the app drawer set up of Action Launcher.

    • scorchedsky

      Same thoughts here, I have my app drawer in Nova separated into like 20 folders. I never go through the app drawer alphabetically. I also used double-tap on an empty homescreen tile -> app drawer. While this looks pretty, I tried it out and it nuked all Nova shortcuts / app drawer functionality.

      • Ray Gray

        same here i have 9 folders in my app drawer google,photo,tools,etc…hard to give up all my organization!

  • Chris Batson



    What wallpaper is that on your nova home-screen?

  • ßen Murphy

    “There are 16,376 people in front of you…” . Oh boy!

    • SplashMTN

      There are 74.456 people in front of me.

      • The Phenom

        76,000 plus ahead of me.

        • jaredgreenwald

          79720 for me

          • Jeremy Gentry

            There are 76,833 people in front of you.

      • Andrew Egger

        There are79.634 people in front of me

        • EvanTheGamer

          There are 76,226 people in front of me.

          Looks like I might be waiting awhile.

    • Opinionated_In_Bangor

      8,743 in front of me. Hopefully they release quite a few beta codes.

      • New_Guy

        Got mine about 7 hours ago. Told me I had 4,100 in front of me and only took about an hour to get the code. So there’s hope.

        I can feel you this, the Breaking Bad theme is amazing.

        • Opinionated_In_Bangor

          I’m down to 3.441 this morning. So def. codes are going out the door.

    • OrangeAttack

      I need a time machine

      • HELLU


    • Eric R.

      15,128 for me. How long will it take?

    • New_Guy

      Jumped in it early. Only 4,100 in front of me :).

    • Nathaniel Mosher

      3,137 πŸ™‚ Guess I was really early lol

      • Guest

    • mavericksid

      • Hoffman

        • mavericksid

          Yesterday it was 9687,
          Today it’s 323 πŸ™‚

          • Hoffman

            Oh, that’s great then! Thanks.

          • palomosan

            9,361 in front of my as of now.
