App Space: A beautiful way to launch your favorite apps

Tired of searching for your apps in heaps of similar small rectangles? Introducing App Space –a beautiful way to launch your apps!

With app space, you use your apps as if they were physical objects arranged in a beautifully designed space.

There's also a little peak behind the scenes, check it out...
The making of App Space | The idea

Tired of searching for your apps among dozens of similar small rectangles? With the App Space widget, you can launch your favorite apps as if they were physical items, arranged in a beautiful personal space!
☆ Changes the way you use your phone - without actually changing your phone!
☆ Launch your favorite apps from beautifully crafted pictures, full of clickable items.
☆ Make your own associations: assign any app on your phone to the item *you* associate it with.
☆ Launch as many as 27 apps from a single screen!
☆ Widget technology: place an App Space on any of your home screens.
☆ Need more space? No problem! Arrange as many App Space widgets as you like on your home screens.
☆ Give yourself some space! Download more beautiful spaces from our App Space theme gallery.
This app works mainly as a widget. That means you don't have to run it - it's always active on your home screen (isn't that neat?) After installation, just find or create an empty home-screen, long press anywhere, choose "widgets" and locate the App Space widget.
[The exact process may vary according to your specific phone model. If you're having problems, just drop us an email at, and we'll be happy to help.]
NOTE: App Space isn't currently supported on tablets bigger than 7''. Samsung Galaxy Mini also not supported. If you're experiencing technical issues, please let us know! We're working on making App Space available for all devices.

But I'm curious if we can use custom images as backgrounds. It'd be great to use a picture of my room.

forgive me if i sound naive here, but i'm just trying to understand the full potential of this app. How is this different from making your own picture and putting shortcuts behind transparent icons ? Doing it this way you can have any picture you want and not be restricted to whatever is available in the app. Am I missing something ?
Anyway, sounds like a good idea and hope it's successful for you..

This could be a perfect lockcreen widget in 4.2 devices.
I've try to force the use (AOKP feature) but there's some problems with the resize behaviour

I think you need only few line of code to make it one of the best lock screen app, hope to see an update soon!
