[APP] HelixLauncher2

While browsing the Nexus One Forum, this application popped out at me. The application is a launcher and automatic rotator. It allows your menus to be rotated quickly, and the best part of it is the app launcher on the bottom of the screen. That is truly the best part about the application: just simply drag and drop apps to the launcher.

Modified Launcher2 features:
Based on Launcher2 from Cyan’s git
iPhone/Hero-like Scrolling
Fully fixed auto rotation
App Menu Button Long Press -> Quick Switcher
Up to 7 screens! NEW!
Long-press at desktop as an option
Drag & Drop bottom shortcuts NEW!
Commented Code (where I remembered I changed)

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015.
