7 great Android apps that will make your phone more like Android L

Android L Features

Google’s upcoming new version of Android is an absolutely gorgeous reimagining of the company’s mobile operating system. Dubbed “Material Design,” Google has employed a new design identity throughout the user interface that makes Android L far more beautiful and approachable than the OS has ever been in the past. While Apple has done a great job of flattening its iOS platform in an effort to modernize it, Google is taking a different approach, adding different levels to the UI that combine with new graphics to create a great experience.

The problem, of course, is that Android L won’t be available until sometime this fall and even then, there’s no telling when vendors will finally start updating their phones. Luckily, you don’t have to wait to get some of the awesome new elements from Android L on your current smartphone.
