iOS 7 icons on Android for the Apple fan in you

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Thursday, June 13th, 2013 With No Comments »

Earlier this week the folks from Apple unveiled iOS 7, the new face of their mobile OS. Representing the biggest change to the iPhone OS since its birth. We won’t get into if we like it or not, who copied who and all that jazz, but instead show you just how easy we can make our Androids look the same. Thanks to one fan and her Galaxy Note II we have exactly that.

As usual, thanks to the awesome fan and developer community on Android we already have a full icon theme pack to deliver the same look to all of our Android smartphones. Don’t get out the pitch forks on me guys. No I don’t like the look, and I’m fine with Jelly Bean just how it is. Thank you very much! However, it is fun to give this a try and show it off to your iPhone friends patiently waiting for iOS 7.

A student by the name of Gail Santos posted up the details and all the information over on Google+ for those looking to make their phone look like iOS 7. I’m not sure why you’d want to, and neither is she, but she states it was fun nonetheless. Using her simple theme and icon pack with a custom launcher such as the popular NOVA Prime Launcher, she quickly changed all her icons and arranged them on screen just like Apple and iOS 7. It’s that simple.

Between custom ROMs, themes, and launchers we can do just about whatever we want on Android, and this is nothing new. I’m sure many won’t like the idea behind this, but to each his own. If you’re interested in customizing your icons with the new “flat iOS 7 look” Gail has the icon pack and iOS 7 wallpaper both available to download. She states she quickly went back to stock after giving this a try, and just wanted to share it with everyone. More details and full download info is available from the link below.

Give it a try and get crazy. It’s all in good fun.
