    Along with the picture should come a description of how to replicate. IE Widgets and custom launchers.

    Specifically, what is that widget in the bottom right corner?

    Here's Mine:
    Beautiful Widgets for clock/weather.
    My own self made background.

    I am using GO Launcher EX, default theme, with the Vortex Galaxy live wallpaper.

    On the top is Elixir 2 Widget.
    Then the toggle widgets (wifi, bluetooth, gps, and airplane mode).
    Then is Google Music.
    On the bottom right is the Circle Battery Widget, the only one I can find to accurately give me a battery percentage to 1 percent. It's normally, white, but it turns a yellow-green when it's being charged, orange when under 30%, then red under 10%.

    I'm getting the runaround from the SDK about installing properly - not going according to instruction in the guide. :( I'll try later when I'm more awake.

    I'm surprised that with 2.3.4 we can't take screenshots. Power+home doesn't turn the thing off, but it doesn't capture either.

    I keep my homepage fairly simple.
    I'm still using the stock launcher as I find it pretty good so far, no lagginess at all.
    Beautiful Widgets , and I grabbed that battery widget previously mentioned. :D

    I was getting the same problem using "Andross." Try "DroCap2," that app has been working for me.

    Thanks! I had not heard of Go Launcher EX, but downloaded it and after checking out this video I learned how to use it! This is AWESOME!

    Yeah, I find that it has tons of features that LauncherPro, or even LauncherPro Plus, does not have.

  15. jr0065

    jr0065 Well-Known Member

    You can change any of the bottom icons, just long press on them.

    Also those same 4 follow through all 5 of the homescreens.Scrolling left to right through all screens and all 4 follow.

    jr0065 Well-Known Member

    Yes, if you click on any of the app icons below in the "add to dock" list that pops up it will replace the icon you just long pressed on.

    Great thread. Thanks for doing this. I love seeing what everybody's done and downloaded. I'm in the process of trying to drain my battery right now and have everything turned on and running, but when I can figure out how to do this, I will contribute mine. But here's a question: WHICH home screen do you wanna see? ;-) I have three configured so far and working on a fourth. And I keep messing with it... and, of course, now that I've seen everyone else's and learned about some cool new apps and widgets, I'm going to mess some more, I'm sure... LOL. Plus, I have to swap two of the pages completely because I want different stuff on the "main" home screen!

    Edit: OK, nevermind. I am not smart or techie enough to do all that SDK stuff. So I probably won't be sharing a screenshot. :-( Too bad. It's cool. LOLOL!

    Nice, sx4dude.

    tesusenoh, I may have to try that circular battery app! Methinks you've started the new trend of the week.

    I've been playing with LauncherPro and Go Launcher, and decided the stock one is what I need. I'm just using Folder Organizer instead.

    I'm definitely a minimalist when it comes to homescreens. I like it simple.

    I'm rooted but still using the stock launcher at the moment. I was using LPP on my OG Droid but so far I like the stock launcher though I do miss my scrolling bar at the bottom.

    I had been using Beautiful Widgets and still do for some of the other widget toggles but I wanted to try something different with the Bionic and so far, I've settled on the Advanced Clock Widget Pro and like the simplicity of it.

    Ok, DroCap2 worked, so here we go, nothing too fancy!


    GO Weather
    Normal Calendar
    Circle Battery Widget

    Top Row L-R:
    Dolphin HD

    Bottom Row L-R
    Normal Dialer

    BTW, I have other crap on other screens, I'll post em in a little bit. Also, I have LTE turned off. I only turn it on when Im out and about and need to D/L something.
