HeLauncher2:

Simplicity has a love/hate relationship.

HeLauncher2 is a home replacement for the mobile operating system known as Android. The home application is the center piece to the users entire Android experience. Device manufacturers like to modify the home application to give the user a different feel for their device, to make their specific device stand out against the crowd.

What makes this home replacement different is the dev has gone and ripped apart multiple proprietary home applications from the manufactures and blended them together into one home application that can replicate them all with one button.

Features:
- Based off of AOSP Launcher2 from 2.3.4
- Three custom themes (Gingerbread, Sense 3.0, Touchwiz 4.0, ALL THE REST FROM He1)
- Transition animations for the desktop
- Blocked applications manager
- More new settings picked for Android users by Android users

What's in this version:
Lots of small bug fixes
Added screen indicator location preference

HeLauncher is a home replacement for Android. The home application is the center piece to the users entire Android experience. Device manufacturers like to modify the home application to give the user a different feel for their device, to make their specific device stand out against the crowd.

What makes this home replacement different is that all docks included in this app, have been ripped from home applications from the main manufacturers and blended into one home application.

There are no massive options or settings menus, to try to keep things simple and stock. There are also features that competitors would only make available to the paid versions of their applications.

HeLauncher is free and open-sourced, you can find the source repository on github. If you have any input feel free to provide it.

Features:
- Based off of Launcher +
- 5 Screens
- Scrollable Widgets
- Re-sizeable Widgets
- Screen Indicators
- 10 Custom docks (Gingerbread, Froyo, Sense, Slate, Music, Blackboard, Espresso, Blur, Ninja, Samurai)
- Flick up to hide status bar

What's in this version: 1.5.4
Added live wallpaper interaction
Increased application drawer speed
Increased style selection gallery scroll speed

Coming Soon:
- 3D App Drawer

Looks realy great ;-9
If you installe HeLauncher, what about the HTC widgets?
Does the HTC widgets still work or is it like when you use ADWLauncher that most of them, eg. People Widget, don't work anymore?

It's not smooth, it lags really bad when scrolling.

Enable bounce option is pretty strange.

The concept is pretty good but it needs a lot of work to polish it. Keep up the good work !

I really do like this launcher however as with any app of fine taste there is room for improvement. I like how simplistic and light it is, and with the death of Zeam we need another launcher of this magnitude.

However there is a need for performance improvements for scrolling it seems to lag a bit and isn't as smooth as it should be being as lightweight as it is.

The next issue lies with the bounce effect and the ability to use both it and the screen position thing on the top. When using the bounce effect with it when it bounces it says you're on the right screen then when it bounces back it says you are back on the previous screen and then moves back to the appropriate location.

    has anyone else tried installing this in System/App? I pulled the APK and put it in there and it didn't work.. curious if anyone has had success as I would like to have this as my default/only launcher..
