We have been talking about launchers for quite a while in the Portal as they seem to be what drives people from one UI type to the next. Many of us like mixing and matching different styles, but the only way to actually be able to use other launchers is to install them and switch back and forth whenever we want to use the other. This is somewhat cumbersome as you will have several UI’s loaded in your device simultaneously, which will reduce the amount of available resources on your device (storage and RAM). XDA member makav3ll1 points us to a very interesting application created by XDA member HandlerExploit. Basically, the dev ripped out all the launchers from all the different devices and lumped them into one single launcher with the ability to switch between them seamlessly. No more installing various UIs if you just want to change the look of your launcher.
The project is open source and free. So, please share your feedback and if you have something that could be added, please share that as well.
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.
You can find more information in the launcher thread.
