Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

HeLauncher Updated to Version 2
It had been a while since featured Launchers here in the Portal. And, since we found out that there was a new version of HeLauncher out in the open, we simply had to put it out there. XDA member TheMuffStuff points us to this new and improved version of HeLauncher, which comes at us packed with new features and capabilities to make our Android experiences better. The launcher features an expanded selection of settings for maximum customizability, different home screen transition animations, fully tremble with 3 themes to choose from, and a lot more.
The new UI is still under heavy development and as such, some bugs are to be expected. Leaving your feedback will certainly help the dev tackle any open issues. So, please do your part.
- Based off of AOSP Launcher2 from 2.3.4
- Three custom themes (Gingerbread, Sense 3.0, Touchwiz 4.0, ALL THE REST FROM He1)
- Transition animations for the desktop
- Blocked applications manager
- More new settings picked for Android users by Android users
