iPhone screen modes

I love to have the least possible apps on my iPhone screen as possible. While without impeding what needs to be done during the day.

I've been thinking about how I 'dynamically' could have more on my screen without using up more space.

So I've come up with a way to use Widgets to have what I need at my fingertips depending on the time of the day.

Although this is a manual thing, I have a feeling it will make me more productive. And help me focus more.

Let me know what you think, and if you're a patron, comment below with how you've set up your iPhone screen.
