I dunno, somewhere in West Texas
I gave it a spin earlier on today and It doesn't seem like it's ready for prime time yet. Lack of configuration within the widgets (cards), numerous errors syncing with accounts, slow and laggy and almost to a point where it's unintuitive.

I like the minimalist feel of it and it has lots of potential, I just hope the developer can iron it out. Oh well back to apex :)

Even the video on their website seemed laggy =\

I tried it on my note 2 and had issues getting weather to sync. I also didn't like how the widget boxes left gaps between each other. I'd really like to use it but until those are fixed, it's a no go

I pledged $60 to the Chameleon Kickstarter project back in June of last year and I was heavily disappointed with the tablet version. It just didn't live up to expectations and there wasn't much I could do with it.

Once the bugs are ironed out I am sure it will get better.

And blinkfeed is static. You set it up and it stays. This changes what widget to show depending on how you have instructed it to show them at various times/locations etc.

THAT is why I am excited about it. Every other launcher simply offers a static setup. I like my phone changing the presentation as how I would have wanted it.

Dynamic is the key.
