Productivity start page with live wallpapers, inspirational quotes, bookmark manager, hd wallpapers, productivity new tab for chrome
You decorate your house. You pick out the perfect phone case. But what about your browsers start page? Meet Homey, the app that makes your start page cozy, customized and increase your productivity. Homey: Productivity Start Page has gorgeous live wallpapers, widgets like weather and personal notes, the ability to create easy to access bookmarks, and a search bar right on your new tab! We often feel bored at work due to the monotony of routine or at times we may just lack the inspiration to pull ourselves up and make our life interesting. Such issues make us unproductive and can even adversely affect our emotional state. It may sound like a trivial problem, but it’s not. If emotional state is not taken care of, it can really hamper an employee’s productivity as well. To deal with such problems, We has come out with a wonderfully inventive and super convenient Chrome extension called Homey: Productivity Start Page (https://homey-app.online/). Homey is designed to give a cozy and warm vibe to your browser so that you feel positive, rejuvenated and productive. Once installed, Homey New Tab gives you superb live wallpapers on your new tab, which help you remain calm. It is quick and light, in other words it is optimized for best performance. With the help of a powerful bookmarks manager, it helps you organize all your bookmarks as cool icons on your homepage itself. It also has a search bar right on your start-page so that you don’t have to really go to a search engine. There are tons of other cool features as well. For example: it provides widgets like weather & personal notes and inspirational daily quotes, it makes the tab-page of your PC more like an intuitive screen of a tablet/ mobile-phone with bookmarks looking like apps. “We all want to be more productive in life, but the most important secret of productivity is our emotional state. Homey: Productivity Start Page is the way to share my warmth with all those people who open its start page every day,”. We noticed that in large organizations main focus tends to be productivity while the emotional state of employees is overlooked. That convinced us to come out with a new tab tool like Homey Productivity Start Page. We also calls Homey our “personal mood assistant” and that it surely is thanks to the features it provides. Moreover, it’s really light and easy to use, which means it’s not a drain either on your PC or your mind. All you have to do is just switch on your computer and Homey New Tab will ensure that a soothing live wallpaper welcomes you with information about weather and your notes on one side and all your bookmarks on the other. Since its launch, hundreds of users have found our start page easy-to-use, clean, aesthetically pleasing and a big booster to their productivity. With such a feedback, Homey: Productivity Start Page is well on its way to become your go-to Chrome extension.

- (2021-06-03) Raul F.: Es, sobre todo, muy práctico y bien pensado. Le faltaría mejorar bastante el aspecto de los iconos. No se pueden modificar de tamaño, y deberían pillar, como mínimo, el icono de la página web, el lugar de poner simplemente una letra, Eso es demasiado fácil.
- (2021-06-03) SEBASTIÁN LONDOÑO: muy buena, puedes agregar marcadores, clasificarlos, tiene frases de varias temas para el inicio, temas con movimientos faciles de cambiar

- (2021-05-29) Enrique Verea: Great for organizing and quickly access all my bookmarks. You guys should include a feature to manually set the bookmark's icons. Its the only thingmissing thing IMO
- (2021-05-29) Michael Flores: I like it it does what it promised for. i just wish i could add my own background vids
- (2021-05-29) Eguzki Zt: Es una extensión diferente. Ofrece un estilo a las nuevas pestañas muy inspiradoras a la vez que útiles. Quizás le añadiría alguna otra función. Espero que sigan desarrollándola en el futuro!
- (2021-05-28) Вячеслав Виноградов: нормально.
- (2021-05-28) Dexter Dudley: Best app of its type hands down. I love it. I would score it 5 STARS if it included a way to use custom photos as the background or at the very least include the ability to have a solid color background. Some photos are so complex icons are easily lost in the detail.
- (2021-05-28) HJ Swarci: A welcome change to your Chrome. It's nice and productive.
- (2021-05-26) chelsea nero: honestly love itttttt it is so pretty and keeps me organised
- (2021-05-26) Manuel Sandoval: Gives the browser a fresh look, and covers all my needs when it comes to bookmarks and Google Apps on the same UI. However, it does not have good Keyboard shortcuts which would be nice to have.

- (2021-05-23) Benoit Hamel: cool
- (2021-05-22) Иван Новиков: Классное расширение, очень нравится. Если придираться, то не очень удобно сделана фича с поисковой строкой - хотелось бы чтобы прям страница гугла открывалась, а не попап внутри виджета с результатами поиска (но это чисто вкусовщина по моему скромному мнению). И еще классно было бы подставлять иконки в избранных вкладках, т.к. щас просто размытая иконка с первой буквой адреса
- (2021-06-08, v:4.10.7) Slobodan26: Icons?
Hello :) Its possible maybe to add options to change icons if they show default? Many thanks.
- (2021-06-07, v:4.10.7) Scott Janousek: Lost all my settings from homey
Not sure how it happened, but I opened chrome and lost all my settings and links to my configured homey. Is there a backup anywhere? If not, let me suggest to add a feature to be able to save links, folders, etc either locally or in the cloud. :(
- (2021-06-02, v:4.10.7) John Gray: google search bar

- (2021-06-02, v:4.10.7) Flamesong: Chrome Error when clicking History button.
Hello, When I click the History button on the right, I get a Chrome Error page which says: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is blocked This page has been blocked by Chrome ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT [Reload] (button) I replaced the string of letters with xs in case it has some security significance. The reload button does nothing, nor does hitting the reload button in the toolbar but clicking in the address bar automatically selects all the text and hitting return brings up the History page. I use the Better History extension which seems to be causing this, would it be possible to get around this problem? Thanks.
- (2021-05-28, v:4.10.7) Leandro Dorado: Problema con opciones
Según la "Chrome Web Store", "Homey: New Tab Theme" debería de tener 49 idiomas para elegir entre ellos el Castellano. El problema es que la extensión en en ningún momento me da a elegir idioma. Buscando en "Setting" debería de salir "Lenguage" para cambiar el idioma como en otras extensiones de menor atractivo grafico.
- (2021-05-28, v:4.10.7) Mr Website: Login via google
The homey extension is preventing me from logging in via my google account. After logging in, nothing happens. What to do?
- (2021-05-22, v:4.10.7) Matt DeKok: Feature Ideas
I would love it if the notes on the left-hand side were connected to the bookmark folder I'm viewing at the time. It would be a great productivity feature for the extension. Also, if you have a lot of nested folders in your bookmarks, it would be great if you could create shortcuts to specific nested folders that are used frequently. For example, right-click > create shortcut.
- (2021-05-19, v:4.10.7) Dexter Dudley: Custom Photo? Solid color background?
I love the app. It's exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you. I've been talking it up in my Investor communities this week. Is there any way to set a custom image as the back ground? Or substitute a solid color in place of the photos? Some are arguing the photos often make it difficult to find the site icons. Thanks, [email protected]

- (2021-05-10, v:4.10.6) Jacob Mcclester: Wallpapers
I really like this extension and everything about it but i had the live wallpaper on and it was a christmas tree in the middle of May the biggest problem was it was really crazy lighting and way too flashy. Is it possible to add live wallpaper themes i would like somthing more relaxing and not flashinf me in the face like an ambulance going down the street.
- (2021-05-08, v:4.10.6) Chiri Bibi: Favicon Blue Tiles
Is there a way to update the bookmark icons in the homepage? I tried changing the address of the site and everything through EDIT but it wont update the icon. It shows as Blue tiles with the first letter of the site. Merci for the answer.
- (2021-05-06, v:4.10.6) Mark Majurey: Fav icons bookmarks on homey
On my desktop PC, no picture icons are displayed on my homey page, only pale blue sqiares with the initial letter of the url. Strangely, on my laptop, the homey page shows all icons as pictures! Also, on my desktop the in-page search results from google do not appear ('search.homey-app.online uses an unsupported protocol') whereas on my laptop there is full funciotnality of in-page search results. My home PC uses Avast antivirus, could this be the reason why icons and in-page search results do not work? I would love to have my desktop PC show the same homey functionality as my laptop.
- (2021-04-26, v:4.10.6) Rafael Catalão Lopes Perrella: Feature: multiple Homey bookmark folders showing in the homepage
I have personal and work bookmarks. It would be nice to be able to separate them. Folders do exist, but you have to click them to see inside, which isn't nearly as good as having the bookmarks directly in the front page, even if that causes some chaos. My suggestions would be to allow multiple Homey bookmark folders showing in the homepage, separated by a header as shown in https://imgur.com/a/ENGi1Ts (I didn't add more headers because ~~I'm lazy~~ I believe this is enough to explain the idea).
- (2021-04-26, v:4.10.6) Rafael Catalão Lopes Perrella: Weather widget features
Awesome add-on. It would be great to be able to see the weather for the next few hours and days. If that would be too time consuming to implement in a nice way, maybe a simple link we can click to open a different website that shows it would be nice (although I could simply add that as a bookmark). It would also be useful to see the "feels like" temperature, and max/min temperatures expected for the day.

- (2021-04-07, v:4.10.6) Paul Hobbs: Open bookmarks in new tab by default
Hi there, Is there a setting that will allow me to open links from the Homey page in a new tab by default? I know I can right click a bookmark tile and select "Open in new tab", but I often forget to do that step and just click the bookmark, which is a pain because I have Homey as a pinned tab. Cheers, Paul

- (2021-04-01, v:4.10.6) Tim Goss: Home Favicons
Some of the Homey page bookmark Favicons don't show up and are just represented by a capital letter. How do I add a bookmarked page's Favicon? Thanks in advance for your help. Tim
- (2021-04-01, v:4.10.6) Claudia Pearl: not possible to set location
Would love to be able to set my location for the Weather widget. I have my browser location services turned off but it should be possible to just add the city manually.
- (2021-03-27, v:4.10.6) Lonewolf 3817: Wallpapers
I really love this home page extension it looks amazing! But it's kinda lacking wallpapers if you guys could add more in the next update that would be great!
- (2021-03-26, v:4.10.6) Милош Ристић: Add an option to select wallpaper from PC
Hi. You really need to add an option for us to be able to choose wallpaper directly from our PC. It's really annoying without that kind of possibility... It'd truly mean to a lot to me if you could add that option as soon as possible. Furthermore, it'd truly mean to a lot to me if you could add that option as soon as possible.

Hey, I have been using Homey for couple of months. I want to inform you about the lack of enough live wallpapers. I have found more live wallpaper recently in flixel.com. It will be great pleasure if you implement more live wallpaper in next update of Homey. Thanks in advance.
- (2021-03-18, v:4.10.6) Robert Springer: Removing quotes option

Will you be adding a feature to let us add our own custom wallpapers??? I have images I would prefer to use over the generic ones.
- (2021-02-24, v:4.10.6) Sylo Psy-Be: Custom Bookmark Images
Firstly I love this Home Page - Its really great! The one thing that Is annoying me is the custom bookmark images. Please Please Please allow us to set a colour for bookmarks and folders icon and text! Also being able to set a background behind the bookmark text or the opacity of the tile to make them always readable. Then also a custom Icon image. This is so important and I know a lot of others feel the same way! This would make it easier to read and increase my productivity without me squinting at a load of small icons and text! Thank you so much!
- (2021-02-22, v:4.10.6) Shane Gunn: backups
Hi. Can Homey do a backup of saved bookmarks ? I just had to reset my Chromebook and have lost all saved tabs.
- (2021-02-21, v:4.10.6) Igor K: great ext! only issue: icons not loading
probably the best "start tab" ext I tried. only issue with icons not loading. interestingly, some icons are actually OK, but most are just the first letters on a blue background. even Gmail is without an icon.

Please do add an option to have a custom image on the bookmark

I simply don't know how to do it. It doesn't seem to be anywhere that I have examined, but I'm sure I must've missed it. Thanks!
- (2021-01-23, v:4.10.5) Ashutosh Pandey: increase no. of backgrounds
I have used around 10 extentions from past 20-30 days and removed them one by one but that's being my favourite and loved the concept of live background and bookmarks but requesting to improve it by adding custom image for bookmark icon and also increase no. of live backgrounds. After all really loved it, great work

I use this extension frequently, but just encountered this problem: When I tried to add a bookmark for a Chrome URL, Homey added "http://", which renders the bookmark useless. Having Bookmarks for my Cookies, Chrome Settings, etc., would be really useful. In most cases adding http:// is a helpful convenience, but with Chrome URLs, it becomes a glitch. I hope you will look into this and enable users to make bookmarks for these URLs. Thanks. -- Jeff F.
- (2020-12-14, v:4.9.0) Thor: Shortcut Icons
Not all web pages provide a usable image that works well with the bookmarks speed dial. I would love an option to add a custom image to a book mark on that page. Example, Discord doesn't have any image on the bookmark shortcut.
- (2020-12-10, v:4.9.0) rudra patel: homey
hi homey developer its a very nice and cool experience to use this extension but i have some suggestion for you that can make this extension more better and super et 1) you can try out add more widgets ""by which it can get a cool user interface 2) live wallpapers can get updated on basics of tag [[for example if i want wallpapers from spots and nature and city then we dont have that option so you can add that too.. ]] 3) mainly can you get live wallpapers with more varity soory if i have demanded for more please forgive me

A couple of quick requests.... 1) Custom icons for URLs 2) Upload custom/personal image for background. Would these be possible to add to your backlog?

How do I add a widget to my Homey? I use windows 10. I have been able to add bookmarks. I do not see any way to add a widget. I see the date and time but no weather and no inspirational quote and no other place to click to add a widget. Thank you.
- (2020-10-29, v:4.9.0) Weixiang Guan: Cannot open the App page
I like the extension much! However I could not add the app page (chrome://apps) to the bookmark manually (by clicking on the "+" button and define the URL), it becomes http://chrome//apps after saving the bookmark. Then I open the App page by directly typing in the address bar and add it to the bookmark via the star button, it appeared then on the start page, but clicking on it won't open any tab, it just keeps "loading". Although I don't use the App page much, but it makes the start page with bookmarks somehow imperfect.
