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:

This is a pretty easy one to configure as it’s only a launcher, some widgets, and an icon pack. Indeed, the white looks great against a blurry wallpaper or something very minimal and non-distracting. You can play around with the background image and come up with an entirely different flavor. In fact, here’s a great wallpaper bundle or two to start with.

Zooper Widget Pro will cost you $1.99 but it’s a bargain of an app. You’ll find that there’s a lot of custom widgets you can create and insert in this and other layouts. Finally, feel free to use a different icon bundle with white or another solid color.  You can’t really go wrong with this design and you’ll likely stumble into some awesome combos of your own.

What you’ll need:

Other notes:

  • Wallpaper
  • Nova settings
    • Helvetica Neue LTPro35Th font
    • 11×6 (dock as overlap)
