Not too long ago, we talked about the HTC Sense-like DO Launcher. But at the time, XDA Recognized Developer doga.ozkaraca‘s application was in early alpha stage, and had much that needed to be done. Then, HTC found out about the developer’s work and decided to send a DMCA letter to take the launcher out of the Play Store.
Despite the hurdles, the developer didn’t give up and decided to make a new version of the launcher with quite a bit reworked, as well as much more stability. A few options have been added like a share button in news reader. And since the developer estimates that 80% of the bugs have been fixed, he now calls the current version a beta. The launcher itself hasn’t changed much since its initial release. Users are still able to read their RSS feeds on their home screens, check the weather forecast, and basically enjoy a Sense 5-like experience on non-HTC devices.
To check out the HTC lookalike launcher on your device, make your way to the application thread and give DO Launcher a shot._________
