AAQR: Honeycomb Launcher

Android 3.0/3.1 Honeycomb launcher tries to do away with physical buttons by adding virtual buttons in the "command bar", and Honeycomb launcher tries to bring the look and feel of that Launcher to pre-Honeycomb Android.

Thus far, it has succeeded, for the most part, and the most you use it, the more you realize WHY did Google gave Honeycomb to tablets first: the interface is indeed optimized for tablets, with no icon labels, higher density grid in both desktop and app drawer, and a few other interesting tweaks.

The launcher is a pretty faithful representation of the buttons and such. It only LOOKS like Honeycomb, of course, but you can probably fake out some friends with it.

Rating: Worth a try, esp. since it's free
