Technical discussion of Android development and hacking. No noobs please. Device-specific releases should go under appropriate device forum.

[IDEA] Grid Launcher


Maybe some of you watched the announcement of Grid from Fusion Garage, and saw the Grid Launcher. It's basically an endless grid where you put your apps, managed into groups. Here's an demo of the homescreen  It's one of the only things I liked about the Grid OS, and I think I'm not the only one liking it.   So I tought, why don't we port this to Android. I'm a developer, but I don't think I've got enough time/experience to do this myself. So what about creating an (open source) project and port the Grid Launcher to Android phones and tablets?  What do you think of it?  		

                			Did some digging because I thought it looked pretty cool and found this:  Sounds like it's just another face of Android really. We'll see when they release a product and someone tears into it.  		

                			Wow !! Very very nice !  I want a Launcher like that   		

                			Looks good, would like it on a tablet size PC, not sure how it could go on a normal sized phone though.  		

                			Agreed.  I'll be happy to put what dev resources I have towards a port for SGS I based phones & the GTab 10.1.  		

                			Seems too good, I'ld really like to help in a port, I think we should wait sometime for them to release the source, or perhaps its already released maybe  		

                			pretty neat. I remember something like this for Windows Mobile (not a desktop though... but an overlap app).  		

                			How about we create 9 grid desktop as per follow with the 5th as the center?  1 2 3  4 5 6  7 8 9  		

                			Since I've heard that the GridOS allows Android phone apps, I'm suspecting that it's gonna be possible for Gingerbread and below. Not sure if it can be implemented for Honeycomb, though. Hopefully yes.   Sent from my GT-P1000 using Tapatalk  		

                			Is there something new ? Or a similar launcher ?
