  12. 12. Interaction Customize Settings Screen  6,10,11,12,15,16,17, 33,35,37,38 and 39 active Tap on a hexagon to Change the state - Active - In Active - Ready Ready State Icon can be swaped
  13. 13. Interaction Swap Hexagons Tap on a hexagon to change the state - Active - In Active - Ready Ready State Icon can be swaped with other Ready item (10 and 17 shows two ready items)
  14. 14. Interaction Title / Update  On Touch the top half of the hexagon will show the title  Bottom half will show the updates  If only top half of the hexagon is visible show the Title as shown in the figure (music and video)
  15. 15. Interaction Border & Color  The border width of Hexagons can be customized (Picture shows border gap size of 10 pixels)  Border color can also be customized
  16. 16. Interaction List Tiles  All the Tiles can be listed in horizontal as well as vertical list view
