The Marvel Comics Home Screen

Just in case you weren’t satisfied with Marvel in every movie theatre, news feed and piece of merchandise on the planet, this design puts classic comics from the superhero behemoth right on your home screen.


The Sharp-Dressed Earth Desktop

Windows: Thomas over at Flickr combines one of my favourite wallpapers with some smart widgets and music playback controls to create a workspace that’s probably as much fun to use as it is to look at. Here’s how he set it all up.


The Midsummer Night's Desktop

Linux: This beautiful Arch Linux desktop takes us down to the beach. Our friend dobbie03 submitted it, and here’s how he made it.


The Sepia Tone Home Screen

Android: If your giant phone blasting your face with bright light every time you turn on your home screen is displeasing, you might like this design. Employing a subdued, sepia scheme, this design is easy on the eyes, even with an AMOLED display.


Disable Pocket Integration In Firefox To Save Memory

FlowHome Turns Your Android Home Screen Into A Useful, Personal Stream

Android: If you’re a little tired of your phone’s default launcher, FlowHome is an alternative that puts favourite apps a tap away. It also transforms your home screen into scrolling tiles of useful information, updates from inside your favourite apps, and its notifications come with as much information as they need to be useful.


The Expandable Home Screen

Sometimes, less is more. Today’s home screen keeps it simple with an open home screen with room to breathe. Swipe right and you’ll get an overlay packed with minimal widgets.


The Navigator's Desktop

Windows: Reader salt_and_pepper submitted this beautiful, functional desktop to our desktop showcase. A few widgets on the side and room to work on the left, and it’s all done. Here’s how it was made.


The Blurred Cards Home Screen

Android: Cards are a great interface element that brings related information together, but they don’t all have to be the same boring white, right? This design sorts your home screen’s important info into soft, eye-pleasing cards.


The Eclipse Desktop

Windows: Reader Pushkar put together this stark but open and clean desktop in just a few minutes with a couple of easily-configured components. Here’s how he did it.
