  3. Once you have an image selected, you can move and resize it from the preview.
  4. Tap the “Set wallpaper” button at the top left to apply your wallpaper.


Add Apps to Home Screen

  1. Open the app drawer from the home screen. The app drawer is the white round icon with six dots, in the middle of the bottom bar by default.
  2. Find the app you wish to add to your home screen.
  3. Tap and hold the app until your home screen(s) appear.
  4. Drop the app wherever you want your app to be added.

Add and Remove Widgets

  1. Tap and hold any black space on your homescreen.
  2. Tap Widgets.
  3. Scroll through and find the widget you would like to add to your home screen.
  4. Tap and hold on any widget, then drag and drop to the desired location.


Add or Remove Home Screen Pages

  1. Choose an icon or widget you would like on your new home screen page.
  2. Tap and hold the icon or widget until you can move it around.
  3. Drag to the left or right screen edge to move to a new page. If there is not a page there currently, a new one will be created.
  4. To remove a page, simply remove all icons, folders, and widgets from the page. The page will automatically disappear.


Add Folders

  1. Drag and drop an icon onto another icon until a white highlight appears behind the icon.
  2. A folder is created containing the two apps.
  3. At this point the folder has no name. You can add a name by tapping on the folder, and tapping on the words “Unnamed Folder” at the bottom to bring up the keyboard and let you type in a name for the keyboard.
  4. To remove a folder, simply drag app icons out until only one is left. The folder will be removed, and the last app will remain in it’s spot.
