Android is open for customizing, and that’s one of its most famous features. Android Market offers tons of widgets, skins, and launcher replacements that have one goal — to give a new look to your Android-powered device. Now Samsung is introducing its own launcher replacement called Pure Breeze, which is developed by San Jose Mobile Lab.
Pure Breeze is made to ease the navigation between apps, offering all the necessary tools for it. The Pure Breeze’s homescreen offers a very long page to scroll down. This can be strange for the first time usage as you will have to resist the temptation to swipe left and right.
When an app is open you can use the Home button to exit, but you don’t close the app by that, you just go back to the transparent homescreen that covers the screen leaving the app partially visible. Press the Back key and you’ll appear where you have been before.
However, this is the first attempt of San Jose Mobile Lab to create such a thing, and there are several issues — the translucent homescreen can be awfully distracting when you try to find an app you placed on The Kite (Pure Breeze’s homescreen equivalent). It offers only one homescreen page. The Menu button, when pressed on the homescreen, brings up the Pure Breeze settings instead of the device menu.
Both free and paid versions of Pure Breeze are available from Android Market.
