With every update, Sweeter Home is increasing the level of control you have over your Android home screen. Each time I see these videos from one of our readers, Puny Weakling (aka Lemon), I am amazed at the level of deep customization. Lemon has been very active with promoting Sweeter Home and even launched his own site to release skins.
When creating your own skin, Lemon offers the following tips:
- Always edit and rename EVERY new Action Tray you add to a layout, title and trayName.
- The “Title” of your target Action tray is what will show under your springboard icon, name it well and capitalize!
- Copy/Paste is your friend. When editing an object in layout mode you can copy/paste almost any configuration – iconStyle, shape, gradient and frame are your most common edits.
I encourage you to download Sweeter Home and play around with creating your own skin. Be sure to visit the Sweeter Home forums to give your suggestions and ask questions. If you have any request for Lemon, drop a comment and I’m sure he will be happy to respond.
