    ICS/JB apps for GB (no root)

    I am sure that alot of these are already out there, but I thought I would post a collection of apps in one place that will help your stock gingerbread phone feel like an ICS one. Post your favorites and I can add theme here.

    -Status Bar- Fully functional statusbar that will interact well with your stock status bar.
    Jelly Bean Status Bar (free)
    Omega Status Bar (Free) (Paid) with ics and jb themes

    -SMS- Nice popup with an ics theme.
    SMS Enhancer (free)
    (Paid)

    -Dialer-
    Exdialer(free)
    (Paid)

    -With ICS theme-
    ICS AC Carbon Theme

    -"App Carousel"
    App Carousel

    -Launcher- Many great launchers, but this one is straight ICS.
    Holo Launcher (free)
    (paid)

    -Theme/Icons
    ICS Theme

    -Lockscreen
    ICS
    Widgetlocker

    JB
    Hololocker

    My favorite launcher for making a GB phone look like ICS is: holo launcher.

    Updated with paid links to support the devs. Any other apps out there that people use to "ics" their phones?

    Would you say HoloLauncher compares to LauncherPro+?

    Tough question!

    I have not used LP enough to give you a detailed answer. I have used Holo a lot though, and can tell you what I like about it.

    Holo is nice, fast, and smooth. The smoothness has come a LONG way since it first started, and the dev does fairly frequent updates/tweeks. It is definitely very ICS detailed. It has the blue glow when you reach the end of the screens, and when you touch the icons or move icons/widgets you get that blue glow outline. It is the closest to ICS that you will get on GB imo. There are a lot of different customization features to it, and you can change it around to how you like it.

    Launcher Pro is a very nice launcher, and I would say it is probably the smoothest out there from what I have seen. I have tried the free version briefly, I have not tried+. There are others who are more experienced with LP. One thing that LP had that I like is that "buttery wobble"(only way I can describe it)when flipping through screens. It is also very nice customization features.

    I would say they are both very nice launchers. But then in the end it boils down to what you like, what do you prefer in a launcher. Each one has a very solid free version (the pro/+ versions just add features to my understanding), so you can test them out side by side and decide which one you like better before you purchase.

    Hope this helps!

    Sweet, thanks for the info. Yeah, I've been using LPP+ since day one. Just kind of stuck with it because it was very fast and smooth overall. It sounds like Holo may be just as smooth so I might try it out too! Thanks!
