Get this look for your Android: Peak


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!

While we like the way the widgets and icons look against the mountain wallpaper, we’ve found it works great with just about anything you might already use. Pick something dark or minimal and watch how sharp the icons and notifications look.

We appreciate a simple home screen experience every once in a while as it keeps us from becoming distracted and falling down the rabbit holes of widgets. The UCCW widget layout here provides at-a-glance notifications for new messages, calls, and emails; usually the stuff we wake our phone to check.

Zooper Wiget Pro has only been on our GTL series one other time so we’re glad to see it employed here. At $1.99, the app/widget looks gorgeous in just about any scenario and is one of our faves.

Check the archives for even more inspiration!


What else:

The missed calls, messages, and E-Mails, and the next alarm time were done with UCCW. The battery and thermometer, as well as the clock and date were done with Zooper Widget Pro. The thermometer actually works, using a new feature in a recent update that allows users to make custom progress bars. Basically, it’s just a progress bar, where 0° F is empty, and 100° F is full.
