Get this look for your Android: Big Red


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!

Big Red by JohnMcWho


This one is a bit different from some of the other GTL designs we’ve profiled here yet it feels familiar. It’s a flat color layout with minimalist grey icons set against whites. Maybe it’s the choice of red and grey, maybe it’s the crisp white. Either way, we like the way all of these things come together.

We’re fond of the way home pages are portrayed here as they feel more like popup comic/graphic novel bubbles instead of separate screens. It’s a neat twist and seems to work well for the categories.  All of your common apps, settings, and shortcuts are present; everything is easily accessible and seems to be one tap away.

As much as we like the overall picture here, a quick tweak of the wallpaper can produce an entirely fresh result. Give it a shot and see how well the same look pops off of a green or blue.

    it looks nice, although a bit too simple for my taste.
