Do you wish your Android phone looked like an iPhone?

Do you wish you had a seemingly endless sea of icons? Do you hate useful widgets for music or weather? Do you want a plain old lockscreen that just slides to the side? If you are repeatedly shouting yes, then you will need todays apps. Below are some shots of the finished article.

To get this look you need to install three apps from the Android Market. First up we have Espier Launcher that mimics the iOS Launcher quite well I think. It lets you move icons around, it lets you create folders, add shortcuts to contacts and it will arrange the icons in several different orders. The nice thing about this app is that it comes with a good selection of iOS icons and the ones that aren’t themed already have a nice little border around them.

The next thing to install is Magic Locker. This is a Lockscreen replacement that has quite a few different themes available for it. As you may have guessed this one is called IPhone Lockscreen. Once installed you need to tap on the new icon for the theme to enable it. It will then appear under themes in the Magic Locker theme section. Once done you should have pretty much what is shown above. It might be worth noting here that Magic Locker has themes that look like Sense 3.0, a Samsung style one or many more. Below are the links to the Market for these apps.

    Seriously?
    Surely the whole point of having an android device is becuase it isn’t an iPhone?

      In my opinion Android is about having a choice to do things like this if that’s what you want to do. Try doing this on any other OS.

    Is this an I-Phone site now nearly everything seems to revolve around it just recently .
      Not everyone is blinded by their marketing some of us really can think for ourselves .
    If I really wanted to be controlled by Apple and be forced to pay through the nose to make my phone work then I’d buy one .

      Did that sound like a “I-Phone site” kind of thing to say?
      This post was just to show what you can do with your Android phone if you really want to.
      Choice, Android is all about choice. How many people have chosen to install Miui roms because they like the look of the iOS style icons and folders etc?
      This app just represents a much easier way to get that sort of look.

        But is this really a worthwhile article for the main page . I wasn’t referring to the  nature of the piece just the title to include the words I-phone . 
          There are many things you can do with your Android that don’t have anything to do with Apple how many people really want the Apple “look” ?
