Landscape mode is available but no changes are made to that view. v3.0 - 16/12/11: Smaller horizontal margin versions added v2.0 - 11/12/11: No landscape version added v2.0 - 11/12/11: 3 home screen version added v2.0 - 11/12/11: Vertical workspace margins fixed v1.0 - 10/12/11: Initial release Features: Google search bar removed from home screen Search still works as expected Choose 3, 4 or 5 home screens! Great with Paul's search button mod available here 4x5 grid enabled in portrait mode to reclaim the search bar space Vertical grid height reduced slightly to accommodate 5 rows Landscape remains 4x4 (4x5 doesn't fit without scaling) so bottom row is chopped off (gracefully) Version 2 Screenshots: Version 3 (Smaller Left/Right Margin) Screenshots: Installation: Works on most ICS roms (you may experience problems with smaller resolution screens) Install an alternative launcher first so you have options if this does not work!

I thought I might as well share my personal version of this launcher mod. This version: Launcher2CrazyModv3.apk has only one portrait home screen (#0) and two landscape home screens (#0 and #1). It might seem a bit odd but it's the way I like it... . Either push to /system/app/ or replace Launcher2.apk in the above .zip with this file after renaming it.Note #1 I quite like the landscape behavior of my mod and do not intend to make many changes to it like a bigger grid, please don't be disappointed if that's what you were looking for.Alternatives My mod is just a manipulation of the stock launcher, nothing more, nothing less. For those of you looking for an alternative ICS launcher based on the stock one but with more options check out one of the projects below. Both of these have scope and reach well beyond my mod and I have no intention of matching their features. Trebuchet (cool name for a launcher!) Being developed by nebkat for CM9. You can get a copy of that launcher from here. Nova Launcher Being deleloped by the creator of the awesome WidgetLocker is another alternative based on the stock ICS launcher and that's available from here.
