One of our absolute favorite things about Android is the fact that you can bend and tweak the platform to your needs.  Sure, there’s rooting and modding for deep level personalization, but that stuff does not always concern the everyday user. Some of just want to change the home screen around a bit and create a new user experience. To that end, we present our weekly series of Get This Look posts.

In a nutshell we will show you a new look for your Android handset and tell you which apps you’ll need if you want to mimic the feel. Note that the following details are but the ingredients to which you can create your own delicious Android dish – results will vary.  But that’s awesome.

WHY WE LOVE THIS LOOK:

For starters we love the winter wallpaper image and the manner in which widgets and shortcuts are display. We get to see the full photo here and it adds a bit of seasonal flair to the phone. Because of the gray carbon and minimal icons this design will work well with any wallpaper you use, no matter what season.

We also like that this one takes very little effort to assemble and that it comes together with the aid of only two apps. These two free titles can be used in a seemingly never-ending capacity and spruce up any home screen.
