    Custom OUYA Launcher

    CAUTION! Not working properly since Abominable Snowman; read more here:

    As the title says, this is a launcher replacement app for the OUYA, wich was initially inspired in the one shown in the kickstarter video.


    Currently the launcher features:
    • Ability to stay on top of default launcher, option to go back to it if needed.
    • Auto self-updater.
    • Auto dim/turn off.
    • Customizable wallpaper (only PNG, 1.777 aspect preferred).
    • Custom flower keyboard (ala Steam Daisywheel)
    • Differentiation between games, apps and others (sideloaded/system).
    • Download/Install/remove games.
    • Full integrated store, much more organized.
    • Multilanguage (English, Esperanto, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish)
    • No root required.
    • Social features (friends, chat, recommendations)
    • Turn off console (sleep), and controllers.
    • Three text themes; light, dark and mix.

    Stuff that may come: brainstorm!!
    • Favorites / Pinned
    • Updater for installed app (currently loking fo a way to do this without root)
    • Remote control/management (install apps from, say your phone or tablet or PC to the OUYA?)
    • Wifi management form within the app :?

    If you want to see the launcher translated to your launguage add me on G+
    Here is the oficial doc for the translations:

    Known issues:
    - When browsing the store for too long, lots of tiles are in memory for faster caching. This causes the system to (sometimes) run out of memory and close the launcher, seen as a crash with no warning, usually followed by the execution of the last opened app or the launcher being reset.
    - Solution #1: Delete all tiles from chache after leaving the store section.
    - Solution #2: Reduce tiles size to the bare minimum, so less memory is used.
    - ..?
