Do you want to enjoy 3D panels and 3D animated widgets? Transform your Android homescreen into 3D with theÂ SPB Shell 3DÂ launcher on your Android device. This app features 3D panels and amazing 3D animated widgets on your Android homescreen.
Unlike the usual launcher that separates each section of the home screen into pages, this launcher lets you insert panels on your Android homescreen. Each panel has its own specific function. For instance, the weather panel lets you see the weather for the day. You can quickly view your agenda and schedules with the Calendar panel. You won\’t miss a birthday when you\’re looking at the birthday widget on the People panel. You can also add additional panels for images, contacts, time, market, and much more.
Panels are not the only cool addition in this launcher. The launcher also lets you view and scroll between panels in 3D by tapping the middle button on the dock bar.

With all those rich 3D animations, you will have to give up an amount of about US$15.00 before you can use the launcher. But, with all those smooth 3D animations and display, I could say that this launcher is definitely worth paying for.
Just like the SPB Shell 3D launcher, theÂ Regina 3D LauncherÂ also separates the sections on your homescreen into workspaces. But, instead of getting pre-filled workspaces, you have to customize and fill them yourself. Aside from separating each workspace, you can also give it a unique name. You can create a dedicated workspace for game apps or a page for your appointments. You can also make individual workspaces unique by attaching a different background to each workspace. You can have a variety of backgrounds on your homescreen with the Regina 3D Launcher.
The Regina 3D Launcher also allows you to scroll between your workspaces in 3D view. You will also see the reflections of each panel as you scroll through different panels in 3D. The app drawer\’s screen tilts when you scroll between pages on your app drawer. In the app drawer\’s background, you can see your workspaces with their reflections. You can enable or disable these features from the settings menu to maximize the performance of your Android device.
The Regina 3D Launcher can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. The free version lets you enjoy all the features mentioned above, but you will be able to create up to five folders only. You will need to download the premium version of this launcher to create more folders.

Just tap and drag from the right side of the screen and you can access your favorite apps, transition settings, widgets, and much more.

With all those features, 3D effects, and endless possibilities of customizing your homescreen, this launcher is definitely worth the price.
TheÂ MXHome LauncherÂ is a simple launcher that features 3D animations. This launcher is just like any ordinary launcher, consisting of a dock bar at the bottom and few pages on the homescreen. What you do not know is that this launcher also has a few tricks that will surely surprise you. Just tap the middle button on the dock bar and unleash its amazing 3D effects.
Once that button is pressed, it will activate the 3D animations on the launcher\’s homescreen. You will find a flying balloon that will serve as a battery indicator. You will also notice falling leaves on the homescreen or when you touch the screen. The falling objects will also change when you re-activate the 3D animation button. You will find falling sakura petals, a yellow flower, or swaying dandelions. If those aren\’t enough, you can also find a flying airplane that will pass by, drawing a heart or a smiley face on your Android homescreen.
The launcher lets you change your app icon to the launcher\’s default icon theme. You will find your app icons, such as that for your browser, turned into an egg. You will also have a new look and a fully organized app drawer.
The MXHome Theme can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. There are also a number of compatible themes with 3D animations from the Google Play Store that you can try out with this launcher.
Most Android launchers, if not all, consist of pages where you can place widgets or app shortcuts. You can also access all your apps from the app drawer. TheÂ Claystone LauncherÂ goes beyond this common design and introduces a new and interactive 3D display on your Android homescreen. Instead of separating the homescreen into pages and placing your apps on the app drawer, the Claystone Launcher combines these all into one and places them inside a 3D interactive interface.
Using this launcher, you won\’t need to go to your app drawer, or place a widget to read the latest news, or check for updates from your Facebook account. All the things that you want are found on your 3D homescreen. You can open an app, read the latest news, check hot app offers, check your Facebook account, send a message to your contacts, and much more right on your homescreen. All you need to do is swipe up and down to jump through different sections on your homescreen and swipe left and right to view its content just as if you were flipping a book. You can also customize the contents on the launcher such as adding a section about business news or about health.
What\’s more is that this launcher can be enjoyed absolutely free from the Google Play Store. The launcher worked perfectly and ran smoothly on our test device.
