Get This Look: Through Glass

through_glass

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 our ongoing series of Get This Look posts. In a nutshell we show you a new layout, app, widget, or icon set for your Android handset and tell you which apps you’ll need 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:

It adds more than a pinch of Google Glass designs cues to our Android experience and looks right at home regardless of the launcher. Stock Android? TouchWiz? Nova? Who cares, just download Zooper Pro and this app and you’ll have the frosted aesthetics that come with those #throughglass pictures you see everywhere.

Whether you’re looking for a new weather widget, search widget, clock, or more, this is a great bundle of templates. Bonus points awarded for putting actions on the widgets so we can launch into our apps. Oh, and for those who prefer a darker tint, check out the Through Black Glass option (pictured left).

You’ll be out the door for under $5 and these two apps can be used to create some gorgeous stuff!

Be sure to check out some of the other widgets and apps from Shamrock Studios; there’s plenty of sharp designs to suit your needs.
