When you’re setting up your LG G Pad, one of the first things to do is add apps, widgets, and folders onto the multiple home screens. LG offers users an ability to customize that most other Android skins don’t. The ability to change the size, and look of every icon on your device. Whether its doubling the size of an app, or squeezing a widget to make more room on the home screen, LG’s grid helps the user get the perfect look for their device.
When you add an app to your homescreen, press and hold the icon but don’t move it. You’ll see a highlighted outline of the icon with an edit icon in the corner. If you press that icon, you’ll be able to change a host of options including size and picture. You can even use your gallery as icons on your device! So each of your device’s apps could show up as a different selfie. And then watch the horror on your friends’ faces when they pick up your tablet.
For widgets, you can edit the size larger or smaller following the same steps as above. There are limits to this, but LG let’s almost all widgets be customized in some way. I’ve found LG does a good job at keeping the widget usable while balancing the size customization feature. For example, my calendar widget can be scaled down, but LG stops me when the day’s entries would be too difficult to see or use.
Android in general is known for its customization, especially when compared to other OS’s. LG takes this a step further by allowing icon level customizations and the using of one’s own photos as app icons. Stick another feather in LG’s cap, and another awesome feature for the versatile 7.0in connected tablet.
