Recreated in Photoshop from scratch, this was made because I fell in love with the original design by 21Marc012. As you can see I didn’t change it much because it was perfect as is. If Marc wants the psd files from me, he can contact me and I’ll happily send them. Not sending out to anyone else. If you would like the original files be sure to snag them from My Color Screen
On another note, I do have a few vacation pictures to show you, but we (Doug and I) came back from vacation with a nasty nasty flu bug. So as soon as I get around to it I’ll post those up. Yes, Keith Urban was AWESOME a second time in concert! We saw him again in Knoxville Tennesse.

I agonized over what cover I wanted for my new Google Play Edition Samsung Galaxy S4, so I ended up buying more than one. I also bought a really pretty battery cover.
First one I bought was the Elago Slim Fit in Camo Green for $9.99 (I didn’t bother with photographs). I do like it, but it doesn’t feel like it offers much in the way of protection if I accidentally drop my phone. Plus it shows fingerprints on the back, which to me seemed hard to wipe clean. I also found the side button holes to be a pain in the butt. I feel like I need to use my fingernails to get down in there just to push the buttons. Pretty all in all, but not something I will use every day.
This was my second purchase and is what caught my eye on Amazon and what led me to my third purchase: Tonyyan Flower Embossed Battery Cover Housing for $1.99 + $4.99 shipping = $6.98. One might think that because it was made and shipped from China that it would be cheap. It’s anything but. I’m extremely impressed with the artwork, the detail, and the fact that the battery cover fits like a glove. I ordered it on Aug 15th, but not sure when it was delivered since I just got home yesterday after being on vacation… it was in the mailbox. This battery cover is stunning, and since I love Asian designs I will more than likely purchase a few more of these.
My third purchase was the AmazonBasics Protective TPU Case in Frosted Clear for $5.99. Not much to say about this one other than it’s perfect for showing off my new battery cover. Hard to explain how this feels because it’s slick but sticky at the same time. Has a nice lip around the front edges so you can place the phone face down without the glass touching the surface. The buttons on the side of the phone are easily pressed with this case, too. I really like this case and would recommend it to anyone who loves TPU cases.
Now on to the photographs!
Custom Galaxy Nexus
Another custom cell phone screen. I really enjoy doing these! The original files were in pieces, so I had to fix them in Photoshop. Here’s
the original by a great Russian customizer, Soloveyptah.
Customized Galaxy Nexus
Took me all day to create this screen on my phone! The right side scrolls upwards to show more Google Grids. :) Going to share a few video links and app links for customizing your Android device. Be aware that some of the apps I use are pay apps.
In order to re-create the screen I posted, you will need to view a few videos on how to use the apps (grab a drink and a snack, some vids are long!). Be certain to read the video descriptions as they may contain links for things that you need (wallpaper or other resources etc.);
ssLauncher the Original [vid tutorial] An FYI: There is no other launcher out there that allows you this much precision when it comes to placing items/widgets on your screen.
