"An ICS coat to your non-ICS support device"

Reviewed by / Jun 05, 2012

Holo Launcher is a simple home replacement which looks like ICS stock launcher

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 10x10 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.

    For no reason, it forcecloses, I gave it priority, made it resident, in my system, and gave it a higher priority, than most(except for crucial system apps). I even set in launcher, for memory. Adjusted oom settings to make sure(6), yet no dice. Otherwise, it's a good launcher.
