Simple Home Lite
Simple Home is (as the name suggests) a simple home screen replacement for your phone. It features a home screen with your favorite applications displayed as large easy to tap icons, a control to make a call, quick access to the volume settings and an option to display all of your applications. This replacement Home Screen is considered a minimalist Home Screen replacement. There are basically 2 views, the Home Screen with a maximum of 12 user-assigned apps and a area with controls for functions such as loudness, access to phone dialer, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc. The second screen is the app drawer. There is no support for widgets.
I had no problems setting this one up and using it. I found that even though it functioned exactly as described, it was too limiting for me. Those who want a minimalist Home Screen replacement may like this.
