Today’s Phone Home features British podcast magnate and all around great guy Myke Hurley. I’ve followed Myke’s podcast work for a long time, especially shows like Enough, CMD+Space, and The Prompt, and am pleased as punch that he agreed to share his homescreen with us. Thanks, Myke!
What’s your deal?
I’m Myke Hurley, I’m a podcaster over at 5by5.tv. I have been working on creating weekly podcasts for three and a half years now and I feel like I’m currently working on my best stuff.

Do you have a philosophy behind the apps that you use, or the place/order that they exist on your phone?
I wouldn’t say I have a specific philosophy, but I have a natural order. I have my messaging apps on the top row and everything else has just evolved over time. Many of the apps that I have on my home screen have been in the same place for as long as I can remember and some have taken the place of others; for example Chrome is in my dock, where safari always was.
What app/s do you use the most? Are there any that you could not live without?
Are there any apps that you use all the time, but secretly don’t want to admit to?
Ha! This is a great question. Maybe Birdbrain (for Twitter stats).
How many apps do you have installed on your phone?
Do you change your home screen layout often?
Not at all, I try not to. I may replace apps, but try to keep the order very similar.
Tell me about your home screen wallpaper. How about the lock screen wallpaper?
I use the same for both, which is a blurred version of the colours of The Prompt artwork (old school Apple).
How are your other screens organized?
They are kind of not organised at all. They are a bit of a mess, but that’s okay for me. I use search a lot to get to apps that aren’t on my home screen. The only other thing that I do is that mainly all new apps go on the bottom of screen three. This is like my ‘testing ground’.
