    Question What Are The Best Ways To Customise The Note 2

    Im new to android so a real newbie - bare with me.

    Looking at some videos and forum posts etc there seems to be some nice wallpapers or themes / transitions for android.

    Can anyone care to share the best non rooted apps that people use to customise there look and feel of their note 2?

    I know there is something called nova launcher? is there like a decent icon app or, well you get what Im trying to say

    Basically any apps or settings to make this beast of a machine look even better .... I attach some pics ...

    Non rooted please ... one step at a time barely getting used to android and rooting is uff

    Thanks In advance

    Nova launcher as well as apex and go launcher will let you choose pics for your dock icons.
    They give you the ability to launch multiple apps from the dock instead of just one.
    You can also use swipe gestures on the screen to launch additional apps and/or settings.

    To me that's much better than a bunch of icons on the screens.

    I see you're use one clock as your clock widget, there is also beautiful Widgets and fancy Widgets.
    There are also lots of live wallpapers.

    Have fun.

    Here's a thread for fonts.. you can extract the zip.. Fonts are installed like any apk

    They will then show with your others in settings/display/font style

    Excellent Stuff Guys!!! Thanks

    What I am using is
    - Go launcher
    - Simple Text To Get Custom Shortcuts & Titles
    - MultiPicture Live Wallpaper
    - MetroStation for icons

    Just gone to settings to see if there is a software update and looks like there is one Settings>About Device> Software update

    One question is if i do update the device will I lose all my customisations that I have done so far??

    Edit: Also is there An app which allows the time to be shown on each screen as mine only shows on homescreen.
