If you were looking for a new experience on your Home Screen then "Hexy Launcher" may be for you. Hexy Launcher makes your home screen a canvas of hexagonal tiles which adapt to how you use your apps. If you are a heavy app user you know how frustrating it can be to chose only a few of your favorite apps for your home screen. Folders help with that by allowing you to group apps in categories, but require an extra click to open the folder prior to launching the app.
Even if you have chosen what you consider to be your top used apps for your home screen you may still find yourself opening up your app drawer to find and open the one or two apps you forgot you use all the time. Hexy Launcher adapts and adjusts to the way you use your phone. Hexy learns from how you use your device and predicts which apps you will likely need and places those on the home screen for you. All the apps are arranged in a hexagonal grid. There is a central hexagon that contains the apps Hexy learns are most relevant to you. You can filter apps in your grid with a serach, and you can add widgets and resize them as needed.
This app was developed during one of Swiftkey's innovation weeks and is being released in Swiftkey greenhouse. This is not officially supported, but seems to be stable enough to use as a daily driver. Head to the link below to give this innovative launcher a try!
