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:
The name might have iOS in the title but we don’t see anything here that looks like Apple’s doing, or Android for that matter. It’s a sharp layout that doesn’t feel like your run of the mill home screen. The red and black colors work well, at it’s complemented by the white text and icons. We really appreciate that there’s just the right amount of information here to keep us from tapping through to other apps and widgets.
The apps used in this design can be used to create some other fantastic layouts, some of which can be found in other Get This Look features.
