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~
