Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way!

Ice Cream Sandwich Launcher
We started to see the first ICS ROMs on a few devices but for the majority, ports are not available just yet. In the meantime, you can test a launcher that simulates the UI of the upcoming OS. It features:
– ICS Wallpaper Chooser with 9 wallpapers
– Hide Notification Bar (Gesture/Swipe up)
– ICS Settings
– ICS Styled Google Search Bar
– Icy Blue ICS Analog clock
– Hide Labels
It claims that if you have a proper set up, the launcher is extremely fast and smooth.
So, if you can´t wait for ICS, this a is good placebo in the meantime, which you can find it in the usual place.
Let the dev know about your experiences with the launcher by leaving a comment. Thanks for reading.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
