Skydroid: the UI of the Future
Android is diverse. From Themes to Launchers, the strength of Android is (in part) measured by its ability to be customized. While custom launchers are quite common, Skydroid takes differentiation a step further.
Built by a team of 5 developers, and publicly voiced by XDA Senior Member TheRedDrake, Skydroid is an advanced user interface inspired by Windows 8’s Metro UI. Unlike other systems that are only launchers, Skydroid will have around 20 apps involved. Thus far it includes:
5)People with IM and social
12)Stock + Currency converter
The interface is currently under development with more apps being created, and a release scheduled for March/April. If you would like to make a suggestion or an offer of assistance, send an email to Andreev Yanko here or TheRedDrake here.
So head on down to the thread and take a look around. You might be surprised by what you find.
