7 Android Apps to give Your Droid a Futuristic Flare by Mariux
Dec 7, 2011 12:24 PM –
One of the big pluses of having an Android is the ability to customize and change the way your device looks and feels. Subsequently, the Android Market has lots of apps to choose from which help you do just that.
Now, obviously customization is very much down to personal taste but there’s one particular theme which has stood out for me recently, and that is the futuristic ‘Glow Legacy’ by developer Mariux. I should mention it comes in a few different colors (yellow, red, green and blue), but I have used the blue one for the purpose of this review. We’ve included convenient tools to easily download the recommended apps!
1. ADW Theme Glow Legacy Pro. Glow Legacy is essentially a theme that can be applied to your launcher. I use ADW Launcher EX, but you can also get Glow Legacy for both GO Launcher EX and Launcher Pro. It harbours a wide collection of app icons, so your homes screens should look cohesive even with lots of shortcuts. If you are using GO Launcher EX, there are also Glow Legacy skins for the GO SMS and GO Contacts apps too.

2. Glow Legacy Clock Widget. To compliment that theme, you can also get a Glow Legacy Clock widget. Not wholly dissimilar to the new Ice Cream Sandwich generic clock you might have seen, it really works well with the main theme and looks very cool. It’s worth noting too that with ADW Launcher Ex and Launcher Pro you can resize the widget too.

3. Glow Legacy Widgets Pro. Add to this these beautiful glowing widgets and you’re really starting to get a comprehensive experience of Glow Legacy. You get six widgets in this pack including; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Synchronization, GPS, Brightness and Ringer. These are stand-alone widgets so you don’t need a specific launcher, but they look great wherever you put them.

4. Glow Legacy Keyboard Skin. You can also get a gorgeous glow legacy keyboard skin. It works with the likes of Better Keyboard or Smart Keyboard and compliments the theme really well. Obviously you will need to download one of these keyboards first, the skin will not work on its own.

5. Glow Rotating Live Wallpaper. Just to completely finish the whole look off, how about a live wallpaper? Glow Rotating Live Wallpaper is smooth and rich-looking wallpaper which will work on most devices above Android 2.1. It’s very smart and just finishes off the whole Glow Legacy look for your device. Again, you don’t have to have a theme installed, it works on any device that supports live wallpapers.

6. RLW Live Wallpaper Pro. We reviewed this gorgeous live wallpaper recently. With all manner of settings, it was a worthy AndroidTapp Android App of the Week and definitely worth a look for something different. There are all kind of themes available for it too, and the developer is actively encouraging third-party dev involvement to increase that number, giving users even more choice in the future.

7. Super Clock Wallpaper Pro is a highly customizable live wallpaper which displays the time, date, Wi-Fi connection and battery level. There are all kind of different fonts available and the background is completely customizable too. The time is displayed as part of the wallpaper, providing you with valueable home screen space should you need it. I’ve found this can work well either on it’s own or even with the Glow Legacy set of apps.
