Home Screen Home!
Today, people do everything with their cell phone. People become hysterical if their battery dies or they are left without a phone. It is has become an essential body attachment for most. To be so obsessed with an object, it has to embody who you are as a person to some degree. That is why I believe the iPhone’s Home Screen can tell a lot about a person. If I were to analyze what apps one has, the structure of one’s apps, the wallpaper one displays, and the condition of one’s phone I would probably be able to identify a rough guesstimation on what type of person that individual was.
This is my iPhone’s Home Screen (folders and locked screen):
The folder on the left contains the apps I use on a consistent basis. Every morning I usually check the weather (old man status, I know, but it is so accessible). I am horrible with directions so AroundMe and Maps guide me to my destination. Notes and Camera help document the interesting things I see (my blog material). The dictionary’s word of the day keeps my vocabulary growing. And most importantly, the clock is my alarm and keeps me on schedule. (I use settings a lot too, but who doesn’t? Also the Reminder app was a good idea, but I never remember to look at the reminder.)
On the right is my information folder. It is where I get my fix of social media and news. It serves as my Info-On-The-Go. My WordPress app lets me catch up on blogs. TwitBird Pro allows me to Tweet, which I do not do very often anymore. My passion for Twitter has subdued. The Chive is good for a chuckle or two. Youtube allows me to listen to any song. ScoreCenter, KFAN, and Vikings News help me keep up to date on the latest information surrounding the Minnesota Vikings. AP Mobile, eh. The Stock app has grown to be one of my favorite. IMDB, Digg, and Flixster help me solve problems and locate trivial info.
(Note: The wallpaper pictures are taken by a friend of mine. She is an amazing photographer. If you are interested, you can check her out HERE.)
