-- Description --
Do you also love Ubuntu as much as I do? Does it seem awesome to you to be able to have the Unity desktop as your Android launcher? No? Ok, bye bye. In that case, this isn't for you.
This work in progress will allow you to have the Unity desktop running as your Android home/launcher screen.

-- Reminder --
Someone in the reviews asked me to open source the app. Just a reminder; It's already open source. It's simply not a team project, because I believe it'd cause me more hassle than anything else. If you've got a fix or a new feature, however, do feel free to e-mail me the code changes, and I'll implement it. Credit will be given to those who helped me out, of course. The current code (it's not always the most recent code, because I usually don't bother to commit minor changes to the repository) can be found on Launchpad.

# Might not work on custom ROMs (like CyanogenMod) #

-- Notice --
It's a Beta, so if something doesn't work, or you have a suggestion, please let me know. Don't go drilling a Beta into the ground with 1 star reviews without actually telling me why you didn't like it, like some people are doing. Nobody's going to benefit from that.

-- Changes --
--- 0.3.11 ---
Wrote a new, overly complicated, algorithm for calculating the "average" colour of the wallpaper.
--- 0.3.10 ---
Fixed: Searching in the Dash only worked on Android 4.1+.
Performance optimisations.
--- 0.3.9 ---
Added titles to every Dash page.
Added search capabilities to the Dash.
--- 0.3.8 ---
When the screen is wider than 460 pixels, items in the Dash will be further apart.
--- 0.3.7 ---
Fixed: Alignment of items in the Dash.
Fixed: Duplicate items in the list of recently used applications.
Removed some animations, shortened some others.
--- 0.3.6 ---
The Home Dash now shows the recently used apps at the top, and the normal app list beneath that. The normal Applications Dash is still available.
--- 0.3.5 ---
Bugfix: After a lot of hassle, I finally found what was causing touch events on the right-most row of icons in the Dash to be completely ignored. Unsurprisingly, it was once again a bug in Android itself.
I learned a wise lesson: When the target platform is playing dirty tricks on you, use dirty hacks to work around them.
--- 0.3.4 ---
Split up loading the list of installed applications and restoring the launchers into 2 seperate threads. This doesn't mean it'll happen both at the same time, but it does mean that the Dash will already be available to the user, without having to wait for the other thread to complete.
Compressed the default wallpaper.
