    The Android tv interface is only for boxes running 5.0 and above. Im working on a mock up with similar feel to it at the moment, using Nova laucher as a base, as its so sleek and fast, and using Zooper Widgers Pro and photoshop to create the skins.

    I totally agree that the GUI should be adaptable to one's needs. Folders only if you need them. Otherwise just a grid that can be changed: tile size, color. The Windows Phone 8 start screen is an example how well designed and simple a start screen can be. The current MINIX start screen is ....ehhh.... a bit clumsy.

    Any news about the new version of the launcher? I guess that there is a lot of work to do, but when can we expect a new version?

    Changing the size of the icon folders would be a good idea , it takes to mutch place on the screen there are to big, maybe can make 2 or 3 size for all icon folders that we can select like :small, medium, big....., changing the place from the icon folders so wee can place it like we want-insert somes widgets on the same screen.....
    Color choice for the icon folders
    Changing wallpaper

    Hi Jay I saw your post and downloaded the apk but it would not install over the previous minix launcher because of both having the same signatures
