Blurt Tile

Top Android Homescreen January 2nd Edition: Blur Tile

January 2, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

Welcome to 2015! We hope everyone’s holidays were fun and safe. Now that we’re two days into the new year we have a new homescreen to help you start it off. This pick like all of our homescreen picks comes from a designer at mycolorscreen.com, and this week’s pick is called Blur Tile, which has a little bit of a Material Design inspired look with tiles that have a slightly lower opacity to them. This particular design is available two different ways, through the usual setup of a third party launcher like Nova Prime, Zooper Pro, Media Utilities and the appropriate widget files, and through Themer which is another third party launcher where the designs are already set up and applicable as is.

Since Themer requires no more then applying the chosen theme, we’ll gloss over what you need for the second method which requires a few more steps. First, download a third party launcher like Nova Prime, then make sure to grab Zooper Pro, and finally Media Utilities. Make sure your grid size is set to 6 x 6, hide status bar and dock, and hide the navigation buttons. Also make sure to set your Nova transition to “wide”.

As far as applying the widgets goes, you can download them from the link the source has provided, which you can get to by hitting the source link. There are 6 widgets total, and you’ll want to set your number of home pages to 3, that makes two widgets per page. Once you download the Zooper files, make sure to copy and paste them into the Zooper themes folder so you can see them when you go to select a Zooper widget, you’ll need a file explorer for this. If you like this homescreen design, don’t forget to hit the love button and “zoom” the image at the source link to show some appreciation for the hard work of the creator. Have a good weekend and happy themeing!
