This week’s featured home screen comes from reader Step666, who incorporates his icons into the wallpaper for a very cool effect.
Step666 runs down the tools that make it happen:
- The launcher is VTL, an ADW spin-off.
- The wallpaper, I have to be honest and say I can’t remember where I found it. If anyone knows, please tell me and I’ll add credits.
- The icons are all from LauncherPro Icons and are embedded in the wallpaper (pasted in using GIMP).
- Desktop VisualiseR with a transparent PNG for the Browser and Facebook icons.
- SMS Unread Count with the same transparent PNG for the SMS and Gmail counters/shortcuts.
- SiMi Folder (again with the transparent PNG) for the games folder.
- Minimalistic Text for the clock and battery widgets.
- The lock screen features the same unknown wallpaper without the icons embedded in it but with the same two Minimalistic Text widgets and a custom Sense-style slider of my own making using Widget Locker.
