Get this look for your Android smartphone: Google Now UI

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:

This is a very clean and crisp layout with great usage of space without feeling too cramped. Don’t get us wrong, there’s a lot of information and  accessibility happening on these screen. We just like that it doesn’t feel overwhelming.  For those that don’t like the heavy use of white, there is an alternate dark version that can be achieved using many of the same apps and settings.

The color choices, font, and icons are some of the best blends we’ve seen in a while and look very Google-y. If you were to tell us this is a default Android 5.0 design we would be just fine with that. It’s access to everything we want and need and it looks very much like the Google Now experience.

NOTE: This look will take a bit more work than some of the others we profile here but we think you’ll be pleased with the results. You’ll also need to grab nearly one dozen apps as well as some other odds-n-ends in order to achieve the design.

    By David Rosen you’ve said this before over on xda several times. I you always make fun of people who do not love the stock look and have attacked several forum members over there with claims that is is a superior product.. I am utterly confused.
