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!

      whats the lockscreen app called?
       

      • Patrick H

        It’s Widget Locker, and the slider theme is from XDA. It’s one of the MIUI themes.

      I know how some people bash on the IOS,jobs and etc. But I’m still an android OS fan, don’t get me wrong I’m using an iPhone, honestly I never had used the phone before, so I couldnt bash on it. I first smartphone was and OG droid! And I loved it and consider still it still one of the best phones out there.
      So why post a screen of my iPhone 4 screenshot?
      I considered myself as one the first and many other readers out there to follow droid life! And still do!
      Just love to see and show others screen shots!

      Srry for grammar!

    Stock News/weather widget
    Regular wifi/bluetooth widgets (any will do)

    As you can see there is no “Internet/browser” icon, that’s because my bookmarks are my way onto the internet. 

    -I run Lookout for security

    -For GoLauncher I keep it simple, no weird transitions.
    Swipe finger up to view all screens
    Swipe down to open app drawer

    -Total of 5 screens – mostly made up of “picture frames” (folder and app organizer are wayyyy useful!)

    -I also have overclock set to underclock when in sleep mode.

    -I use Shapewriter for my portrait keyboard (shapewriter was the original FlexT9.  It is similar to swype but better IMO.  When I feel like it, I will buy FlexT9….respond to me if you want Shapewriter – it has been taken off the market and you can side load it.  Works on just about every phone I’ve shared with.)
    -Thumb keyboard for landscape 
    -I use “keyboard manager” for auto switching (need root – from XDA)

    Selecting the digital clock will bring up my alarm clock options
    Selecting the calendar will show me my agenda starting from today (stock HTC calendar)
    Selecting Moon Phase will show me the moon phases of the month and the dates with trivia about a random moon.

        I found it on deviantART years ago. It’s called “wallpaper tattoo” by “krispilandia”, that’s really all I know about it. The wallpaper is the first thing people always ask about.
