March was Customization Month on Android.Appstorm. Throughout the whole month, we shared with you all of our knowledge when it comes to personalizing your Android device. We wanted you to be able to design a homescreen like these with little effort.

There were tutorials about custom ROMs, themes, launchers, fonts; example usages for MultiPicture Live Wallpaper, UCCW and DashClock; awesome HD wallpapers, beautiful icons, and more — much, much more.

When we set out to plan this Customization Month, we wanted to bring you the best tutorials and roundups, without repeating our previous posts, or interrupting our regular coverage of Android apps and reviews. Did we succeed? Did you find this series helpful?

One of the new features introduced in Android 4.2 was the ability to add widgets to the lockscreen. For a long time, this feature remained underutilized, with a few apps adding support for it but not many really harnessing its power.

Enter DashClock, a widget that can be added to the lockscreen and offered an open API to allow third-party apps to build extensions for it. DashClock opened a whole world of customization to Android users, as we finally had a customizable widget that didn’t limit us to one app or one notification.

Games have a knack for making boring, dull, or difficult tasks seem fun and interesting. They engage players, rather than putting them to sleep, and make it easier to learn through action and experimentation.

Light-Bot, which started life as a web game but is now available for Android, serves as a brilliant introduction to programming. It teaches logic through puzzles that require you to guide a robot through a level by writing step-by-step instructions for its movement. And it’s fun to boot.

No matter how much you try to customize your Android device with wallpapers, themes, widgets, fonts, and more, there always remains one element very few people change but that can make or break your whole design: icons.

We covered beautiful icons previously on Android.Appstorm, but that was 18 months ago. Nowadays, new designers have come into the picture, new techniques are being used, and design language has morphed tremendously. In this roundup, I will take you through a list of my favorite icon designers and their beautiful creations.

The perfect Twitter app would only exist in a utopian world where all the users have similar requirements and the same standards of judgment. Utopia is a myth and so is the existence of a perfect Twitter app. This realization though, took a long time and numerous Twitter clients, in coming. There is not a single Twitter app worth its salt on the Play Store that I have not tried. From the well known to the obscure, I have tested them all, liked some, hated many but loved none. After much ado, I came to the conclusion of sticking to the client that comes closest to fulfilling all of my Twitter needs, which brings me to Tweetings.

Tweetings, obviously, has all the usual features of a Twitter client well in place, placing it on par with most other clients and making it perfectly capable of being used as your default app. However, there are two telling features of Tweetings that tilt the balance decisively in its favor and clinch the deal for me.

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the iPad version of USA Today on our sister site iPad.Appstorm, stating that the latest version of the app was really well designed, feature-rich, and user-friendly. I also made mention of the fact that I don’t use too many news apps, instead opting for a news organization’s Twitter feed or the like. However, I use more news/feed apps on my Nexus 7 than on my iPad — Press, anyone? — and USA Today has a brand new app for Android that’s fantastic.

Adding a new background image to your home screen is one of the quickest and easiest ways to customize your phone. Just as with your desktop computer, you’ll probably find that you have a number of built-in images to choose from, but in all likelihood you’ll want to choose something a little more personal such as a photo. But if you want something a little different, take a look at MultiPicture Live Wallpaper which brings animation to your backgrounds.
