    Holo Launcher

    There is a new launcher out that just came out of beta called Holo Launcher. It is based on ICS but it is designed for phones running 2.2+. I have been using it and it is now my daily driver. It has some very nice features including custom icons, gesture support, and a scrollable dock. It does a very nice job of cloning ICS.

    Check out the app thread.

    ... Just installed it and widget locker to complete the ICS look and get to my camera app faster. Every since I got my refurb unit it seems all the typical launchers I've used in the past (GO, ADW, Launcher Pro) make the phone get warm and the battery start going down almost as I watch it. I'll see how this one does for me.

    Thanks. I'll give it a try. Like getting a small bite of Ice Cream Sandwich.

    I've been running it for two whole days and half of today so far and I like it, no difference in battery performance on my phone.

    Part of your heat and battery issues might be from this latest update to 4.5.141. I know I have had issues as well. You might try this battery app to see how your apps are affecting your battery.

    Scrolling speed has been increased with the latest update to Holo. One thing I love about this app is that the Dev is very attentive to updates.

    So far I really like this launcher. It's like running CM9 without the minor bugs.

    CM9 has some glitches mostly because there's no Atrix ICS drivers available yet. Gingerbread ROMs are much more stable.
