The Andro-Metro Home Screen

The Andro-Metro Home Screen

Lifehacker reader MortemTuam takes a feature-filled Android ROM and makes it quick and simple with a beautiful Windows Phone 7-based theme for Android.

The goal of this home screen, besides Windows Phone-level simplicity, is just plain beautiful images, colours, and fonts. Here’s how he put it together on his rooted Samsung Captivate:


  • I did something similar at one stage. The big downside to this is that if the phone lags you see the normal theme or in the case of the notification bar, when you drag it down it changes to the default themes bar.

    All in all a good illusion, but like putting a Mercedes logo on a Porsche, and having it change back when you accelerate. It becomes annoying.
