Tencent Launcher Translated to English, Brings Simplified, Quick Experience
There is a vast selection of launchers out there. It doesn’t matter what you’re looking for, there is a launcher out there for you. Even so, more launchers are released all the time to help fill the gaps the others may leave behind. Recently, a launcher called Tencent Launcher was translated to English for people to use.
XDA Recognized Contributor melvinchng went through the trouble of translating the Chinese version to English for users. Otherwise, it remains exactly the same as the free Google Play Store version. The features include:
Quick launcher widget (power widget)
Built in clock widget
Folder in Home screen
Unlimited apps in a Folder
Transition animation in app drawer
Transition animation in home screen
Flip Clock <<< SMOOTH
Installation should be easy. Simply install the APK as normal. If you’re looking for a nice, simple, and quick browser, this may be an option for you. Unfortunately, there are no themes available, and the weather widget may be permanently stuck displaying Beijing’s weather until a fix can be found. Otherwise, users have reported that it works pretty well.
For additional details, check out the application thread.
