Android 4.4 Launcher Gets Extracted, Put Up for Download
We expected someone to rip various aspects of Android 4.4 and post on the web as downloadables, but we didn’t expect that to happen so fast. It appears that the new Home launcher from Android 4.4 has been posted online for download.
Android 4.4 KitKat was announced officially a bit over 12 hours ago, so it’s as fresh as they come. Right now it’s only available on the Nexus 5 and among the novelties it brings we’ve got a new and improved launcher. This one allows you to easily access Google Now and manage the homescreen with simple swipe gestures.
There’s also the option of using an unlimited number of homescreens and finally a brand new set of icons. Google has made the factory image and binary drivers for Nexus 5 available on its Nexus support page and then it was a piece of cake for devs to dissect it. The Android 4.4 launcher will work with any Android device that runs Jelly Bean.
