N9Appdate: Home Screen Settings (V 1.5.1) – More Wallpaper Features

| May 16, 2012 | 75 Replies

I know, the name is pathetic. If you have a better idea, let me know. Anyway, so I’ve brought to your attention an app called Home Screen Settings. It is truly the greatest home screen hacking tool out! Currently, it can;

  • Unlock/Lock devices orientation
  • Remove the weather widget from events view
  • Show only white text (changing the events and switcher screen to have brighter and more visible text)
  • Change the background of the homescreens to a single image/wallpaper
  • Change background to “Sine Waves” – Dynamic wallpaper like PS3/PSP

Now, the developer has sent me the latest version, currently awaiting Store QA approval. With this version, there are more wallpaper related features. This update brings with it;

  •   A new dynamic wallpaper known as horizon. Update: The Horizon dynamic wallpaper will dynamically change its color
    scheme based on the time of the day
  •  A “glitter” effect on Sine Waves, which looks even more like the PS3 wallpaper, and
  •  Also the ability to have three Images, one for each of the Screens (Events, Launcher, Switcher)

"Horizon" wallpaper. Has a very desert feel to it


"Sine Waves" with "Glitter". Sorry that Glitter is a bit hard to see

This update should be in the store soon.

Cheers Vesuri!
