360 Launcher: A Different Kind of Launcher

Many times in this world, products are developed in a specific country or language, and are unavailable to users outside of that area. It doesn’t happen as often in the world of mobile applications, but is still an issue that we can face. XDA Senior Member melvinchng encountered the same issue.

An official tester of the Chinese 360 Launcher, he decided to translate the launcher into English so that the members of XDA can enjoy it. The app is feature laden including:

•Download theme from its site
•Download custom lockscreen from its site
•Download wallpaper from its site
•Quick launcher widget (power widget)
•Built in clock widget
•Built in power saving widget (more setting requires 360 Battery Guard)
•Folder in Home screen
•Folder in Launcher
•Unlimited apps in a Folder
•Built in lockscreen
•Built quick system setting widget
•Icon transition animation in Home screen
•Icon transition animation in App Drawer
•Hide application
•Built in lockscreen with theme
•Drawer and charts has iPhone remove jitter effect
•Icon background
•Transition animation in app drawer
•Transition animation in home screen
•Launcher has tab to Apps, Music, Pictures and Video.
•Custom app in dockbar

The launcher is constantly being updated and has extensive changelogs due to it being in beta, but head on over to the thread here and give it a spin. Your friends will be jealous.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
