    Default Screenshot + Gaussian blur = fun
    I took a screenshot of my home screen, blurred it in Photoshop (radius 7), brought it back into the phone and set it as my wallpaper...voila, instant glowing icons.

    1. The normal screenshot.
    2. The blurry version.
    3. The blurry version applied as wallpaper.

    The effect is especially cool when scrolling from left to right. The icons seem to float over the blurry background.
