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~

    • I haven’t tried the icon packs, I’m sorry. I would test it out myself but I’m in Korea right now (my android phone is for the states) so I have no way of testing it out 😦 I hope that issue will be fixed!

      • you know… you could’ve pressed home key + power key to take screen shots of your phone, for better quality images and then sent via bluetooth to your pc. just a tip. lol

    • if you download icon packs, make sure you directly install them on your phone.. and then if you have a program such as nexon or go launcher pro, you can change icon settings or icon appearance there.
      in go launcher pro, access your settings from the home screen, this will open the go launcher settings. then select ‘visual appearance’ > ‘icons’ > select the theme.

      hope that helped.

      • I know that method works on an iPhone/iPod but on my LG phone I can’t take screenshots on my phone 😦 I think it’s because my phone is too old or cheap, lol. I’ve tried before, but thanks for the help 🙂

    • Hello! What was the issue? You couldn’t find the program? Or you went through all the steps but it still won’t activate on your phone? It’s possible since the screen is larger it isn’t compatible (but I am not 100% sure, it is just a theory!).Let me know exactly what you did/couldn’t do and I will try to help^^

      • How do you make it go back original? Before you’ve installed the themes, how do you make it go back to normal?

    • If you want to go back to your original home page (from before installing the app), then you’d need to uninstall the app. But in terms of uninstalling themes without uninstalling the app, I’m not too sure, sorry!! I don’t have this app anymore on my phone (since it took up a lot of room and I got a new phone) so I’m sorry I’m not much help.
