It’s hard to beat a classic layout and structure, and there’s just something I like about having large, colorful icons with rounded corners splashed across the screen. Droid Genesis, this week’s Theme Thursday, features just that.
Now, the great thing about ADW Launcher is that you have the luxury to pick and choose every aspect of your user interface. Take these icons, for example. You might want to use them across your phone, but completely ditch the wallpapers. No problem! Maybe you just want to assign some of the icons and blend in another icon set? Again, with ADW Launcher, the world is your oyster. The home screen replacement utility allows you to completely customize the look of your Android device. It’s a lot of fun to play with.
There’s not a whole lot to this theme, aside from the fact that it features 300 attractive icons, a few “spacey” wallpapers and seems reminiscent of iOS. It’s a very subtle theme, but that may be all some people are after. If you’re among the group of people out there who don’t care for the default Android icons and simply want something different that’s not too over-the-top, this theme’s for you.
One of the best things about this theme is that it isn’t restricted to just ADW Launcher. Droid Genesis is compatible with Go Launcher EX and Launcher Pro. This means you can use 3 different launchers and still maintain the same look without downloading 3 different versions of the same theme. It’s a good idea to support multiple launchers, and this isn’t the first theme I’ve seen that does it.
Droid Genesis is available on the Android Market for US$0.99. The author also accepts icon requests, so if you notice a custom icon for your favorite app isn’t included, be sure to contact the developer.
