My home screen

The funny thing is this looks similar to the last time I shared my home screen, despite having gone through a few different iterations since then.

But I landed back at the black wallpaper and (even more) minimalist layout for a few reasons:

  • My recent job change allowed me to delete several apps I didn’t need or want anymore, which inspired me to ditch the alphabetically grouped folders for one folder of my most frequently used apps.
  • The ability to remove apps from the home screen without having to fully delete them lets me hide the lesser used ones in the App Library.
  • Keeping most apps out of immediate sight introduces some friction into my device experience, forcing me to use search more often to find things.
  • I want to make my phone as uninteresting and unstimulating as possible in an attempt (perhaps in vain) to use it less.
