Chameleon Launcher coming to phones, beta testers wanted

Towards the end of Chameleon Launcher’s Kickstarter campaign, Teknision, the Ottawa-based company behindthe Android app, announced that it would eventually be bringing the software to phones.

While it made sense to introduce the widget-focused custom launcher on tablets — there is far more screen room to work with, after all — the market for said devices is much smaller than for phones. Launchers like Nova, Apex, Go and others are often at the top of the Paid Apps category, so it makes sense that Chameleon would try to cash in on the trend.

The company is looking for 25 “early adopters,” those used to alpha and beta testing various apps, on a number of devices including the Galaxy Note II and Nexus 4, to try out an early version of the software.

If you’re so inclined, head to Chameleon’s forum and send them an email. And if you’re in the market for the tablet version, which we HIGHLY recommend, it is on sale for $3.99, down from the regular $9.99 price. Get on it, Android nation.

    Does it support native widgets yet?

    They should focus on fixing the bugs on the tablet version first before focusing on the phone version. It’s a great launcher with lots of potential but it crashes a fair bit on my Nexus tablet.

    I ran this on my Nexus 7 for a while but apart from some neat looking design, I wasn’t happy with it.
    Doesn’t support widgets and the refresh took way too long (it refreshes info every time you turn on your device).
    Luckily, I didn’t pay 10 bucks for it, I had other sources 😉
