How to enable Google Nexus 7 stock launcher in landscape mode? I use to browse website in landscape mode. But it does not stay in that mode after pressed Home button back to Nexus 7 stock launcher. I need to rotate Nexus 7 myself. This is not user friendly at all. Luckily, I found a solution to this downside. Google Nexus 7 stock launcher works in both portrait and landscape mode without the need of root access.
Here is another powerful, fast, and highly customizable home replacement for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich free to download ~ Apex Launcher. It is a nice ICS Launcher to replace default Samsung TW Launcher in Android 4.0.3 ICS Samsung Galaxy S II for you and me. Just like Nova Launcher, root access is needed only when you want to add widgets from the drawer. Apex Launcher needs to be installed as a system app which requires root access. All other Apex Launcher features are fully functional without root access.
Want a highly customizable, performance driven, home screen replacement for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich? You can try Nova Launcher for free then. It is another nice ICS Launcher to replace default Samsung TW Launcher in Android 4.0.3 ICS Samsung Galaxy S II. And it is better than Trebuchet CM9 Launcher because root access is needed only when you want to use Widgets-in-drawer. All other Nova Launcher features and functions are workable without root access.
After I installed official Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich Firmware for Samsung Galaxy S II, I am not so satisfied with default Samsung TW Launcher. It looks the same as Gingerbread. Kinda boring… So I give Trebuchet CM9 Launcher a try. It is official CM9 Launcher on CM9 ICS ROM. So it will give the look like official Android ICS AOSP ROM on Samsung Galaxy Nexus. But it can be used in Android 4.0 ICS Samsung Galaxy S2 too once you rooted it.
