Give Any Android The Gift Of Honeycomb With Honeycomb Launcher Beta

After all the ports from SDK, all the themes and skins to resemble it, one would think that the Honeycomb interface (and really the overall OS) is slowly taking the world of Android by storm. with this in mind, many devs are working tirelessly to get a much more similar feeling in devices that cannot support the tablet-oriented OS. However, XDA member IntelSoftApps brings us a step closer to getting the full HC experience on Android devices sporting 2.0 and up. Honeycomb Launcher Beta is not a skin overlay like many other Honeycomb launchers out there. This one gives you the full experience with smooth transitions, animations, menus, and much more. The graphics and visuals in general will be made prettier in future revisions, but the devs are focusing mostly on functionality at this point, which is the biggest hurdle. Aesthetics should always come in second place in any development and that is how the dev is doing things.

Please leave some detailed feedback if you decide to try out this new UI.

We have developed a new launcher once again! This is not the standard launcher that everyone makes. This is a Honeycomb Launcher. This launcher basically clones Android 3.0 Honeycomb as best as possible! Although this launcher is new, it clones Android 3.0 very well. Every update will bring more resemblance to0!

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
