[APP] Launcher3 w/ Working Landscape

This is a build of Launcher3 from AOSP corrected to properly display icons and folders in Landscape. "Properly" is a bit of a misnomer. I fixed it by reducing the size of icons for Flo. I think the correct fix is deeper than that, but haven't found that yet. Anyway, it doesn't cut icons off and works pretty well.

Things to know:

- This is the 4.4 Launcher, but it is not the GEL. There is no Google Now integration at all. (and the long-press Settings icon does nothing)
- The Quick Search Bar will not display after you switch to Landscape. Pressing Home while in Landscape makes it pop up.

UPDATE: The apk linked below is more current than the one attached. It's built with no minSdk restriction and should work on 4.2 or above. (It definitely needs 4.2)

Forgot to mention that this is built for minSdkVersion=19 (4.4) because that is what it's set to in AOSP. I don't actually know if that affects installing from an APK, but I can probably build it for 18 if anyone wants. That should work since it does for the GEL. (I know it needs 16 at least from things I noticed playing around in it)

There's a link to an APK with no version limitation in the OP. I've been told it doesn't install on CM 10.2, but I was able to install (but not run) it on my ICS phone. (I have no devices with JB installed currently.) And again, it does absolutely need 4.2.

Sorry. Not sure what was wrong with that apk. Updated the link with one which I'm 99% sure will work, and including it below. I tested this one on my Stock 4.3 N7 and it does work. (No transparency) There's no reason it shouldn't on 4.4. It's technically modded a bit, but that's all mostly broken and disabled in this build. I'll be releasing that soon.

Yes, But note this has None of the Google Now Integration.

I can also confirm that the medfiafire linked APK works fine on Stock 4.4.
