Skydroid Promises to Make Your Android Look Like Windows 8

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Steve Jobs even quoted Picasso when he said “good artists copy, great artists steal.”

You can change the way your Android-powered smartphone or table looks by changing the wallpaper, or if you want even more customization you can install a custom launcher and matching apps.

Such is the case with Skydroid, a Windows 8 Metro UI-inspired launcher and app suite that should be available in the next few months. This suite will likely have about twenty similarly themed apps:

1) Dialer

2) SMS

3) Email

4) Calendar

5) People with IM and Social

6) Calculator

7) Player

8) Gallery

9) Camera

10) Browser

11) Notes

12) Stock + Currency converter

13) Meteo

14) Alarm

15) News

16) File manager

17) Settings

18) Launcher

So if you love your Android, but like the Windows 8 Metro UI, this Spring you’ll be able to have the best of both worlds!
