Android users get a taste of iOS with new theme

A new free Android application has hit the Google Play store called iPhone 4S Screen. As the name suggests, once installed this application will theme your Android device to look like it’s running Apple’s iOS! Now, like many of the themes in Cydia for jailbroken iOS devices, iPhone 4S Screen doesn’t totally change the feel and look of your device and it certainly doesn’t install iOS.

This theme simply gives the illusion of iOS. The home screen looks just like the iPhone, but tapping any of the apps brings up the non-themed Android app. There are a number of iOS-inspired themes to choose from, ranging from the classic Apple look to a cool monochrome blue that looks like a jailbroken iPhone rather than Android Ice Cream Sandwich. There’s even a Siri application… but it doesn’t work.

This app has been downloaded over a million times from the Google Play store, and currently boasts an average rating of 4.1 stars with 9,448 reviews – pretty impressive. If you’re interested in making your Android device look a little more like the iPhone you’ve always wanted, you can check iPhone 4S Screen out here. Chances are Apple won’t let this one go for long, so I’d grab it sooner rather than later.

And, before the angry comments start pouring in, it is worth noting that there are quite a few themes and apps for iPhones that replicate Android functions. Still, though, this hasn’t even been out for a month and it’s already surpassed a million downloads… ’nuff said.

    I downloaded it like 2 months ago, most definitely not new. It was last updated on April 9th, if that was date you were looking at…

    It’s not that new, and couple that with the fact that there have been many other home screen replacements that emulate the iOS look.

    Question is: Can iOS users get a taste of Android on their devices?

  • Ice Cream Sandwich has amazing improvements. Ice Cream Sandwich really showing how much is Ice Cream Sandwich a precious jewel and made for real humans. Google stands in-front of everyone in future development and Creative thinking. thanks Google.
