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:

We’re quite fond of this look because it changes the way we view our home screen. Simply put, we’re digging the “long” screen instead of separate panels or pages. Well, that and the manner in which icons look somewhat like widgets or Windows Phone tiles. The apps to the left side look great and provide quick access to the stuff we use most.

The top of the screen give us all the pertinent information we seek out, including battery life and notifications.

    Great walk through, super easy to follow. Took me around two hours to fully get it set up the way I want, but it turned out great http://www.imgur.com/iLhkXZp.png

    I was inspired by this tutorial, and amazed by the versatility of the SS launcher. Highly recommended!
