Developer brings Metro UI look to Android tablets

Owners of the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 got a unique take on the interface this week with a new modification from BroBot175 for a look inspired by Windows 8's Metro UI. The Android tablet needs to be rooted using the ClockworkMod recovery, and the project is in a beta stage. It will also work on the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer.

The styling slightly differs from the original Windows 8 design for self-explanatory reasons. The developer said he is constantly working on the app, and has recently added support for Android 4.0. He is also developing more widgets that will bring added functionality to the mod. Due to come in the future is a full system theme and support for more tablets. [via GottaBeMobile]
