One of the great benefits of Android is that, with the right apps, you can have a phone that works like any other. For example, if you’ve ever found yourself green with envy over a Palm Pre user’s “wave” launch bar, then you’re going to be happy to know that you can have it on your Android powered handset, no problem.

The Wave Launcher is a bar that pops out whenever you execute the proper gesture. For example, touch the bottom of the screen and slide upward. It pops up and follows your finger as you move it. The icons on the wave bulge slightly as you select them, similar to the way the Dock works on Macs running OS X. It’s a neat effect.
