Oh, Chameleon launcher. There has been no shortage of you on Android Police. Yet here you are once again, resting comfortably in our spotlight.

I know, I know – many of you are tired of hearing about Chameleon. But this time it's different. Very different. You see, Teknision – the dev team behind Chameleon – is finally showing off the illusive phone launcher. A few weeks ago, they called out to the community for some alpha testers – 25 to be exact. They had filled all those slots in a matter of minutes it seems, proving that you – and so many others – really want to see what Chameleon can do on a phone. Well, here it is:

Yeah, yeah, the phone bit is at the end. I know that. You also got a sneak peak of what they're doing with folders and apps – consider that a bonus.

There's no word when the public beta of Chameleon for phones will hit the scene, but as always, we'll keep you posted. Until then, you can just watch that video over and over, imagining what it must be like to touch it with your very own hands.

    what i would do to get into that privet beta.. launcher looks sweet

    • Chris Bozsik

      If you would have read the first paragraph in the article you would have seen that they only wanted 25 people, which they got within minutes. Thus what can you do? Nothing. You aren't getting in.

        Dude, like, relax man.

        If you look at the first paragraph they only had 25 in the private ALPHA. No mention as to the private beta.

    I love the progress they are making on this launcher. Yes I love and yes I think it needs work to be my daily, I've been with them since Kickstarter and they have come a lonnngg way and its nice to see a Kickstarter see the light of day and then some.

  • Crankcaller

    I don't get it. I got it on kick starter as well as it looked great. Have played with it, un-install, go back to it..
    On my nexus7 (last time I checked) pressing the back button takes you back to the default launcher. Surely this shouldn't happen? That doesn't happen with other launchers. Am I being daft? I'm prepared for public humiliation here if I'm being thick. :-D Answers on a postcard...

    Seriously? YOu give all this attention to Chameleon - and nothing about TSF launcher? Have you seen what it can do in the most current updates? THAT'S innovation

    • Jon Garrett

      enlighten us cause I never heard of TSF launcher.

      • smeddy

        It's magic. Place widgets anywhere (no more grids), have swinging picture pendants, the smoothest launcher I have EVER tried (I don't know how but it is), flying blimps on screen. Lasso apps to create folders, etc etc. Slightly steep learning curve but give it a go if you can. It's in the Play Store

        • Jon Garrett

          cant even find it in the Play Store., all I see are plugin's and such. anyway, I use Nova which rocks.

  • Jose

    I don't get it, why do they have Nova Launcher installed?
