10 creative custom Android homescreen themes made by people just like you
Close your eyes and think of any topic you're interested in. Got it? Good, now all you need to do is head over to Reddit and find the appropriate subreddit. Chances are, there is one – even if you thought of something ridiculously particular. As of today, there are 575,418 subreddits available according to reddit metrics.

Theming has been something of an interest for us lately, and seeing how well-equipped the Android ecosystem is for the purpose, it was no wonder we ended in /r/AndroidThemes. The community is very active and churns out new and fresh themes for your phone's homescreen every day. Best of all, it is common courtesy for the creator to share detailed steps so that the rest of us can replicate his or her work. You can do the same.

We went through some of the most popular themes posted on the subreddit today, and we wanted to showcase some of them to you. Find below 12 themes we loved and a direct link to the guide that'll outline how to set them up on your own device.

Root + Custom Launcher + Zooper + UCCW + not being a pleb = Awesome android home screens.

Haven't had the time yet to read into UCCW, but what advantage does it have to have UCCW and Zooper? I thought they were quite similar. Also Tasker is great for adding functionality to your homescreen :)

It does have really great customizations for widgets. Just some creativity and you can do wonders. Check out uccw.deviantart.com and mycolorscreen.com for some ideas.

Thanks will look into this :) I like Zooper a lot but it doesn't support animations and was wondering if UCCW did.

This is the sole reason why i love Android. No matter if I spend hours designing my homescreen look and just use stock version - I like having the option to be truly unique in design and have phone show exactly what I need. When iPhone was launched, I thought it to be more Apple "feature" - to give really unique look and feel, even for your phone. Instead I got this "application launcher", which looks same for every other user and tries to satisfy everybody from moms at home to business man on the run - well only thing that can be consiered so universal is a shotgun shot in the face and thats not very pleasent.
