Dope Android Homescreens. Session 1.

I remember my first Android phone back in 2011. One of the things that I quickly fell in love with was the ability to customize so many things. Now I wasn't coming from an iPhone or anything like that; I was coming from whatever a few steps down from an Android phone was. With any current Android phone the customization options have changed dramatically. The possibilities are endless. With all that being said I present Dope Android Home screen Session 1. In each of these sessions I will tell you all how to get the same exact setup, or at least use things off it. 


I use Nova Launcher which is how I use these custom icons. Nova launcher can be found here. The way to change the icons are simple. You go into Nova settings, look and feel, and then to icon theme. Now its important to know that I changed the icons on the actual home screen to something else than what I selected in Nova settings. In Nova settings I have Rondo chosen as the theme. This is the the theme for my dock and for my app drawer.

The Google icon has been changed to one of the Google Icons in Candy Cons. That can be found here. This is done by holding down on the icon on the home screen and selecting edit. Self explanatory from there. The bottom row above the dock are converted into Flatro icons. Those can be found here

The wallpaper is from this real cool wallpaper app called Frame. I tried finding a way to just link to the wallpaper but I couldn't. I will attach it below. The widget is from Zooper widget. The widget that needs to be downloaded would be Fox for Zooper. For your convenience Fox and Zooper. Within the widget selection in fox look for widget 26. Change the colors of everything to what you want, in my case black. 

I recommend getting pro versions of everything mentioned. I also can't remember if any of those icons actually cost anything. If it does it is usually no more than a buck. Here is the wallpaper below. I would love to keep these going. Lets make it happen. 


2017 Plans And Some Hard Hitting Truth

I have for the most part always been in some type of financial grind. I am not ashamed of it. I have grown from the rough times and I can appreciate financial blessings. It was around 2012-2013 when the "yourdailytechy" concept came into play. I remember seeing big time youtubers and other tech websites that were doing financially well, and figured I would give it a go.

My goal was to make money. As is everyone else, though they might not be as transparent. For 3 years I bought what I could afford to review and went from there. I was sent review units from several great companies and it was great. 2015-2016 seemed to be great from the outsider looking in. Unfortunately they would be wrong. The amount of actual money made since I started is small. 

In the beginning of last year I started doing photography on the side just for some extra income. I work at a cell phone repair shop as well. The income from this and the store was no where near enough to be financially stable. In the middle of the year I found myself and my wife getting a lot busier doing photography, to the point we created RobertBassettPhotgraphy. I took my YourDailyTechy Instagram and changed it to RobertBassettPhotography. In a little less than a year I made more doing photography than I have with YourDailyTechy in 3 years.

I have been inactive. I haven't posted anything since September 14th. I tell myself "Who can blame me? I took a job that paid more, and I equally enjoy it just as much." Which that is true, I do love photography. A lot. It is a tie with photography and the whole 'tech' galaxy. I still want this though. I don't want to throw something away just because I haven't seen a lot of progress.

Stay tuned. Things are happening. Make sure you are subscribed here and on YouTube.
