    Setup my homescreen is a weekly series that takes you through the steps to setup your Android home screen. Every week, we will guide you in setting up a minimalistic home screen with a fabulous wallpaper, icon pack and widgets - curated by us, for you.

    At a minimum, you will need the following to complete this home screen setup:

    An Android smartphone
    Any Android smartphone should work, but preferably running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher.

    A custom launcher
    You will need a custom launcher that supports icon packs and home screen grid layout support. There are plenty of launchers you can download from the Play Store,
    but to name a few:


    Wallpapers
    Finding a good wallpaper is always the hardest part and we are going to make it simpler as we will find that wallpaper for you every week. If you are interested, you could follow some of these Google+ communities and collections for some great looking wallpapers:
    - World Of Wallpapers
    - Android Wallpapers
    - Collection of Wallpapers from G+

    Icon packs
    Icon packs give a new life to those boring app icons in your app drawer and home screens. With numerous icon packs available in the Play Store, there is no doubt we will find one every week to play with!

    Zooper widget
    Zooper widget allows you to create and manage widgets for your home screen. While there are many apps that provide widget support, we will be primarily using Zooper Widget as I find it very easy to create and manage widgets. Once you have the Zooper widget app installed, you can the download numerous Zooper widget collections from the Play Store so you can use those widgets right away in your home screens. If you are new to Zooper widgets, then I would highly recommend watching this Getting Started video.

    Without further adieu, let's get into this week's setup!

    This week's setup
    This week we are going with an artistic wallpaper with a mysterious adventurer on board!

    Homescreen

    Here is the screenshot of the final home screen.

    Download wallpaper

    You can grab the wallpaper from here.

    Icon Pack

    This setup uses an icon pack called Immaterials available for download from the Play Store.

    Homescreen layout
    Depending on your screen size and display resolution, you may need to adjust the home screen grid layout a little in your custom launcher but mostly this setup should work. Below is my home screen grid layout:

    • Rows: 7
    • Columns: 6
    • Icon size: 80
    • Icon labels: Don't show


    Widget setup

    This setup uses a Zooper widget from the Zooper by Beard Widget Collection available in the Play Store.

    To add this widget to your home screen, first, you will need to add the Zooper widget of size 4x3 to the top right of your home screen, just beside the hot air balloon. If you can't get it to drop in the exact location, adjust your rows and columns to do so.

    Then tap the zooper widget and load the Zooper by Beard widget from your collection. The specific widget from the collection used in this setup is called Beard a font.

    Once loaded, you should see the widget added to your home screen. Resize towards left if necessary to fit with the corners of the hot air balloon.

    Now lay your favorite icons aligning below the hot air balloon basket.
