Fun with Sweeter Home: an ultra-personal theme for Android home screens

Sweeter Home is one of my favorites Android apps. Were it not for the app’s lag and force close issues, I would have included it in the 50 Best Android Apps list. Those problems should be addressed in Sweeter Home 2, but I wanted to toy around with creating a few themes right now. Below are two videos of themes I created – Big Blue 2009 and Busy Body.

Busy Body

Busy Body is my favorite creation so far. Designed to replicate the desk of a disorganized fellow such as I, this Sweeter Home theme incorporates every element of the wallpaper I created and serves as a springboard for different types of apps. Take a look at this video for more.

Interested in using this theme? Download the Androinica-dotcom-BusyBody file and copy the file contents to your SD card. I have included a .psd file in case you want to load PhotoShop and change icons, rearrange images, or add your own photos.

Big Blue 2009

Big Blue 2009 is less complex than BusyBody. It’s based on the springboard styles of Sweeter Home Skins and geared towards New York Giants fans.

Interested in using this theme? Download the Androinica-dotcom-BigBlue2009 file and copy the contents to your SD card. If you are not a New York Giants fan and want to create something geared toward your favorite franchise, search resource websites for wallpapers, icons, and images to use in your theme.
