Get this look for your Android smartphone: Dropdown

uccw_theme_dropdown_fullOne 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.




This is the first Get This Look design that features a dropdown menu for the home screen and it is quite refreshing. We like being able to keep things tucked away until we need them and appreciate keeping everything on one screen. The background wallpaper can be swapped without any problems and the icons can also be adjusted to taste.

It might take a bit of playing around to get things lined up the way you like but the creator seems willing to help. We really think the the use of grays for inactive settings or menus juxtaposes nicely with the red but would love to see some other color schemes.

Finally, who doesn’t appreciate that the entire setup can be achieved without spending any money?

    I’ll Post : I like it! It leaves plenty of room for full size widgets on other screens. You can save memory by cutting down the # of pages used (Apex allows up to 9 pages). You see only what you’re looking for. I might not have this on my Front page, though, opting for a larger weather/date/time widget … both HD Widgets and Beautiful Widgets have added Much Liked customizing of their various widgets features lately …
