Looks like Christmas come…a couple days late. There is an alpha version of CM9‘s new Ice Cream Sandwich Launcher, “Trebuchet”, available for you to download onto your ICS ROM. Looks like a developer by the name nebkatÂ has created a thread over at XDA to download the APK file.Â Now just remember this is an alpha version of the launcher, so it is not going to be up to par quite yet. Many of us were wondering what is going to be so different between this launcher and the stock launcher, so now we get a sneak peek of what is to come.
- Custom number of Homescreens â˜‘
- Enable/Disable Persistent Search Bar â˜‘
- Separated Apps/Widgets in Drawer â˜‘
- Resize Any Widget â˜‘
- Show and Fade Scrolling Indicator in Homescreen and Drawer â˜‘
- Enable/Disable Auto-Rotate â˜‘
- Drawer Apps Sorting (Title, Install Date) â˜‘
- Infinite Scrolling
- Dock (Custom pages and size)
- Transition Effects (Homescreen and Drawer)
- Backup and Restore
I, like a lot of you, have tried outÂ Nova LauncherÂ for my ICS ROM and that launcher definitely improves the stock ICS launcher, so I am curious on what the boys of CyanogenMod have done here. Give it a shot. Let us know what you guys think of it.
