    It’s been teased since December and finally hit beta release earlier in the month. As promised by Teknision, the team behind the widget-heavy launcher, the Chameleon Launcher version 2 for smartphones is now ready for primetime.

    If you’re not too familiar with Chameleon, the launcher offers multiple home screens that can change throughout the day based on time ranges, GPS locations, or WiFi connections. Each screen will have its own widgets and apps, complete with folders. Compared to the tablet version, the smartphone-optimized Chameleon is quite limited in the sense that there’s less room to display the information. That’s why the app only works at least on 720p phones.

    Chameleon puts a lot of emphasis on widgets, but unfortunately, only a handful of them are available for now. The official list includes Calendar, Clock, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, RSS News Reader, Switches (WiFi, Bluetooth, brightness control, etc), Twitter, and YouTube. While you can place regular widgets on the screen, they might not look too pretty.

    The Chameleon launcher for smartphones is up for grabs for about $3 via Google Play. If you have an Android tablet or two at home, it’s better to get the smartphone+tablet combo for a dollar more.

      Wow…

      I don’t think it looks any good on phones due to lack of space. Things look cramped even on high DPI like I got on my Nexus 4.

      In fact this Launcher works best on devices with 2GB RAM, anything lower and it won’t be as smooth.

          Well, on my ASUS Infinity Tab it isn’t … On phones I dunno .. All I know is that it’s lightning fast on my Nexus 4 coz it has 2GB RAM …

          Maybe the more Widgets you add the slower it gets xD
