Get this look for your Android: jbOS7

We’re huge fans of changing the home screen around a bit and creating a new user experience for our Android. So much so that we present this 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!

WHY WE LOVE THIS LOOK:

As if we really need to explain why we chose this look. It’s a whole bunch of great apps and widgets that bring together a nice cohesive experience. It’s magical, revolutionary, and simply the best you could ever hope for. Radical. Breathtaking. Innovative.

All joking aside, we really like this look as it brings together some clean and simple designs with the right dash of color. Yes, it looks like iOS7. But we cannot help it if iOS7 looks like Android. Nevertheless, we appreciate the overall look. What we like most is that it starts at the lockscreen and continues into a full-fledged JB/OS7 hybrid.

Indeed, the layout takes a bit of configuring and it might seem a bit daunting. That’s okay, however, as the creator has put together a nice tutorial video on how to pull it all together.
