Android Homescreens: Easy Monochrome

I found myself a new creative outlet.

You see, I was never a very ‘generic’ person. My stuff, I always need to put my personal stamp on. And that includes my tablet and mobile phone. So, ever since I discovered the joys of Android tweaking and customization, I’ve been learning and really on the roll.

And the great reward is that I get to have a totally ME phone, which is gorgeous and very functional as well. Functional because, I do take time to take into account what I need and what are the things I need fast access to. I also don’t like clutter, so my homescreens are usually easy, organized with just the very basic stuff out front, all the rest of the apps are categorized and hiding in the app drawers.

Lol. You won’t find a random app selling davidoff cigars for sale on my homescreen. The great thing though is that I’m still learning and discovering things. But I just wanna share some homescreens I made on this blog. For sure time will come, I’ll be sharing files for you but for now well have this.. Which I think is a nice improvement from my previously posted summer themed homescreen.

Here’s my homescreen last month. I’m calling it Easy Monochrome. I was feeling really zen like and wanted muted tones and look to my screen. I found this really pleasant. Just a single homescreen, with shortcuts to the apps I frequently use, then tiny dock buttons for some utlities.

Easy Monochrome is a single very minimal homescreen. I used Nova Launcher, UCCW with Elegante Skin for the day and time widget, and icons from Placid Monochrome Theme pack. Wallpaper is from BestWallpapersHD app.

You can check out MyColorscreen for some really awesome homescreen customization. My eye balls almost rolled out of my eye sockets, the first time I discovered the site coz of the pure awesomeness.  Hahaha! I kid you not! Anyway, you can find me there too, I’m using the moniker PurpleMochi.

Tab’s New Home Screen # 3

I decided to make a switch. After that paintbrush/landscape scene on my tablet’s homescreen (see here) , I decided I wanted to have something purple-y! I figured I’ll be tweaking my tablet’s widgets and homescreens every month. You know, depending on my mood and theme I fancy..

So on to purple, blue and something fresh and clean look:

Galaxy Tab 2.0 Tweaked Homescreen

I used Ultimate Custom Widget UCCW with modern skin for the date, and Be Weather Widget. The wallpaper is from BestWallpapers HD.

Tweaked Galaxy Tab 2 Homescreen

I just got myself a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and within hours of getting it, I had been itching to root it. Yes, I’m just really nuts. The only thing that stopped me is that, the thing is still under warranty. BUT what’s really great is that with a little imagination and tweaking here and there you can achieve a totally different look for your tablet/phone.

I really don’t like being generic. Like my deal is just one of those millions, and I have always liked personalized stuff. And that’s what I set out to do, make my tablet look different from the rest. At least the homescreen. So I postponed an afternoon searching for sof sole from bestinsoles.com, and headed over to the playstore to see what apps I could play with to make my Tablet a whole lot prettier and more ME.

Here’s the BEFORE screenshot. The basic Samsung skin..

Samsung Galaxy Tab Default Homescreen

I personally don’t like a lot of icons on my screen. It drives me dizzy. After adding just two widget apps and a wallpaper change, here’s my new AFTER look:

Homescreen 1: default – clean looking. just the way I like it. Weather and time widget. No icons.

Homescreen 2: just widgets for my videos and music player, so I can play them instantly. And shortcut to my most frequently used things. All the rest of the apps are inside the app drawer.

Free Apps used: BestWallpapers HD, Ultimate Custom Widget UCCW (+ Series UCCW Skin), BeWeather & Widgets.

I used the Series UCCW Skin coz I’m a little bit lazy to make my own. hahaha! Alternatively, you can also use Minimalist Text icon maker to achieve the all text widget drama.
