Introduction

There are some wonderful themes available for your Android device, I know, I’ve looked at a lot of them for my editorial contributions to Android Magazine here in the UK. Surprisingly though, there are not that many 3D inspired themes. I’ve been using the 3D Regina theme on my Android device for a while now, but that’s just been replaced with MxHome Launcher and I am delighted with it.

 

Nitty Gritty

The beautiful time piece is not just eye candy, it’s fully functional allowing you to adjust your droid’s Settings, click onto Internet, look up Contacts or head over to Mail – it also tells the time! As well as that there’s also a battery life indicator, Wi-Fi switch, Bluetooth, opacity and sound and all can be adjusted directly on the cover screen, just by clicking on the desired icon. As you move your handset around the clock face appears to lift off the screen with the wonderful working 3D effect. Simultaneously all the cogs and hands move around changing the time as they go.

There are also some wonderful sound effects, including the coffee bean poping-out effect that you can create with a shake of your device. There’s also a 3D water bubble background sound effect too.

You can also set up your icons with the same theme and include the wonderful wallpaper that comes complete with MXHome Launcher too. There’s good spacing between icons and it’s very clear and a joy to use.

We tested this launcher on a HTC Sensation XE beatsaudio smartphone and it showed no noticeable lag and certainly did not hog any resources. Perhaps a future update to include a landscape mode and a little more customization allowing you to adjust the sizes of the icons would be good to see but these are very minor niggles.

We wholeheartedly recommend this theme, it’s a pleasure to use and with all those coffee beans we think you’ll get quite a buzz out of it too, give it a try.
