Android 5.0 Lollipop is a huge upgrade for Google’s mobile operating system. The only problem with it, of course, is that it’s only available for a handful of devices. Most Android smartphone users still have plenty more waiting to do before Lollipop is finally available for their handset, but now there’s a terrific app that will make your older version of Android look just like Lollipop — and it’s free!

Android developers LL App Group recently updated their app, which is appropriately dubbed L Launcher. There are a few different options out there when it comes to making older versions of Android look and act like Lollipop, but this is probably the best one we’ve seen so far. Also, it’s completely free and doesn’t require root access.

The app’s full description can be found below along with a link to download it.
