The best three Android interface apps

We help you decide which interface to download for your Android-based smartphone or tablet

kovdev: Nox and Lumos

kovdev's mission statement is “to provide users with an assortment of design options to personalise their Android devices,” and it delivers on this. The Dave Kover and Ben Lee combo has created a series of icon packs which complement Action Launcher Pro.

The only problem is selecting which one to download as they cost $US2.23 each.

The first and second screenshots in this slide are of the Nox and Lumos apps, respectively. Nox contains very simply square icons with a hint of a shadow from each. Lumos is reminiscent of Apple's round-edged icons.

All of kovdev's designs are very similar to the originals, but offer a unique twist. Not all icons are supported, though; those which have not yet been addressed utilise the app's default look with a border. Credit must be given to kovdev for very frequent updates which are rolled out at virtually the same time to the team's full portfolio.

The best part is that there is not only one messaging icon or one phone icon -- a full arsenal is at hand, allowing you to further customise your experience.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
