Chameleon Launcher has a presence at CES this year, and the company is showing off a number of upcoming features for tablet users, as well as previewing the long-awaited phone version. The alpha is currently being tested by a small group of people, and Chameleon promises a beta version soon for it Kickstarter backers, the ones that paid $10 for the chance to try something new all those months ago.

The new tablet version promises folder support, a long-awaited feature that has prevented me from using the launcher full-time on my Nexus 10. Even more impressive, the phone version, which is shown running on a Galaxy Note II and a Nexus 4, looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it on my device.

    That is nice. I like that a lot. Wish I knew about this stuff so I could get on the kickstarter project.

      you can buy the app in the app store, but you have to be on a tablet to do so. you can however side load the app on to your phone, but I do suggest still buying the app to support the work they are doing.

    if you sideload the launcher it works on a phone… had it running smoothly on my galaxy s3. I was running aokp however, so not sure if that made the difference. I did not change my dpi

      So are you using the app without paying for it? and people wonder why developers don’t rush to get their app on android first.

      But that launcher looks really nice and polished. The developers did a great job.

    Typical Android nonsense. Baaaaaa

    Making useless software like launchers … just for the sake of making launchers. It’s as useless as bloggers who blog about nothing … just for the sake of blogging.

      You actually think I’m an Apple fan? Hahaha. I prefer Apple over Android any day, but I’m not an Apple fan.

    I have it on my tablet and try it out every few weeks, but I can’t get into it. I love the idea in concept, but using it just isn’t ideal for some reason
