Get this look for your Android smartphone: New York

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. In fact, many of the designs we highlight tend to use the same apps.

WHY WE LOVE THIS LOOK:

We’ve covered a number of looks designed around Google Now but thus far we have not encountered one that so closely resembles the Google+ aesthetics.  If you’re a user of Google’s social network then this home design will feel very familiar. For those who aren’t, this is still sharp-looking layout that puts your important apps and details in a handy spot.

We also like that this one take very little effort to assemble and is largely based around a screen shot of Google+ set against your choice of wallpaper. You know what else rocks? It’s free to create!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Anything Else?

There’s a wonderful website that we’ve long appreciated called MyColorScreen which is dedicated to the great ways you can modify your home screens.
