Pytacz steps it up again with another brilliantly designed homescreen. This single page setup stands out with its colorful folder-like shortcuts and notifications on the left hand side, with a tap-to-expand icon at the top left to quickly provide you with your notification drawer. This is completed with a unique dark background that shows a mix of steel and floral designs. This video tutorial will help you recreate this homescreen for your Android!
