    I feel the same. It takes to long to theme individual components. A whole change at the push of a button is great.

    I signed up for the beta but I am in the 100s of thousands or so.

    Great concept and hopefully it rolls out soon to give it a whirl.

    Signed up too.

    I normally stick to stock, just to save time from setting up a theme to suit me.

    I've been using themer since yesterday. I like it. The themes are limited. But buzz launcher always ate my battery and this one isn't.

    Well unfortunately it doesn't look like i can do much at work with my limited connection. I'm out at a remote location with my signal jumping from GPRS to 3G and every time i try to download a theme it times out.

    It does seem rather intuitive though but I'll have to wait till I get home to dive into it. Also themer acts as a launcher so you have to set to default.

    .... Finally got a chance to play with it and I'm very impressed. It literally is just "one click"

    It is very cool. I'm running paranoid android underneath and I'm using the pie controls to navigate around so I don't lose some of the android functionality that I'm used to.

    Sounds very cool.

    I gotta wait for my code. Bummer.

    So, can you undo things? Like I have my phone set up the way it is now... I use Themer to try a one-click theme. If I don't like it, can I revert my phone back exactly to the way it was before (icons, home screens, widgets, wallpapers, etc)??

    Yep, yep and yep :)

    Themer is just a launcher. I went back to Nova as my default until I get a chance to really dig into it

    Only problem like kiltedthrower mentioned above, themes are limited. All in all, I counted a total of 45 themes but I assume they'll increase over time.

    I mean it can't be easy to put together an entire custom theme like these

    Yep you can undo :). Its just a launcher, simply go back to Sense or Nova and everything will be as you left it.

    Where are you in the queue? How many in front of you?

    *edit* I just checked and I've now got 93k in front of me. That's dropped from 108k yesterday, so quite a drop overnight. I wonder if they've increased pushing out the codes? 2 days ago when I signed up, I had 109k in front of me and it only dropped by 1k overnight. Now it's dropped by 15k. Seems they've accelerated.

    Yeah, I think it's weird and random. I saw a guy post on google+ that he was 16,000 in line the day before and it dropped to 1. Good luck. I can't check my position without an android phone right? I signed up but don't have any android devices at the moment.

    I haven't been on the website they link to on the Play Store, so I'm not sure if you can check there. I typically just check in the app itself, as it has a "line" button that once you tap it shows you your place.
