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

Let the dev know about your experiences with the launcher by leaving a comment. Thanks for reading.

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
