    How is everyone's home screen coming along? I didn't do any kind of crazy custom stuff yet but I'm working on it.

    There is an easier way. Enable motion in the options and swipe the edge of your hand across the screen.

    You can also just click the home and power buttons at the same time and hold until the screen flashes. Eazie Peezie


    What size/resolution does a pic need to be to exactly fit as a background?

    Find a picture you like and download it to your phone. shrink it to 720x1080. Go to the picture in the gallery folder. select the picture and then hit the key to the left of the home button and go down to "Set As". Click "Set As" and then select home screen.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I find that dark images look great as wallpapers.

    Ok hope this works. Anyway, this is a minimalistic launcher, very clean although I've been using the 3D Go Launcher Ex shown in the video above.

    I do phone tech support and they don't like us playing games on our phones so I usually just browse the forums to try and stay calm on the phones :D

    The name of this launcher is Launcher 7. It's supposed to be a Windows Phone type launcher but once you customize a few things and tweak some settings, it becomes its own thing. Very unique and the best thing is that for the icons you just use ANY image from the Internet.

    At first it looks just like a Windows 8 phone, including some live tiles. I changed the icons to 1x1 and choose to have the stock icons replaced by full tile images. All I did was go on the browser and Google images for "phone", "text", etc, just download and replace. But the fun thing is you can get very creative, for example my "Music" icon actually opens up Pandora and the icon itself is a photo of Mike Sprietzer from the band Devildriver.

    Ok, I tried Launcher 7 and within 1/2 hr uninstalled it. I've never had any lag on this phone until then. Every time I touched my phone response time was off by about a 2 sec.
