Ice Cream Sandwich Launcher, or ICS for short, is based off Google’s latest update, Android 4.0. It does its best to clone the UI and features of the official update while still being useable on many older devices. This launcher is as close as you can get to having ICS on your phone with out officially having it. New features such as “Garden Crosshairs” for dragging items on the home screen are already in the launcher and work great. Includes many ICS 4.0 icons, dialogs and themes to get the full experience.
Honeycomb Launcher, also known as HCL, is a home replacement that allows any Android 2.1+ device to have a taste of Google’s update, Android 3.2. Honeycomb Launcher clones the UI features of this update as best as possible, while still allowing older devices to run it. Much of what you see in the official update, you will find in the launcher. Such as menus, icons, and wallpapers.
