Snapshots 1 (User Interface)
Here are some snapshots of the LG Optimus 2X user interface. and of course, my homescreen. :)
This is the default "LG Home" type of user interface (UI). There are other UI out there and I have installed another 2 (Go Launcher and Launcher Pro). I will show screen shots of the other 2 UI later.
Screenshot of the standby screen.
The Weather and Time widget comes with animation. Captured these image while the animation is going on. So when it's raining real-time, rain drops will start falling from the screen (see screen shot) and when it's sunny, there will be a moving Sun. :) Nice work. The weather information is from Accuweather.
However, the clock doesn't flip, the number just changes.
Pinching the screen will zoom out of the screen and show all 7 screens (Android 2.2 allows up to 7 screens for your to populate with widgets and shortcuts etc). :) This zooming out using pinch gesture is similar to that found in HTC' Sense UI.
1. User Interface (UI)- In computer science and human-computer interaction, the user interface (of a computer program) refers to the graphical, textual and auditory information the program presents to the user, and the control sequences (such as keystrokes with the computer keyboard, movements of the computer mouse, and selections with the touchscreen) the user employs to control the program.
