Show Off Your Home Screens Day!


We have been receiving lots of requests to host a “Show Off Your Screens Day!” lately. So, let’s do this. Many of you have been upgrading phones, buying tablets then pimping them out, so we know you have some awesome designs you want to share with the community. If you’re more into the stock feel, these posts will also help inspire you and show you everything your Android device is capable of. 

For those new to this ongoing segment of ours, these are the simple rules:

1.  Take a screen shot of as many of your screenshots as you’d like.
2.  Upload them to your favorite image hosting site.
3.  Paste the direct image URLs in the comments. (Image URLs ending in .gif or .jpg or .png)
4.  Then be sure to list out your setup (apps, wallpapers, icon set, etc.)

Here are some of the best sites to look for inspiration:

    I use Trey Ratcliff pictures, HD Widgets on my Galaxy Nexus. I like it clean and simple, with BB.

  • BestonMars

    Been flipping back and forth between these two screens.

    • JDHokie

      I’m going with the Pie single-screen setup for now too. I modified the wallpaper though to fit more of what I need.

    • keithsmith22

      What is the circular widget you are using?

      • BestonMars

        The two lines on the inside are a clock widget from UCCW. The rest is all part of the wallpaper.

    • motothumper

      I love this

    • Mason Lammers

      Can you post an image of your background with the circular widget? Loving your set up and wanting to replicate it.

      • http://twitter.com/Gergle_Gerg Greg Humlicek


        • Mason Lammers

          Heard that!

      • BestonMars

        Here is the wallpaper that I used. Also if you want to replicate it, I would use this link. This guy laid it out very nicely on how to do it, and provided links to download everything for UCCW and what not. The lockscreen is really nice that accompanies the setup as well.


      • cizzlen

        Pie UI? You can search for it on youtube. I believe it’s called how to customize my android phone like a boss or something along the lines of that. Happy customizing :)

    • cizzlen

      Can you post links to the icon pack used in the 2nd screen? Beautiful setup. I used to have the Pie UI myself :)

      This season of Dexter is so damn good! 😛

      • Buckeyes1212

        This season of Dexter has been alright. Not even close to seasons 1-4 though. Currently, I am more interested in Homeland. Hopefully things will pick up in Dexter though.

        • zUFC

          Breaking bad has them all beat!!!!! best show on TV. I actually think best show ever made. If you don’t watch it, start. Trust me!

      • zUFC

        How the hell did you know that was Dexter? Is that Deb in the pic? I’m a Dexter nut and I couldn’t tell.

        • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

          On the left side screenie, he has a Dexter icon on top. I don’t think that’s Deb or anything. I just saw his Dex icon :)

          • zUFC

            Oh yes!!!!! Good eyes Tim. I’m an idiot. But it does look a little like Deb (if you try)

    • ChuckDz3

      This is by far the best one posted today. Very clean and elegant, well done. Do you post on JustReveal? If not, you definitely should.

      • In2uition

        Thank you. I don’t post on JustReveal, but I’m familiar with the work of most of the authors. I didn’t know I can join that blog, I’ll definitely look into it.

  • Haas Mah

    here is mine with my additional google now type icons in the shot…super functional for me, minimalistic widgets, aokp m1, nova launcher, gtasks widget, some hidden icons on the sides and what not, just set the icons to full transparent

    Most of the words on the screen show the widgets (Amazon MP3, Pandora, Retro Camera, etc.). Wife opens a direct message shortcut to my wife.

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

      Shortcut that just says “Wife” cracks me up. Is that shortcut to call her or her contact?

      • Joshua and Bristol Kantor

        direct text message

    • Booyah

      Good stuff.

  • Droid Burgundy

    Man these types of threads make me feel old-fashioned.. I still rock the same setup since my HTC G-1 days… 3 home screens, and use launchers everywhere instead of shortcuts/icons. HAvent used any sort of dock in my launchers etc either since using the Gnex.

      I’m like you. 4 home screens packed with Widgets, apps and folders. These threads always make me feel so boring.

      • Droid Burgundy

        functionality > beauty

        IMHO… I use wave launcher, AOKP navbar mods + lockscreen mods + Google now launch mods etc + circle launcher…. I am all about accessing everything with just one thumb… I don’t like fumbling through my screens or using crazy gestures!

      • summit1986

        It’s supposed to be 92% battery i think

      What icons are these?

      • JoshGroff

        The default ones in JBSourcery. I thought they were awesome enough to leave stock.

        • Captain_Doug

          Definitely so. Now I have to find out what JBSourcery is…

          • JoshGroff

            Oh, it’s a custom ROM for the G-Nex. (Not sure which other devices they support.) But yeah, my bad, should have probably mentioned that.

          • Captain_Doug

            No worries. I’ll go a hunting. I love the hunt.

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

      Wow, that looks really nice. How are you accessing apps? Gesture?

      • http://jordanhotmann.com/ Jordan Hotmann

        Home button opens the drawer. Also the plus sign in the top right has links to folders with my favorites, social, camera/images stuff, and files. I have some gestures setup to open Google Now, tasks, and agenda. Clicking the time in the top left will open alarms, and clicking the date will open calendar.

        So it looks really simple, but I can get to anything I need in very little time and few taps.

    • John

      I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t understand why you need them labeled like that. The icon seems self sufficient imo.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=506302943 Audrey Kuchinski

      Very clean; love it!

    • http://twitter.com/sparty569 sparty569

      Is that Phone/Message/Email built into CM10, Apex or is it a widget?

      • http://jordanhotmann.com/ Jordan Hotmann

        Well the words, icons, and thin lines are actually on the wallpaper, then I have Desktop Visualizer widgets on top of them that use a clear .png as its image.
