Holo Launcher is a launcher based on Ice Cream Sandwich which uses icons, folders, tabs, and the like, all with a similar aesthetic which gives a traditional look to your Android device.
This launcher does not only change the appearance of the interface, of course, but also includes other features, as well. For starters, Holo Launcher lets you customize your desktop with up to nine pages with a grid of ten by ten.
The dock of the interface is completely customizable, too, and lets you scroll, so you can put up to seven icons on each of the three pages.
Other features allow you to set up shortcuts, like sliding your finger up and down to open an application, for example. You can also pinch the screen to see a preview of the different desktops you have configured on your device.
Your device wasn’t and won’t be updated to ICS and you don’t know (and you’re not interested in) custom ROMS. However, you like how ICS looks like. No worries: that happened to lot of people. And apps like Holo Launcher comes up to fulfill that expectations.
Holo Launcher is a home replacement that can be launch in any Android version. It emulates Holo-layout and ICS interface. Dock, effects, app drawer and many other options will make you feel like if you were really running ICS on your device. Let’s focus on its main features.
First off, it allows you to set up to 9 desktop pages and changes grid (till 10×10 grid). Likewise, its Holo-like dock support up to 7 icons and its scrollable (3 pages). You can enable infinite scrolling for desktop, drawer and dock. It also brings gestures to perform some action. For example you can set swipe up/down on desktop to launch apps quickly or display status bar. Pinch to access desktop previews, choose transition effects, set background transparency and many more. Once done you can backup/restore your preset.
In a few words: a launcher with Holo-layout, highly customizable and which runs smoothly. Highly recommendable.
Holo Launcher is a very powerful launcher that will appeal to those who are familiar with Ice Cream Sandwich, and will not only make the terminal look better but also provide a few other interesting features.
