Get This Look: Tiled 2

Install the entire layout using only one app

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 seriously doesn’t get much easier than installation by the press of a button. Once you’ve installed Themer, a wonderful app for switching up your Android designs, you’re over halfway there. Navigate to the setup called Tiled 2 and install! Don’t like this particular look and want to play around a bit? Go for it!

As for the actual look of this one, we’re fond of the big, in-your-face squares with access to common apps. Yes, it looks a little Windows 8-y, but is that always a bad thing? The white icons and fonts are fantastic and would look great set atop any colors or photos. And who doesn’t appreciate a handy, minimal battery indicator widget?
