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.

    Mine was heavily inspired by one of the previews for Minimalistic Text.

    Apps used:

    LauncherPro Plus
    Minimalistic Text (donate) + Llama integration
    Simple Text (for icons)
    Circle Battery Widget

    (yes I have redundant battery widgets.  I don’t care)

    Also, swiped docks in each picture to show full layout

        Thanks, I’m really enjoying it!  It’s the beauty of Android, you can completely redesign your phone when you get bored.  That’s what’s keeping me interested!

    ughh I still have to root my Droid 2 now that I finally got gingerbread.  Anyone know of a method to take a quick screenshot without going thru the bother of rooting my phone

  • http://www.coroflot.com/mellerad Adam Meller

    HTC Thunderbolt
    Gingerbread w/ HTC Sense (debloated)

    Unlock Slider: Widget Locker – Minimal Theme
    Battery (Lock Screen): Minimal Text
    Battery (Home Screen): Circle Battery
    AutoSync/Volume Buttons: Extended Controls
    Weather: Beautiful Widgets – Flat White Theme
    Day/Date/Time: Minimal Text

    When looking for Widget Locker themes, I saw a look like this and decided to personalize it myself.

    Still on Sense because I haven’t decided what new ROM I want to flash first.

  • Larry Mao

    You had to ask this while I’m in the office. I have no root, so I have to wait till I get home to post my set up.

      Hello lock screen. Nice.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YRQCGSJ7KH3K5ZHG3GWA43NAZQ Andrew

        Thanks!  I was in an old school gaming kind of mood.  I was so inspired by the phone setup that I also updated my FB status to say “Dear hipsters, I had an Atari when it was modern.”

    • 97

      Can you post the wallpapers?

        For the homescreen, I think I just did a Google image search and modified a screenshot from the game.  The lockscreen was posted on Deviant Art here: http://museick-photography.deviantart.com/art/The-Original-Atari-III-152688858?q=boost%3Apopular%20in%3Aphotography%20atari&qo=183

        As someone that lives in Alabama and born into the SEC i can say that LSU is not that good. They have a good defense and no offense. The freshman for Oregon fumbled twice on their own 30. LSU should never have won.

      how did you customize the power control widget?

        Whoops, seems it’s actually Power Widget, not Power Control. Got the names mixed up a bit. Power Widget is fully customizable.

          I actually need help using widgetlocker, how did you get that slider? I specifically trying to make the slider say “Unlock” :(

          • Anonymous

            You can’t make the slider to say “Unlock”.  You need to download a particular slider that has that.  Just go to XDA or google “widget locker themes”

      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.

  • http://photo.katzmatt.com Matt Katzenberger

    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.

  • http://twitter.com/PhilStout Phil


    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.
