Default TSF Beta Launcher

Hi guys ,
so if you haven't heard, a company called TSF ( the special forces) designed an all new launcher , showcased on the wonderful Desire HD . Recently , just 5 days into the bat testing they dropped out .

just wondering if we'll ever see the likes of this launcher ever again ???
also heard that some of this will be incoporated in the MIUI ICS Rom ?

Android3D UI - TSF Shell Pro 1st edition demo - YouTube

After 5 days of the application for the TSF closed BETA, we have unexpectedly received excessive numbers of applicants. In order to guarantee a better experience for the closed BETA users, we decided to cease the application on Dec. 14. Sorry for the inconvienience and thank you, again, for the support.

I think that's just a blip in translation and it means the beta application process has finished.

I hope so as I plan on dropping LauncherPro as soon as its released. Just hope that those icon borders can be changed. Some of it comes across a bit too cutesy though for my taste, needs option to customise stuff like that and its perfect.

Since the TSF launcher has been well known even before it's beta my guess would be that people will almost definitely make themes for it if they can. So that shouldn't be a problem

Doesn't support gif wallpapers, and I couldn't customize the icons. Disappointed.

This is true.

The fluidity and speed of it was impressive though. Has potential. Just needs to be as customisable as go launcher for me to change. I'd pay the tenner then.

personally i'd want LG or ZTE or Huawei and offer it with their phones with an option to flip between this and stock ICS. would be a great differentiating factor when the hardware race is pretty much neck and neck so far...but blimey...11 is a lil hard to swallow...for a dev with no proper history of support, its a bit of a risk. they should have priced it at around the 3/$5 mark

Just a heads up, I know this app is expensive, so rather than acquire it via illicit means, do some research before you go for it and do it legally.

It would be good if they could offer a free trial for a few days a la tasker, so you can make a decision to see if its worth spending that much money on it

They did state that they will be updating a lot to add features and whatnot, they just wanted to release it since people became impatient .

It's not worth it now, but I'm sure it will be after a while.
