Extremely Clever Homescreen Setup (with easy Tutorial)

by birtanpublished on November 23, 2020

your homescreen should only have things that you need the most through the day now I'll talk about a set of that I have and it works really well for me but before I move on guys I'm trying to reach 200,000 subscribers and it's not gonna happen without your support so be sure to drop a like hit the subscribe button and that belacan and that should get me somewhere anyway let's move on to the video now so here's how I have it set up and I'll talk about how you can get this set up towards the end of the video but it's important you understand why I have it set up like this now the

Apps I use the most are placed on the right because I use by phone in the right hand and it's in an area that's easy to reach using the tongue now I do a lot of my work either on whatsapp or through phone calls which is why they are on the right I also use slack but mostly respond to notifications so that's on the left and Instagram is just for break but Instagram is something I use if you use Facebook or YouTube music or Spotify feel free to drop them on your home screen instead of Instagram next I have a couple of shortcuts here now these to launch the camera directly

In either photo mode or in video mode and that saves me a lot of time I mean otherwise I have to go all the way inside look for camera and then I have to slide through the modes to get to video mode it takes time and then by the time I lose the moment and these two are actually very interesting too these are navigation shortcuts to my work and to my home so if I just click on it it automatically takes my current location my office location and tells me how long I'm going to take along with the directions and same goes for home so it's really easy and very very cool but

Again these are shortcuts that work for me because I use them very often they may or may not work for you the best way is go to your app drawer and long press on the apps that you use and see what widgets or shortcuts are available and you can just drag them out onto the home screen and that should really cut down on a lot of effort that you have to put every day go into the app and performing a certain action now I'm somewhat of a Productivity freak and I want to make sure that all tasks that I or in one place and no matter how small or big the task is or whether it's

Personal or for office of my youtube channel I make sure that they get inside my todoist task management app now there are a ton of task management apps and I'm probably done a video on it it's on the top right corner click that video and see if that helps you out I used to do list arm and it's really great using the to do is to budget I can quickly add a task assign a priority allocated to a project and add a reminder all in one shot and I can very easily look at all the tasks that I have upcoming or the ones that I've left out with this widget in a list and this

Visit from todoist is just an example again you know it's useful for me because I like my tasks upfront so I can be productive this whole set up actually is geared towards high productivity but again you know go to the list of widgets that are available in your smartphone it all depends on the kind of apps you have but once you go through that list you can long press on the widget and get it out on the home screen if you think that's more useful for you than you know a task management widget okay now let's talk about how you can get this look first of all let me just

Create a new home screen this wallpaper you're gonna need this or I'll leave a link at the description to download the wallpaper next you need these apps and these shortcuts out so well you can just go to your app drawer and you can quickly just pull these apps out first and now that I have my apps outside you're gonna need those shortcuts now to get those shortcuts all you have to do is let's say go into camera and they're just long press on it you'll see these two budgets show up then all you have to do is long press on one of them and drag it outside and again same goes for video

Mode long press look for video and then long press and get it out and then you have to follow the same process for maps so look for maps and then long press on it you should see two options work and home if you don't it's probable that you've not defined within the application what the address for work and home should be and once you see those widgets just long press and get them out and then you've got all the relevant shortcuts and now what you need is that to-do list widget where all my tasks for organized long press on the home screen go into widgets and then I'm

Going to look for my todoist widget now this is because I have to do is you may have another task organizer so that may have a budget too and you know I can customize this which is what I like so I can use a preset style and I can set it to transparent doc and once I do that I can set the opacity to a lighter opacity and then I just hit OK and there you go my widget is ready all I have to do now is resize so I can see multiple tasks together and all that's left now is the Google budget so I already have it here I'll just pull it out and I'll drop it over here now to the way to get this I'm

Using Nova Launcher so I just have to go into Nova Launcher settings go into home screen and then search bar placement is a widget and then I go into search bar style and now I can choose what kind of Google search bar I want I wanted this one it looks clean minimal and I can set a color so I have it set to white you can set it to another color depending on the kind of wallpaper you have and that's pretty much it and lastly let's talk about the IQ styling which by the way is not too important because you've got your relevant apps and shortcuts outside but you still may want things to

Look good so I'm using Nova Launcher that allows me to apply icon packs you know but i can go into nova settings go into look and feel then in style and then the ones I'm using right now is called vikon's probably white plus icons so I have icons set and that's what these icons are now these shortcuts I've actually if you see I've individually changed how they look which is very simple to do just long press on this if you're using Nova Launcher you'll get an option called edit and then you can click on this icon right here you'll see all these icon packs

That I have installed and I can just go to let's say this one and I can click here and I can then search for let's say camera and there you go and I can apply this BAM there you go it's got photo it's got a nice look to it it's got the gradient field and I can do that for this one as well all I have to do is I can click on edit go into icon choose the same icon pack so they know all the shortcuts have a similar look and feel and then I can look for video and you know maybe something that catches my eye maybe this one there you go so it's very easy to customize them individually as

Well and that's pretty much it and that's it guys I hope this was really helpful for you if you've got any questions feel free to comment them in the section below I'll reach out as always thanks for watching don't forget to subscribe and hit that like button see you in the next one
