Show Off Your Home Screens Day!


With the holidays quickly coming to an end and with many of you picking up new devices as presents, there are probably plenty of big beautiful home screens out there that are in dire need of makeovers. And also, since the Galaxy Nexus hit and this on-screen button thing is throwing some of us for a loop, we need inspiration from the greatest Android community on the planet. And to get that, it’s time for one of our now-famous “Show Off Your Home Screens!” posts. It has been a while since we put together one of these, so let’s see what kinds of masterpieces you have created over the last couple of months.  



1.  For those with the Galaxy Nexus, you can take screenshots by press in Power and Volume Down at the same time and holding for 2-3 seconds.
2.  For those without a G-Nex, you can either screenshot in adb or root and use Screenshot ER.
3.  Once you have a screenshot, upload it to your favorite image hosting site and paste the URL that ends with the file name (.png, .jpg, .gif, etc.) into the comments and your image should be loaded for all to see.

And if you can’t get enough of Tato’s rainbow bacon, feel free to download it below:

    How do you create folders on the GNex??? Havent figured that one out yet…

    • grrrr

      drag one icon on top of another to create a stack (folder). click the folder to see whats in it, and click the name to rename it. the first app in the stack will be the folder icon

      Just drag one icon on top of another.  It automatically creates a folder. then you can rename it

    My lock screen and 3 home screens, i wanted to make a minimal home screen with as little additions as possible to increase resource use on the phone.

    Wallpaper is from liberty3 2.0 for Bionic
    Status Bar is modified using liberty settings
    Widgets and launcher is LauncherPro+
    Dock icons are from Minimalist Black and the widget skins are MinimalBread LPP
    Lockscreen is Widgetlocker with ICS Negative

    • http://twitter.com/TubbyMofo Marcus Villabrille

      What skin pack for LP+ is that?

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Oh my. One of the best I’ve seen today.

      not a huge fan of putting basically nothing on your home screen but cool i guess

      • Anonymous

        See, I am the exact opposite. I like nothing on my home screen. If I need something, I simply hit the app tray. But I guess we are two different minds! I prefer form over function (I minored in multimedia / graphic design ), guess where that comes from!

        • John

          Yep, this is why I love Android. You can make it however YOU(the user) want it.

      dude, that clock… where?

    • Anonymous

      Nice. What ROM is that?

    • http://twitter.com/redbullcat Phil Oakley

      Right, I’m gonna guess here:

      Galaxy Nexus
      ADW EXWidgetlocker

      But no idea on the clock…could you link us to it?

      • Anonymous

        oh yes ADW … I haven’t used that in a long time.

      clockkkkkk! where!!!! wallpaper! where!!!!! chick with wetness!!!! where!!!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      I very much like the minimal homescreens.  How did you get the battery info widget to overlap the clock widget.  It saves a bit of space while allowing the widgets to both be of easily readible size.

    Other than post my home screen (it’s just way too plain compared to everyone else’s home screens), I would like to say that I really enjoy reading the comments from other users asking about the widgets, icons, etc. It helps me customize my phone and I get to see a bunch of cool apps and designs. Thanks everyone who posts and comments!
