More Tinkering with the Zello Experience
I just used the Overlays app again to make a new custom layout for Zello - this time, it takes up the full screen.
- If you missed the last time I posted about creating a custom zello screen using Overlays, check it out here: 5/2/2018: Is This a Custom Zello Rom?
The downside of making a full screen one like this is you can't see the zello users or history while you're talking. The other problem is you can't change channels either.
However, I set it up to appear when I long press the Home button. It also disappears when I long press the home button as well. So if I need to access Zello real quick, it's not a problem.
Besides, it's worth the trouble just to have the meters, as well as the large PNR image with the sound meter inside of it.
Also, about the green button you see there: it only turns green when someone in channel is keying up and talking. It turns red when I transmit.
To see it in action, check out the videos below. Best if you watch them in full screen.
