#Homescreen is a free iPhone app to share your homescreen with others and browse the homescreen shared by them. The app can prove to be your favorite app hunting apps as you will find different homescreens here. Just go through all the homescreens and discover new or lesser known apps every day which can serve the purpose for which you would be searching an app for quite long.
The app lets you share your homescreen from your iPhone. But for browsing the homescreen of other users, you need to go to Homescreen website. The cool thing about this concept is that when you will be browsing the homescreen of other users, then you can simply hover your mouse over any of the apps in the screenshot to know details about it.
Note: I also tested this app on iPad, but it didn’t work.
