I was seeing fun home screens allllll over the internet and wanted to try it! After some trial and error and help from friends I made a fun one myself. When I shared it over on my instagram y’all went bananas with questions. Seriously, I NEVER get DMs in this quantity lol! So, I made a simple video How to customize your home screen video (because you know I love a good how to video) to attempt to help you guys. Please note I am not a professional :).
Canva : I use this to create the “photo” covers for the app shortcuts. I use a standard instagram post size and search illustrations for the graphic I want. For some (like instagram and Facebook I use their name as the search term) for apps like espy I just searched “football” and chose the one I liked. You can usually adjust color easily. I just use the free version of Canva and I prefer to use the desktop version to the app.
Widgetsmith: This is the app I used for the calendar screen, clock screen and photo square. There is a paid version but for what I am doing I just use the free.
Shortcuts: This app essentially creates a “shortcut” to your apps where you can customize the cover photo (it does way more then this to but for this video that is the function we utilize).
Do you find How to customize your home screen useful?
