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 fond of this design as it brings a very clean look to the new Nexus 5 wallpaper. With white icons, widgets, and settings set atop the gradient background it looks unlike anything Google might do in an official capacity. This is not to suggest, however, that we would mind if this was the look to Android 4.4 KitKat.
You can swap out the wallpaper for anything you want but we certainly recommend gradients or something minimal. Go too busy with the image and you’ll lose the appeal.
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.
