Steal This Look! Android makeovers in 5 minutes or less (80’s Rad)

Let’s take it back to the 80’s today. We’re going back to the golden age of VHS tapes, awkward futuristic designs, and the era of Tron and Knight Rider.

Browsing reddit today, we discovered a really awesome app in the Google Play Store. Called Rad Pack Pro, it’s essentially a turnkey solution that morphs your Android into something gnarly…or rad. We’re talking 3,200 icons, wallpapers, and widgets. Moreover, you can customize fonts and colors of widgets, too.

Why pay for some of these apps?

You might put in a few bucks to get things rolling but you’ll be glad you did in the long run. The sheer level of configuration and customization behind a few of these titles means endless designs. If you’ve been doing the custom home screen stuff for a while, you may have already purchased some of these apps already.

There is a free version of the Rad Pack which might suit the needs for most of you as well.

What you’ll need

 Settings:
  • Desktop grid is set to 8×6 here but not required
  • Notification bar toggled off in some pictures to create a more clean aesthetic
