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I have no idea why Apple is still sitting with outdated glossy icons and gradients.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.
