Gravity Home (lite/free)
Gravity Home is a “fun” approach to home screen replacement that follows the laws of gravity. It offers smooth performance. Some of the customizable features include:
- Select custom app list to show in the live wallpaper
- Change app icons size
- Lock icons only in home screen (only affecting 1 desktop)
- Adjust Gravity
- Adjust friction
- Adjust elasticity
Its uniqueness is based on the laws of gravity. The icons for your apps follow the laws of gravity and depending on the phone’s orientation fall in that direction. I remember the old ‘follow the cursor’ sites; I did not like them and this falls into that same category. I found the gravity action cute for a few minutes, then distracting. Some folks are reporting high cpu usage with this app. I did not use it long enough to verify these claims.
I had no problems setting up Gravity Home and customizing it for my usage. I see it is as a ‘conversation starter’. Many folks like it and others may like this unique approach to a home screen replacement.
