Every month a veritable boat load of apps are launched on Android. Some are huge releases while others aren’t and some are by some big name companies while others are independent coders. In any case,…
If you don't know about the Chameleon launcher for tablets, you should really check it out. Chameleon turns your tablet into a widget machine, with clean lines and a very sexy look. Until now, your tablet was the only thing that could be this cool, but we've found a YouTube video showing Chameleon on a smartphone!
Chameleon started as a Kickstarter project early last year, making over double its $30,000 goal. What could have been a new manufacturer skin quickly evolved into a solo project by Teknision, makers of Chameleon. We're glad it did, too, because it's just way too cool to be tied down to one manufacturer.
As good as it is, Chameleon also understands the nature of Android fans and how we like to tinker. The Chameleon API gives those of us with HTML skills the necessary tools to build our own widgets. Well, I shouldn't say “we”… more like “you”. I have no HTML skills, but making your own kick-ass widgets on Chameleon? Yes, please. The same launcher on all your devices? Even better.
Check out the video to see the potential of Chameleon on a smartphone. If your mind isn't blown, and your head doesn't explode clean off of your shoulders, check back with Android Authority for more Chameleon news as it develops!
