How to make your Android look like it's running iOS 7
If you want to test drive the new iOS 7 looks, and learn firsthand why hardcore iPhone users are grumbling against it, as with anything that's radically different from the past, you don't have to get an iOS device.

Your Android phone can be transformed to look like a big-screen iOS 7 gear with just a couple of applications now, mainly from Espier Studio, that you don't even have to sideload. The apps include an iOS 7-style lock screen, launcher, notifications and control panel, as well as a dialer and contacts app that look exactly like on iPhone.

Granted, KitKat comes with a great dialer now, and there are plenty of other choices at the Play Store, but if you want the latest work of Jony Ive's design team, yet with Android's functionality like home and lockscreen widgets, check out the apps below. Bear in mind, though, that you'll have to shell out for the full ad-free iOS 7 experience, as not all features are present in the free app versions.

Hahaha stole the words right out of my mouth. Even most iPhone users don't like the ugly, pastel, Easter egg look of iOS 7. Why the hell would I use the luxury of customization to make my Note 3 look like a piece of sh*t? Stuff it Jonny Ive!

Not a big fan of apple but I would happily choose ios's theme over Windows' live tiles, anyday !

I use a WP8 device as my backup phone. Live tiles are awesome and really helpful. I usually use it to keep live watch on the stocks I've invested into. One live tile per stock with Bing Finance.

Launcher 8 is hilariously close to wp8. Download this and launcher 8 and you can see which one sucks more.

Please PA, next time when you list an App don't forget to include Developers name as well. Would make the search a little easier. TQ

Why so much hate for iOS 7? I'm an android user here and wouldn't mind giving this a try. I for one, really likes how iOS 7 looks.

Once you use a real iPhone with iOS 7 you’re going to crawl back to Android just like I did. I never felt satisfied with iOS7 and based on Apple’s redesign track record it will be a long time before I go back even with a large screen iPhone.
Seeing control center and the notification pull down brings back bad memories. Not having the ability of customizing control center is painful.

No interest, IMO this an option true, but a silly one.

I be thinking, it's a comedy app.

Part of the reason I love Android is due to the customization of interface looks. I admit that I would probably test this out. However, in all honesty, if I wanted an iphone look, I would purchase an iphone.

Well, THAT's easy to do. You don't need any app to do that. Just open your app drawer. Voila!, instant iPhone look.

I can see no conceivable reason why this would do well. Unfortunately, it will. If you like iOS then get an iPhone. If you like Android then get an Android phone. This is just terrible and not the first time it has been done, if I remember correctly.
