Hey guys heres my entry for the Homescreen Contest!

Android Homescreen

ROM is Bionix

Phone is the Vibrant.

Launcher is ADW.ex

The live wallpaper is Light Grid pro. It's actually really interesting, and I don't think the image alone does it justice.

On the right you can see it in it's default state, where everythings stagnant, but I have it set to react to raindrops and touch, so every time I touch or a raindrop comes, the squares around it shrink out of existence, then pop back in.

Along with this, about 1 out of ever 8 squares will be fully colored in, and every time they pop out and back in they have a chance of changing into a fully colored, or only outlined colored square.

Along with that, they will about once every 2 seconds shift positions, with some squares pushing others out of the way and shifting spots with them. You can sort of see it happening on the left screen.

The whole time as well, all the squares slowly shift colors between red, orange, blue, and green. It looks really cool, I wish I could get a good video up to show it.

Some widgets! Fancy Widget Pro is for the weather forecast on the bottom of the left screen.

Minimalistic text tells me the date and the time as well as battery percentage.

On the right screen, we've got the Google Music widget on top, I edited the APK to set the background as transparent. I did the same thing to Doggcatchers widget directly below it. This causes their divider lines to join together really smoothly, I love it.

The WiFi looking icon on the left of the right screen opens Unified Remote Full, so I can control my computer quickly. The Lightbulb dims my screen with Screen Filter for when my battery's getting low.

The 5 buttons on the bottom are WiFi toggle, Flashlight, Media Scanner, Volume Control, and Data toggle. These are courtesy of Extended controls.

Beneath that are my four rings, Far left is the market, to the right of that is Baconreader, my reddit app.

Far right is my web browser; Miren, and the left of that is my messaging app, Handcent.

In between the rings, I have a transparent icon that when touched opens my application list. I could also just swipe up at anytime to open the applications list, or swipe down to open my notification bar.

I'll be honest, I'm kind of really enjoy playing around with my android phone, and it's a bunch of fun to get a homescreen you're happy with. And I've got to say, I'm really happy with mine.

If you've read this, thanks for checking it out!
