I find it difficult to find the right balance between a minimal yet convenient homescreen. I am tweaking constantly. However my current setup is:
ROM: Konstat's Swedish Snow RLS2 with MIUI like battery bar and center clock.
Milocker lockscreen: VA Ice weather theme, customised ( I added the Simi like clock)
Wallpaper: Custom Wallpaper, thanks to David Rumsey Historical Map Collection (www.davidrumsey.com
- Homescreen is just one screen.
Launcher: Launcher Pro Plus with scrollable dockbar ( middle three icons on last picture are Simi folders shortcuts)
Simi Clock widget
Simple Calender widget
I am still looking for a launcher/app drawer that has horizontal scrolling AND folders (currently using Alt Drawer which has horizontal scolling unlike LPP, still missing the folders though) Go Launcher Ex would be a great alternative to LPP. It has both folders in the app drawer and horizontal scrolling. But I 'd only want to use it if it wouldn't show this gap on top when using Simi clock widget. Even if it is set to just one homescreen it reserves space for the homecreen indicator.
