Insight about the modern mobile home screens. Why they suck and what to do to improve. It is possible to make much better & useful home screen for iPhone, Android (Nexus, Galaxy), Winphone (Lumia), BlackBerry and others. Information could be delivered even without any clicks.

I have no idea why Apple is still sitting with outdated glossy icons and gradients. Why Android allowed such big number of ugly widgets. At least alignment could be managed, like on Winphone and BlackBerry. And why Winphone follows iPhone's way, with just a signle difference - flatness. The space released after removal of gradients could be used better. To deliver information (via imagery, text, numbers, which constitute the context).

Hoping something will improve in the near future.

  • 2. MOBILE HOME SCREENS
  • 3. THERE COULD BE INFORMATION…COULD BE A LOT OF INFORMATION
  • 4. Link to original post by Oliver HaslamiPhoneprovidesmarkers withquantities ofsmth.That’s it
  • 5. Majority of thegrid cell space isoccupied by theglossy icon…Icon is notinformative,except the redmarker with thenumber.
  • 6. Nexus 4 allowswidgets. But theylook ugly.Not aligned.Much spacewasted between.
  • 7. There is some contextinformation within thewidget.There are smallerwidgets, also withcontext information.Your address here
  • 8. BlackBerry is likeiPhone. Glossy fancyicons without anycontext informationWidgets available.Widgets aligned.
  • 9. BlackBerry iconshave bigger areathan iPhone. Areais left unused. Socrying for space…
  • 10. There is minimalcontext info withnumbers like oniPhone.Winphoneprovides betteraligned widgetsthan Android.
  • 11. A lot of space isleft unused…Why not todeliver more infoby utilizing thatavailable space?
  • 12. Even with markerconcept, there isenough room withinicon-sized area to fitmore information,such as faces, text,products, numbers,snapshots etc.THERE COULD BE INFORMATION!
  • 13. Definitely without iPhone’ish glossy icons,wasting potentially useful space around.Want it or not, but glossy must stay in the past.Near future is flat.With aligned multi-sized widgets like Winphone.With variety of widgets like Android.But much more aesthetic than they are today!With more information embedded into the icon-sized area,like Facebook Home, three faces into small context area.Ideally the home screen can delivery useful information in five-six different contexts even without any clicks on them.Smaller widgets will remain and prevail,because they are sized to our finger…BETTER HOME SCREEN?
