Get this look for your Android: Metro

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!

Look, we’re not above saying that some of the other platforms have a few features and details that work well.  With that in mind, the Metro/tiles from Windows Phone can be pretty cool when done right.

Those of you who like to mix up icons and widgets might appreciate the way in which this design features both. Once in place, it’s very easy to move things around and play with the overall feel.

We appreciate that there are not too many apps to install here and that the design doesn’t cost a penny! Well, that is provided you don’t donate to developers. Nevertheless, these free apps can be used in a myriad of ways to tweak our home screens.
