* Attention * Android TV of "All version" can not use this app as home app! When google's apps are updated, they change system settings automatically and stop to use other than default home app. Even it's older than Android 6.0...
[Update 2017/04/08] Following command was banned by Google's security update.
$ adb shell pm hide com.google.android.leanbacklauncher
So, if you was using HALauncher as home app by this, maybe OS would be unstable. Sorry.
* Attention * Android TV 7.1.1 has some problems. "Landscape lock" and "Blue Light Filter" are not working fine...
"HALauncher" is a launcher for displaying and opening non-Android TV applications quickly on the Nexus Player, ADT-1, Nvidia Shield and the Razor Forge, Fire TV.
Usually, Android TV's home launcher doesn't show sideloaded apps. By using the "HALauncher", you can display and run apps designed for smartphones and tablets using a 1-click operation.
You can use this app as your home launcher instead of default launcher. Please select this setting in "HALauncher Settings" preference. Android TV's launcher and the HALauncher can co-exist.
This launcher is recommended for all users who sideload apps and all apps will be available in the “Apps List” section.
HALauncher was designed using Android 5.0 material Design so it fits right in with the Android TV. It is highly customizable allowing you to change the color scheme, background graphic, icon graphic, add widgets to the home screen and remove the side panel completely to facilitate a cleaner home screen appearance.
HALauncher lets you lock the screen orientation to horizontal and create shortcuts to applications, webpages, IPTV channels and videos stored on your harddrive by using the “Create Shortcut” feature.
If you sideload apps on any Android TV device, you need HALauncher!
