Do it your way with N900 – Live Wallpaper and profiles

19 April 2010Entry by

As some of you may remember I wrote once that customization and personalization of my N900 is a kind of neverending story and I admit I still work on it to achieve perfection some day. On my quest I’ve found some things you may try and maybe some of them will become part of your favourite set.

This time let’s have a look on homescreen, or to be more accurate on wallpaper. If you have a feeling your wallpaper is static and boring you can try Live Wallpaper. After you install it your first homescreen will change to living picture of city with moving busses, changing sun position depending on time, just watch demo video. To be honest I haven’t found any additional configuration for this eye candy, so it doesn’t make good piece of software for me, but it’s only my opinion. Try it, you may be happy with that.

The second thing I can propose today is ProfilesX Extended Profiles Manager. It will install additional section in settings screen and will allow you to add new ringtones profiles and change between default two and additionally created profiles using statusbar menu (opened by tapping on clock/battery level area). This will allow you to add new profiles with completely new settings, so you can adjust it for every situation – silent profile for meetings, calm ringtone for day off, loud when you’re travelling or shopping and whatever you can think of.

This doesn’t make the end of ‘your way’ series. I’m sure there will be more and more ways to customize N900 and I will probably try most of them and maybe you’ll find something interesting here.
