Project Syndroid

Project Syndroid Mission Control

Project Syndroid is a new project by SyndicateApps. Syndroid is basically future versions of Android that are not yet released. This may seem confusing at first. Here is how Android works. They will release a new update or a UI change about every 2-3 months. But we don't see major UI changes for almost a year or so. Such as major UI’s Froyo, Gingerbread, and Honeycomb. Every addicted Android user never can wait till the update. They are always looking for ways to het there hands on the latest leaks and roms. But as we know, we must wait for a few months. It may seem like along time but it is worth it unlike iOS.

But this is were Syndroid steps in. For all you Android Update Cravers out there, you will love Syndroid. Syndroid will be special builds of what we predict will be released in the future of Android. Our launchers and pre bundled apps will put our development and creativity skills into play to create UI’s that have yet to be designed and developed. Although we make our own versions of Android, we will still correct what is recently leaked so the launchers can match 1:1 in the UI.

What is Syndroid?

Honeycomb launcher is the closest you can get to Android 3.2 with out actually updating. Anything in the UI of 3.2 you can expect it to be in Honeycomb Launcher.

Honeycomb Dock Bar

Its all there. The launcher includes all soft-buttons, the honeycomb clock, and now it even included notifications.

Grid-Size 9x9

This launcher has a very large grid so you can place your icons and widgets almost anywhere.

Google Search Bar

Have you looked for the 3.2 search bar but had no results? Well, it is pre installed in the launcher and works flawlessly.

HCL - A perfect clone

Honeycomb launcher is one of the only launchers available which offers free pre-installed applications by Team Syndicate.

This apps will allow you to push your device even further into making it look like Android Honeycomb. Many of these useful pre-installs are actual tools for the launcher to help the user enjoy there new home.

Pre-installed Apps

Honeycomb Updater

Want to check for an update for HCL? Well, now you can. All you have to do is open the updater app and check for the latest build.

Honeycomb Wallpaper Chooser

You can now pick and choose any Honeycomb styled wallpaper you want from our new sleek wallpaper chooser.

Honeycomb Clocks

To add even more Honeycomb style to your device, we have pre-installed some Honeycomb clocks as widgets.

Need help?

If you ever find yourself lost in the launcher or having issues, now you can quickly find help from the launcher manual.

When Honeycomb Launcher was first released it had some major issues in functionality. I would want to Force Close on almost every device. But its our fault. HCL was the first big launcher we have ever built. So it was basically the testing grounds for what we can do. We have tried very much, failed and succeeded. But it was time...for a next big thing

A rebuild of HCL was successfully developed and published. It is know as V1.8.0.0. This new rebuilt launcher brought many more features and designs as well as support to a larger platform of devices. The launcher will not force close as much on non AOSP devices.

Honeycomb launcher is now even faster! During the rebuild we combined many files and layouts together to cut down on the data and app size. This was a huge success and is definitely noticeable in every day use of Honeycomb Launcher.

Brilliantly Rebuilt

One of the newest features added to Android is the running apps carousel. This special feature is like no other. It will show exactly what your device is running, just as the title states.

This can be very useful as it can be used to quickly access any running app on the device. It may also be used as a task manager. You can quickly view what CPU hog is running so you an quit the application or kill it. This will greatly save your daily use of battery.

Of course, we had to add the carousel to the launcher because it is on the official update, but we are not skilled enough to make it similar... at all. Our running apps carousel is currently hard coded so it will not display the true running apps. But hey, it sure looks cool!

Running Apps Carousel

Not only do you get the full UI clone in the launcher, but you also get the settings clone. This clone will make your settings menus look like Honeycomb’s settings.

Within the Android Settings, we have also included the launchers settings. This panel will give you all information about Honeycomb launcher and the ability to change the settings for the home screen. Such as hiding the icon labels, enabling screen bounce, and hiding the notification bar.

Custom Honeycomb Settings

From the settings panel you can choose “Launcher Settings” to change anything about the launcher.

Available Syndroid Versions

Below are currently available versions of Syndroid...

Syndroid 4.1 (JellyBean)

The word is that this update will bring missing features of Ice cream sandwich into play. It will supposedly bring “game changing stuff” according to many sources. This update is predicted to be right behind Ice cream sandwich so it will not have a high version number...
