This is a driving mode homescreen that I adapted from xNiik’s “experimental” theme. Tasker with secure settings is used to swap my launcher to this one while I’m driving.
I use minimalistic text hooked up to tasker variables so that If I have no missed items the notifications don’t showup.
I did a writeup on reddit on how to automate the launcher swaping here:

    Hey it’s awesome but how do you hide labels that are usually on the top of the screen? The only thing i can do is reduce their size but i can’t find out how to get rid of them.

    Thank you

    This has been bugging me for quite a while now but the wallpaper you provide is just the image. How can you set it on your Homescreen without having to crop out most of the picture. I remember some other wallpapers had black space that was cropped out anyways when you applied as wallpaper. Please help. :)
