Theme Thursday – Lil Monster

Theme Thursday – Lil Monster

Aug 25, 2011

They’re here, there and everywhere! But what are they? Why, they’re lil’ monsters, and they’re taking over your Android! But, wait. Before you run off screaming, know this: the lil’ monsters are harmless. In fact, they’re quite helpful, holding up your icons for you so can quickly tap them! They’re also part of this week’s featured theme, Lil Monster.

Lil Monster is a theme for ADW Launcher, a customizable home screen replacement utility that allows you to quickly and easily customize your Android device’s graphical user interface. You can easily change entire icon sets, wallpapers and more. You can mix things up even further by using only the icons or wallpapers you want to use along with icons from other themes. It’s all so easy to do, with just a little tinkering around in ADW Launcher’s menu system.

The main attraction of Lil Monster is, of course, the smiling little monsters standing behind each of your icons. It’s a practical solution with an extra dash of whimsy to keep the theme entertaining. In addition, the theme sports several dock styles such as a brown, bushy background, a brick wall and more abstract, conventional designs. There’s also an array of wallpapers to choose from that add a little extra bit of color to the interface.

There’s only one other thing you need to know about Lil Monster, and this may or may not come as a relief to you, but, this theme has absolutely nothing to do with the 1989 movie Little Monsters, starring Fred Savage and Howie Mandel. I know, that’s a real bummer; I was shocked, as well. It’s just one of those things you’ll have to get over.

Lil Monster is available in the Android Market for US$0.99.
