Phone Homescreen

The Designer

The home screen designer allows you to put your creativity to work. Use the panel widgets to build a home screen that is completely unique. It's as simple as dragging and dropping your panels and editing the panel settings. Keep scrolling to view panel explanations below or jump start your home screen with one of our starter templates.

Starter Templates

To get you started using the Home Screen Designer we've included several pre-made templates for you to choose from. Each of these templates are selectable from the CMS and will populate your layout with example images. Select one of the templates below to see the image specs for that layout.
