      When is the release Date?

      ^^Fair enough, that's a valid concern. Hopefully the devs will address it, since several people now have voiced concern. I'll have to go back and look at the features list again, but which parts of this UI are drastically different than the stock UI? I can achieve a somewhat similar layout, using Nova Launcher and Wizz Widgets on my A500, so I'm not 100% sure how massive the difference needs to be, to eliminate native widget functionality.

      @Jay, In the Android Central video they mention that the implementation technology is HTML5. That is not capable of hosting Android widgets. If they continue the current route they will not support the existing widgets + the new ones will feel wrong. We will also be fully dependent on them to implement widgets for the things we want to use instead of getting the widgets from the app developers. I think this is pretty close to deal breaker to me at least if they do not talk about the issue or future plans.

      @Jay: "how many home replacements have any of us used that don't support native Andoid features?"

      Not many, but there are some, and especially those who look (and work) very different from the original android home. Which is the case here. So I really wish this point was addressed by the developers (e.g. by updating the project home FAQ) rather than making assumptions about it.

    5. Eric Licciardello on

      When you said you'd be changing how you access available widgets, I hope you meant completely getting rid of the non-standard (on newer devices) menu button.

      Guys, I don't think we have anything to worry about when it comes to using standard Android widgets. Really, how many home replacements have any of us used that don't support native Andoid features?

      On a positive note, this video was a really nice sneak peak. I agree with a previous poster, that the double-tap to delete looks cool, but some people may have issues with accidentally deleting things. Including the ability to toggle between double-tap and standard deletion methods would be nice.

      I would love to see a sneak peak at how the UI can be set up to change by location or time. As someone who works in finance, and has a long train ride each morning, I was immediately hooked on that particular function. The ability to transition seamlessly from my "morning commute mode" (news, sports, social networking, etc.) to "work mode" (financial market news, stock tickers, Go to Meeting, etc.) would be absolutely amazing, and I'd love to see it in action.

      Keep up the great work, and hopefully we can scratch up the remaining funds!

      9.5K Untill we have Chameleon!!!

    8. JHS_NL on

      Very nice! Looking forward to the app. Is it possible to show lists in the twitter app? So each widget could have a different lis?

    9. Emanuele Ricci on

      Really interested about an API to interact with you to add our app widget :)

    10. s427 on

      One important point remains unclear to me: will we be able to add any android widget to a chameleon dashboard, or will we be limited to widgets specifically designed for chameleon?

    11. the_EDJ on

      Very sweet.

      A.) I noticed that a simple double tap wiped out the twitter widget. For those of us with twitchy fingers, would it be able to maybe gray out the widget and show an 'X' button to wipe it, along with a 'Cancel' button to save us from doing something we didn't want?
      B.) I know it will be very limited in its initial release as far as supporting multiple types of tablets' specialties. But Sony's S1 remote integration would be epic. :D

      Keep up the good work, I'll keep sharing trying to boost interest in whatever followers I have in my social circles. ;)

      Will you be releasing an API so I can make my own widgets?

    13. Thomas A Kowalczyk on

      Really hope this gets funded, this is excellence . I FUNDED AND I HOPE I HELPED.

    14. Konrad Steyn on

      This may just be the coolest thing since sliced bread!

    15. David Prnich on

      This is exactly what makes a tablet 'smart'. I think this is the path where more Android software should head - customisability and freedom of control at user level.

      Intelligent stuff. Well done!

    16. Ross Williams on

      Wow, this is awesome, can't wait to get it on my Transformer Prime!

      That is pretty awesome I must say I cannot wait.

      Nicely Done, but I agree you need a Google +1 Button.

    20. Pedro Gelabert on

      Awesome! Beautifully easy and very functional.

    21. Sean Oleson on

      Evan, make them small enough to move, then rearrange. Don't need to be a developer to get it. Its pinching a screen, not a ton of effort needed.

    22. Dat Nguyen on

      Where do I G+ +1?

      Chris Heinz on

      ^^^ Second that

    24. Evan Passero on

      I understand this was a quick demo, but it seemed like if I wanted to move a widget from one side of the screen to the other I would have to always have open space on the screen. What if I have a screen laid out with a few widgets and just want to rearrange them? Will Chameleon be able to do any sort of "smart reflow" of widgets (iOS icons is the first parallel that comes to mind)?

      Brandon Vaughn on

      This can handle multiple twitter accounts? God, this looks like such an amazing project. Will it be able to have more than one homescreen at once, like most Android homescreens do currently?

    26. Julian Davenport on

      Juhani and Laurent have a good point, I hope we can mix and match with existing android widgets.

    27. Hunter Stephenson on

      I am truly excited about the development of this new platform and skin. I think we could use an alternative every now and then to the basic android. Unlike most android skins, this keeps it simple and easy from what I've seen! Keep up the good work!

      Laurent Debacker on

      I agree with Juhani, we should be able to reuse existing android widgets too.

      Looking Awesome!

      I offer myself for future spanish translation!

    30. 6th Extinction Games on

      i'm very worried about your technology choice. Android already has a fully functional remote view framework and app widget hosts (home screens). A lot of people have already built their app widgets that could be utilised but due to tech choice all of those go out of the window. On top of that HTML5 does not provide a good Android user experience. All, and I mean every single one, of Phonegap and Titanium apps are very, very bad due to the non-native feel. What's your take on this?

      Looks awesome so far. I really hope you'll be able to scale so works with 1024x768, 1024x600 etc too.

      This looks very nice and slick, I am glad I saw your App in "All about android" on and now I am part of the cool process that is in development. I would love to try out a beta version

      Just an (ugly) thought: Much of the configuration process illustrated is similar to Motorola's interface for the Droid Razr. With all the patent nastiness going around, it might be worth a look to see if this is a protected technology. Still, my Motorola Xoom does not function this way, though I wish it did.
