"Who said homescreens are useless?"

Reviewed by / Dec 02, 2013

Chameleon Launcher is a homescreen replacement which focus on widgets

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.

Chameleon Launcher is a Home Screen replacement. This version will run on both phones and tablet devices. It lets you create multiple home screens, each with your own layout of Widgets and Apps. The Chameleon app includes an innovative context based home screen system giving you the most relevant information you want - when you want it.

The Next Generation of Widgets.

Android widgets are not all created equally - and that's the problem - so we decided to raise the bar. The result is widgets that look beautiful together and are as easy to layout as drawing on a screen. Take a look at some of our other widgets or build your own with our custom API.

    Ugly, slow and dead. One of the worst launchers I've tried. Stay away, you have been warned.

    Widgets never updated, not even the first time. I took too long to uninstall to get my refund.

    Spend your money elsewhere folks. This project is dead. I believed the hype, & purchased this weak, buggy launcher. Patiently awaited further development, and received nothing. It looked promising, but without any further refinement, it's just crap.

    This launcher is clean and sleek, not cartoonish like other launchers.

    Sad most of us bought this expensive app, I am talking $10.00 with all the promises only to be left abandon and not receive updates for a long time. It is very limited what you can do with this launcher. Do not waste your money. Get a better launcher else where.
