Show Off Your Home Screens Day!


It has been a few months since we last asked to see the masterpieces that you have created on your Android phone’s home screen.  Being a Thursday in between device releases, we thought this was the perfect time to see what you have cooked up.  The ADW icon packs, GO Launcher themes, and ROM skin options seem to be growing by the day, so please “Wow!” us.  We are always on the hunt for home screen inspiration – no better place to get it than from all of you.

Instructions:  When you drop your comment, feel free to give us some detail on what you went through to get to your current setup.  Launcher, icon pack, theme, apps, widgets, etc.  And to post up a picture, all you need to do is upload to somewhere like PhotoBucket or Flickr and then paste the image URL.  Our comment system will then turn it into an image preview for all to see.

My setup (left screenie):  GO Launcher EX, Clee 2 theme, Clockr Evolution, Whiteout wallpaper pack, hidden CircleLauncher.

Tato setup (right screenie):  LauncherPro Plus, LightGrid live wallpaper, Clockr, RaidZero Purple NRG theme.

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    How did you get just the app drawer on the dock? I deleted the Apps from the dock, but the plus signs are still there, staring at me. (Same setup as you, go launcher etc.) Also, how do you hide the circle launcher icon? Thanks amigo

    • Kelly

      In LP anyway you can assign a transparent icon ( custom launcher icons has one I believe )

    • Miguel

      You have to click on the plus and there should be an option for it to be blank at least in GO.

  • Ebwan

    Sorry to ask……… but what is the clock on the new image on the right?

  • I wanted to send you this very little observation in order to say thanks a lot over again for your personal breathtaking advice you have provided in this case. It’s certainly pretty open-handed of people like you to present extensively exactly what a lot of folks could have sold as an ebook to earn some bucks for their own end, and in particular given that you might well have tried it in the event you desired. These thoughts additionally worked to become a easy way to fully grasp that other people have the same fervor just as my very own to learn good deal more concerning this issue. I am certain there are many more enjoyable sessions up front for many who read carefully your site.

    • Do you have a link for the mtpref on the minimalist text clock? I had one very similar at one point and can no longer find it.

  • The Setup:
    The phone is a Rooted Droid 3 using a basic metamorph theme to get the stock GB notification bar.
    The launcher is ADW with no icon pack (except I’m using a couple of the icons from the Faenza pack for folders).
    The clock is stock beautiful widgets.
    The wallpaper is this photo I took a couple years ago: 

    The last icon on the dock is actually an ADW quickfolder holding my messaging apps.


    EDIT: I’m not sure why, but at least for me the screenshots seem a bit washed out.


    P.S. – for a while I was workin on a app to catalog these… lost free time. Someone else should definitely do this.  People could vote up and down different screens. People could share what backgrounds, widgets, clocks, roms , and whatever else the use.
