Google Has an App to Turn You Into an Android

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 15 comments

Androidify yourself.

Andy the Android is the iconic mascot for the mobile operating system. It's pretty remarkable when you consider that a piece of utilitarian software can have a mascot – but it happened with Google's phone OS.

Now there's an Android app for you to make yourself an android too. It's essentially like making a Nintendo Wii-style Mii, but with Android design cues. Only time will tell if they'll catch on the same way.

    Great first the Mii then the Xbox avatar and now You Android. Personally I do not care but it is still a nice option to have.

    i think its great! Nice to see Google is doing more than pumping out fart apps and Icons that look like they were manufactured by Matel........unlike some others.

    Upbeat and friendly, nicely done commercial Google. I enjoyed that ad more than the last 2 movies I watched.
