A desktop for bugtesting apps.

Major update, completely re-worked the wallpaper, added about 60 layers of reflections and shading, and a Media Button widget.

I've also swapped the default gallery app for QuickPic, which easily lets you choose which folders to scan and saves you having to put a .nomedia file in every folder you don't want to show up.

Using LauncherPro with Desktop Visualizer, Folder Organizer, SwipePad (for main shortcuts and phone functions), Elixir 2, and Brightness Level and NetCounter for widgets.

From the top, left to right;

The tab shows the number of running apps, and opens the app manager to view app-specific RAM usage, close running apps etc. Time and date open clock and alarms, and the WiFi symbol in the right corner opens NetCounter which gives data usage stats (and an alert when close to the monthly allowance).

Next row is storage, (internal, sd and external sd) which open more in-depth storage stats.

Just under storage on the far left is the new Media Button, which pauses/starts any active player. Add a custom theme by creating a folder named 'themes' containing your zipped png's in a folder named 'com.github.mediabuttons', which goes in Android -> data. Your theme should then show up in the options when you add a Media Button widget.

RAM and CPU chips both display usage, CPU opens running processes (RAM opens RAM usage stats) and to the left of the CPU is the Brightness Level widget.

To the right the LED's show battery level (which open battery stats), and battery temp is shown above. The flash indicates charging.

Under the battery the speaker symbol mutes/unmutes (wire crossing it means it's on mute).

Bottom left hand corner goes straight to phone on press, or recent apps (gesturing up), running up from the home button brings down notifications (allowing one-handed use) and bottom right corner opens Dolphin HD on press or bookmarks on gesture.

Handcent is the most customiseable text app I've found, and it plays nice with other apps (unlike GoSMS).

As I'm right handed I've configured SwipePad to run with my most important phone functions on the right hand side, again so I can use the phone one-handed. Another major bonus of using SwipePad is that it's accessible from anywhere (even in other apps), so you can instantly go from one app to another without having to go via home. SwipePad screenshot showing custom folders/icons.

I use WidgetLocker for the lockscreen, with HD Widgets and Elixir 2.

For security I use Visidion Applock Plus to lock settings, internet, email and market with face recognition. It also has liveliness detection, so it can't be fooled with a photo.

Kind Regards,

If anyone wants it, the wallpaper is in the download

I have tried something like this a couple of times. With zero success. This is amazing! Best of its kind I've seen.

By far one of the best (and deepest) home customizations I have seen. Great work!
