Gingerbread Launcher Available in the Market

On Monday we gave everyone the new Gingerbread keyboard and last night, Modaco gave everyone the new Gingerbread launcher.  This is the green highlighted, squared off version that looks like Froyo but with an extra “Manage apps” button in the homescreen menu.  You’ll also find a “Notifications” button and a super  fast app drawer.  It won’t change your notification bar though, but hey, you are still that much closer to Android 2.3 aren’t you?  

Available to everyone for free.

    Where can I find that wallpaper?

  • Im using it on my Droid X right now and I do like it I must say cant wait to get a rom version of the real thing, Im using a black Juice theme so I have a black notification bar and basically and nice black and green theme throughout that matches the launcher

    Where can i get the wallpaper?

    I don't get the attraction. There is a reason everyone skins the launcher and launcher apps exist. The vanilla one just sucks compared to Blur, LP, Sense, etc. IMO of course.

    Runs great on Droid Inc.

    installed on my DX but now I can't resize any of the widgets on my home screen.

    My Droid 1 tried to do an update as soon as I turned it on this morning from sleep mode. Accepted the update and of course BB5 stopped it from taking place. Suppose it will be the same thing over and over again. Wish we could just opt out of the upgrade all together.

  • The quick “manage apps” button is brilliant. It's easily the settings feature I use the most, so it would be really nice to have a quick menu option for that…but I don't want to stray from ADW. I hope Cyanogen includes this in their next set of nightlies/updates.

    The Gingerbread Launcher only has 5 screens by default. Any way to add 2 more screens for a total of 7?

    • you dont need 7, 5 is enough.

    The market says, “There are no matches in Android Market for the search: pname:com.modaco.android.lanuchergb”.

    I just searched for “Gingerbread Launcher” in the market and it is still there. 5MB is kind of piggy, though.

        Or look up I posted link to pngs

  • ehh i cant find it, i scanned the link, is it gone?

  • PAKmann2k

    Kellex, or anyone? Does gingerbread change the color of the notification bar? I assume not, but all the preview screenshots I have seen are from a Nexus, so they are all black. If this thing changes my bar to black, I will be happier than a pig….

    • PAKmann2k

      Before someone suggests it, I am rooted and I do use a black theme, just would be nice to see a stock black bar.

      • kellex

        New GB bar is black.

        • PAKmann2k

          You guys made my day. I am pretty easy to please.

    • RW-1

      Yes, in GB, it goes to black as stock.

    • it depends on what phone you have

  • Bob Teel

    Does any of this work on the Galaxy S??

    • i cant see it in the market on my fascinate

  • Possomcrast1

    oh btw i got the update for my droid x but it wont install for some reason

  • I think it's kinda funny how a hand-full of spare-time dev's are really thinking and developing outside the box … then we've got the full time pro's who bring us more of the same, time and again. Bring the 2.3 platform so the devs can play.

  • FortitudineVincimus

    Ill stick with LP

    • Adecker246


  • how about someone post the dock.png and icons.png so i can just add to launcherpro.

  • Does this work for Moto Blur or more specifically Droid X?
