Describe your home screen in a haiku for a chance to win!

homescreen haiku

When it comes to home screens, no two are alike. This month at Ting, show us the home screen of your phone and tell us a bit about what makes it yours. You’ll have a chance to win Ting credit and even a Moto G5 Plus. Oh, and to make things interesting, we want you to describe your home screen in a Haiku.

Maybe you love stories and your home screen is set up for listening to podcasts and reading e-books. Maybe you’re hyper-organized and you have your apps color-coded and alphabetized. Maybe you’re obsessed with social media and documenting your daily lunchtime panini. Maybe you’re a news junkie and you’ve got Google Alerts on every hot story, a finger on the world’s pulse.

Whatever it is, we want to get to know you.

Not sure how to capture a screenshot on your phone? Just Google your phone model and “How to screenshot.”

Your haiku

Describe your home screen in a Haiku and share it alongside your screenshot.

What are your favorite apps? Got any games? Do you have some emails you’ve been neglecting? Just 10,413 or so? Tell us a story or make us laugh. Your Haiku can be about your pizza delivery app and how often you order a late night medium pepperoni. No judgment.
