home screens

The Noir Dark Home Screen

Widgets are useful for getting quick information without opening an app. This design skips the icons entirely and gives you the info you need in a dark, old-timey home screen.


The Mosaic Home Screen

Android: Ask any Windows Phone user and they will tell you that square tiles are a great way to launch apps. But have you ever considered how much better they’d be at a 45 degree angle? Today’s home screen answers that question.


The Streets Of NY Home Screen

Android: Anyone who has ever walked the streets of New York City has felt the movement and energy of the city. Today’s home screen aims to capture a bit of that with some stark contrast and intense angles.


The Wilderness Home Screen

Android: It couldn’t hurt to get outside once in a while, right? Well, maybe tomorrow. Today, you can try out this home screen design, called “Wilderness” which features small, information-dense widgets surrounded by open, airy images of the great outdoors.


The Glass Circles Home Screen

For a simple look, My Color Screen user Avinash Barua created this design which features Dashclock-like widgets, peppered with large, eye-catching circles to denote important information or start common tasks.


The Floating Cards Home Screen

If old cartoons taught us anything, it’s that monochrome colour palettes go pretty well with a dash of red. My Color Screen user JRS takes this approach with today’s home screen design.


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.
