If you have ever caught yourself peering at someone else’s iPhone home screen, be it the person sitting next to you on the subway or in a college lecture hall, look no further. New York-based startup studio and venture capital firm Betaworks on Monday released a new app called #Homescreen for sharing your iPhone home screen and discovering apps. 

#Homescreen was originally intended to be an experiment that has now been packaged into a product. While rudimentary in nature, the app should cater to the masses of users that share screenshots of their iPhone home screen on Twitter, Facebook and other social platforms. Now, you can share exactly which apps you are using with everyone at once.

You can share your own home screen by downloading #Homescreen, taking a screenshot, opening the app and tweeting the screenshot. Then, on the desktop-facing Homescreen.is website, users can hover over apps to get a full description about each. Clicking the title of each app description will link you to the appropriate App Store listing.
