Chameleon Launcher for Android tablets now sports a more palatable $3.99 price tag
If you ever wanted to try out that innovative Android tablet launcher Chameleon, now is the time. The price just got slashed to $3.99 from $9.99, which, apparently seemed a lot to many, as app prices go these days, regardless of how much developer effort went into creating it.

The widget-based launcher makes the most out of the larger screen real estate on Android tablets, and is somewhat of a playground what can be done with the interface there.

Google is certainly starting to focus more on its tablet proposition, recently asking developers to step it up, in light of the affordable Nexus slates it came up with, the Nexus 7, and the high-res Nexus 10, aiming to expand the tablet ecosystem through low prices, as it can hardly compete with the iPad on the number of tablet-oriented apps right now. 

The original Chameleon project backers paid ten bucks on Kickstarter to keep it moving, so they might feel a bit irked now that the price is four, but should find some solace knowing that their sacrifice is for the greater good.

I'm one of those lucky Kickstarters. Not irked by the price slash, but more irked that the launcher is not living up to it's potential. I keep finding myself switching back to my default launcher. Chameleon apps work then break and take awhile to get updated and working again. The app wipes with major updates forcing me to reset the criteria and place widgets all over again. It's nice to be able to use 3rd party widgets though, that was a great feature that generally works.
