A vertical launcher. It will, hopefully, allow you to use shortcuts, widgets and info tiles. And skins.
I plan to build something that looks like IidaHome, but more flexible (more info on IidaHome here and here)
(These themes are available on the download page)
Icon themes: use ADW's!
- Long start-up time is long!
- Lacks many sexy effects.
Create Your Own Theme!
The default template you can see in the above pictures is available in source code on GitHub
It is very easy to adapt to create your own. Ask me for help if you have to!
My phone used to rock IidaHome launcher.
Of course, being a rip from a Japanese phone, users are asking for new features, etc., but, really, we do not have access to the source code and adding any feature is an exercise in hacking smali files.
I like vertical launchers but the Windows 7 copies, although quite sexy, only offer a limited number of apps per row and are limited by their reference launcher's own UI choices (Metro UI)
So, I started work on my own launcher (the mere fact of writing this sentence makes me feel embarrassed for re-inventing the wheel)
