Tablet Specific Launcher
Hi, I am an independent android developer and I have been toying with the idea of writing a tablet specific launcher/home screen replacement. It will have some features from honeycomb's launcher, automatic rendering depending on the tablet screen size, resolution and density. I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in a launcher or do the current launchers suffice tablet use?
I own a Dell Streak and I've been using ADW launcher exclusively on it, as the stock one is just horrible in my opinion, even the new dell stage launcher. I was thinking of having something similar to current launchers but resizing options for shortcuts/widgets to render to the best sizes depending on the tablet specs. A quick rundown of the features I have in mind:
Horizontal/Vertical home screens (swipe up/down/left/right for screens)
Possible pinch to zoom to view more home screens at once
Scrollable widget support
Honeycomb like item placement (widgets, wallpaper, embeddable apps)
Pricing would be $2.99-$3.99 for the full version (for more advanced features such as pinch to zoom, scrollable widgets, some others).
Lite free version would include all normal features of a launcher (widgets, wallpaper, live wallpaper, etc) , the dynamic resizing as mentioned above, horizontal/vertical home screens.
Just an idea, wanted some feedback before I started development. Thanks.
