[App] Holo Launcher brings a tasty Ice Cream Sandwich to the Gingerbread Masses
Still stuck on Gingerbread and sick of having to hear everyone talk about how sexy Ice Cream Sandwich is? Well, I may not be a miracle worker with a magical Android 4.0 RUU file for every device on the planet, but I did just stumble upon something that you may thank me for over in the Android Apps and Games section over at the XDA Forums.
Feast your eyes on Holo Launcher, an awesome homescreen replacement application that will get you about as close to ICS as you’ll ever get without an official update or a custom ROM based on the latest OS. We also know that Ice Cream Sandwich has only made its way to about 5% of all Android devices, so we’re betting there’s a lot of you out there who will love this one.
Holo Launcher comes to us thanks to XDA Junior Member, mobint. It’s free to try, but please make sure to leave thanks if you download and enjoy his work. Check out the features below:
