One of the most frequently asked questions I hear is, “What’s on your iPhone homescreen?” Fellow Apple geeks love to know each other’s favorite app layouts, and there’s a new app specifically for showing them off.
Homescreen by betaworks (the great company that brought Digg back to life) is a simple app that takes a screenshot of your homescreen, analyzes it, and lets you quickly share it on social media. The neat trick is that it attaches App Store links to the third-party apps you’re using so that, when someone hovers over the icon, there’s a description and link to download. Sometimes the app links it chooses can be wrong, but all in all it’s a nifty enough app to try out at least once.
