Thought it'd be quite a good idea to see what themes/modified apps people are running etc

Try include a quick description of what you're running.

Here is my Work Home screen, I won't post the others, as the e-mail widgets have sensitive information and the other widgets are just the stock sense UI weather widget and the music widget.




Here are my Home, Home screens;

 

The quality isn't great :/

But yeah it's Launcher Pro Plus with Music Mod, Agenda Widget, BattStatt, Digital Clock Widget. All avaliable from the market.

Icons are from here; http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=7459783

I change my phone's appearance frequently, but I like this combo: 

Poison Ivy Home screen

...and I like this one, too. Note the configurable / orientable Power Control widget in CyanogenMod 6. You can have about 15 items on there if you want.

boby55: Ugly... ;-)

(as penance for that I'll make my Nexus One look iPad-ish today with the "Skies" theme for the ADW Launcher).

Welcome to the world of London weather ;).

Loving some of your home screens!

Mine is Samsung Galaxy S. Pretty standard but clock is "Beautiful Widget". Also standard power management widget. Only running 3 screens rather than the 7. I don't like clutter ;)

I have come to this conclusion.
Android is so much more prettier than iOS

There are three ways. 

1. Screenshot on the phone of anything and everything - ROOT REQUIRED. 

The best screenshot apps require root. I use Drocap2 and Shootme!.

2. If you haven't rooted your phone and you still want to take screenshots of whatever is on your screen, then you need to install the Android SDK. You can use "ddms" to capture screenshots of your phone via the USB cable to the PC running the Android SDK.   This works like Drocap2 and Shootme! (captures everything) with the only drawback being you must have the SDK installed and the phone must be USB-connected to the PC. (Risks: On Windows the SDK's USB drivers can be problematic and on Linux you'll likely have to configure UDEV permissions - easy when you know how. Google is ya frend.)

3. "Sort of" screenshots on the phone for non-root users: 

Some of the alternate Home apps will let you take a screenshot of the Home screen (without the Notification bar). Open Home does this for sure. You can see here (scroll down - it's on the right) a slideshow of Open Home and aHome theme screenshots I took on my HTC Magic prior to rooting it. So that's an option for non-root users....but it does limit you to screenshots of that home app only....and only the home screen. It doesn't support screenshots in other apps. You need root for that.

Having too much fun. 

Context: CyanogenMod 6.0 RC3 (Froyo) on Google Nexus One. 

This Home screen is:

ADW Launcher with "ADW.white" theme,
Beautiful Widgets (with Cyanogen skin - widget background opacity set to zero)
A dark wallpaper via the (excellent) Flikie Wallpaper app. I searched on "black". 

Another acreenshot

BattStatt on the main page, Twicca, Smooth Calendar, and SwitchPro on
