The Xperia Neo V stock launcher displays a 2x2 grid containing the first 4 apps that a folder contains instead of a simple icon. Is there any other launcher that does this or something similar?

The stock Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4) launcher has something similar built in (it shows a cascaded view of the first three icons in the folder). –  GAThrawn Apr 16 '12 at 10:33
    
Make that an answer so I have something to accept :) –  Erik Apr 16 '12 at 16:25

This won't help people who are still waiting for their phone to be upgraded, but the stock Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4) launcher has something similar built in - it shows a cascaded view of the first three icons in the folder.

ADWLauncher EX has this feature as well. It can display either a generic folder icon or a circle with the apps within it much like stock Ice Cream Sandwich.

To change from Folder Icons to the Preview Icons:

  1. Go to your home screen
  2. Hit the Menu Key
  3. Go to ADWSettings
  4. Go to UI Settings

    Folder Option

  5. Go to Folders
  6. Make sure Show Contents is checked

    Options Within Folder

Where is the setting for this? –  Erik Apr 16 '12 at 17:27

The folders section or submenu doesn't exist on my device. Are you running ICS? –  Erik Apr 16 '12 at 18:11
    
I run Gingerbread and ICS and it showed up on both. It may be that I have the paid (ADWLauncer EX) version and it is not in the free version. –  Dylan Yaga Apr 16 '12 at 18:12
