Home Screen of the Week – Jason Taylor

April 10, 2014

Another week has gone by, and I’ve spotted some great home screens out there.  There is some really cool stuff going on in the “Zooper: World of Widgets” Google+ community, and that’s where I found this week’s feature, with it’s grungy pixelated goodness.  Check out Jason’s home screen here,


Home Screen of the Week – Kev Alan

March 31, 2014

I think that the minimalism of this home screen works very well with Smart Launcher, and it is an apt start to the home screen of the week. Check out the +Kev Alan’s original post here.


Infinity Clock

March 24, 2014

I’ve been moderately obsessed by making clocks out of infinity symbols for some time. My first one was made using Conky, and I remember it fondly. I’ll see if I can find a screenshot of it, just booting up the Linux machine to check now. So now I’ve made another Infinity Clock with Zooper.  It […]


Shadows on Wood – Smart Launcher Theme

March 18, 2014

This was one of the first Smart Launcher customisations I created, and if I recall correctly, it was the first time that I created a custom Zooper Widget to go with the theme.  It’s a little crude, and there is a lot of room for improvement, but the widget is available in the Android Market, […]


Radical Edward – Smart Launcher

March 14, 2014

If you’ve watched Cowboy Bebop, you’ll know that Radical Edward is awesome.  I made this theme as a reminder that you can have fun while being good at what you do.


BlingNinja Zooper Widget Pack

March 13, 2014

I’ve launched a BlingNinja Zooper Widget Pack, and it is available for free on the Android Market.  The aim is to include all the custom widgets created on this site for easy use by anyone who would like to give them a go. It’s an alpha relase, so let me know in the comments if […]


Smart Google Now Launcher

February 28, 2014

So I gave the Google Now Launcher a little whirl.  I like it, because it’s quick and simple.  That doesn’t mean it’s my favourite launcher, not by a long shot, not yet at least.  The voice search is amazing, but let’s forget about that for the sake of this example. I like the idea of […]


Smart Launcher – Framework for Creativity

February 21, 2014

When I say I’ve been using launchers for a long time, it’s no joke – I was using home screen replacements back when people still thought SPB Shell 3D was cool (me included). All kidding aside, when you think about replacing your home screen, there are a couple of factors that come into play.  You […]


Circuitry Theme – First Version

February 19, 2014

Before I did the version of the Circuitry theme mentioned in my first post, I made this darker version.  

Smart launcher theme with a muted palette.

First Post – Smart Launcher Theme – Red and Grey Circuitry

February 18, 2014

I’ve been using to experiment with different things for a while.  Since it looks like this mobile-phone fad is going to last for a while, and I’ve gotten kinda hooked on customisation/theming, I thought I’d use as a blog about customising the look, feel and maybe even behaviour of your phone (if I […]
