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:
Calm, cool, and gorgeous are three adjectives that sprint to mind when we see this one. We love the way the icon pack pops off the background; blends well with the minimal widgets as well.
The lock screen provides a number of at-a-glance notifications but is not required to achieve the overall design. We say spring for the $2.99 and you’ll have plenty of customization options for other looks. And, really, Zooper comes with a great many pre-made templates and widgets that look fantastic on their own.
Change up the wallpaper and/or icons and this one becomes a completely different animal, try it!
