Last Updated: January 3rd, 2012

Creating an aesthetically pleasing home screen for your phone or tablet has become an art in itself, and an entire ecosystem packed with widgets, themes, wallpapers, launchers, and custom ROMs has built up to support it. Sometimes, it can be tough to find a winning combination of elements to create a beautiful and enduring home screen that provides both form and function.

For this reason, we have decided to open up a call for gorgeous, well-decorated home screens of all shapes and sizes. Each month we will select the very best home screen configuration(s) and completely break it down into its component parts, providing you with all the necessary information to create your own awesome home screen.

Of course, the creator(s) behind the winning home screen(s) will also be rewarded -- with an Android Police t-shirt of their choosing.

How to Win

This contest is now closed. Please keep an eye out for this month's Home Screen Challenge for your next chance to win!

The rules for this contest are very simple.

Step 1: Upload a screenshot of your home screen to imgur. If you have more than one screen upload a max of 3 pages.

Step 2: Post a link in the comments, and add the name of the ROM you are using (if any), the name of the custom launcher (if any), a list of all your widgets, a list of all the apps in your notification bar, and the name of your wallpaper. You can add whatever other information you feel like, but be sure to provide links to everything.

Update: If you get the "spammy error" upon submission, post your deets on either G+ or Facebook and link to that in the comments. Our Spam filter is pretty aggressive, so this is the best solution for the time being. We will try to find a better submission system before next month.

The winner(s) will be selected by the AP team and notified prior to the publication of the monthly feature.


The monthly home screen challenge is open to all users, but in order to receive a free t-shirt, you must live in one of the following countries:

  • Argentina
  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Korea (Republic)
  • Luxemburg
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Portugal
  • Puerto Rico
  • Singapore
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

Example A - Tablet

To start things off, we've decided to provide a couple of examples of what the monthly home screen break down will look like, using a fairly basic configuration.



The first widget we see here is one of my personal favorites, Beautiful Widgets, available from the Android Market for $2.89. The clock skin is called Naked Honey, and the weather skin is called Vos Neon, both of which are available for download from Beautiful Widgets' interface.

Next up is Honeycomb's standard Bookmarks widget, which displays a scrollable list of thumbnails for webpages you've bookmarked.

Finally, we have a basic calendar widget, appropriately named Simple Calendar Widget. It's a super clean, non-invasive widget that tells you the date, as well as the week's scheduled events. Best of all, it's available absolutely free from the Market.


The wallpaper pictured is called Wave Live Wallpaper. It's a simple LWP, featuring soft, undulating waves, and customizable colors. The speed of movement is completely under the user's control, and ranges from imperceptibly slow to extremely quick, making it a versatile wallpaper that can be as busy (or as unobtrusive) as you choose. It, too, is available for free from the Android Market. There is also a "full version" available, which gives the user the option of vertical waves, periodic color shifts, or shake-based color shifts, adding an extra touch of versatility for a modest $1.00 fee.

Example B - Smartphone

SC20111004-110716 SC20111004-110733


The widget on top of Home Screen 1 is called Fancy Widgets and it basically combines a clock, calendar, and weather information into a 4x1 bar. The free version limits you to one widget style and for $2.99 you get more customization options.

The second widget on Home Screen 1 is simply the widget that comes with Google Reader. I like to stay on top of all the breaking tech news, so I have created a widget out of this specific folder.

Home Screen 2 is occupied by a large 4x2 widget which features my currently playing track. This widget comes with PlayerPro Music Player, which I find to be a fantastic alternative to the stock music player. The trial version of PlayerPro lasts for 7 days, after which you must pay $4.50 for the full version.

Finally, on Home Screen 2 I have a widget of my currently playing podcast. This widget comes with the DoggCatcher Podcast Player, which costs $6.99 and is a great way to listen to all your daily podcasts.

Notification Bar

There are two items in my notification bar. Firstly, I use the Battery Indicator notifier to have an exact gauge of my phone's remaining battery life.

Secondly, the cross-platform IM app Trillian, places an icon in the notification bar.


I like to keep things simple and dark, so I am using a black painted fence as my wallpaper.



I am using the default Samsung TouchWiz launcher.

Your Turn

Now that you've seen a quick, basic example of how each month's feature will look, start designing your perfect home screens and show us what you've got!

  • Jaymoon

    These are my current home screens:


    SenselessROM for Evo3D is my ROM of choice at the moment. Using the speedy GoLauncher as my launcher, providing me smooth transitions, and my pretty little dock. Phone, SMS, App Drawer, Twicca, and Ninesky Browser, are my dock shortcuts...

    My left screen is my "Shortcut Screen". My most used apps are on this screen, and organized in a way that I can quickly get to them. It also has my quick toggle buttons courtesy of the Go Switch widget.

    The center screen I like to keep nice and organized. My calendar of upcoming events using Smooth Calendar is to remind me of what I'm supposed to be doing. The time and quick weather is at the bottom thanks to Minimalistic Text.

    The right screen is mainly used for media. Shortcuts to my music, audio streams, and other ways to consume music. Weather is on display too, using the Fancy Weather widget. Also my task-killer, just in case I need to close down an un-cooperative app.

    Usually when I need them, I'll sometimes add a music widget, or Pocket Casts widget, but thanks to the notification bar, I don't need those all the time.

    • bringtherain

      I love the black and orange skin on the Go Switch widget. What is it called?

      Awesome homescreen

      Very nice. Informative and functional, yet still manages to keep a clean look. I dig it.

      What clock is that?

  • Jesus Otero

    I am using CM7.1 Stable running adw EX. My design is very simple, just shortcuts to my necessary apps with a transparent background behind them made using a blank Minimalistic Widget widget lol. The clock, day, and battery percentage are also made using Minimalsitic Widget along with the 'Swipe up to access apps.' sign since I hid my launcher. I found my wallpaper when I tried out a nnew launcher that changed my wallpaper and decided to stick with it. I do not remember what launcher it was, but will post back if I find anything. In my status bar I have the USB notification and EasyTether as I tether my Linux laptop. Thank you for reading, I hope I'm lucky enough to win! :D

    T-Mobile G2
    Rom: CyanogenMod 7.1.0 running on Tiamat Kernel

    Theme: Black Granite, one I've been in the process of making for quite some time now. I'm just so busy with work and life in general that I can't find time to finish it. It will be available to the public at some point in time though...

    ADW EX is my launcher of choice. Why? Because It's awesome.
    Main Dock: y0rk's Black Theme
    Icons: Sense ADW Theme

    Main dock has Phone (obvious), App drawer (obvious) and Handcent

    Wallpaper: MultiPicture Live Wallpaper. It's cool because I can have all the wallpapers I've acquired throughout the time I've been with Android and use them at random. Once the settings are to my liking, it's maintenance free. If I don't like the wallpaper it's chosen, all I have to do is double-tap the screen and it changes. I have it set up so it doesn't constantly change the wallpaper but once every 24 hours.

      Hi aaron, I really like the simplicity of your home screen, looks very clean. Nice job.

  • Dan

    I can't post links to the things i used, because it says i am spamming, so i will just tell what they are.

    (album containing both pics)

    First pic is main home screen.

    I use Cyanogenmod 7 with the Androdian theme set. I Have Go Launcher EX with C.Black theme on it.

    The widgets on the first page:(Calendar, Email, Gallery, Camera), (Wifi toggle, Wifi hotspot toggle, 4G toggle), and sound toggle. Plus on the second page: (browser, Gmail, Google+, Market) were made by widgetsoid2.x.

    The clock on the second page was made by Make Your Clock Widget Beta.
    The standard google seach widget is on the second screen also.

    The Screen Filter widget is on the first screen also.

    The dock icon's I made from coloring other theme's icons.

    The background is a pic of me doing a backflip outside, and i think it looks good with a green theme.

    The notification bar includes a notification from AlarmDroid on my next alarm, and the pics were taken by Screen Grabber. I like how Cyanogenmod allows me to see the full battery percent next to the battery indicator.

    some really nice ones out there.

    Stock Gingerbread Rooted

    LauncherPro Plus

    It is bacically a collage of Desktop VisualizeR Widegts each a shortcut to a different applications. The use of widget links allows for the overlaping of the images.

    I have edited the pictures for the links using Pixlr-o-matic to apply different frames and effects.

    The clock is Beautiful Widgets. The clock skin is Honeycomb. The weather skin is Vos-Metallic.

    The dock is from left to right
    -Next screen to the left
    -App Drawer
    -Next screen to the right

    The apps that are launched are:
    (Under the Clock)
    -Music Beta

    (On the page with Facebook)
    -Google Reader
    -Google Maps
    -Root Explorer

    (On the page with YouTube)
    -Battery Status
    -XDA Taptalk App
    -Score Mobile

    There is one other page to the right but it just contains the LauncherPro Plus Calendar Widget with the contrast skin.

    • http://www.gplus.to/8055 hkb

      Well, the shortcut images looks good, but the overlapping spoils it

      • Mike Saunders

        I'm sorry that you don't like it. But I was going for somthing different than the traditional rows or columns of icons. To me this illustrates the possiblities of Android as opposed to say IOS. To each his/her own I guess.

        • dan

          I particularly like the overlapping, and i am looking into the app just for that. :)

    • Dan

      Can you specifically tell me how you got your icons to overlap for each widget? I can't figure it out.

      • Mike Saunders

        Dan, it is by resizing the Desktop VizualizeR widgets using LauncherPro Plus. Also make sure that auto-fit icons option in LauncherPro is off. Then it is just a matter of resizing the widgets and getting a little creative. You will see as you start to change the widget sizes that they will overlap.

    • Carlos Paixao

      Loved it! Can you provide a .zip?

      • Mike Saunders

        A zip of what? The images that I used I could but the rest are parts of LauncherPro and Beautiful Widgets. In addition the organization of the Desktop VizualizeR widgets and their sizes are up to you.

        • Carlos Paixao

          Yes, these images... and if you'll got more cool images like these ones too! Thank you!

      • Mike Saunders

        A zip of the images, both clean and with the effects that I used can be found here.


    • Mike Saunders

      I forgot to mention I set the Homescreen Grid in LauncherPro to 10X10 that will help get the overlap effect.

    Hello All,

    Here is the link to my home screens; there are three:


    Let's start with the top. In the notification bar is the temperature from the weatherbug app. I also have an invisible icon for Perfect AppLock!. The first screen is using the SiMi Clock widget. That is all. I like to keep my main screen clean to show off my background. We'll get to that in a moment. The second screen has one widget as well: Bible Verse of the Day. The third screen has the simple calendar widget and the stock picture frame widget with my beautiful wife :-).

    I rock a Nexus S for Tmobile. I've used so many different launchers including ADW Ex and Launcher 7 (I have layouts for those too), but the annoying thing is that no one can get the 3d app drawer to run as smooth as the hardware accelerated one on the stock launcher. It shouldn't bug me but it does. Now the wallpaper is a custom made one. I loved the episodes with Mint-Berry Crunch from South Park so I found a background with him and cropped him out on a pure black background. The SuperAMOLED is so beautiful when showing (or rather not showing) off blacks. Thanks so much!

    I literally tried to make my TBolt look as much like the Galaxy Nexus as possible. As you can see by my screenshots, I came about as close as one could hope on a Tbolt.

      I also have a CBS News widget and Google Search widget loaded on the home screen.

      How did you get magiclocker to work with CM7? Once I powered off my phone I could'nt get it back on. I ended up using a morph the the ring unlock.

      • New_Guy

        I am using CM7.1 if that matters...I'm not really sure...It just worked for me.

        I did set it as my default lockscreen if that makes a difference.

        • Keith

          Yea i am on CM7.1 also on the at&t SGSII. I have not had any luck with running custom lockscreens with CM7.1. I'm sure there is some setting I am missing, but I found a morph for the ring lockscreen so it's all good now. Thanks for the reply.

    I found this wallpaper by just doing a random google search, and decided it looked cool. The wall paper is called "Colorful Android Wallpapers 03".

    I have tested ADW.Launcher, LauncherPro and Zeam in the past, and have decided that Go Launcher is the best option. It performs faster and isn't plagued by frequent crashes I experienced with ADW.Launcher and LauncherPro. It also is much more customisable in my opinion than the other alternatives, with many unique features.

    I've tried every single launchers out there but I though the stock TW laucher was the best. Only thing that came close was GoLauncher.

    Widgets on screen:

    Days left = Simply amazing, very useful (as a student) and looks stunning on my super AMOLED plus display.

    Goweather/time widget = two in one therefore a must have! no need to have a clock icon.

    PlayerPro = Best music player on android.

    Wallpaper = one of the nexus stock wallpapers.

    I have google agendaon screen no1 but could not show it due to the rules(3 screens)

    sms = GO sms pro with skype
