Show Off Your Home Screens Day! [February 2014]

home screen

In the eight months since we last put together a “Show off your home screens day!” post, I’d imagine you have changed things up a time or two on your phone or tablet. With new icon packs, clocks, and wallpapers being featured regularly through our Icons and UCCW series, you should have plenty of options to choose from to make your home screen something special.

Today’s post is like all of the others in that we want to see what kind of magic you have put together. With on-screen buttons becoming more standard and through Kit Kat’s transparent notification and navigation areas, home screens are looking better than ever. At least we think so.

For those new to this concept, this is how it works. Setup your home screen the way you like it, grab a screenshot of it (Power+Volume Down on most phones, Home+Volume Down on Samsung phones), and then upload it through Disqus (comments) along with a description of your apps, launcher, wallpaper, and clock.

Here is a look at all of ours to get you started.

I’m running Nova Launcher with the Cryten icon pack. The wallpaper is from a soon-to-be-released pack called Influx (write-up coming this week). And the clock skin is a Zooper skin called Simple Glass Zooper. That launcher button can be downloaded here.

    Mine panned out inadvertently awesome. Every widget is more or less placed right below the Doha skyline. Plus that blue hue from the building in the middle reflects straight down the middle of the screen in subtle awesome fashion.
