Default bottom deck/icon app

hi i saw from somewhere where you can have numerous docked icons for the bottom row where normally just the 4+1 buttons.

not sure if its an app or widget or rom.
Can anyone verify?

Anything related to the dock, home screen or app drawer is due to the launcher used.
What you're referring is a scrollable dock where you can have many rows of docks when you swipe. Apex launcher has it and many others too.

Im using Nova Launcher and you can set how many apps you want in the dock, plus you can swipe the dock left and right for extra docks.

after trying few launchers around.

GO LAUNCHER is probably the best so far due to popularity (hence more themes), i can actually make everything look transparent and neat

But there is one really annoying point when used on ICS4 devices, which is that there is no option to disable/hide the menu bar on the bottom of the screen.

here are my screens:
