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.

Chameleon doesn't just let you customize your Home Screens with the widgets you want. It also lets you customize your own mini App Tray. Giving you the apps you want up front, without having to swim through a large grid of apps.
Super Easy To Customize

Chameleon. Always relevant. Immediately valuable.
Es extraordinariamente simple e intuitivo de usar:
1. Toca uno de los bordes preestablecidos de la pantalla;
2. Mueve el dedo hacia el centro de la pantalla para que el pad aparezca;
3. Suelta el dedo sobre una ranura para ejecutar.
¡Eso es todo! Esto llevará tus multitareas a un nuevo nivel :)

★ Esta no es una aplicación de inicio. Tu botón de inicio se mantiene (funciona con cualquier aplicación de inicio como LauncherPro, ADW Launcher, etc.)
★ La aplicación bajo SwipePad sigue corriendo: no hay interrupción.

Drag down from the top left corner of your screen and orbs will fall into place, giving you quick access to various features of your phone. Call and text friends, launch your favorite apps via shortcuts, control music, and more using the various orbs.
SAO is built to be extendable. There are many free and paid themes and extensions available in the Store. Themes update the images, sounds, and fonts used in the app creating a completely different experience. Extensions, on the other hand, are additional orbs that appear when downloading other apps. SMS, for example, is a free extension for phones.
Both themes and extensions have an API for those who want to truly customize the experience. The documentation is still in it's infancy, so don't feel afraid to email us at email@example.com for additional help or to submit an app to the Store.
Q: Can I help translate the app to my language?
A: Sure! You can now help out with translating using Localize ( https://www.localize.im/v/dq ).
Q: Can I help test new features or recommend ideas?
A: Of course! Join our community ( https://plus.google.com/communities/106623201559847991380 ) and, if you're interested in being on the cutting edge, sign up for Testing. We'll do our best to address bugs promptly.
Q: How do I use themes?
A: Install the theme, then go into Options, Themes. You should see it as a choice aside Default.
Q: My extensions aren't working (or... anything isn't working).
A: Try rebooting. If it still doesn't work, feel free to send us an email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or report it in the community.
Q: Why can't I uninstall the app?
A: It's probably set as a Device Administrator (an old feature from Log Out). Go into Settings, Security, Device Administrators, and uncheck SAO Launcher.
Q: Why is log out missing?
A: Log out required Device Administrator, which made it difficult to uninstall the app.
Q: How do I get sms to pop up?
A: Install the SMS extension - it's another app, you can find it in the Store.
Q: Why is there a delay launching the app after pressing the Home button?
A: Android introduces a 5sec delay for all services after the Home button is pressed. There is no way to get around this.
Q: Why can't I click under the swipe area?
A: It's an anti-keylogging feature of Android's. There is no way to get around this.
Q: Why do I still see my old SMS notifications after installing the extension?
A: I can't touch another app's notifications. Luckily, the default SMS app lets you disable notifications in settings.
Q: Why can't I hear any sound?
A: There are different streams (System, Notification, Media). Some phones disable System, the stream usually reserved for button clicks. If you have one of those phones, you'll have to change the stream in Options.
Q: This isn't a launcher! Why claim it is?
A: It is... Sort of. It launches apps. It is not meant to replace your default launcher, though.
I have stopped development for Overlay Launcher.
Try the successor app, "Smart Task Launcher"
This is fastest function(Apps, Shortcut, open/close Notification, etc.) launcher.
You can do most operations by moving your thumb slightly.

!NEW! moved swipe functions to new free app 'CircleLauncher Swipe'
You can add some frequently used apps, contacts or bookmarks to this launcher and start those apps, contacts or bookmarks with one click from a circle. Use the included launcher icons or use a icon from any CircleLauncher icon pack. If you slide over the icons, they are animated a little bit mac-like ... just try it!
Parallax FX [beta]: look behind the widget like on iOS7! This effect can be enabled in the settings: 'More Settings' > 'More ...' > 'Parallax FX' - the result is highly dependent on the sensor in your phone ... some are perfect, other will not work very well. Looks best with '3D Image Live Wallpaper' :-)
Some icons in the screenshots are from 'CircleLauncher IconPack One', 'Minimal UI', 'Glasklart Go Nova Apex Theme', 'Circles Theme', 'Motif' and 'Rain' - the clock is 'lockscreen watch'.
This is a free version of Circlelauncher with some limitations.
Please don't move the app to the sd card - it won't work!

Coming soon Multi select apps.
1. Another developer has compiled the latest launchers from Google - search for "Digital Cookies" in the play store.
2. Apex Launcher
Google's launcher from Android 4.1 Jellybean, available for you, good gentleperson, right here, right now. No ads. No catches.
WHY DO I HAVE TO CHOOSE THE WIDGETS TWICE?!
Unfortunately it has to be this way. Sorry. It is due to Google cheating slightly with widget security.
I previously said that it "will likely never be fixed by Google, 'cause it doesn't affect them". Well I guess I have to eat my words because in Android 4.1 they fixed it! If you run this app on Android 4.1 it won't ask you to pick your widgets twice. Whether you'll actually ever get Android 4.1 is a-whole-nother story.
Oh yeah, also please don't rate it low because it doesn't have many features. That is kind of the point - it has exactly the same features as in the stock app. If you want more, check out Apex Launcher. :-)
If you want ICS icons, install ICS apps! The launcher does not decide the icons.
No other launcher can compete with Lightning when it comes to customizability. Have a look at the full list of features and you will be convinced ;-)
And if an extreme customizability were not enough, Lightning is also very light on memory and a blazing fast launcher. It works like a charm on all phones and tablets, from Android 2.2 up to newest Android versions.
Under the hood, Lightning is propelled by a powerful and unique engine allowing you to arrange your apps and widgets using the best possible flexibility and style.
• It doesn't matter whether you want your icons to be nicely aligned on a grid, or pixel perfect positioned, or even scaled/ rotated/skewed in all directions: Lightning does it all with ease.
• It doesn't matter whether you need a single page, five, or half a million with different setups for work, private use and children: Lightning offers an unrivaled way to manage your precious screen estate.
• It doesn't matter whether your device is one of these beloved pioneer Android phones or if you run the latest and greatest flagship: Lightning doesn't waste CPU nor memory; the app strives to remain light and fast for everyone.
With its wide range of features, Lightning perfectly copes with all kind of home screens: classic, minimalist, gesture based, with side bars or moveable panels,... Lightning doesn't limit you to a particular scheme: it aims to free your creativity instead.
Key Features (not an exhaustive list):
• Highly customizable desktop: change font, size, color, wallpaper, grid lines, folder options, status/navigation bar colors, layouts, scrolling & zooming options, events, actions, gestures, pretty much everything.
• Unique limitless desktop: a desktop is a surface growing as needed, in all directions. Move an icon to the right or left and a new page will be automatically created. And it works for pages above and below too! This means as much space as needed for your apps, and also a much more efficient navigation.
• As many desktops as needed: one for private, work, party, kids, etc. Add, remove and re-arrange desktops at will, each desktop being an independent and unlimited setup.
• Combined grid and free positioning: use the grid to easily align apps, use free positioning to adjust the size, position and rotation of any item (including widgets).
• Pinned items: prevent any item from moving when scrolling your pages. This is handy to create docked elements anywhere on the screen, and more.
• And lots more: enhanced app drawer, panels, Tasker integration, Lock screen, etc. Please visit the developers homepage for detailed feature list, manual and how to’s.
Things to be aware of (please read this notice):
• With its wide set of options and switches, Lightning has a learning curve. But isn't that a small price to pay to get the most exciting and unique home screen ;-) Join the user community to get tips and tricks!
• Problem setting Lightning the default launcher on Jelly Bean? Please install this free app : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=name.kunes.android.launcher.loader
Lightning is in constant evolution thanks to a continuous and incredible user feedback (first release in August 2011). All comments, suggestions and bug reports are welcome. Please email your questions and bug reports to Pierre Hébert - firstname.lastname@example.org, or join the Lightning Launcher Community at https://plus.google.com/communities/111427002111904170930.

This app has support for 3D themes meaning that you can select another kind o style of compass, including other interesting objects such as the aiming cube or the XYZ arrows.

This compass app has no ad and does not require permission except LOCATION for the GPS feature. Enjoy !
Long tap on the compass will display the settings screen.
*** READ THIS PLEASE ***
accuracy depends on the hardware, please use a calibration tool designed for your device whenever the displayed direction seems wrong or not accurate.
Swipe your finger to shot the ball, use shortcuts to reach the hole faster, but be careful at traps and other hazards !

Please consider purchasing this add-on if you wish to support the free Marine Compass app.
Please note this app will not appear in the list of apps and cannot be launched: this plugin will provide additional features for Marine Compass. It can be selected through the settings screen of Marine Compass, under the 'Augmented reality' option.
This is a simple template using folders with a sliding animation. Each time you tap on a category icon at the bottom of the screen, the current folder slides from left to right, replacing the previous one if any.
A few icons are also placed on five pages: center, left, right, up and down (a cross), and a little home button in the upper right corner is used to switch between the normal view and the full scale view.
An experiment around multiple zoom levels. Each category links to a set of icons with a different zoom level, so that switching categories is done with some sort of zoom animation.
For use with Lightning Launcher v8.4 or v8.4b3 only
Please read the description as it contains important instructions on how to use this plugin.
* Place apps, widgets, shortcuts or folders on your screen.
* Move items as you like, resize them, scale them or rotate them. Any transformation is possible.
* Customize fonts, colors, size without limit.
* Configure folders as sliding bars, or scroll in all directions to reveal more space.
* And more: the full spectrum of Lightning Launcher options is available to create your very own lock screen.
This application is a plugin for Lightning Launcher (free: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.pierrox.lightning_launcher ). It cannot be used without Lightning Launcher and will not appear in the list of apps. As soon as the plugin is installed you can choose which Lightning desktop is to be displayed as the lock screen. Please note also that this plugin is built into Lightning Launcher eXtreme ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.pierrox.lightning_launcher_extreme ).
How to use the plugin:
- select a free desktop and configure it as you wish (add widgets, shortcuts, customize the wallpaper and so on)
- add an unlocker item, or configure a gesture to unlock the screen
- select this desktop as the lock screen (settings / general / lock screen)
Swipe over the unlocker and it will fade out, then unlock the device.
This unlocker is made with scripts and can be customized / tuned. Works only with LLX 10.5b5.
How to use: long tap on empty space to show the Lightning menu, select "Scripts -> Load a script -> Create a Fade Unlocker". This will ask you how big you want the unlocker and which image to use for its background, then create it in your current desktop.
How to use: long tap on empty space to show the Lightning menu, select "Scripts -> Load a script -> Create an analogic clock". This will ask you how big you want the clock to be, then create it in your current desktop.
Full source code for the Clock APK can be found at http://www.pierrox.net/cmsms/applications/lightning-launcher/scripting.html (scroll until the end of the page for download links)
But the most important thing here is that it will be possible to load scripts from APKs, hence extending your home screen with great features that were previously difficult to setup.
How to use: long tap on empty space to show the Lightning menu, select "Scripts -> Load a script -> Create a Sketchpad".
Full source code for the Sketch APK can be found at http://www.pierrox.net/cmsms/applications/lightning-launcher/scripting.html (scroll until the end of the page for download links)
No rocket science nor fine art and graphics in this game, just the fun of watching a character move in all directions, making random gestures or... following an elaborated choreography, you choose!
Each member can be animated separately, allowing for very unique dances! Advanced users can also configure precise sequences of moves with speed and count, in order to match the music for a perfect choreography.
Once you are happy with your dancer you can upload a video to Youtube or share the file with your friends.
This app is ad supported but if you feel it is worth to support apps developers then you can remove ads and unlock a set of supplementary moves through an in-app purchase.
Please watch the video for a short introduction, and then... Let's Dance!
This all in one app contains a piano, painting and drawing activities, a shadow matching game, a multitouch firework screen, and slideshows to learn words such as shapes, vehicles and colors. All activities are carefully designed to be used by babies (big and colorful buttons, sound/vibrate feedback, easy to understand).
Baby Games strive to be safe for kids:
• options for parents, such as locking and sounds, are protected through a password.
• Baby Games is a free app, without any ad (ads are not suitable for kids!).
If you wish to support this app, please consider purchasing the "Plus" version which also contains a night clock to help children who are too young to read an ordinary clock to understand when it's time to get up.
New activities and drawing are coming, stay tuned!
Feedback welcomed, thank you!
