Show Off Your Home Screens Day!

(K, Picolas, and Tato)

Can you believe that it has been something like 3 months since we last had a “Show us your home screens!” day?  Today’s event seems long overdue, so we’re hoping to see some really creative stuff now that there are hundreds of themes and app packs for both ADW and LauncherPro.  We also have a variety of devices that we cover on a daily basis in this Android world including tablets like the Motorola XOOM and Galaxy Tab 10.1 that bring a whole new customization element into the game.  This should be fun to watch.

For those that are new, what we’re asking for is a shot of one or all of your home screens in the comments followed by a little description of the setup.  This is how we share ideas, widgets, clocks, wallpapers, icon packs, themes, etc. with the rest of the DL community.

As you can see up top, we’ve got the 3 home screens of the DL staff – dirty details of the looks will be posted in the comments.

Update: We’ve posted up the wallpapers that we are all using here.

*Note – Taking screenshots can be done by non-rooted users through the Android SDK or with a variety of screenshot apps from the market if rooted..

Show us your home screens!

        I think I stole that from one of the posts on here :-)

    • Frederick

      I’ve seen this a few times…so I have to ask.  How does it happen where the clock widget and time in the status bar aren’t the same?

      • Nathan

        The widget tries to stay in memory, but it gets kicked out on my OG droid from time to time.  Usually when I go back to the screen for a few moments it updates on its own.

        Icons are called VA-Glow or something like that.  Just google it.  They’re supposed to be MIUI inspired.  I think I got them from DeviantArt.

      How do you have different pictures on the different screens.  Do you have to be rooted for that? I have never been able to figure that out on my OG Droid.

      • Anonymous

        I use WidgetLocker for my lock screen.  It allows you to use a separate wallpaper, kinda like MIUI.  I happen to be rooted but I’m not sure if that has any bearing on it.  Didn’t start using it until after I rooted.
