Theme Tester Update to v1.2

I updated and published Theme Tester in the Play Store. The new update brings several changes. First, the "concepts" screen is replaced by the "More Apps" screen, where you can see other apps made by me. Next, I removed the theme options in the "preferences" page, but I kept some sample items in there. The theme options were faulty and didn't work right and had to be removed. I also removed my custom action bar (and split action bar) backgrounds so that themers can preview their backgrounds without mine interfering. Here's a quick peek at what is being updated in the app.

Legacy Weather Update v1.3

I know it has been a while (probably too long) since I last updated the Legacy Weather app. This latest update is purely cosmetic. I made new icons for the Thunder Timer and the SPC Maps. I drew inspiration from Iron Man's J.A.R.V.I.S. UI and the NanoSuit2's HUD. Combine those with ICS colors straight from the design guideline color pallets, and the new icons took shape. I also removed the lightning background from the Thunder Timer while it's landscape. It didn't look good with it being skewed and distorted. I improved the tablet layout by increasing the font size and button size so that it doesn't look so tiny. I will hopefully (since classes are out now) be able to do the full rewrite that I had planned a while back. This rewrite will make use of support fragments that way it maintains compatibility with previous Android versions. Let me know what features you would like me to add. What would you guys like from this app?

Here's come screenshots:
