"Car Home"-like launcher menu for your own app

Postby kaktus621 » Wed Mar 16, 2011 6:01 pm


Although I'm pretty new into Android development, I think I've just made a class that is worth sharing as others might want to use it, too.

What I've done is creating a very simple interface that almost looks like Google's "Car Home" app. You have 6 large buttons that you can alter with your own texts and icons. To use the class, the only thing you have to do is extend your own activity from it and override two or three basic methods. It is also possible to change the text/icon on runtime which might come in handy.

A video on youtube demonstrates the basic behaviour of the class that I've made. Instructions on how to use it are in the attached zip file or on my blog (see signature).

As this is one of the first things I've made for the Android platform, I would really appreciate if you'd take a look at it and tell me your opinions. Thank you!

These car leased organizations are efficient and also provide driver. One of the benefits about this assistance is that the automobiles provided by these organizations are state-of-the-art and managed incredibly well by them.
