All throughout March, our team focused on bringing you the best tutorials for personalizing your Android phone or tablet in our Customization Month. From custom ROMs to wallpapers, we took you through a ride of the best ways to personalize everything about your Android experience, gave you examples for inspiration, and showed you where to look for more sources and content.

However, since those articles are scattered across our repository of posts, and since we had published a lot of customization tutorials and round-ups before March, we decided to put them all together for you in one easy-to-navigate list. This makes it easier to bookmark, share with friends, and come back to when you want a full customization resource.

It’s Customization Month on Android.Appstorm! Throughout March, we plan to share with you all our tips, tricks, apps and resources to help you improve your phone or tablet experience and make them suit your style.

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.

It’s Customization Month on Android.Appstorm! Throughout March, we plan to share with you all our tips, tricks, apps and resources to help you improve your phone or tablet experience and make them suit your style.

At the heart of your Android experience with your device is the launcher — this is the program that allows you to view and start all your apps, add widgets to your home screen and customize the way you interact with your phone or tablet. Setting it up correctly will allow you to not only access the information and tools you need quickly, but also personalize the way the OS looks and feels, to suit your taste.

You’ll want to choose a launcher based on your version of Android as well as your personal needs and preferences, and there’s a vast array of them to choose from in the Play Store — but to get started, you should probably first explore the default launcher that your device ships with — especially if you’re running Android 4.x. Today, I’m going to go over some basic ways of setting up your launcher, with tweaks that are generally available across the spectrum of different launchers to help you get familiar with the possibilities and benefits of doing so.

One of the many great things about Android, particularly when it comes to comparison with iOS, is the fact that the operating system is almost endlessly customizable. If you don’t like the launcher your phone or tablet came with, there are countless others to choose from.

However, despite a few differences here and there, the basic idea behind many launchers and homescreen organizers is essentially the same. If you have a large number of icons that you need access to, this can mean that you end up getting a thumb workout as you scroll back and forth through screens. Imgy is here to give your thumb a rest and provide you with virtually unlimited amount of homescreen space.

One of the reasons I chose to get an Android phone instead of one from any other platform was because of the ability to customize practically every aspect of the user interface. Whether you have a problem with the keyboard, need more functionality from the dialer or dislike the default SMS program, there’s an app to help you change and tweak these to your liking.

Similarly, if you’re looking to change the way your icons, widgets and shortcuts are presented, all at once, you can try an alternative launcher. Hi Launcher is one of the new kids on this block, with a functional screen layout, a boatload of options for customization and some clever new features to keep things interesting. Let’s take it for a spin and see if it can become the default launcher on your device.

For most people, customizing a desktop or home screen starts with changing the imagery on it – most notably the wallpaper and icons. And although changing the wallpaper on your Android device is the simplest of tasks, changing icons is not as easy. In fact, you simply can’t do it unless you are using a launcher replacement like ADW Launcher, LauncherPro, Go Launcher Ex or any of the dozens of other options available in the Android Market.

So having already discussed how to change icons on the home screen using any of the three aforementioned launchers, let’s take a look at some of the best icons sets out there for your phone. (more…)
