Very cute Korean phone app TUTORIAL (for home screen, lock screen, etc.)!

My friend showed me this adorable app where you can download a theme for your home screen, lock screen, etc. and it’s just so cuuuuute~!!

It’s called “Phone Theme Shop” and it’s for the Android. I don’t know if it works if you don’t have an Android, but since I have an Android I know it works for me.

Although it’s a Korean app, a lot of things are in English so it’s easy to follow and understand 🙂

I had a bit of difficulty and confusion, though, when trying to make themes work and such, so here’s a tutorial to help you guys out (incase you’re like me and a little slow when it comes to new technology^^;;). It seems long and complicated, but it really isn’t that hard! It can just get a bit confusing if you don’t know what to do exactly.

I had to take pictures with my camera with ‘bleeeh’ quality, so sorry for that! On to the tutorial~

First search on Google Play for the app “Phone Theme Shop” and install.

After installing, open the app and you should get this screen:

Click ‘Launcher Theme’ and you’ll get this screen:

In the left column you see things like ‘Launcher theme’, ‘Icon pack’, ‘Lock screen theme’, etc. Whichever part of you phone you want to customize, you click on that button.

The only ones I’ve done so far are:

  • ‘Launcher theme’ to edit the home screen
  • ‘Lock screen theme’ to edit the lock screen
  • ‘SMS theme’ to edit the text messaging home screen

Whatever you want to edit, click that button and it’ll take you to a scroll-down screen of many, many themes.

Here’s a tip: Some themes are free while others are not (the ones that aren’t, you need an account where you download different apps and click ads to collect points [beans]. It’s a hassle, but if you want the really good themes, you can make an account. I, on the other hand, don’t want to deal with that so I only download the free themes).

To tell which themes are free and which aren’t, when you click a theme, under the blue ‘Install’ button there are two main differences:

The ones with ‘ ___ beans’ are not free while the ones that are blank under the ‘Install’ button are free.

When you find a theme you like (preferably a free one if you don’t have a Phone Theme Shop account), click install and it’ll be on your phone. But it won’t automatically activate on your phone yet. You need to download certain apps to make these themes compatible with your phone. When you download themes for certain parts of your phone, they will tell you that you can’t activate that theme until you install so-and-so app. They’ll automatically direct you to the app you need to install, so here are the ones I had to download for the home screen, lock screen, and texting screen:

After you install an app, open it and it’ll take you to this page (here’s the one when you install the ‘GO Launcher Ex’ and ‘GO Locker’):

Click ‘Installed’ and you’ll find themes that you installed from the Phone Theme Shop app.

Click ‘Apply’ to whichever theme you want to install, and then it’ll be on your phone, yay! (‘∇’)

To always edit your themes, just click either ‘GO Launcher Ex’, ‘GO SMS Pro’, etc. to apply the theme for whichever part of the phone. From there they have ‘Featured’ themes and ‘Installed’ themes and just click ‘Installed’ and click the theme you want to use.

And there you have it! The tutorial to getting very cute phone screens, lock screens, etc. for your phone  (*´∀`*)☆

Hope it wasn’t confusing. If you have an questions or comments, feel free to ask/post!

Now enjoy as I end this post with my new adorable lock screen~


Night out partying or…PIZZA?!★

This weekend was filled with fatty goodness.

My friends and I were invited to a party but instead, stayed in their dorm, ordered pizza, and watched a movie! Also, a few hours before 신디 and I went to the grocery store and bought chips and cookies for our friends! By the end of the weekend (Friday through Sunday), all the cookies and chips were gone, hehehe~

About the party, it was a birthday/drinking party for my friend’s cousin who like(d?) me and that’s why I was invited. Before when we skyped, he mentioned a party so I asked if my friends could go, which is probably why he invited them too.

We didn’t want to go because first of all, we don’t know them very well and secondly, the guest list included a bunch of Asian ‘swag’ boys and Asian girls with too much makeup and tight clothes. My friends and I aren’t those kind of people and my three of my friends are pretty much the only non-Asian girls invited. How awkward….

So a pizza party with a scary movie and some karaoke right at their dorm made the night 100x more fun than if we went to the party! I was greatly pleased with our small get together( ̄ー ̄)


Before the special pizza box combo (two medium pizzas, one alfredo pasta, and one order of bread sticks) 


After the devouring

I miss blogging like this, hope I can bring more posts like this to the blog and bring it back to life^^
