Show Off Your Home Screens Day! [August 2014]

Home screen - 2

Having received quite a few requests for this post, here is your chance to show off your beautiful home screens to our community. Home screens can be an ever-evolving feature of your smartphone, and with new icon packs and wallpapers being released daily, there is no doubt that your device’s look has changed since the last time we did this in February.

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. If you might need a little inspiration, check out our icon pack posts


Home screen - 2

Kellen is running Nova Launcher with the Elun icon pack. The wallpaper is a live wallpaper called SpinIt, and the clock widget is a skin from the pack Zooper by Beard. Those skins can be used with the Zooper Widget app.

I am running Nova Launcher with the FlatDroid icon pack. The wallpaper is from the Behang wallpaper pack, and the clock widget is called Timely.

    Simplicity is key. I have my 9 most used apps in square formation. The icon pack is Lumos. I am using nova launcher on a Galaxy S5. My phone, messages, browser, and camera are in the sliding dock and are hidden at all times. I chose a background that has shapes instead of being only gradient because the sharp edges compliment the icon pack. If I were to have round apps I would go with an only gradient background. (For a round icon pack I recommend using Cryten) if you want the wallpaper just ask for it and I will post a link.

    • itsacardigan

    My phone is a red Droid Ultra. Reviewers said it is a cold, soulless black slab of a computer, so what’s the opposite – a computer with real personality: … HAL. 9000


    – Nova Prime Launcher
    – Wallpaper homemade from a Deviant art image.
    – Clock widget where “HAL 9000″ should be at top is by UCCW. I padded the minutes with two zeros so it matches HAL 9000.
    – Icons:Serious Crazy Red 62 for the dock (search xda), and for now I’m using Carbn Red for app icons.
    – Unseen in the screen shot, but I use Circle Launcher with a transparent icon, set over the HAL eye. It comes up with 8 shortcut icons in a circle when tapped.
    – the 2001/HAL style data display boxes on the left are direct dial icons for my most frequent numbers, by Desktop VisualizeR.
