[APP][UPDATE:18/8] TencentDesktop - MIUI Style Launcher (腾讯桌面 腾讯)

Here is the translation of Tencent's Tencent Desktop.
Note: I didn't make this app, I just translated it using UziTech's Android Translator

What is Tencent Desktop?

Tencent Desktop is a translation of the Chinese Dev's MIUI Style Launcher. it doesn't have an app drawer, has some MIUI icons, supports themes and has iPhone/MIUI lookalike folders. It runs very smoothly on slow phones (such as my LG GT540) and has a dockbar with up to 4 icon support.

Market description, translated:
Tencent Desktop for Chinese users accustomed to fully optimize the user desktop experience is an easy to use, compact, convenient and reliable, the most simple and efficient, beautiful, professional mobile desktop.

Download
Download from XDA

|SO FAR OLD VERSION: |
| Download from my Dropbox (mirror)|
--------------------------------------------------------

Note: This new version is pre-signed

Installation note: If you get "application not installed" backup your current Tencent Desktop's layout in the settings & the app in Titanium backup, uninstall and install the new version.

TO DO

  • Possibly link it to Google's weather service for worldwide weather from built in widget
  • Translate some more hidden stuff (may link to online?)
  • Landscape?
  • Support for English theme names
  • Fix dimensions (dimensions.xml)

FAQ
1. I've noticed an error in translation. What do I do?
A. Post it here. I may just fix it. (I know about the "A key clean" one)

2. How do you get the transparent bar?
A. Look up ZduneX25's MIUI theme & patch on XDA.

3. What is that widget?
A. GO Weather with the MIUI theme

4. How do you translate an app?
A. Decompile it in apktool, find strings.xml, copy it's text into the UziTech translator (see top) and follow the instructions there.


Thank's for reading! :D

Dude, how did you enable transparency? I mean, I already have transparency in my ROM but while in ADW Launcher, I need to disable wallpaper hack in order to have transparent, I looked on the Tools + Preferences and didn't saw anything. If you could get me that, I would be including this into my ROM (of course, with your permission).

You have my permission(I didn't make it originally though)
Download MultiPicture Live Wallpaper from the market & set it to single picture and your wallpaper. Now it's transparent when you set it as live wallpaper

This launcher is in chinese for me. Even after a reboot. Is there an English version of it?

And thank you to the person who shared the other launcher similar to this one in the thread. Pressing thanks button coming.
