WHY WE LOVE THIS LOOK:
It’s all the stuff we want and need from a home screen – a clean design with minimal distraction, and just enough details to keep us from opening apps. Rather than use folders with a handful of games or apps, the links look much sharper across the center. The wallpaper used here looks like something Google would use however just about anything should feel good. Best of all, the three apps used to get this look are totally free and offer tons of customization.
