Ice Cream Sandwich‘s launcher is a step up from any other launcher UI out there. There are even some that have taken its greatness even further, like Nova Launcher for instance. However back in December we wrote about a launcher that could make all other launchers feel like child’s play. That launcher, the TSF Shell Pro 3D Launcher. I’ve been drooling over it ever since we first touched upon the launcher. If you haven’t seen our initial article and have no idea why I am drooling over it then go check it out. I’ll wait. Back? Good, continuing on.
For those that have been and are now newly waiting for this to drop on the world we have good news for you. If the developer’s web site has anything to tell us we will see it in eight days. That’s right Leap Day, February 29th, the day we only see every four years, will be the day we see this launcher. If you still haven’t checked out our initial piece please, again, head here to do so. It has some amazing screenshots of TSF Shell PRO 3D in action. Otherwise, hit the break below to check out the original trailer in all its glory. I sure hope that it drops a week from tomorrow. How about you? Read more
With over abundance of good launcher replacements out there it’s hard to find one with enough calibur to blow any of the rest of them out of the water. However there are some that just come along that do that and more. Take TSF Shell Pro for instance. It is a new launcher in active development by a group called C3D. TSF stands for The Special Forces and from what I have seen of this new launcher, the name fits.
TSF Shell Pro brings so many things to the table that it is hard to mention them all. So after I mention a few of them I will let the eight minute video do the talking. A few features include 3D widgets with interactive modes and animations, multi-touch rotation, and free-style, drag and drop positioning.
There is no release date and even though it is currently in active development there doesn’t appear to be a date in sight. However we do have that eight minute video we promised to tide you over. Check it and the screenshots out after the break and let us know what you think. Read more
If you know me at all, you know what I like most about Android it the ability to customize your phone and make it exactly the kind of phone you want it to be. A few days ago we gave you a rundown of LauncherPro — a great custom launcher for the Android OS. Well, there’s a fairly new entry into the custom launcher game, and Go Launcher EX is currently one of AppBrain’s hottest downloads. Is it better than LauncherPro? Is it the custom launcher you’re looking for? Read on. Read more
We’ve talked a lot about LauncherPro, which even received an update today, but never really featured it in the spotlight. LauncherPro, as the name suggests, is a custom launcher that can be installed on your Android device to take the place of your built-in launcher. Whether you run the stock Android interface, TouchWiz, SenseUI, or any other interface, LauncherPro could offer you the option to customize the way your phone looks and runs. Available in both a free and paid version, ultimately it gives you control over your own interface, from customizing the look and number of homescreens to application dock behavior.
Windows Phone 7 has recently hit the market, and while it’s launch has been met with mixed reviews, it’s certainly made a noticeable splash. I actually have a good friend who just picked up a Windows Phone 7 phone — and don’t get me started on how awkward that is to say. There’s no question where I’ve cast my vote…I adore the Android OS. That said, I respect options. (This of course explains why I’ve chosen Android, but that’s another article entirely.) So what does Windows Phone 7 has to offer? Its claim to fame is that its “start menu” puts everything right at your fingertips. So what if this concept were brought to Android? Read more
