Chameleon

This week, we dig into Android’s latest launcher, Chameleon, along with this week’s special guest Phill, from their development team.  Screen real estate, widgets, and home screens... based on a context system make Chameleon extremely powerful. Chameleon, now in private beta, will soon be launching an SDK system to allow developers from all walks of life to create additional widgets...

Chameleon

The Chameleon Launcher has truly been one of the most successful Kickstarter projects of late, and not only did it manage to get its financial backing really fast,... but it has also become reality blazingly quick.

As promised, the custom user interface for Android tablets has been made available in Google Play in “early August”, though the app is still n...

Google is continuing its series of videos about the Nexus 7 on YouTube, to get people more interested in it and see how it works. The latest ones are the Google Apps video, and now the Google... Play video.

While I wish Google promoted even more heavily the Nexus 7 and the Nexus experience in general on TV, to get the mainstream interested in Google’s stock Android experience, rel...

While not all Kickstarter projects have their happy ending, we should give some props to the developers of Chameleon for keeping users abreast on the latest of their awesome Android launcher.... The team has also done a commendable job in meeting the targeted release date of the app. To return the goodwill of early backers and supporters, those who have pledged their support will get to test o...

But things are certainly looking up, as they have successfully garnered enough pledges on day one of the re-listing.

The developers haven’t been resting on their laurels, as work on...

When Bogdan first introduced the revolutionary Chameleon launcher back in March, the developers (Teknision) were undergoing negotiations with several Android manufacturers for integrating their unique... homescreen in future Android tablets.

Fast forward a couple of months, and Adrian reported that these negations have failed and that Teknision decided to turn Chameleon into a Kickstarter campaign...

We’ve reported about the Chameleon project a couple of times before at Android Authority. Developed by Teknision, a Canadian user experience design house in Ottawa, Chameleon is an Android... tablet user interface with a twist. Just like its color-changing namesake, Teknision’s UI changes its appearance to adapt to the user that happens to be using the tablet at the moment.

Chameleon

Those of you who’ve been watching our website for more than a little while might remember an article from a couple of months back talking about Chameleon. More than just an UX overlay, Teknision’s... project looked like something that could really revolutionize the way we interact with our Android-based tablets, making Google’s OS a more personal and “alive” experience.

For most manufacturers, the home screen is the most important part of the Android interface. Why? Because, on the home screen, they can easily apply their own branding and style, and, in theory,... differentiate their devices from the sea of competing Android products. The need for differentiation is understandable, but unfortunately, for end users, overlays like TouchWiz, Sense, or Motoblur are jus...
