  • 2013 came without much info regarding Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the occasional concept UI, right? Alan McGarrity imagines the way that the future OS release will look like and we have to say that this degree of simplicity is certainly welcome.


    McGarrity thinks that there should be 3 main areas of the Home experience: a homescreen with non-removable widget, an app board triggered straight from the home screen and a widget board accessible to the left of the Home area. The designer also envisions a transparent non-removable widget for Google Now, that’s always there, in the background. In this vision of Android 5.0 Google Now shuffles its results based on the things you’re into and it’s displayed proeminently when you open your handset.

    McGrarrity also redesigned the stock apps, as shown below, including the phone calling applications. Everything is smooth and sleek, plus even more minimalist and simple, a trend that Google has been following all along. This seems to be the handset version of the concept and I’m curious about a possible tablet version. What do you think of this Key Lime Pie concept?
