You may recall a few months back that we spoke about a new launcher/UI called Claystone, developed by XDA member claystoneinc. Well, the project didn’t die, and in fact, it got better and better over the last few months. Just in case you don’t recall, Claystone 3D is a panel-type UI, which allows you to put all of your content, running apps, and even your apps drawer, into panels that can be accessed by a few touches and slides on the screen. It looks like the devs behind this decided to make a few major overhauls of the whole concept, such as how you access the panels, addition of more content, etc. One of the major upgrades includes a 3D preview of all your active panels, which looks quite good (think of Sense panel previews, but in 3D). The overall end result looks quite promising.
The dev is still looking for lots of feedback to keep improving this new UI. Please make sure that you pay a visit to the thread or get it from the market. In either case, feedback and opinions on performance, bugs, and suggestions are much appreciated.
For those not familiar, we’ve attempted to go beyond the standard launcher apps by placing all your content (App Drawer, File Browser, Web Browser, etc) into panels that can be easily stacked atop another and swiped through.
You can find more information in the original thread.
