Custom Launchers that work well on GPD XD
« on: September 02, 2015, 11:25:11 am »
The default launcher that comes with the GPD XD isn't great, so I've been trying some alternatives.

Right now I'm using Shafa Sofa Table Launcher, which is a nice alternative and has lots of themes.

FiredTV Launcher

THIS.  I have been using Smart Launcher Pro 3 on every Android device I have owned since it first released.  There is no equal.

But that's a launcher designed for Google TV, right?

I have no idea to be honest but its fully customisable colours backgrounds and sections ect...
I went for transparent so you could see the background you can even have different backgrounds per section or colours
super simple to use  ;)

P.S Read the discription on google play 8)

Here are my favorites:

HALauncher


SquareHome.Tablet Launcher


I've customized both with icons based on "Bichromatic Pads" wallpapers in rectroarch.
You can get those here.

I prefer HALauncher, but it can be janky when scrolling. I might give that SPMC skin a spin.

Says it's not compatible on the Play Store, but it installs through Aptoide. Have to manually create the '/sdcard/Hyperspin' directory, but even then it just launches to a black screen -- unless I'm missing something else?
