Jelly Bean theme allows Android devices to have iOS 7 look

With iOS 7′s recent announcement, Apple’s new operating system has been the talk of tech nerds everywhere. While iOS developers have been able to use the beta for a few days now, it seems as if Android users wanted in on the iOS 7 fun, and surprisingly, they are not left out.

The new theme for Jelly Bean is a combination of customized icons that look exactly like Apple’s new stock application’s icons, as well as the use of Nova Launcher, which is available in the Google Play Store. Below is the explanation from the designer of the theme:

Apple unveiled their next generation iOS 7 on June 10, but it won’t come to iPhone until the fall. Luckily if you have a Android phone it is released to you today, June 11! This is the first time Android has beat Apple to a release with jbOS 7 (jelly bean OS 7).

This is one homescreen with apps and two special additional screens that act as apps. When you click the calendar it takes you to the calendar screen. Same goes for the weather icon. It also has a very similar style iOS 7 lock screen to complete the whole look.

While this will not give you an actual feel of iOS 7, the design looks eerily similar to the new iPhone OS. If you’re an Android user, you can check out the theme here.

What do you think of this new Android theme? If you’re an Android user, will you give it a try?

    Pretty cool, and kinda funny. For years, jailbreak fans try their hardest to make iOS just like Android, and now the opposite is true.
