Easily make your Android phone look like Ice Cream Sandwich with these free apps


Want to trick your friends into thinking your Android phone has already received the Ice Cream Sandwich update? All it takes is a couple free apps and several minutes of your spare time. Android developer kovdev has uploaded some wallpapers from the Galaxy Nexus and an Ice Cream Sandwich theme that works with ADW.Launcher, Launcher Pro or Go Launcher EX.

Google and Samsung are prepared to reveal Ice Cream Sandwich tomorrow night, but your Android phone probably won’t be updated for another 6-12 months. So grab these free apps in the mean time to make the wait a little easier.



For those of you wishing to go the extra mile, Kellen of Droid-life posted a couple extra mods that let you emulate the Ice Cream Sandwich widgets and dock bar.

    I honestly think this person will have to do their launcher all over again because this is not what it’ll look like. Just my opinion.
