Hello everyone!  I was just accepted into the Google Glass Explorer Program, however I am afraid I can't responsibly spend $1,500 on them.  The code expires in 7 days, but if anyone is interested (and more willing to shell out the cash than I am), I am willing to give away the code.

Let me know if you are interested!

UPDATE: The code has been given out. Apologies if you didn't get in fast enough, and good luck elsewhere!

+Cambo Ford so that on the off chance I got picked, I could give the code to someone who could afford it. Which is exactly what happened.

You can give away the device, Google just reserves the right to kill it, though they said they wouldn't.

Thanks to my love of Kickstarter, I basically ordered magic beans off the internet. Let's see how this turns out.

Hey, I made this home screen, and I've been posting it on Android - related groups to get some feedback.  I'd love to hear your thoughts on what I could improve or change!
 
Hey guys!  This is a home screen I just finished making, based on Google's own design guidelines for making Android apps.  My hope is that the layout will be instantly familiar to anyone who has used any Google apps before, such as G+ and Youtube.  Below I go into a bit more depth explaining the layout.  I'd love to hear some feedback on what you like or what you think needs improvement!

The home screen features a wallpaper and profile picture, similar to what is found on Google+'s website.  Below that are a few buttons for Google services, followed by a Google Now widget, and finally your standard internet, phone, app drawer, messaging, and email apps.

Through either swiping to the left screen or tapping the button in the top left-hand corner, an extended menu slides out with more applications.  Most Android apps use this design now, and I thought it would work well in a home screen as well.  I'm proud to say I managed to make it actually slide out from the side, rather than using two different wallpapers.  All of the apps in the slide-out menu are made with UCCW, and are very easy to replace should I find a new app to take another's place.

I made this homescreen using Nova Launcher, UCCW, and Desktop VisualizeR.

And once again, all comments, criticisms, and questions are welcome!

I think I might stay off the internet for a while. Not because I'm worried about PRISM data collection, but because I'm sick of all the misinformation and listening to people jumping to new conclusions every day.

Hey!  So I'm posting this again, because I'm looking to get a bit more feedback on this home screen.  I know, it's kind of spammy and tacky to post more than once.  But I swear, this is the last time, and I apologize for those of you who will see this post twice.

Action Launcher is pretty sweet!

You could also try Swapps: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.schiztech.swapps

Which allows you to put your "X" favorite apps and 5 most recent apps into a widget that can be swiped into view.

+Mitchell Schooler Unfortunately, I made the image in Pixlr on my Chromebook and there's no option to export the image in .psd.  Sorry about that.
