Chameleon began life as a Kickstarter project that excited enough Android tablet owners to get fully funded. It has been readily available for months and has evolved into a very attractive and useful alternative launcher.
The multiple home screens can be configured using any combination of widgets to build just the right home screens. There are a number of widgets included in the Chameleon install that are designed to fit the look and feel of the launcher.
Any Android widget can also be used with Chameleon should the included ones not meet the user's needs.
What sets Chameleon apart from other launchers on Android is the ability to use context to completely change the home screens. You can have both a work and home set of screens for example that automatically switch based on device location or time of day.
