Install Android 4.4 KitKat with the Stock Apps on your Android Phone

The Android 4.4 KitKat OS was just launched alongside the flagship smartphone Nexus 5 from Google, and it comes with some excellent new and very much refreshed applications which one would want to try right away. Most of these apps would make the experience of the Android OS different and better, and not just the users, but the mobile enthusiasts and general reviewers would look to make the best out of the OS.

For someone who actually wanted to have an entire experience and walk through of the new OS version, there are several apps that you need to install and make it look like a totally new ROM on your device. The apps that we have got, would enhance not just the user experience but the change for the developers to make something on the basis of this new UI that is to come in several devices very soon.

There are obviously quite a lot of changes, and you need to just save the launcher as the default one after the installation, and it’s read to go. If at all you have a problem while installing the APK files, it’s because of the permissions to install the external apps. For that, you would need to go to Settings > Security and under the administrator settings, allow the installation of apps from external sources. That would help in the app installation.

If you are already using one of the stock ROMs, like the earlier Android versions in Nexus devices, it won’t be much different but still yes you get to experience the Android KitKat on any Android phone of yours. Don’t expect that to replace everything. And if at all it isn’t installing well on your smartphone, don’t over-try it as there would be some compatibility issues, like the “Clock” app which wasn’t opening in the LG G2.

Here are a few screenshot comparisons showing how the Interface changes after the installation of the Android 4.4 KitKat apps on your Android phone, and it’s the LG G2 smartphone which we tried this on, thus the changes are well noticeable. The stock apps look quite neat as always, and we expect them to do the best job when you talk of compatibility, but lets see which devices the actual KitKat version is heading to, in the coming time.

This could be pretty useful and helpful to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus users who are already disappointed by the reason that Google isn’t sending the KitKat update to the Galaxy Nexus as it crossed the 18-month window period.
