Do you know what love to do with our Android handsets and tablets? We ‘re huge fans of changing the home screen around a bit and creating a new user experience. That’s why we present a weekly series of Get This Look posts.
In a nutshell we show you a new look for your Android handset and tell you which apps you’ll need if you want to mimic the feel. Some of these are a little easier to create than others and many of them can be tweaked to no end. The following details are but the ingredients to which you can create your own delicious Android dish; your results will vary. Which is awesome!
If nothing else, this is a great way to discover new apps, widgets, icons, and more!
G-Now Tabs by mwm8180
WHY WE LOVE THIS LOOK:
We were drawn to this design because of the tabbed layout and the simple, clean, and sharp design. Looking like something Google would employ for an app or service, this one keeps everything on one panel.
This is the first GTL post to feature Google Keep however we don’t expect that to last long. As a convenient note-keeping and to-do list app, it looks great on the home screen.
The colors look great and the icons seem to pop off the grays quite nicely, though we wonder what it might look like with another icon pack. Because of the five tabs (instead of panels) we have plenty of room to place icons, shortcuts, widgets and other items.
The G-Now Tabs look should appeal to those who prefer a more minimal approach to their Android home screen.
