The free or animated desktop feature was introduced to MIUI ROM quite a while ago. It was a fantastic idea to have another free mode desktop over the regular homescreen of a phone. Later MIUI released two beautiful free destop themes, namely Angry Birds Space and Warm Space, as exampls of how this format worked. Unfortunately, the intricacies of the coding did not let the MIUI theme developers dare atempt to make themes with animation. Since now, there were only three to four free desktop themes.
Here is another free desktop theme for MIUI which, I must say, looks best of all themes available so far. My World is a nature inspired theme that contains app and notification shortcuts in a unique way. It looks pretty amazing with the blue sky, floating clouds, windmill, a board with weather info and so on. In one of the screenshots you can see a post pillar-box beside a telephone booth that show you unread message and missed calls notifications.
Download the theme and copy to MIUI>Theme folder on your phone’s SD Card. Apply the theme from the Themes app, come back to the homescreen and swipe two fingers from top to down side to activate the free desktop mode. Swipe two fingers from down to up to return back to normal homescreen.
