The Numero Home Screen

Android: Today’s home screen is particularly AMOLED-friendly. While Android goes for a much brighter look these days, this design by My Color Screen user 21macro12 sticks to the dark themes, with only one main strip being the exception.


The Zune Home Screen

Let’s be honest. While it was a bit late to the multimedia party, the Zune product family was doing the minimalist, authentically digital thing before it was cool. If you fancy a bit of nostalgia for those days, this Zune-inspired home screen (dubbed Xune) is for you.


The Glow Home Screen

“Simple with a splash of colour” is a pretty common theme in interface design. This look goes down a traditional path with a distinct flair, going for simple outlines and text on bright backgrounds.


The Grey Scale Home Screen

It may be a bit more colourful than your typical monochrome masterpiece, but Grey Scale is what My Color Screen user Peszec calls this design, which goes heavy on the right angles and (comparatively) light on the colours.


The Flat Colour Home Screen

Like a dying star rushing towards a singularity, mobile design has been collapsing in on itself to form flat design. In that spirit, My Color Screen user Pitoko has created this simple, bright home screen.


The Blurred L Home Screen

Android: While their styles have become more similar lately, Android and iOS are pretty distinct. This home screen design bridges the gap between the two, utilising the frosted, layered themes of iOS, combined with Android’s new material approach for a unique look.


The Purple Home Screen

No, it’s not Ubuntu on a phone, but you’d forgiven for mistaking the similar colour scheme. This design, courtesy of My Color Screen user Vivek S brings a splash of colour to a functional home screen.


The Doodle Home Screen

Sometimes, an attractive home screen is more enjoyable than a tightly organised one. To that end, this design from the Themer app turns your home screen into a doodle board. Every task you need to perform is its own drawing.


The Flat Tiles Home Screen

Single-screen home screens are excellent at getting you to what you need without too many taps. This design from My Color Screen user Pitoko/David does it with flair, employing some eye-catching tiles.


The Serenity Home Screen

Android: With so many notifications and alerts coming through our phones, we could all use some peace and quiet. This design from My Color Screen user 21Marco12 calms things down a bit.
