If you are not following them, please be sure to visit them and explore the wonderful things you can possibly do with your cellphone. They have been working on a project that goes by the name Playview for CardsUI.  This is an open-sourced project which basically aims to mimic the aesthetics of Google Play Store and the cards.

PlayView for CardsUI

Many of the developers have been working hard to achieve their goals and all the progress  is documented on the forums so if you are interested to know how the project is coming along, you might want to visit the original thread in order to find out more. Any major progress that is made to the application is uploaded to Github for other developers and users to play with. This ensures creativity and some outside help as well. All the libraries are completely open-sourced so basically anyone with the knowledge of development in this sector can contribute easily to the project and if you think you are one of them, please be sure to visit the original thread in order to be of help. The fascinating thing about this project revolves around the basic philosophy of XDA which is to incorporate themselves socially, bringing a community together, sharing and helping one another out as much as they possibly can. In the end of course the results are better and we all get to enjoy the piece of work. There have been other projects that borough the Android families closer via XDA such as the CyanogenMod, FreeXperia and AOKP etc., these were all projects undertaken by different teams and they lent tremendously to the Android society. This particular project is meant to do the same and the best part is that it should be compatible with every single Android device unlike the specific branded projects previously undertaken.

One thing you should understand is that this is still a work in progress, and there is still time before it is refined and released. If you are willing to check it out, and help or keep tabs, please make sure to visit the original thread. Let us know what you think.
