First look at AYAHome, AYANEO's custom Android launcher
AYAHome is AYANEO's own custom launcher and will debut with the Pocket Air. It integrates AYASpace for ROM management.
It features "a clean and minimalist UI, smooth animations" as well as "low resource usage". It also has an integrated Quick Tool similar to the one we've seen before in AYASpace 2 on Windows. It also brings FPS Thunder to Android, an FPS overlay, similar to RTSS.
To date, AYANEO have made a range of Windows-powered devices. However, this Retro Edition of the Pocket Air marks the company's first foray into the Android space. AYANEO have also announced their second Android device, dubbed the Pocket S — this is a more high-end offering using a new Snapdragon chip that's set to arrive in December.
