Some of the most fun we get out of new smartphones lies in the time spent setting them up for our personal tastes. All the major platforms afford one degree of customizability or another, but Android is certainly one of the most versatile canvases around. This past summer, we got a great response when we asked you to share your custom home screen setups with us. If you’ve been wishing your phone looked more like one of those, or are just interested in a change, we found a site you might want to check out, offering a gallery of home screens to explore, and tips on setting them up yourself.
MyColorScreen has been working its way up to nearly 30,000 home screens, and almost all of them are for Android. You can browse through at your leisure, hoping to spot one that catches your eye, or more explicitly sort them based on view count or popularity. A good number of the screens incorporate widgets that complement the wallpapers, and users who have posted these can provide instructions on how to set everything up. There’s also a YouTube channel with some how-tos on getting things configured.
Even if you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person, you might want to think about sharing your own screen with others, and see if it doesn’t end up among the site’s most popular designs.
