If you have an Android device, you can also get a taste of iOS 7, thanks to more than 100 Google Play store apps that promise to give your Android device the look, feel and features of iOS 7. Here are some free apps that stand out from the pack, for better or for worse – mostly the latter.
which makes your Android home screen look like its iOS 7 counterpart, has one of the highest Play Store user ratings for such apps. So I installed it. It’s OK, I suppose, but it’s also cheesy. For instance, the Calendar icon’s title is misspelled as “Calender.”
App icons don’t always map to the appropriate apps installed on your device. When I tapped the Weather icon, for instance, I was taken to a “Top Apps/Offers of the Day” download page, which had nothing to do with weather. The replacement home screen also makes it difficult to access all of your apps. And it adds some useless icons for apps you probably don’t want and definitely don’t need. The Angry Birds icon took me to a download page that didn’t include the popular game.
