XBMC Launcher

XBMC Launcher


XBMC Launcher is a helper app that allows you to set XBMC/Kodi as your launcher without modifying the XBMC/Kodi app. Should work with any version as long as the main activity name in the XBMC/Kodi app remains the same.

Currently supported XBMC/Kodi variants:

- Kodi (Official)
- XBMC (Official)
- MINIX XBMC
- Beyond XBMC
- Plex
- OUYA XBMC
- SPMC
- Wasser XBMC
- TVMC
- VidOn XBMC

Requires: XBMC for Android (http://xbmc.org/download/) or one of the supported Kodi/XBMC variants

Source code: https://github.com/blunden/XBMCLauncher

NOTE: Other apps can be launched from the Programs option on XBMC's main menu.

Recent changes:
Version 2.1:
- Add a shortcut to Android's main settings inside XBMC Launcher Settings (works on Android and Android TV) as it doesn't show up as a launchable app inside Kodi/XBMC.

Version 2.0:
- Adds support for Matricom XBMC and newer versions of VidOn XBMC

Version 1.9:
- Adds support for VidOn XBMC

I Love It!!! I love this launcher. Gives me more of an openelec feel for my android box:) FOR PEOPLE COMPLAINING SAYING THERE IS NO WAY OF GETTING BACK TO YOUR OTHER APPS. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO INSIDE XBMC/KODI. PROGRAMS>ANDROID APPS. THERE IS ALL OF YOU APPS THERE. IF YOU WANT TO SWITCH YOUR LAUNCHER PROGRAMS>ANDROID APPS>SETTINGS>HOME. YOU CAN SWITCH YOUR LAUNCHER THERE.*I know I have all caps. I'm not "yelling" just want this to be notice. To help others. Also plz vote helpful for my comment so it can get to the top;)
