Ok firstly I am running all of this on a Samsung Galaxy S2, running Android 2.3.4 as the OS.
The background is a stock Samsung wallpaper, which is hidden by default in the ROM. You will need to root your phone and put a new ROM on to access this potentially.
I am currently running Cognition v1.15, which you can obtain from the fantastic XDA Developers forum here
The first row widget is Switchpro, available from the marketplace. I am running in a Size 4 configuration with Wifi – Bluetooth – GPS – Sync – Airplane – Data – Sound – Reboot as the options.
The 2nd row is Traffic Counter, an app which monitors not just your data connection but also your SMS, Wifi and voice calls too. You setup your contracts limits and it will keep track of them for you, warning you when near to exceeding them. It is all customisable, alerting you at whatever % you wish to choose.
The 3rd row is the excellent Snowstorm weather application. I find it to be just so reliable, and it takes up a small footprint. Touch the widget and you get a very detailed weather forecast for the week ahead.
The 4th row (which looks like 2 rows) is called More Icon Widgets. This is a must have application that allows you to have 4 icons in the space of 1. This is a superb app!! Just buy it!
The bottom row is a few standard icons.
The launcher bar at the bottom is Go Launcher EX, for which I customised the icons using a theme.
Go Launcher is my prefered Android Launcher, it is free of charge and just brilliant. It is regulary updated, and works well with GO SMS too.
I actually bought LauncherPro, but have since become a big fan of this launcher.
Look out for a list of my apps in the next post…….
