Custom Wallpaper


beautiful homescreens


to build your own

This is the final version of my Google Now-esque homescreen. This setup is unique because it only utilises Apex (Free) and a Wallpaper for the basic setup. I have customised it myself by adding widgets and whatnot. Questions welcome. Enjoy.

    Yeah of course. Would you like the Apex settings and the lockscreen wallpaper as well?

    Very nice! So clean and simple, and very easy on the eyes.

    also did you make this file yourself? Any chance of the psd for resizing to fit Galaxy S3!

    What are the settings for Minimalistic Text to get the clock like yours? Can’t figure it out.

    It is a custom layout in Minimalistic text. Just add the “Hour (12h)”, then “Static Text”, “Minute (2digits), then “AM/PM”. For the static text put “:”.

    And the size of the widget you used? Mine keep coming out much too small :-)

    Uhm if you use Apex or Nova, you should be able to enable “resize all widgets” and you can resize it as you wish.
