Revamp Your Home Screen
As I was browsing the web and avoiding the laundry I came across one of the coolest iphone apps EVER! Just look at what this app did to my phone.
To get this beautiful design I used the CoCoPPA app, and the best part, it's available for FREE in the app marketplace. Basically, what this app does is allow you download decorated app buttons (created by others that use the app) and place them on your home screen as a shortcut to the original app. What this means, is you must keep the original Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram etc. App on your phone so that it can store your information still. What I did was create a folder on my last home page and put all of these original ugly apps in there!
My new pretty background is also from the Cocoppa app and I LOVE it! I decided to only do 3 rows of apps on the home screen so you can still see the pretty flowers. I know this is a small change, but it's made a HUGE difference. As someone who is CONSTANTLY on their phone, it's seriously made me happy to look at my phone everyday now.
Another great bonus! Notice how on the "after" photo above, under the apps I have labels like "LOST?" for my maps and "interwebs" for my internet... You can set your own custom titles for the apps. I didn't realize this right away or they would all have fun titles. I just love how you can completely customize your phone with this app and make it super personal!
I checked with my Husband and you can now get CoCoPPA on Android phones! Yay, so now everyone gets to enjoy it!
If you try this out, be sure to take a screen shot and leave it in a comment of your before and after!
