Chameleon Launcher is a homescreen replacement which focus on widgets

  • Original
  • Smooth
  • Chameleon widgets (and widget edition tool)
  • App tray
  • Widget highlights based on context system
  • Better on large screen devices
  • Better on medium/high-end devices
  • There's not a trial version

"Who said homescreens are useless?"

Chameleon Launcher has been for quite a long time only available for Android tablets. That's mainly due to Chameleon its a widget-oriented launcher, so it needed (and still needs) large screens. Smartphones' displays are today large enough: most of them can be considered "phablets" (phone tablets). Anyway, I recommend to use it on 4-inch devices.

The idea backing Chameleon launcher is "everything accessible from the homescreen". Consequently, besides regular Android widgets, Chameleon provides a dozen of specific widgets of most used apps: Facebook, Gmail, G , Calendar, Feeds, Twitter, Weather, etc.

In addition, users can create their own widgets using Chameleon platform. Any app that supports widgets can get their Chameleon launcher to be placed on your homescreen. Obviously, regular widget can also be added as they were a Chameleon launcher (actually they are adapted to the Chameleon layout). Widgets are fully customizable: background, size, refresh interval, etc.

What's more, Chameleon launcher allows users to create multiple 'home', each one with its widgets and its screens. Different 'home' for different context. The app drawer is divided in three categories: apps, shortcuts and folders. Horizontal-scrolling and a guaranteed smooth response.

The only catch of Chameleon launcher is that isn't really comfy on lower than 4-inch display devices to place, see and manage widgets and, on the other hand, it won't run as smooth as desired on low/medium-end devices when overloading it with screens and widgets.

Regardless, Chameleon is really worth its price.
